Once you're booked, we'll set up a styling consultation (in-studio or virtual). Choose from flattering options in your own closet or from my client wardrobe for an effortless, stress-free experience. Then, I'll help coordinate looks for your family to ensure a beautiful and cohesive gallery.

Styling Consultation

Getting to know each other is a huge part of what makes a great session. It puts everyone at ease and sets us up for success! We will go over your goals for your session, wardrobe and location ideas to help design the perfect session for you. It’s also a great time for you to get all of your questions answered.

The SHP Client Process

full-service, from start to finish







get in touch

As your full-service newborn and family photographer in Northern Virginia and the DC Metro area, I'm dedicated to providing an effortless and memorable photography experience, complete with hand-crafted portrait heirlooms for you to enjoy in your home.

you're in the right place


Once I get to learn a little bit more about your family and what you are envisioning for your session, I can make recommendations accordingly. Do you like the idea of a water feature, woods, or wide open fields? Or perhaps you are envisioning a session in the comfort of your home? We’ll discuss all of your options during your pre-consultation.

06. where should we take our Northern Virginia family photos?

Yes! To me, pets are family, but please know that not every outdoor location allows pets. In addition, I recommend bringing along a friend on the day of your session to help care for your pet in between photos.

05. Can our fur baby participate?

In a virtual or in-person styling consultation, we will discuss what you and your family will wear to the session, what to bring, and anything else you may need to know in order to prepare for the big day.

04. How do we prepare for our session?

Absolutely, yes! As your full-service family photographer in Northern Virginia, I believe that life’s greatest gifts – our families – should be appreciated every day, rather than simply occupying space on the cloud. I’ve built relationships with high-quality, professional printers who share my mission to create treasured, heirloom-quality artwork for you to enjoy in your home, all while preserving your memories for generations to come.


I start monitoring the weather five days before your session. If the forecast is predicting rain, snow, or severe weather, I’ll reach out to you to discuss rescheduling options.

02. What is your inclement weather policy?

The first step is to reach out using the Contact form. After determining my availability, I’ll invite you to a virtual chat to get all of your questions answered. It's a great way to see if we're the right fit for each other!

"Let's say the important part up front - Stephanie's work product, turnaround time, and production value is phenomenal. She's personable, honest, warm, and excellent with her clients and subject matters.She makes sure to work with the client to identify what you want, what you expect, and what she offers and then you decide on the relationship from there. That's exactly what you should want - she's not running a fast food restaurant where you look at a menu and say "I want this." The end-product is exactly what you want.I'd recommend Stephanie in a heartbeat."

"From the moment we met it was very apparent Stephanie has a true passion for photography. I was so impressed with her warmth and attention to detail during our sons newborn shoot.I wasn’t sure at first how I felt about an in home session versus a studio. After meeting with Stephanie and hearing her talk about how she likes to capture real life moments in the home....I knew she would be a perfect fit! She certainly did not disappoint. We adore the sweet pictures that she took. I would definitely recommend Stephanie for all your photography needs."

"Stephanie was such a friendly and talented photographer to work with for our newborn shoot. During the shoot she is relaxed and patient, which is nice and accommodating for a mother of 4 who not only has to stop the shoot to nurse, but also has to take time to wrangle the other kiddos throughout the session. She's genuinely excited about what she does, which you can tell not only by her constant smile, but by her incredible work. She is a true artist who took her time to capture not only special moments of the newborn, but the other members of the family as well." 

Andrea n.

"Stephanie did our newborn photos, and the entire experience was wonderful! From the very beginning Stephanie works with you to understand how to capture your vision. She’s warm, friendly, professional, and you can tell she loves what she does. The pictures she got of our family, our baby, and even our dog are phenomenal, and her turnaround time was so fast. Once your photos are ready you can look through your gallery to choose which ones to buy, but I don’t know how anyone could choose just a few because they’re all so amazing. We’re so glad we found her! so glad we found her!"

haley B.

"I started with Stephanie more than 2 years ago for my first pregnancy shoot. I knew from that day she was the perfect photographer for our growing family. She put us all at ease and came equipped with props, gowns and a sense of calmness. Her talent is obvious when you see the pictures. She captures our hearts and souls!"
