After a childhood spent chasing my dogs and family with a plastic camera, documenting the world around me and printing in my Mom's darkroom, I went to NYU and earned my BFA in photography in 1991. After traveling the world shooting for magazines for over a decade I settled in Los Angeles where I met my husband Ted and we bought a house where I learned to garden when not working in my photo studio. When the time came that my clients would no longer let me shoot film, I chose dirt over digital, I went back to school and got my certificate in Gardening and Horticulture from UCLA. I opened Plant and Play in 2010, offering horticultural consulting and family friendly garden design in the Los Angeles area.
When not gardening I still take pictures. Take a look at StephanieEllisHumphrey.com
