Hey there!

Welcome to McFrederick Photography! I’m so glad you are here and can’t wait to get to know you.


I’m Stephanie. I’ve been the owner of McFrederick Photography for almost 8 years. I specialize in Families, Seniors, and Weddings. I also love taking photos of Pets!

I’ve been married to my amazing husband, Joe, for almost 11 years. We have 3 awesome children, Andrew, Chloe and Emma. We also have 2 crazy dogs, Connor and Lola.

A few of my favorite things (except my family and God!) are-

Coffee– It’s pretty much my blood type. I’m a frequent customer at the Scenic River coffee shop inside Beuhlers. So much so that almost all the ladies know my order. Their iced mochas are my fav!

Running– I started running in 2011 with a couple friends who encouraged me to sign up for a half marathon with them the next month. It was so much fun and though I’ve taken time off here and there I haven’t stopped! I’ve ran 3 full marathons, several half marathons and numerous 5k’s. Lola, my german shepherd is my main running partner and keeps me moving!

Binge watching Criminal Minds or Friends– Two of my most favorite TV shows ever. I often impress my husband with my very fluent Friends quotes.

Reading– I’ll admit, I love sappy love stories. Nicholas Sparks books especially. Safe Haven is my favorite. Last summer we went to Southport NC where it was filmed. It was so awesome that we are going back again this year!

And of course, Photography! It’s been a passion of mine since I picked up a camera after the birth of my second baby, Chloe. It’s become such a huge part of who I am. Growing up I never pictured myself (no pun intended) being a photographer, but now,  I could never imagine myself as anything else. I love being able to capture moments that you can look back on years later. Or how a single photograph can evoke so much emotion, even years after it was taken.


Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about me.
