This business literally began by accident. I started with one simple goal in mind, to create large photographic canvas prints of Cleveland for my own home. After some trial and error, I had produced a few pieces that I loved and hung them up. Next thing you know, friends and family were asking where they could buy them and literally purchasing them off of my walls. So in 2016 CLEbySAP was born. You can check out more of my Cleveland artwork on my Etsy page below.
That first year was filled with so many adventures around the city with my kids in tow, capturing new and exciting perspectives for my artwork. In the fall of 2017 I began attending local handmade markets and art shows. Throughout the year you can still catch me at several of these events, most of the time with my kids and husband helping out. My business, although my own artistic perspective from behind the lens, is truly a family business and is one of the best adventures we have taken together! If you're local or just happen to be in town, stop by my tent, I would love to meet you!
Soon after CLEbySAP took off, so did Stephanie Penick Photography. My love for this city goes beyond it's architecture and amazing lake views to the people who call Cleveland home. I love getting to venture around with families, seniors, brides and grooms, capturing those timeless images. Getting to work with clients that become friends is one of the greatest joys of my life! Having the honor and privilege of documenting memories others will cherish for a lifetime, is quite honestly, the BEST job ever! I am so blessed to be able to do what I love for a living!
I would love to chat with you more about how we might be able to work together to create something magical!
