My name is Stephanie Maulding and I'm an independent retouch artist based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. I specialize in commercial and editorial work with particular emphasis on fashion and beauty, editorial portraiture, and architecture.

With a degree and professional background in advertising photography, I have 8 years of professional experience in the field. Outside of freelancing, I have run two graphics departments and have also worked with historical photos as a digital restoration artist.

When it comes to retouching, I believe in staying as loyal to the original image as possible. I believe in natural retouching on people and I do all of my retouching by hand, using only techniques that maintain fine skin detail. I have studied the ethics of retouching and the history of beauty standards extensively and I stand behind the results I produce. My goal is always to work closely with my clients to create beautiful, natural images that we can both be proud of.

Please get in touch for a consultation on your next project. I would love to work with you! // 408-712-4256
