Award-winning photography by Stephanie Lynn Huber

Stephanie Lynn Huber is a storyteller residing in South Florida where all of her neighbors are alligators. She believes that documentary family photography is a beautiful way to heal from a less than ideal personal childhood and that it is, at the very least, cheaper than therapy. She relates easily to children because she, too, is a short weirdo who prioritizes snacks above everything else. In her work she is always looking for the tiniest affections, the tiniest signs of people’s love. This is what she hopes to give to others with her photos: the knowledge that they are so very loved and loved well… or at least a laugh or two.

The Documentary Family Awards is an international competition in search of the insightful and meaningful ways that documentary photographers explore the interpretation of family.
