Lacey has always had a passion for photography and storytelling. She holds a bachelor's degree in Photojournalism from Rochester Institute of Technology, as well as a master's degree in Journalism from Columbia University. She has worked as an independent photographer for 15 years, shooting everything from weddings to corporate portraits to magazine spreads, all of which shapes her unique approach to B'nei Mitzvah photography.

Born in NYC and raised in West Virginia, Lacey has called Washington, DC, home since 2011. She lives in the Cleveland Park neighborhood with her husband, Sauleh, and dog, Swift. When she's not taking pictures, she enjoys kayaking, skiing, and epic camping trips out West.
