I'm Steph, Philadelphia's Natural Newborn Photographer serving young families and expecting Mother's in Bucks County, the Main Line and Philadelphia areas.
These are lifestyle photos, using natural light, guided prompts and natural engagement among the people you love to create modern and unexpected portraits for your family.
My sessions are child-led as we capture the feeling of this time in a natural, organic way.
When is the last time you, yes yooouuuuu, were in a photo with your children? And not a selfie at the zoo kind of a picture, but a beautiful, connected, loving photo with your children. As a Mom, you are trying to do it all, wearing about 16 different hats a day and getting into photos with your babies might be at the very bottom of your list, if it makes your list at all. I know you have thousands of images of your littles ones doing thousands of things. I am sure you have plenty of photos and videos of your partner sharing time with your babies, but not all of us are documented with our families. Here is your push to get in the photos.
Each month I will feature a local Philadelphia family to share the inspo behind their nursery. If you are looking to a hire a newborn photographer in the Philadelphia area and you have a nursery you are proud of, be sure to mention that you would like some photos of the interior of the nursery as well. Tell your photographer what is important to you, so you can get capture photos that bring you back to this time in your life.
Your home is enough. Candid photography is a close-to-real reflection of milestones in your life, with family photos that are less posed captured in an artful way. Our goal is to tell your story and shine light and feeling on the loving connection among your family. We use guided prompts to help you engage with your family and children in a natural way. Sometimes just letting your family be themselves, gives you the most unique collection of moments.
Do not worry about finding the location, that is my job! I have a handful of favorites places to photograph, in Bucks County, Philadelphia and on the Main Line. For outdoor sessions we explore fields, water, nature. We can gather flowers and roll around in the grass. Lifestyle outdoor photography sessions give you the space to play and create new memories with your family. Think of it more as an evening spent together than a photography session.
Your newborn photos should reflect you. Feeling comfortable and enjoying this experience is what newborn photography should be. As your photographer, I am here to help you feel at ease with our morning and help every step of the way.
No props. No distractions. Just you in your own space, at your own pace. Newborn photos are intimate, emotional and a celebration of this new chapter in your life. For that reason, the more simple the photos, the more connection and emotion become the focus of your session. Newborn photographs are typically taken in the […]
Maternity photos are a way to show what life has been and what you are waiting for, in a natural, intimate way. We start with lifestyle maternity photography in your home, on the porch, or around the yard. Siblings and pets are around and we are collecting slices of your life as it is. The second part of our in home maternity photo session, we show off your belly and get lots of skin on skin. This is time for woman to feel sexy, celebrated and loved by their partner.
Hands down, the best part of your photographer coming to your home in the winter is that you get to stay cozy, warm and relaxed. There is no braving the winter cold with a new baby and no stress of traveling in inclement weather. Grab a tea, relax in bed for a bit longer and let the photographer come to you.
Our goal with natural newborn photography is to have a true representation of this time in your life. For that reason, I encourage most winter newborn Mamas to go the more warm, casual route for their photography session.
The best part of taking your newborn pictures in your own home is that you can include your four legged babies, too. Watching the bond between your fur baby and your new baby unfold can be the most beautiful thing. That is why puppies, dogs, cats, kitten and all family pets are always welcome to join the photos. In the session below, you’ll find these two goldens loving every minute of their maternity and newborn debut.
I get asked often if pets can be included in newborn photos and the answer if always yes. During our booking process, we talk about your pet’s age, personality and how comfortable they are around the new baby.
If the introduction between your newborn and your animal has gone smoothly and you feel confident including them in our session, we can bring them into the photographs in a variety of ways.
