PHOTOGRAPHER. BRAND BUFF. YAYMAKER.
Hi there. I'm Stephanie Beaty, founder of YAY! and a storyteller at heart.
I spent the first decade of my career helping brands get noticed at PR firms and ad agencies like Ogilvy. From there, I continued freelance writing and marketing while running Lifeography, an award-winning portrait photography studio that captured families and kids across the nation.
After 10 moves in 20 years as a military family (including a year-long stint traveling the US in an RV), my crew recently settled into a vintage fishing cottage we're renovating in our free time. It's nestled on the banks of the Cotee River in my hometown, New Port Richey, Fla. -- a small yet vibrant coastal community we think is the bee's knees.
My husband and four homeschooled kids are always up for new experiences. Our quirky family adventures have been featured on Lifetime Television and most recently on Disney+ National Geographic.
If I'm not behind the camera or launching galleries that make my clients celebrate, there's a good chance you'll find me curled up with a good book, paddle boarding at sunset, or exploring the Sunshine State in our motorhome.
