Stephanie Lauder is a photographer located in Central Massachusetts where she lives with her children. She has always had a love of the arts, trying her hand at painting, sculpture, jewelry making and crafts. Stephanie got her start in photography with a gift of her first camera over 25 years ago and has been shooting ever since. What started as an interesting view on life has blossomed into a real love and enjoyment of photography.

Stephanie was influenced by her father’s love of documenting his own life with pictures and the enjoyment he received sharing it. While she enjoys photographing her own children, friends and family, she also has a real love of nature. Stephanie loves catching the beauty of a flower in the morning light or the sun streaming into the woods.  It is this and her eye for what others cannot see that makes her work unique.”
