Steampunk Empire Symposium Vendor Spotlight : Tracie Jean Photo

Tracie Jean Photo


Tracie Jean Photo sees the world in frames, beautiful frames of forever. Each moment enclosed in its own eternity, burnt on a page, tattooed on the eye and hung perfectly in the hallowed halls of this CAMazing life. A picture can laugh, cry, love, be proud, humble or curious and that’s alot for some ink and paper.

A multi-tasker by nature, you’ll see me adjusting lighting, positioning subjects and perfecting details (and maybe in between, sipping on a latte). But, don’t worry…your moments will still be your moments because I have a way of blending in. I’ll just make sure you can always remember them!

So come dressed in your finest Steampunk wear and have a beautiful photo taken by Tracie Jean Photo right in our vending hall!
