Stephanie de Montigny is the creative mind behind Pure Natural Portraits, and holds a national accreditation in newborn photography with the PPOC.
Her career began a few years earlier working on-site with clients, and in late 2013, Stephanie began welcoming clients to her dedicated home-studio for maternity and baby portraits, and returning clients for their updated family photographs. She prides herself on running a full-service studio and offering one-of-a-kind quality printed ART products that last a lifetime to her clients. Everyone deserves to feel the joy and sense of belonging that wall art brings, and Stephanie has a passion for making sure of it. She loves her career choice, and you can tell!
When she isn’t behind the camera, Stephanie loves to make new props for the studio, listen to tunes while editing images, and design unique art pieces for her clients. In her spare time, when she isn’t mothering her two kiddos, she can be found enjoying a frozen margarita with friends, at the tennis court with her husband, shopping for great vintage and thrifted finds, or elbow-deep in some sort of DIY project. Her post-pandemic hobbies include binge-watching & discovering new tv series while stuck under a sleeping baby of her own, impulse shopping for the studio closet, meeting all the people in her new town, and drinking coffee—lots and lots of caffeine!
At the full-service studio, anything that can be done to make your experience easier and more fun, is done for you. It means your photographer takes the time and effort to guide you through the pre-session planning process to help you choose the best artwork options to suit your needs, help you coordinate the whole family’s wardrobe (and access to the client closet), and help you pic the best location to create the image style you love. It means that the focus is on your enjoyment of the photoshoot, just as much as creating beautiful images and art pieces that will last a lifetime. The benefit of separating the portrait session from the artwork means the priority is on the experience, which is fully customized to your wants and needs, and that you get to customize exactly what you want rather than be limited to a predetermined package.
The following services, among many others, are promises towards clients and our community, to uphold integrity and to stand behind the reputation that has been built around the Pure Natural Portrait experience.
