Stacey’s research on children’s privacy found its genesis in self-reflection. She’s been an attorney since 2003, a mom since 2006, and a photographer since 2011. While sharing her way through motherhood, Stacey began to question if her sharing choices was putting her children’s privacy at risk, and she started to question whether their life story was really hers to tell. Yet Stacey saw firsthand, through her own newsfeed and through her photography, how social media connects us, and how sharing our stories helps our communities.

How can families balance a parent’s right to share with a child’s right to control her own digital footprint?

Stacey’s first book, Growing Up Shared, will attempt to answer that question. It will be published by Sourcebooks in the Fall of 2020.
