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 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.

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.

Sometimes just letting your family be themselves, gives you the most unique collection of moments.

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.
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.
In most cities, maximizing natural light can be a challenge with urban structures blocking the sun, especially in Philadelphia or other east coast cities. Moving through the seasonal living in the Mid-Atlantic calls for creativity when trying to brighten gloomy, overcast winter days.
