Posed Newborn

When was the last time you threw out a photo album, a framed picture or even a single photograph? Chances are, you keep just about all of the pictures of you and your family that you ever had taken. Photographs are important documents reflecting a moment in time. That’s why we have labeled this page as an “investment” and not just “pricing”. When you purchase photographs or digital images you are purchasing an heirloom that not only can be enjoyed by you and your family but can be passed down to future generations for their enjoyment and treasure as well. When the first birthday cake is long gone, your baby’s tiny toes and fingers have grown into kindergartner size, you will still have these photographs to cherish. Thank you for considering Stephanie Laura Photography for your Pittsburgh newborn portraits!  We are looking forward to creatively capturing wonderful memories for you and your family!

We are currently offering newborn sessions through all of 2021 – please schedule when you are in your 2nd or 3rd trimester to guarantee a session!


All Sessions Include:

  • Photographer’s time and talent creatively capturing images and quality post-processing of images
  • Digital Download of edited images for printing (with a print release) in both color and black and white
  • The use of the many props available for your session
  • The photographer’s safety techniques, experience, training, and understanding of newborn baby’s comfort levels

When deciding on which package is right for you, please feel free to contact us with any questions. All newborn sessions are taken at our Cranberry Township, PA location.  Photos are to be taken when the baby is between 5-10 days old.  We recommend scheduling your session in your 2nd or early 3rd trimester.  If you have already had the baby and are within the first 3-weeks, please contact me as soon as possible to check my availability! 

We offer payment plans and a variety of options to make your payment including Check, PayPal, Venmo, and Cash (we offer a discount on this payment method as a courtesy for our clients – inquire for details).  You are always able to upgrade your package or purchase additional edited images (at $20 per image) if you decide after your session.

Additional health and safety measures have been added to enhance the experiences of your session.  Please inquire for details.

Custom newborn portraiture is about the experience.  We value the quality of images over the number of images.  Please review our portfolio so that you are familiar with our style. Please note all babies are different and specific poses and props are not guaranteed. We photograph our newborn sessions and milestone sessions out of our Cranberry Township location.   When you arrive for your session, I will have all of the props, backdrops, and color coordinating items set up and ready to go.  Parents can suggest particular color schemes, props, and accessories ahead of time by perusing our website and Facebook page but please note all babies are different and specific poses and props are not guaranteed. Stephanie enjoys putting together setups that go well together and we encourage you to sit back, relax, and let us capture wonderful keepsakes of your sweet new baby.  

Pricing is subject to change without notice (this does not apply to signed contracts).  Please contact me if you would like help stylizing your session and if there are items you would like to incorporate into your photos.  Photos typically take 2 weeks to edit as we hand-edit each individual photo and narrow down the highest quality images to edit for you.  Final image selection and editing are up to the photographer’s discretion. The total image is dependent upon each child’s cooperation with being photographed. Please peruse our Facebook page and website to get a feel for our editing style. We do not offer unedited images for purchase due to the nature of the product. Inquire for print pricing details.  Stephanie Laura Photography is located in Cranberry Township, PA and is offering newborn photography sessions in Pittsburgh PA as well as the child, family, and maternity sessions. Stephanie is considered the most experienced professional newborn photographer in the Cranberry Township and surrounding areas of the North Hills of Pittsburgh.  412-292-4399 for questions Please review our FAQ section
