Hi, I am Stephanie benzaia.
I have loved Birmingham my entire life. I was born and raised right here in a suburb of Trussville. I grew up admiring all things photography. In 10th grade I took my first photography class with Mrs. Frost at Hewitt Trussville High School (I still have my original camera). It sparked my love immediately and I have never stopped. I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Business Management & Marketing. I want every single session to be fun, easy and when we are done for you to say “hey that wasn’t that bad it was actually fun.”
A little about my life when I am not working...
I am a Realtor with Keller Williams Trussville. This has been a passion of mine for a long time and I love being able to walk my friends and clients through the entire home buying process. I also spend my free time volunteering at the Big Oak Ranch, my kids school and my biggest hobby is all things house plants. I have a real problem. I am working hard on loving outdoor plants but so far the love just isn't there. I also serve at my church, First Baptist Church of Trussville. I help in our Children's Ministry, help when needed for photos and I teach a wonderful group of high school girls every single Sunday morning. I am looking forward to going to camp with the kids, middle school and high school students this summer.
My home life is just as fun. I have been married 14 years to my sweet and supportive husband Julian but if you ever meet him we call him Benny. I have 2 sweet and wild children that keep me very busy. Grayson and Jillian are my heart and soul and I hope I am able to leave an amazing legacy for them. We are those crazy cat people somehow we have 3 of the sweetest kitties. One old lady and 2 babies. We adopted a wonderful shaggy mutt named Buddy. He is always smiling and although he is a big boy he thinks he is a 5 pound puppy dog. My life is chaotic going from mountain biking, violin, ballet and church activities. We still find time for fun as a family. We love to explore all things Birmingham. We love the restaurants, special desserts and all things outdoors. You will notice when we travel we always go to the best ice cream spot! Ice cream and coffee are and will always be the best foods!
If you made it through all of this thank you! I look forward to getting to know you and your family and helping you create perfect moments that you will cherish for a lifetime.
