My Photography Philosophy, Stacey Hansen Photography

Have you ever wondered what drives someone to create their business, their prices, their style? It’s their Philosophy. And I’m going to explain mine. Why I charge what I do, what I strive to create for my clients and why why why! My Photography Philosophy, Stacey Hansen Photography

When I started in photography it was originally as a hobby and then created into a business. I’ve posted about that before. That post was all about Why Photography.  Today’s post is about my philosophy and what drives my session style, editing style, prices, etc.

Schedule and Sessions

Most sessions with me are quick and to the point. Except for my newborn sessions, most sessions are under an hour. I believe in getting in and getting the job done while keeping the family, kids or husband happy! I love providing a mini session for families so we can get the perfect amount of photos in a super easy time frame! The session still includes all the ideal posed photos but we are quick about it! Also, I don’t try to “fix” every single thing. It’s all about who you are and life. Let’s capture you in the moment, in real life.

Editing Style

Simple. I am a simple gal that loves simple editing! I use Adobe Light Room and I love it! It’s easy to use and perfect for what I want my photos and art to be. I rarely use Photoshop, like for real. Sometimes I use Adobe Elements but not much. I don’t do elaborate edits or color changes and stuff like that. I am simple and keep my editing so that the photos you get back are the real life. They look like you and your kids and they reflect what I actually captured! Don’t get me wrong, I do some small edits including lights, brightness, tones, etc. I fix blemishes and that type of thing. But I don’t do extensive editing. It’s just not me and doesn’t meet my style or philosophy.


I love making friends out of my clients. That’s one of the best things about being a photographer. Meeting real people, making connections, and being authentic. That’s what makes me, me.


This is such a huge priority for me. I want to be an affordable photographer. I want clients to LOVE their photos AND be able to AFFORD their session fee and PRINTS! Yes that’s right, I want all my clients to be able to print their photos. It’s not just about taking the photos and having a digital copy. THEY NEED PRINTED! And I strive to provide that experience for my clients.  I pass on great deals on Canvas Orders and Print orders so my clients can make their beautiful photos a reality on their walls. Since having a baby this has been a little bit of a hard concept for me. I want to be affordable but I also value my time away from my family so there is a fine line between the two. We are learning to space my sessions and say no – WHICH IS HARD! I love taking photos and fitting clients in but I have to put my family first. So even though I’m affordable, my schedule and calendar have a max. Book early, cause right now I’m booked a month out or more!

So there you have it. That is my Business Philosophy. My why. Welcome to Stacey Hansen Photography. Let’s create something amazing and memorable together!
