Minneapolis area newborn and family photographer.  Studio located in Northfield, MN.

If you are looking for amazing pictures of your journey as a family, with sessions that are stress free and fun – you are in the right place.


As a mom myself, my goal is to make sessions stress free and easy for parents, while perfectly capturing your family in pictures.  Offering both digital images and heirloom quality prints and products that give timeless portraits to modern families.


If that’s what you are looking for….  Let’s connect and get your session planned.


Spring & Summer Due Date Newborns

Studio Milestone Session

Summer Family Sessions


My name is Stephanie, owner of Stephanie Bennett Photography. I am a Minneapolis area newborn photographer and family photographer based in Northfield Mn (just south of the twin cities).

I specialize in both maternity photography and newborn photography.

I also offer milestone photography sessions, and baby’s first year and cake smash sessions

In summer and fall I also offer family photography sessions, and high school senior photography sessions.


From start to finish, let me take care of you.

Each session includes digital images, what to expect guides, clothing tips, and pre-planning questionnaire that let me tailor the session to your family. 



Before you even book a session with me,  you are invited to visit the studio and we can discuss your session and get to know each other.  From the start, listening to your goals and wants is my priority, and we will build your session around that.  I also feel that connecting well with your photographer is a huge part having fun at the session and images that you love.


Studio sessions are laid back.  Most little ones arrive in jammies, we have plenty of time built into the session.  The studio is also stocked with snacks and refreshments, as well as toys and streaming services for older siblings.

Outdoor sessions are fun and filled with games to keep kids engaged.  We will get the posed smiling picture that everyone wants for holiday cards – but also capture the true spirit of your family.


This is everyone’s favorite part – and parents describe it as both exciting and emotional.

 Your images will be beautifully presented in a slideshow and some as wall art. This is when you choose your session’s included images and have the option to purchase additional prints and heirloom wall art, albums, and more.

Prefer to look at the gallery at home on your own?  No problem, viewing can be done online too.

We have had Stephanie take photos of our family for eight years. She’s so much fun to work with. She’s open to our suggestions and has a sharp eye for an impromptu shot. I highly recommend her for newborn and family photos. Her photos are high quality and are decorating our walls. We even talked her into taking photos of our daughter with our chickens! She said that was a first!

My family and I have been working with Stephanie for years now, both newborn and family. Her vision for the photos is wonderful. Her patience for working with fussy babies and feisty toddlers is unmatched. We’ve always been delighted with our photos and will continue to work with Stephanie to capture our family history.

We have gotten to use Stephanie Bennett Photography for our newborn pictures twice now I am blown away at every. Single. Image. She captured our family perfectly and I will cherish these photos forever. They are not only beautiful but also captured my rainbow babies perfectly.

Stephanie took my son’s newborn pictures and we were incredibly impressed. She managed to get our 2 year old to laugh and her easygoing nature was a blessing with a newborn. Tons of props, a lovely studio, and a very fast turn around with the gallery. We loved her so much that our extended family traveled to Northfield so she could take our whole family photos!

She’s amazing! Stephanie have us the best newborn session today. We were totally comfortable and at ease and she’s just perfect with patiently getting your baby to settle and get cozy for posed pictures. She has a million amazing props in her cute studio, and even has snacks for your toddlers 🤣. I was totally impressed by the whole experience and would highly recommend if you not only want great photos but a relaxed and comfortable experience for you and your baby.

Stephanie is the best! She is so great with our kids and somehow makes us all look put together. Her studio is warm and family friendly. She has the best newborn props and all of the photos are beautiful. She's patient, kind, and professional.

We have been going to Stephanie since our daughter was born in October of 2019. We just had our second milestone session with her for our daughters second birthday recently. She is amazing at what she does! She made our almost 2 year old daughter have a blast with her recent photo session, she normally fights us on pictures. I recommend her to all my friends and family. We’re not from around Northfield, we actually live and hour away, but Stephanie is worth the drive! If you don’t want to drive she also offers to come to you for a small price, which is very reasonable! She has a variety of props you can use and clothes. If you want to do a smash cake session, she offers the most beautiful cakes as well that is included in your session! She gets photos edited quickly and also gets sneak peeks out quickly too while you wait patiently for the rest of your session. She’s great with communication and working with your schedule for sessions. Her studio is absolutely beautiful and very organized! We’re so happy to have her capture our special milestones of our daughter and our future children to come!

Stephanie is a fabulous photographer! At 8 months pregnant, I did not feel my most confident, and I am forever grateful to her for the beautiful photos she took. She is professional, nonjudgemental, and patient. She has a lovely studio with an extensive array of dresses and accessories. I look forward to returning in the future! Highly recommended!

Decorate Your Home With The People You Love

While all sessions include digital images, I know that some families also want printed products  to display in their homes.

I offer a full range of prints and products from the leading professional print labs both nationally and internationally.  These products like prints, albums, wall art (including framed prints, canvas wraps, wooden prints, and more).

I truly believe that if you invest in professional photography, those pictures should also be printed professionally.  You can look over the many products I offer at the studio if you schedule a studio visit before your session, during your studio session, or at your gallery reveal appointment.

You can also view some of the available prints and products below.


Let’s celebrate your family, with sessions that capture the excitement, joy, laughter, and excitement of this phase of parenthood.
