Hidden Gems: Meet Stephanie Mitchell of Stephanie Annette Photo

Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephanie Mitchell. 

Hi Stephanie, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
Photography was never a career I anticipated having. I always had a passion for being creative, but I always thought I’d pursue a career as a writer. When my sister-in-law was pregnant with my niece, they asked me to take their announcement and maternity photos. So many people reached out asking who took the photos that I decided to go for it and pursue a side gig as a photographer. My business has grown from there! 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It’s definitely not always been a smooth rode. I still work a normal 9-5 job, so my whole business is run in my free time/weekends. During busy season that means I’m working basically 24/7. 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I specialize in portrait photography! I love capturing engagements, and couples the most. I’ve branched out a little bit into weddings, but it’s my 2022 goal to do more! 

What does success mean to you?
Being creative is a huge marker for success for me. Having a job where I feel I can fully express my creativity.
