the project

Of Lions & Lace is a project created to share encouragement and offer an empowering experience to ladies through photos and authentic conversation. I struggled (and at times still do) with my identity and being confident in my true self. As I have slowly learned to celebrate my unique beauty, I long to encourage others to do the same. This is more than just a photography business - it's a way to truly connect and empower ladies.

When you book a session with Of Lions & Lace, you not only receive these frozen memories, but you receive a personalized experience. I love meeting with you beforehand over coffee or FaceTime (depending on distance and availability) to truly get to know you on a deeper level. I want to know your story, your hobbies, your passions. We will then create a session that can truly reflect your authentic personality - because it is entirely worth showcasing. Our session will be fun and relaxed. We'll listen to some music and I'll get the privilege of continuing to get to know you. After the session, I will give you a gift of appreciation and then will deliver the photos to you within a week. To hold onto these relationships I create through this artistic avenue, I'll also write you - snail mail style - four times over the next year to stay connected.

These sessions bring me life and I hope they will do the same for you.

the name

When I was creating this project, I knew I wanted it to be branded based on lions and lace. I feel like lions are an incredible representation of the boldness and strength that God designed us women to carry. Lace represented the loveliness and beauty we were intricately created with. These pictures are reminders of who I really am when my identity is shaken.

So next time you look in the mirror, tell yourself how bold, strong, lovely and beautiful you truly are. 

the artist


My name is Kadi Dawn Stunz. I am an artist, writer and photographer searching for light throughout my journey on this earth.

I desire to share hope and encouragement through my artistic avenues. I long to point people to the cross of my Savior with vulnerable stories, community and truth.

I believe that God is writing a story within each of our lives and that it is worth capturing. 

I picked up a camera my senior year in high school to help a friend take some senior photos. I had no idea what I was doing but I'm so glad I had the confidence to try. Now, over seven years later, I am privileged to get to capture the art of your story as my profession. 

I married my husband on January 3, 2015, in the cold, snowy mountains of Northern New Mexico. We later adopted our Brittany Spaniel, Summit (who I love entirely too much) and then had our first little boy in July of 2018.
