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.
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.
There is not a right or wrong time to photograph growing bellies. So much depends on how fast you are showing, how you are feeling physically and emotionally, and what protocol your health care practitioners have suggested for you. Generally speaking the 27-33 week window has been a common time for mothers to have a belly to show off, but still feel comfortable and free to move around.
