Welcome! Let's be Friends...

I am so ecstatic that you are here!  Do you value encapsulating life's important and beautiful moments into a photograph? Do you enjoy being silly, and engaging in laughter with your loved ones? Do you appreciate the beauty of nature and being outdoors? If you are looking for a photographer who appreciates genuine moments of happiness and love,  who enjoys finding humor in the littlest things, and loves the beauty of natural light, along with nature's incredible backdrops, you have come to the perfect place!

Welcome to my site! I am Stephanie Nembhard, and I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer who loves to photograph all the beautiful and diverse families of the DMV area. I specialize in maternity, newborn, and family photography, and aim to capture authentic interactions, allowing my clients to be themselves, while also providing plenty of guidance and feedback throuhghout the session. As a mother of two small children, I strive to make the booking process as clear, easy to follow, and stress-free as possible. Additionally, I aim to mirror that simplicity and efficiency during the session and delivery of client galleries. My ultimate objective is to have satisfied clients, who feel that their experience working with me is seamless and delightful, from their initial inquiry all the way to the delivery of galleries.

I look forward to working with you!

"Stephanie went above and beyond to make sure she got to know us on a personal level as a family so she can photograph us well. This meant the world to us because it evidently was reflected in the photos. They are personal, beautiful and extremely well done. We were concerned about not knowing how to pose/take photos, but Stephanie made us feel so comfortable and it made the session feel so natural, as if we had known her for a long time. We are incredibly happy with the photos and look forward to family sessions with Stephanie in the future. I highly recommend her to capture special moments for anyone."

The Process

Interested in booking a session? Fill out the contact form with your information and you will receive an email within 48 hours. Do you want to discuss details regarding your potential session? Schedule a consultation call to talk through the process, explain your vision, and ask questions. 

Once we have finalized the details, you will get a link to schedule your session. Upon booking your session, a retainer fee is due to secure the date. You will receive an email with the contract and invoice. 

The exciting day has finally arrived! We will meet at our set location and have our session, during which I will provide posing guidance. All you need to come prepared with is your smile and a positive attitude! 

Approximately three days after our session, you will receive a sneak peek  via an online gallery. The sneak peek will contain a few selected images from our session. Your full gallery of edited images will be delivered within 14 days of our session. You may download your images directly onto your phone or computer. You may share your gallery with friends and family. Since you have printing rights, you may order prints and products from your place of choice or via the online gallery platform. 

Every day is a perfect opportunity to capture life's beautiful moments
