Stephanie came into our lives October 27, 2013 (Carter’s newborn session) and has since become “family” to our boys. Her attention to detail and nothing but the best attitude is the true mark of a professional. Stephanie makes you and your little one(s) feel like family from the first meeting throughout the entire process. The moments she captures with our boys are truly beautiful and something we will always cherish. Thank you Stephanie for your love, compassion and selfless time you give to bring these moments to families like mine.
Stephanie Lewis has been photographing my family for the last 3 years. When I found out we were having a baby, I knew right away I wanted Stephanie to do my maternity and newborn pictures. She is so creative and talented! My baby girl’s pictures far exceeded my expectations. Stephanie took extra time to make sure she got the perfect shots, and I love every one of them! Stephanie’s passion is newborn photography, and it shows in every precious moment she captures with her camera!
I am completely in love with the amazing photographs Stephanie took of my newborn son. There are not enough words to describe her patience, skill, love, creativity, and joy that she puts into the session. Just sitting back watching her with my 1 week old son left me with complete ease and amazement. It is so evident how much she loves working with newborns and capturing their most precious expressions. She has such patience and gentleness as she calms them to sleep during each shot and positions their little body for the perfect shot. I smile every time I walk by his newborn pictures hanging on the wall and know that I will always have them to cherish as he grows older each year.
In searching for a newborn photographer, several people recommended Stephanie Mashay Photography to me. Little did I know at the time, that this would turn out to be the best decision I could have made. From the very beginning, Stephanie was helpful and accommodating! My little one was born with some health issues that would have typically made photographing him a little bit of a challenge; however, Stephanie was PHENOMENAL! She simply used her talent to capture that moment of our lives even through our struggles. Our pictures turned out amazing! I highly recommend Stephanie Mashay Photography to every expecting mom!
My family and I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie after I messaged her one day before I ended up going into labor with our son, my third child. Even though my request was so last-minute, she sweetly accommodated me by fitting us in one week after his birth, the absolute perfect time. I was immediately impressed with how organized and enthusiastic Stephanie was: before the shoot, she asked me for my ideas and preferences so that we could use our time the best way possible when we arrived. We shared Pinterest ideas, and her excitement for the project seemed genuine and obvious. On the day of the shoot, she had everything I asked for ready to go, and thought of even more ways to make it proceed more easily- a heater and white noise maker for my newborn, Disney Junior to entertain my older children. Her skills both as a photographer and as the “baby whisperer” became evident from the start. She handled my baby so comfortably and made him feel so secure and happy that he slept almost the entire time! She also was very intent on making me happy- there were a couple of shots that weren’t easy to get (this is a newborn, after all!) but she just kept at it until I was satisfied. The end results were breathtaking. She was prompt in getting my proofs to me, and offered valuable insight into what she thought I should purchase. Now I have one of the most special periods of my life memorialized forever in the most beautiful way, and I have Stephanie to thank for it. I can’t recommend her enough. She is worth every penny!
There are not enough words to truly express how amazing Stephanie is. Her talent as a photographer is remarkable and undeniable. Every picture was outstanding and beautiful. However, she goes beyond being a photographer and makes you feel as though you are part of her family. She has an amazing gift for truly capturing each special moment, feature, expression, etc., which is so important since they all go by so quickly. She is able to find a way to make each picture personal, memorable, and lasting. She is able to take the experience from being a simple photograph and transform it into a precious memory. She takes such care in detail, from the time in the studio to the packaging of the pictures. She treated our daughter with such patience and kindness, which could be seen in the outcome of the pictures. She lets you know, beyond a shadow of doubt, that she loves what she is doing and your family matters. I could simply go on and on about her ability, talent, and the wonderful experience we had with Stephanie. I simply can’t imagine anyone else capturing those special moments and look forward to finding opportunities to work with her in the future.
“Pure love. Every time I look at the photos of my girls around our home by Stephanie, I can’t help but stare in awe. She truly captures the magic in those precious moments of your little ones’ lives. From our first session, we fell in love with Stephanie’s creativity, talent, and overall passion for her gift of photographic brilliance. She did such a beautiful job with our eldest daughter’s newborn shoot that we knew we had to use her for her first birthday as well. When our twins were born, there was no question who we wanted to capture our new family dynamic. We knew she had the patience and savvy with newborns to get the memories we’d want to keep forever. I am anxious to see the gorgeous memories I know she’ll capture of the twins’ first birthday as well.”
We have had such a great experience with Stephanie Mashay Photography. Stephanie is a dear friend and it was so special for us to have her capture pictures of our newborn son. She is patient and flexible to meet your needs as well as your child’s. Throughout the year, she worked with us at the beach and in a beautiful location of her choice for a one year shoot. Steph is creative, fun and shows such a love for each person she works with. We have been incredibly pleased with the final products of each session. Choosing one or two favorite pictures is impossible because Stephanie works so well behind the camera. We will continue to choose SMP to capture our memories because we have been nothing but pleased.
“I wouldn’t trust anyone else with capturing the most special moments in my life. Stephanie is a true professional from beginning to end. She is so creative and such a talented photographer. Watching her work with my newborn, 5 day old baby boy was simply amazing! She took so many precious and special pictures for us and I know they would never have turned out that way if we had gone to another photographer. The only problem you will have if you book with Stephanie is... Trying to choose which beautiful pictures you want to order (I wanted to order them all)! Simply put, she is the best around! Book with her today and rest assured that your photos will be absolutely gorgeous! “
“Stephanie is so great with babies! She placed my daughter in poses that I didn’t think a newborn could go. And when the shot wasn’t going the way her or I wanted, she was so patient to continuously try until it was perfect! I was blown away with the photographs she took. I have recommended Stephanie to all of my friends in the area because she truly is the best at her job You will love her work too!”
“We used Stephanie Mashay Photography for our daughter’s “Hello World” newborn session as well as her first year. During this time, she took pictures of our 4 year old as well as family pictures. We are extremely pleased with the quality of our photographs and the metallic paper is beautiful! During our sessions Stephanie was very patient and really took her time to capture great shots. The hardest part was deciding which pictures to order since they were all so great!!”
“I was amazed by the photos that Stephanie took of my 2 year old daughter Raegan. They were so natural and the expressions she captured were unbelievable. Stephanie allowed Raegan to do her own thing while she snapped pictures and this made the session more enjoyable for Raegan and I got the best pictures ever!”
