Co-Founder & CEO

Carla Stephan

Carla has spent her career creating and running businesses that bring innovative and relevant consumer products and services to the market. She holds both an MBA and Masters in Engineering from Stanford University. Prior to starting Sweet Me Photography Inc., Carla was General Manager of HP’s Retail Photo Services business for the U.S. region. In this role, she was able to immerse herself in the photo category and bring creative products to market that enabled moms to enjoy their photo memories in new ways. As a mother of 4 young children, Carla also experienced first-hand the frustrations of trying to find affordable yet high-quality newborn photographers for her children. These experiences became the catalyst for starting Sweet Me Photography, so that moms can find an affordable and high quality newborn photographer to capture their baby's first days of life in the convenience of their own home.
