I have been a teacher for over 15 years and professional photographer for 5 years. My love of photography began over 25 years ago in middle school when I was chosen as the yearbook photographer. I continued on in high school as the yearbook and newspaper photographer then went on to study basic film photography at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland while I was earning my bachelors degree in Education. I continued as a serious hobbyist while earning a Master’s degree in Education at Towson University and upon switching from a film to a digital SLR in 2006, I opened Stacy Meadows Photography. As a member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Annapolis Women in Photgraphy, I am able to stay current to today’s photographic trends and networks with some of the best photographers in the area.
My main goal is to offer fun family, couples and children’s outdoor portrait sessions along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Convenient for those traveling, living or visiting in the Baltimore and Annapolis area, I can accomodate both beach and garden backdrops creating beautiful photos and lasting memories that you will treasure for years to come.
As for weddings, I enjoy photographing outdoor and beach wedding ceremonies and I have traveled to Ochos Rios, Jamaica and Ocean City, Maryland to photograph beach nuptials. I have also photographed weddings in beautiful venues on the Eastern Shore of Maryland as well as my hometown of Pasadena, MD. I only accept a limited number of weddings each year to provide my couples the best coverage possible.
Being a teacher first, I have also started offering beginner photo classes at my home in Pasadena, one on one photography workshops and mentoring, and photo tours in downtown Annapolis and in our many Anne Arundel County parks along the bay. In the next few years, I plan to add creative composition photography workshops in locations other than Maryland as my family and I continue to travel extensively in our family’s RV.
I’ve traveled for photography often and I am based between Baltimore and Annapolis in beautiful Pasadena, Maryland where I am a Mom to two little blessings- Ham and G (here on the blog). I also have a wonderful husband who works way too hard and tolerates my photography “habit” as long as he’s not in the photo! On the weekends when we are not holding our breath on the side of a football or baseball field we travel to fun locations with the family RV and we document it all on our family travel blog… www.meadowsdestinations.com
