Hello! Welcome to SBS Photography!
Thanks so much for stopping by. My name is Stephanie Brocavich and I'm the lady behind the lens at SBS Photography.
I have always had a love for photography. When I was younger my parents gave my first camera (a cute little blue Fisher Price camera) and I was hooked. I often made my family and friends pose for some styled "photo shoots". I dabbled a little more into photography as the Arts and Entertainment editor for my school's newspaper, where I learned some basic Photoshop skills, and was introduced the elements of graphic design.
Photography ended up taking a backseat as I pursued my degrees, and it wasn't until my husband and I brought home the cutest little pup, that my passion for photography resurface. When I tell you that my dog LOVES photos, I am not kidding. He will hold a pose, and stay perfectly still until you snap a photo. I quickly found that my camera and cell phone weren't cutting it for the adorable photo ideas that I had with my new model. I decided to invest in my first DSLR, and spent the next year studying how it worked, and learning how to compose images. Along the way I had some very supportive family and friends that let me practice (over and over) on them.
Now almost six years later, my passion has turned into my own photography business. I love capturing natural emotion and the connections between my clients. I love the challenge of creating unique sets for my sessions. I can often be seen (and heard) doing something to get a genuine smile out of my clients (including but not limited to singing "Baby Shark", "The Wheels on the Bus" , cracking jokes and making the occasional fart noise). I think of the wonderful clients I've worked with as friends, and enjoy watching their families grow.
When I'm not behind the camera I am the mom to a sassy three year old, and my five year old pup. I am also a full time middle school science teacher and a two season coach. I have lots of experience working with many different personalities (so no need to stress out if your toddler isn't usually into photos, I will try to win them over).
I love traveling throughout the state of Connecticut and getting to see all of the wonderful parks. While I do have a studio space in Southbury, I never turn down the chance to shoot on location (especially if it's a beach!) I love animals, and highly encourage my clients to bring them along for some photos.
I can't wait to talk to you further and begin planning your one of a kind session. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!
