The first few weeks after your baby is born are a complete blur and can so easily be forgotten that’s why these sessions are so important so you can look back and remember every little details of the most important weeks of your life. 

Embrace the Blur

Kind Words

“Stefanie is an amazing photographer and simple a joy to work with. Im still shocked by the photos she captured of my energy filled and challenging 6 and 3 year old sons. We have used Stefanie twice now for family photos and I’ve been so pleased both times.” 

"I am still shocked "

- Patricia Sutter 

Stefanie is amazing! We have used her multiple times to capture family photos and each time the photos turn out perfect. She’s wonderful with kids and creates such a relaxed and fun environment. Just an absolute pleasure to work with.

"wonderful with kids"

- Sara Ritz

We loved our session with Stefanie! She was able to get a bunch of great pictures of our four kids smiling (in under an hour!). She was great with both our newborn and the older kids. Her turn around was super fast and we loved every image. Can’t wait to use her again!

"we loved every image"

- Emily Thornton

Stefanie was so much fun to work with and she knew exactly how to work to settle a newborn. She did a great job capturing such a special time in our lives and the pictures turned out beautifully. She made it so easy to work with her and we would recommend her to all of our friends and family.

"such a special time"

- Courtney + Adam DuBois

I have a laid back easy going personality that can convince almost any participant that “that wasn’t so bad!”

We are a good fit if you are...

I take a very laid back go with the flow approach to my photography session. My sessions are all about having fun and connecting with your family. I don’t want you to be stressed at all I want you to show up and be present with your family and enjoy! I want you to not only love your images but to also enjoy the process as well. I am very experienced working with all types of situations so I can recognize if your child needs a break or I will help distract and redirect them. Trust me I have seen it all and have been able to provide beautiful photos in all situations. I will get your standard looking at the camera photos but my passion is to capture mostly candid moments that you will get to look back on and cherish forever. I do not overly pose my clients however I will help guide you with prompts to make the process feel more natural!

FAQs

I recommend within the first two weeks. They tend to be a bit sleepier and less fussy within the first two weeks but since these are lifestyle sessions I have shot newborns up to a month old before. It is really up to you.

What is the best age for newborn photos?

I bring a basket and a few blankets with me for simple individual pictures of the baby but I do not do any posing of the baby. If you have a special blanket or heirloom we can absolutely incorporate them into the session. 

Do you use any props?

I do not do any posed shots. These are strictly lifestyle sessions capturing your family exactly as you are in this moment. Because I do not use props we will not be putting baby in those adorable froggy or bucket poses.

Do you do posed newborn shots?

I would recommend two one for the family shots and one for individual pictures. 

How many outfits should we have for baby?

You session fee includes a two hour in home lifestyle session and a digital gallery to share and save your images. 

What is included with the session fee?

I typically shoot in the nursery, master, and/or living room depending on where the best natural lighting is so I just ask that those areas be clear of clutter. I have kids and completely understand so I do not expect your house to be clean just throw stuff in another room! 

Which rooms should I clean for my session?

Here is a Style Guide I created to help you pick the perfect outfits for your session. 

What should we wear? 

I will get you a few sneak peeks within 72 hours and then I will deliver the full gallery of best images within three weeks. 

How long until we get the photos back?

frequently asked questions

Because I only offer limited sessions each month I would recommend booking your newborn session about 2-3 months before your due date. We will set the date based on your due date and can adjust if you happen to go early or late.
