A Portrait Experience Elevated from the rest...

The Elevated Portrait Experience by Sonja stafford


I often get asked "what makes Sonja Stafford different from other photographers?"

Photography to me is not just about taking beautiful photos; it's about being able to connect with my clients and capture details on what makes them, them. It’s how I connect with the person I am photographing to tell their one of a kind story.

I love creating vivid, romantic and timeless images with a relaxed fly on the wall vibe; creating portraits that focus on my clients and their uniqueness, because you are extraordinary.

One word that is often used when describing my work is 'beautiful' and that is the work I strive to create work that is beautiful, timeless, classy and unforgettable. I'd describe my experience as relaxed, fun and confidence boosting.

Through my lens my mission is to create meaningful portraits that reflect your special story. To create portraits that are YOU and for you to not only exist in life but to also exist in photographs that future generations can admire.

Sonja is AMAZING! She’s so sweet and makes you feel so comfortable. I booked a boudoir photoshoot with her and she knocked it out of the park! She sent me a gallery of images and I truly was happy with how all the photos came out!!! She’s very communicative and her turn around time is QUICK! I recommend her for any event!!
