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!
Here’s what to expect from the studio’s aesthetic and artistic style:

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.
Absolutely love my newborn portraits! The session was made to be very easy. We didn't have to bring anything or think of anything beforehand, which is perfect with a 2 week old. [Stephanie] has all the cute outfits, blankets and props you could want. The session itself went great! We actually got to sit and rest for a bit while she took pictures of my little one and there was plenty of time to accommodate his needs in between setups too. Before booking the session, the entire process, prices and packages were well explained. That way we had a good idea of what we wanted before the photo session and planned for it in our budget. After the session, we got to look at all of our pictures to choose which ones we wanted to buy and have printed. The quality is perfect! These captured moments are definitely priceless. The entire experience was very pleasant and we have decided to go back to Pure Natural Newborn Photography to have my little one's milestones captured as well.
Stephanie is kind, professional, and so talented! I did my maternity photoshoot with her. What a wonderful experience both myself and my husband had. The studio is cozy, and just perfect! Stephanie has a collection of dresses that you can wear during your photoshoot. I chose two beautiful dresses that worked perfectly with the chosen backdrop. She made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. We our in LOVE with our pictures! We highly recommend her.
Stephanie is a true professional artist. You really only get one shot at newborn photos, so I was very careful to research the person who would have the responsibility to do this for our second and last baby. HOLY! I couldn't be happier with our photos and prints, we got the family and newborn session done, she was so easy to work with that my 4 year old actually asked to have more photos taken! She knows the perfect angle for your face to look skinny, not show wrinkles or dark circles under your eyes, and somehow my husband looks 10 years younger (pre-edit!!).
Pure Natural Newborn Photography is by far the best newborn photography in the region. We absolutely love their timeless, upscale style and use of neutrals and textures. We have had newborn photos done for our 3 sons and were beyond impressed each time. Stephanie is truly talented, professional, personable and so very patient. She takes the time to ensure that the photos are perfect. We would highly recommend and will be back 😉
I loved our experience with Stephanie. It’s a very warm and relaxing atmosphere with a number of props and accessories. She’s incredibly talented and handles the little ones with ease, all while capturing beautiful images. I’m very happy with her work and the album she provided of my daughter.
When I showed up for the photoshoot, everything was already set up and the only thing I did was pass my baby off to Stephanie. I literally just handed her the bucket seat and sat back, then let her do the rest. Stephanie was very careful and confident. She moved slowly, meticulously, and with perfect precision.
Thank you Stephanie for your talented work and amazing approach, personality, empathy, patience and generosity while taking our maternity and newborn photos! Highly satisfied! Couldn’t find better than you! Happy mama!
Stephanie was very attentive to detail, super gentle with him and very patient with us. I still remember that day like it was yesterday. Her studio was very relaxing...something very needed with the exhaustion of a new baby. Her work is beautiful!
Stephanie is an absolute professional and it was a true pleasure experiencing our daughter’s first photo shoot with her. We are thrilled with the results and are pleased that we chose Pure Natural Newborn Photography. We were confident that we were in very capable hands. Stephanie took the time to fully prepare for our session, including making a brand new hand-made outfit for our daughter to wear! We felt that Stephanie took all possible measures to ensure that our photos would be unique and that they would capture the personality and energy of our little girl. We are pleased and proud to display the photos in our home and we were excited to present the products as gifts to family.
Stephanie was so wonderful with my 7 day old who was being so fussy which he normally wasn’t. Ended up getting amazing shots which melted my heart when I saw them. Highly recommend.
Stephanie, you are amazing! The photos of our little Ace are so beautiful and we are extremely happy with the whole process! We’ll definitely be back for baby #2!! Thank you so much!
Thank you for being so patient and kind during my Mommy&Baby session with my little Rosalynn. Even with the diaper explosion and my little fussy girl you made me feel comfortable and not rushed. Thanks for taking the time and being so understanding! I definitely recommend Stephanie for her beautiful photographs but also her great personality.
