Stacey Houston- Hey, Thats Me.
Wife to one… Mother of two… Photographer to many.
Although I’ve been passionate about photography since I can remember, I really embraced it once I had children of my own. Even more so after my husband deployed on his first tour of Iraq ( 8 years in country later). With my husband overseas I found myself capturing every possible moment I could so he could "be there". Images that made me "feel" is what I began to adore, it gave me the desire to learn more.
Five years and MANY $$ , here we are.
Capturing moments to cherish for a lifetime and being able to give it to another parent? Well, that’s one of the best rewards I’ve found in life thus far. I am also the official photographer for the Lake County Honor Flight- Being able to witness first hand the emotion these WWII, Vietnam, and Koren Veterans hold while visiting their war memorials - the experience its self is life changing.
....Pay it forward.....
What do I love?
Family that have become good friends and good friends that have become family, making my kids laugh, putting that sparkle in their eye, being outside as much as possible… Sun. Sand and Scuba, singing 80s songs loudly while driving (more so , OD and Beiber these days) I have a little bit of hillbilly in me as well (what? okay, maybe more than a little) Ripe strawberries in the summer (love!) Farmer’s markets, Youth Football Season (Go Eagles), Watching my daughter Cheer - My son compete- He's currently into MMA and trains under Kenosha's own UFC Champ "Big Ben" Rothwell- Its an experience watching your little boy step into an octagon... OH and of course my Cubbies - We bleed blue in our household- (yea..yea.. I know they haven’t won a world series in a "few " years , but Hey, this is our year... Seriously its coming !!)
EDITED : WE DID IT !! - Go Cubs Go!!
Chicago Cubs- 2017 WORLD SERIES CHAMPS
My camera at my side. Editing photos that make me smile …oh and let’s just say, Bertha, I consider my camera my 3rd child!
