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.
Doulas are trained professionals who provide informational, physical and emotional support to you and your family during the pregnancy, labor and postpartum phases of birth. They work directly with other medical professionals, (i.e. nurses, doctors, midwives) to provide a safe and emotionally supportive environment when bringing a newborn into your world.
Birth Centers are blend of the at home-feel and care, while also being close to (or in) a hospital. You will be surrounded by medical professionals, with home-like care and more options for pain management. You will have access to showers, birthing tubs and space to walk and move around freely. Following a midwife model for delivery and care, they are also less likely to intervene during birth, allowing a more natural progression and a much less percentage of cesarean deliveries than hospitals.
When thinking about your outdoor family photos, the number one thing to consider is being comfortable! You will be moving, playing, city, laying, and you want to feel free to move around and engage with your family.
Spring is just around the corner and many clients are already looking to book their spring family photography session. If you know that spring family photos is something you want to do this year, then make it a priority by putting it in your calendar now. With after school activities, spring trips and gearing up for the summer, Memorial Day Weekend will be here before you know it.
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.
