The Details

Your Magical Storytelling Experience

The families that I photograph are at the heart of what I do. I strive to give the best photography experience that I can when you work with me. That is why I include with all of my collections:

  • High resolution, professional custom edited images with printing rights. Your photos are yours to keep and there is no obligation to purchase prints or other print materials (only if you want to)
  • I am an “all inclusive” photographer, meaning I deliver all edited images to your gallery. I do not make you pick and choose your photographs. I believe every image is a beautiful part of your unique story.
  • Expert styling advice and guidance, including personalized access to an online styling service.
  • A questionnaire sent to you upon booking that helps me better get to know your family and any preferences you may have for your photos.
  • Our relationship starts when you book your session with me. I want the process to be as fun and stress free as possible, so I am always available via email, phone, or text with any questions.
  • Full galleries delivered in a 3 week timeframe

"Stephanie was so wonderful to work with for our lifestyle newborn photos! She was very professional and we loved how the photos turned out. They so beautifully captured our family and our daughter in the first weeks of her life."

Your Investment

You will never regret investing money into your family’s story and memories. Photographs travel through the ages, passed through generations, always there as proof of your place and time.

Collections start all inclusively at $1,100. I’d love to share with you a comprehensive booking guide with more detailed investment information, so please reach out and say hello!

The Collections

I artfully document your moments, taking everyday scenes and turning them into magical portraits. I offer different sessions to complement your family’s unique story.

Frequently Asked Questions

All family sessions will take place within one hour of either sunrise or sunset. Why that time? It provides the most flattering light for portraits, and will eliminate any harsh lighting created by mid day sun. It also lends to some pretty amazing aesthetic elements in your photographs (Think sun flares and warm golden light!) Newborn sessions will take place indoors during midday hours, ideally between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. when natural light indoors is at its best.

All clients receive access to an exclusive online styling service, Style and Select. After your session is booked, I will send you a code with instructions. This will make choosing family outfits easy and fun! I will also include in your welcome guide tips that cover wardrobe and styling guidance. I provide advice on what to wear (both for family and newborn sessions), as well as some of my favorite places to shop for the whole family (for a variety of budgets)! I am also always available if you want to send me outfit ideas or choices, to help guide your decisions. For some of my personal and customized tips on easy and seamless styling, click here!

I have come up with a list of diverse, outdoor locations that are available to choose from for family sessions. I have personally scouted out these locations for photographs. They vary from gardens, to farms, rivers and fields. These locations are beautiful and natural, and I advise to prepare for outdoor elements (bug spray, tick repellant). If you have a suggested location, that is fine too! All locations outside a 20 mile radius of Red Hook, NY are subject to travel fees. Newborn Fresh48 sessions are done in hospital and newborn lifestyle sessions are done in-home.

I will help you! The beauty of lifestyle photography is that we embrace the mood and situation. I customize my sessions to fit your family’s personality. I will lightly guide your movements to create real genuine emotions. I will provide direction to let natural interactions unfold so no one has to feel stiff or awkward. This is your family’s story- we embrace the reality of the situation and let go of what we can’t control! It’s all good!

If you are sentimental about your personal space and are looking for a genuine glimpse into those first few weeks of your baby’s life at home, then this session is for you. They are baby-led sessions and are perfect for families that want a natural, personal, and imperfect way of documenting their newborn. Wait, imperfect? Yes! I don’t try to force your baby into certain poses and I don’t use props to create a scenario. Instead, I document what’s really going on- whether it’s feeding, singing, or rocking your baby to sleep-because whatever is really happening, I promise- it’s beautiful! Your gallery will include a mixture of candids, as well as portraits of your newborn that are natural and timeless. I also encourage you to customize your session to include heirloom keepsakes, which add layers of depth and emotion to your photographs.

It’s important to note that we won’t be using the entire home for photographs, but we will focus on 1-2 rooms where the light is best. There isn’t a lot to do for prep, but just basic tidying in the areas we will focus on. I will provide more info on this upon booking! Read more about a session with me here.

I encourage you to contact me as early as possible to secure your date! Fresh48 sessions will generally be done on day 1-2 of your newborn’s life, in hospital (this can be adjusted based on certain scenarios such as NICU stay). Lifestyle newborn sessions are ideally done during the first 1-2 weeks of your baby’s life, but can be scheduled later if requested.
