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.

Photographing in locations that have meaning to clients is a photographers dream. This outdoorsy couple chose this location as it is one of their favorite places. Most of my photography sessions are indoors, so an outdoor maternity shoot in Eastern Maryland was unique. WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN PHOTOGRAPHING OUTDOORS There is a specific checklist […]

Outdoor Maternity Shoot in Eastern Maryland

There is a way to take your own, beautiful maternity self portraits at home with your phone. Tell the story of your growing belly for you.  Sometimes things are just for you. Not to be displayed in your home and not to be shared with the masses. Sometimes documenting your own life is a treasure that you do for future you.

These images were taken in two rooms and two rooms only. I could have done the entire session on the couch. There was so much fun, laughter and young energy here! So many little games and stories to tell and kisses to give. Soon this family of three will be a family of four and this time together will be a chapter in the books.

Why Maternity Photos with Toddlers?

So here we are, post pregnancy, post birth and we have this quickly growing baby who is changing everyday. You are feeding, bonding, playing, teaching, bathing and sleeping with your child, day in and day out, and before you know it they are off to kindergarten and you are left wondering where all the time has gone… how this is even possible. First birthdays and family sessions are the perfect way to:

So many of us are busy documenting life around us, we rarely get in the moments (aside from the selfie if we are feeling put together that day). But how often are you engaging with your children, enjoying your time as a Mom, with your children? Some of my favorite images from my childhood are of myself grabbing my Mother’s sunglasses off her face or seeing the way she looked over at me when I was being sooooo cute.

What is Lifestyle Maternity Photography?

My favorite place to shoot in Maryland- a fishing hole on The Chesapeake Bay- lies just north of Baltimore and offers a private experience for my clients. We move from the tall green reeds of the marsh, through the paths that lead to the calm bay shore. It is a perfect spot for exploring with young children, as there are birds, boats and jumping fish to be seen.
