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.
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.
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.
The newborn photography window will change depending on who you ask. For the type of work I do, the first 6 weeks of life, to me, are considered newborn. Here is what to expect during the three phases of this time period:
This Mother was a little unsure of hiring a professional newborn photographer to come to her home, but she was sooooo happy she said yes! This sweet baby has changed so much over the past few months that his newborn photos are now a memory to be relived.
Our time together should be enjoyable, your children should have fun, your partner should think “that wasn’t so bad…” We want feel-good feelings attached to this experience so the images can bring warmth and smiles.
I welcome all pieces of indoor newborn photography in hopes to give you true-to-life snippets of how this time really was, how this time really felt. I often hear client apprehensions in booking sessions with young children, sharing statements like “my kids would never sit for that”
