Meet the Photographer
Stacey Marie Photography / Stacey M Havill
Hello and welcome to my website!! My name is Stacey M Havill. I am a portrait photographer specializing in head shots, family, and wedding photography in the Bradenton/Sarasota, Florida area.
I began my love for photography as a middle school student. I started taking black and white photographs on my father's old Nikon film camera. He and I would develop those images in my family’s kitchen with his darkroom equipment. He taught me how to develop my negatives and how to transfer those negatives to paper. My favorite part of this process was watching the images begin to appear on the paper in the developing solution.
Since then, I have transitioned to digital photography. It is definitely a different experience from my middle school years, but I have been developing my digital photography skills through study and practice. I graduated from the Art Institute with my Digital Photography degree in 2015.
Though I enjoy many aspects of photography, including studio work, nature photography, and landscapes, I focus on head shots, wedding, and family photography.
