Timeless portraits for modern families


Congratulations on your little one!

My name is Stephanie, owner of Stephanie Bennett Photography. I am a Bloomington area newborn photographer based in Northfield Mn (just south of the twin cities). Many families make the short commute to my studio from Bloomington, MN. I specialize in both maternity photography and newborn photography. 

I also offer grow with me photography options to capture those big milestones of your baby’s first year and cake smash sessions.

moments to cherish

My photography studio is dedicated to newborn and maternity sessions.  I am a full-time photographer, with a studio filled with newborn photography props and maternity dresses.  I have everything you need for your newborn photography session, and most babies just show up in jammies and a full belly.

I have photographed over 300 newborns, have taught newborn photography and safe baby posing to other photographers, and named to numerous “Best of” lists for newborn photographers.

When you invest in a newborn photography session with me, you are ensuring you have beautiful portraits, your baby will be handled safely, and your session will be custom designed for your family to celebrate this exciting time.

I love being part of this special time for growing families as their newborn photographer. I take limited newborn clients each month, allowing me the time to work with families closely, and develop real friendships with clients.

Most newborn photography clients will return for additional sessions too. Getting to watch my newborn clients grow through the years at milestone photography sessionscake smash photography sessions, and family photography sessions is an added bonus.  I love watching sweet babies grow into little people and seeing their personalities develop at sessions over the years.

I know you have your choice of Bloomington newborn photographers, and I am honored that so many families choose me to document this special time for them.

This light blue fabric is another boy favorite.  This was a piece of fabric that I found at a local fabric warehouse while I was there shopping for fabric for a quilt I was making.  I just happened to find this amazing light blue knit fabric and realized it was a great option for newborn photography props.

Beautiful Photographs to Cherish 

Families that invest in newborn photography want to document this special time as their families grows, and because they know the value of a photograph.  You want to celebrate your growing family, with sessions that capture the joy and excitement of baby joining the family.  You also want timeless images to decorate your walls, and to share with family and friends.

newborn photography session with Stephanie Bennett Photography does that.  You will have beautiful images, a carefully styled session, and heirloom prints and products as ways to display your images.  In a time when you have a lot on your plate preparing for baby’s arrival and taking care of baby after birth, let me give you the peace of mind that everything related to your newborn’s pictures is taken care of.

Sessions Customized To Your Family

I take limited clients each month, to assure I give each family my full attention and customize each session to each client.  No two sessions are the same with me.  Before the session, we will discuss your visions for the session – you are also invited to visit the studio

Digital Images and Prints Included With Each Session

Each newborn photography session includes a specific number of digital images and matching prints.  I understand both the need for digital images in today’s world, I also want you to have physical prints from your session.

I also offer the option to purchase professional prints and products from your gallery too. I have carefully tested and researched the best professional products available from both local and international vendors.  Products offered include popular items like albums, canvas wraps, framed prints, small prints.  Additional products offered include acrylic prints, metal prints, framed canvas wraps, and many more unique and specialty items.  Products and collections are offered include various price points.  Allowing families to easily find their best fit.
