Meet the Photographer

Stephanie McFarland Photography from Sahsha Kochanowicz on Vimeo.

Stephanie McFarland has been photographing the area’s bellies and babies since 2010. In that time she has photographed over 900 babies, including numerous siblings of some of her earliest little clients.



Stephanie and her husband share eight kids and a geriatric labradoodle named Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, and are blessed to be foster parents, as well.  Her youngest daughter, Nadya Rose, was adopted in 2018 from Bulgaria and has brought endless joy to the family and to the many clients who’s sessions helped fund her adoption. Supporting small businesses supports families!



Stephanie’s studio is in her home, and while there are sticky fingerprints everywhere else, her kiddos and pup are prohibited from entering the studio, keeping it germ-free to new little people.

  1. You are the best. It was two years ago that you captured our son new born and 6 months photos. We recieve so much compliments about your work once folks visit and see them throughout the house.

    We are hoping to reach out soon to do more photos now that our little on is older.
