"When the ‘rubber met the road’ it was not a difficult choice choosing who my boudoir photographer was going to be. In fact, from following your work in this industry I already knew 2 or 3 years ago it would be you!! it was just a matter of time and getting into shape, plus those amazing albums you offer just snagged me.
Stacie, your artwork is sooo incredibly STUNNING! From the way you pose your clients to the lighting you manipulate, you truly are a gifted artist at what you do. I completely understand the day-in and day-out a photographer’s job can become mundane, but please never stop pursuing what you love. My hopes for you and Haute Shots are continued growth and bringing inspiration to others. You have a knack at making women feel welcome and comfortable because I honestly felt as if you were a close friend from the first email.
Thank you so much for helping me along in this vulnerable process and getting me comfortable in my own skin. I couldn’t have done it without your ideas and encouragement.
Also, I can’t thank you enough for working with me, for trusting me, and for dealing with me. Thank you for editing in detail and for designing my album to perfection. Thank you for understanding how important it was to me.
I would not change a single thing about my experience with you. You were the perfect photographer and I will forever be grateful. " - Mrs. K (Fellow Photographer)
"I'm seriously sitting here [looking at my photos in the gallery for the first time] typing this with tears running down my face. I can NOT believe that's me! I'm so stunned, but in the best way possible. Thank you so much. " - Mrs. D
"There are no words to thank you enough ... as a person who has faced a lifelong struggle with self-esteem, your photo session did more for my confidence in one day than I had been able to achieve on my own in a lifetime! I've never felt as comfortable in my own skin as I do now, thanks to your wonderful encouragements and our phenomenal session. Not to mention how much FUN it all was! You are such an amazing, talented woman, and your love for your craft is so evident in all you do. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime... I'll forever be a fan of Haute Shots!"- Mrs. D
"From those early conversations to the actual shoot and beyond, you made the work easy and enjoyable. Everything from the suite to your hair/makeup team combined to make the day all about her. With your easy-going manner, quick laughter and ability to put my wife at ease, I knew she would be in good hands after you all kicked me out of the shoot.
Fast forward to now – I just got back from a business trip, and my wife had received the book you prepared for us (by the way…if you don’t upgrade the size of your book, you will greatly regret it). I was eager to get home quickly to see what her “story” would be. The simple black box. The classy and thoughtful packaging touches inside. The black leather book. It was beyond words. Simply put…holy moly schmoly, it rocks! Each turn of the page brought an even bigger smile to my face and a deeper wonderment of my gorgeous wife. In some shots, she knows I’m here looking…in others, I’m watching her enjoy being herself. Her eyes and expressions range from innocent to playful to sultry. Every time I see those eyes (I think you know which picture I mean…), I fall in love all over again.
I always knew my wife was beautiful, but these shots let me know that she’s aware of that beauty. I would daresay the time she spent with you changed the way she sees herself. Thank you. You truly have a gift.” - Mr. K
"Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! That is all I can say. Thank you for making the boudoir session so much fun. Thank you for helping me to feel sexy in my new body. Thank you for your kindness and for answering all my questions throughout the entire process. I could not have asked for a better experience.
I felt like a new person walking out of the session today - somewhere between showing up in sweats, getting my make-up and hair done and undressing to the bare necessities I found something I had been missing - my confidence. I am not sure what happened, maybe it was the continuous vote of approval from behind the camera, maybe it was the ambiance and music, maybe it was the mimosa - I have no idea - but I do know that I loved everything about today and it will forever be one of my favorite memories. The suite was spectacular - and Kat and Whitney (Hera Beauty) are AMAZING!!! I loved how at ease you made me feel - it was such a wonderful time, I just don’t even know how to thank you enough.
Just on a side note - I completely turned heads when I went to work for a meeting tonight ( I did happen to go home and change into a nicer outfit to compliment the hair and makeup) - the other employees had never seen me with the hair and makeup done in such a way and were very impressed - I even had a few I caught getting second glances It was nice to see that kind of reaction!
Thank you again for all that you have done - I can’t wait to see the pictures. You are absolutely amazing and I will be telling everyone I know about you! " - Mrs W
" I enjoyed the shoot so much and can't wait to see the pictures. It was a true pleasure to work with you. You know just how to make people feel at ease and beautiful. It was so much fun! I told everyone at work how great you are and how beautiful your work is, so I'm sure you'll have many more shoots to come. Thanks again. Can't wait to see the finished results. " - Ms. B
" I can’t say enough about Stacie, Kat and Whitney! Each of you ladies is a true artist in your own right! Even better, it was a joy to share time with you ladies. This shoot was THE BEST momento of Vegas I could’ve ever chosen…for my husband AND myself! Being an “out of towner,” I took a gamble on setting this shoot up so far from home…lucky for me I hit the jackpot!! Stacie you rock! " - Mrs. A
" We got in late last night from our wonderful Vegas visit so I am just now getting "plugged back in" to the rest of the world. I just want you to know that I had THE BEST time on my photo shoot. You, Kat and Whitney are definitely the best at what you do and you were true gems to be around. I felt like I was visiting with old friends instead of people I'd never met! Please don't hesitate to use me as a reference if you ever have other "out of towners" who need extra reassurance in choosing a vacation shoot! This is definitely your calling!! Can't thank you enough! " - Mrs. A
" I just had to send you a note letting you know that you have an awesome talent. Mrs. J. just forwarded the three pictures you sent her and all I can say is WOW! I always knew my daughter was beautiful but you have put icing on the cake. Mr. J will be thrilled with his anniversary gift this year. " - Mrs. J's Mom
" Stacie made me fall in love... with MYSELF! " - Ms. H
" Stacie was professional, skilled, and fun at the same time. I've never seen myself look so beautiful, and it's a confidence booster every time I look at my pictures, which is often! Every girl should do this! " - Ms. E
" I just wanted you to know that the pictures of Mrs. R weren't good, they were absolutely awesome!
Mrs. R and I have been together for over 30 years and your work captured the beautiful, sexy, classy woman that I love.You've helped make this a birthday I'll never forget." - Mr. R
"I love that you can bring out my inner beauty, and I can actually see myself in a different light. It’s very touching. You just get me. I think you’re an amazing photographer and I’m just super grateful I had the opportunity to take pictures with you. Thank you Stacie!" - Miss M
"OMG! I can’t believe it’s me!! They look great…I can’t wait to see the rest! Thank you so much!!" - Miss R.
“"Thank you Stacie! I had such a blast! You made it very easy and the suite was beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing my gallery for sure!" - Miss L
"I’m so amazed by your work, you inspire me on so many different levels. Thank you for making me feel beautiful." - Ms. M
"I wanted to take a quick second this morning and say thank you for (boudoir shoot) yesterday. It was a wonderful experience for me. You made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. I will be recommending you to all of my girlfriends and guy friends too!" - Mrs. H
"He LOVED the calendar and I love being a true pin-up girl. It was a fantastic idea! Thank you for such a quality product. The only problem is he is already asking about next year’s..." - Mrs. B
