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 with Steph feels natural and she always makes it fun. My husband has always looked at professional photography like a chore because we were made to pose and do things that make us feel awkward and not like us. Then we found Steph!! We were genuinely laughing and having a good time together. She played music to set the mood for us and my kids asked to take her home with us.” – Tina H.
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.
Do not worry about finding the location, that is my job! I have a handful of favorites places to photograph, in Bucks County, Philadelphia and on the Main Line. For outdoor sessions we explore fields, water, nature. We can gather flowers and roll around in the grass. Lifestyle outdoor photography sessions give you the space to play and create new memories with your family. Think of it more as an evening spent together than a photography session.
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.
