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.

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.

Maternity Self Portraits | Take Your Own

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.

What is Lifestyle Maternity Photography?

We want to capture you, in your life, with your people, among your travel trinkets and thoughtful fixtures. Though there is beauty in the grand and magnificent, there is also beauty in the simple and real. You are magical in your own right, doing the things that are soooo important when it comes to raising children and building a family.

Best Places to Photograph Inside: at home Photography Sessions

When families choose The Motherhood Experience, it gives me the time and space to create a story, a cohesive flow. I want the images to feel connected and feel like they belong with each other. In-home photography is the best way to thread these two chapters together. This is the space where your family grows and lives each day.

Maternity and Newborn Photography: Horsham, Pennsylvania

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.
