Made-Simple Process

Timeless Portrait Session

heirloom printed artwork

They are only little for a short time.

I promise your children do not care about the things holding you back, like those ten pounds or sneaky greys you want to shed. They adore you for exactly who you are and how you look and are far more focused on the love and attention you give them.

Capture this time in your lives together, and you will look back on these portraits with pride and joy, and your kiddos will benefit from the self-esteem boost of seeing themselves happily belonging in their family unit every single day.

  • Intimidated by being awkward in front of the camera?
  • Confused about what to wear for your family portraits?
  • Overwhelmed thinking about the printing process?

Let me help with that.


We have received so many compliments on our attire and photos and have Stephanie to thank for this. We shall treasure our family for a very long time and proudly display our portraits.


Stephanie has great attention to detail, and her photos really capture true beauty. It was hard to select what photos to purchase because they were all so beautiful. We will cherish our artwork forever.


We absolutely love our photos. I am very awkward, and Stephanie is the only person who makes me feel comfortable in front of the camera, so we always choose her.



The Planning Experience

A quick phone call to confirm the basic details before scheduling your in-home pre-session planning appointment, where we will discuss your artwork must-haves, ‘vibe’ goals, wardrobe consultation, and I can answer any other questions you may have.

The Portrait Experience

An experience that would be just as fun without the end goal of printed artwork, where you get to spend time with your family, laughing and being silly, and truly show up as your authentic selves. I simply make sure to document it in flattering lighting, and provide interactive & candid prompts along the way.

The Ordering Experience

You just need to pick your favourites. I take care of all the design work and master retouching, and you get to enjoy your beautiful images and the dopamine rush from excitement and anticipation for delivery day & in-home installation of your ready-to-display artwork.

Your portraits stay with you long after the vacation ends.

As a parent of young children, I get how busy family life can be and that planning a portrait session can feel like just one more item on your to-do list.

This is why I love turning the whole process into an enjoyable experience by keeping everything simple and making all the decisions as easy as possible so that you can have fun with your family and look forward to coming back to create updated artwork of your children that seem to grow at light speed.


Stephanie de Montigny is a neutral-loving work-from-home parent raising babies & businesses at the same time. She enjoys relaxing with a frozen margarita after a fun day of thrifting, going on adventures with her husband and two littles, and collecting hobbies and new skills.

Stephanie’s goal as a Nationally Accredited photographer with over a decade of experience is to celebrate children and families by creating personalized artwork to document their childhood from pregnancy through baby’s first year and beyond. The perks of a full-service studio are all about making your portrait experience go as smoothly as possible and making your decisions as easy as can be. Enjoy the in-home pre-session planning, the prop collection & client closet, the hair and makeup services, the prep guide, the flexible timing for young children, the wall-to-wall delivery, and so much more!

No matter the stage of your family or the age of your child, it is always the perfect time to capture their joyful spirit and celebrate them with heirloom artwork. You are invited to set up a consultation call to go over all of the perks of a full-service studio and see how your family can enjoy the boutique photography experience.
