Stacey Profile

Stacey Muniz, of Soul Threading, is originally from Chicago – a city girl at heart – currently living in Gainesville, Florida. Happily married to a supportive husband, with whom she has 2 kids, Stacy and her husband share very empathetic hearts. They love Jesus, traveling, the adventure, the escape and the beauty. That’s where photography comes into play. Nostalgia, documenting life – holding still a memory – is what they’ve found to keep them sane. Soul Threading is their photography business, and here – wherever that may be – they photograph anything that has love and feeling.

“Your workshop is so beautifully done Stacey. I REALLY enjoyed how this workshop is laid out and how it flows together so beautifully. Stacey did an amazing job of really connecting with the reader and incorporating examples along with some insanely helpful exercises. I felt as though I was really learning more about her as a person through how she speaks in this workbook.  Almost, like a sense of calm and great positive energy that flowed throughout.  This is a must take course for all levels of photographers, the wealth of information and tips that she provides is invaluable.  She will give you tips from marketing, to getting clients and retaining them, and most importantly how to really develop a lasting relationship with them!  Thank you so much Stacey for producing such a beautiful piece of art.”
