buh bye 2013.


I know.  I've been away for awhile.  I've put this project on the back burner and let other priorities take precedence.  

Issues with the facebook page have also caused me to ignore it.  I started to not receive notifications, and I realized my posts weren't being "seen," which then lead to facebook asking me to pay to promote my little page.  And that's not happening.

So, as 2013 comes to an end, I'm letting y'all know that the blog and facebook page will be temporarily ending, as well.  I'm debating on returning to my tiny snapshots corner at some point in 2014.  However, I haven't thought that much ahead.  

My life is going in a whole lot of directions right now (they're good directions - don't worry), and I feel that I simply cannot dedicate the time to this hobby of mine.  And I don't want to leave y'all in the dark anymore...

If you do need me, please, find me on my personal facebook page // Stephanie Martin Maiocco.  It should be set up to follow my public posts, if you wish.

Thank you again for the support during this mini adventure.  We're going to just keep moving. :)

happy 2014.

the frank family :: homecoming ceremony.

A solider's return home.

First time meeting his sweet, little Savannah...


I absolutely LOVED having the opportunity to photograph this Homecoming ceremony earlier this month.  I've limited myself to only sharing a few photos from this day, 
so the Frank family can enjoy all of them later on their own.  

Below are some of my absolute favs from a simply beautiful afternoon.  

Thank you so much, 
Haley, Joseph, and Savannah, 
for letting me 
(and the husband) 
be right there with y'all that Wednesday afternoon...

the app.


that moment when I almost lost it...
Savannah waving to her Daddy.

opening the doors.

his own little, screaming eagle.

fixing her hair.

playing with her little locks.

the Frank family...
Savannah was so over this.

supermoon in the country.

Did anyone else see the supermoon?

I was out late Saturday night in our front yard 
attempting to take photographs.

Widening the aperture and slowing the shutter speed way down
to where I had to take a deep breath every time before pressing the button...
trying to be as still as possible.

I really, really should have brought out the tripod.

But I kinda like the challenge. :)

Anyway, early Sunday morning, 
(5 a.m. ish - ridiculously early when you go to bed at 1 a.m.)
I staggered out in my pajamas with a gorgeous hair-do
to photograph it again at moonset.

But it was just too foggy here in the hollow.

Instead, I took a video of the birds chirping. :)

Below is my favorite from Saturday night...

Hope y'all broke in summer good this past weekend.

My little family and I certainly did...

Throwin' frisbee, grillin' out, and watchin' nugget run through the yard.

Welcome sweet summer.

to the dads.

I feel kinda bad that I did not do a "big" post for father's day like I did for mother's day...

Nothing against the Dads - I just didn't get around to getting everything ready!

However, I still would like to say happy father's day to my daddy.

The man who helped provide me with the absolute best childhood...

I just couldn't resist posting these beauties.

I'm so thankful he now has an active role in raisin' my nugget.

...and a special shout out to my baby's daddy.

It's been fun to experience parenting with you, Poot. :)

savannah + mommy.

A quick, little late night post.

Just wanting to share a few more of my favorites from Saturday's session...

I love all the pink alongside the cornfield. :)

And THAT bow - oh, little girls and their accessories!

Thanks, H&S.


this was most definitely the last photograph of the session. :)

{preview} savannah and mommy.

Yesterday afternoon, Michael and I had a super quick photo session 
with precious Savannah and her mommy.

Y'all know Savannah...I've had the wonderful opportunity to photograph her a bunch. :) 

I've been editing photos today, and below is one of my favorites...

Two sweet, strong ladies.
More photos coming soon. :)
