Newborn Sweetness | Stephanie Cotta Photography

Stephanie Cotta is an award-winning natural light newborn and family photographer in Saint Louis, Missouri. She hosts newborn mentoring workshops in her studio and also travels nationwide for newborn and mentoring sessions. Her natural light studio gives the most amazing light and with a few space heaters and some white noise, she creates the perfect environment for newborn sessions. Her setups are unique and timeless, sometimes full of colors and textures and other times extremely simple and organic.  There is absolutely nothing she loves more than showing new moms a photograph from their sessions have them tear up at the gorgeous piece of art before them - "My goal is to create more than just a photograph but rather a memory, a moment of time, so that when they look back at their photographs ten, twenty, fifty years from now they can remember every detail of their new little one"  This particular newborn session is of baby Tatum, seven days new and absolutely perfect. Stephanie also has her SCP Newborn Posing Guide available for purchase {here} - complete with with step-by-step instructions of newborn poses as well as advice on scheduling the newborn sessions, prepping parents, soothing techniques, shooting strategies, perfecting each pose, posing order, studio setup and of course, where to get all of your session goodies.
