The Short Version...
I love trying new things, meeting new people, and traveling to new places. And if I can write about the experience or photograph it? That's the sweet life. That's like sleeping in a bed made out of donuts.
The Long Version...
I’ve been obsessed with telling stories for as long as I can remember.
Originally trained as a journalist, I’ve worked as an editor and freelance writer for magazines such as 5280, Pool & Spa Living, Sunset, and Women’s Health. I’ve covered topics of varying content and magnitude, some of my favorites being nighttime white water rafting, wine making, glacier camping, orienteering, and tracking down the best pancakes in Denver.
When I had a baby six years ago, I took a vacation from writing full time. And while raising a new little person, I picked up a camera. Soon enough, taking photographs and capturing my own story became my new obsession. Birthdays. School days. Trips to the grocery store. Trips across oceans. I photographed the story of our family as we traveled through life together.
I still shoot for myself. But nowadays, I also combine my love of writing and photography to create stories for others, whether they be editors, artists, local businesses, or families. I also blog about my mostly ordinary, every-so-often extraordinary life at blog.stephanie-powell.com
I love donuts, plane tickets, negative space, the ocean, coffee with too much cream, and last but most certainly first, James and Daxton. That’s me in a nutshell. What’s your nutshell like? If you have a story you’re ready to tell (whether it be in words, photographs, or both), let’s talk.
