How are you?
I'm glad you are here!!
My name is Carrie Stadelman, and growing up I was the little girl who had a raspy voice who everyone thought was sick(all of the time). The girl who talked too fast and too loud, who had buck teeth because I secretly sucked my thumb until I was 12, and had a laugh that could be heard for miles. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, pet lover, portrait photographer, and karaoke queen(ok ok, I secretly want to be Carrie Underwood!). I was the girl who dreamed one day of being more, helping more, doing more. I am still that girl(well minus the buck teeth and thumb sucking). I talk about a mile a minute(sometimes faster when I get super excited) and drink way too much coffee. I have about 200% energy all of the time.(well most of the time-I have my off days too!). I have a love/hate relationship with chocolate(I hate that I LOVE it so much). And I could not make it through a Michigan winter without my hot coco and marshmallows. I love a good cry; I think it helps cleanse the soul and clear the mind. I can always find a song to match my mood, inspire me or drive me. And you can frequently see me singing very loudly in my car! When I write, I use way too many !!! and too many :):):):):)(insert Elaine from that Seinfeld episode here) I am originally from " Up North" but have found my place here in Jackson, Michigan
I am a certified professional photographer since 2010 and received my Master of Photography Degree from PPA in 2016. I received a bachelor's degree from Albion College, and then went to study at the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. I was President of Michigan Triangle Professional Photographers Association from 2014-2016 and a member of Professional Photographers of Michigan and Professional Photographers of America.
