About the Photographer

Stephanie de Montigny
Stephanie de Montigny
Family Photographer


Stephanie de Montigny is the creative mind behind Pure Natural Newborn Photography, and has been specializing in newborn portraiture for the last 8 years.

Her career began years earlier, but in late 2013, Stephanie began welcoming clients to her dedicated home-studio for maternity and baby portraits, and returning clients for their annual family photos. She prides herself on running a full-service studio and offering one of a kind quality printed ART products that last a lifetime to her clients. Everyone deserves to feel the joy and sense of belonging that wall art brings, and Stephanie has a passion for making sure of it. She loves her career choice, and you can tell!

When she isn’t behind the camera, Stephanie loves to sew and knit new props for the studio, listen to country tunes while editing images, and design unique portrait ART pieces for her clients. In her spare time, when she isn’t mothering her toddler, she can be found enjoying a frozen margarita with friends, at the tennis court with her husband, shopping for great vintage finds, or elbow-deep in some sort of DIY project. Her new pandemic hobbies include binge-watching old-school tv shows and discovering new series, impulse shopping for the studio closet, and drinking coffee—lots and lots of caffeine!

Her current personal project: Boss Mama Diaries

About The Studio

Here’s what to expect from the studio’s easthetic and artistic style:

The studio’s signature style is pure, natural & timeless with a minimalist approach. Your portraits are created using neutrals and organic hues, by combining luxurious textures with your newborn’s silky skin, and by incorporating pops of muted colours & earthy tones to compliment your home décor. The portrait studio is equipped with all the props, backdrops, accessories and baby outfits you could possibly need for your session.

Stephanie is specialized in newborns and babies, and only accepts a limited number of clients per month to allow for a personalized experience and custom artwork, so you can have comfort in knowing that each session is unique, and be certain your baby is safe in the caring hands of your trained newborn photographer. She works with families with children of all ages, in-studio and outdoors throughout the Ottawa area.

Once the images are captured, you get to go through the printed proofs from your session and choose your favourites. Each image you select at your ordering appointment is professionally retouched, and the selection of luxury print products has been carefully selected to complement the minimalist portraiture style and to provide you with quality, timeless, and beautiful one-of-a-kind ART.

Each image is professionally retouched to enhance your baby’s natural beauty, tweak any imperfections like a scratch or pimple, and remove any distractions or from the setup.

About the Full-Service Experience

At the full-service studio, anything that can be done to make your experience easier and more fun, is done for you. It means your photographer takes the time and effort to guide you through the pre-session planning process and walks through choosing the best artwork options to suit your needs. It means that the focus is on your enjoyment of the photoshoot, just as much as creating beautiful images and art pieces that will last a lifetime. The benefit of separating the portrait session from the artwork means the priority is on the experience, which is fully customized to your wants and needs, and that you get to pick exactly what you want rather than be boxed into a predetermined package.

When you get in touch with Stephanie, you will be able to chat all about the artwork options, your session and location preferences, and go over wardrobe options from the studio closet. Once you settle on a date, you will be guided through the booking process to reserve it. Leading up to the photoshoot, you will be sent a prep guide on how to best get ready for your session, and invited to go over your wardrobe options and help you pick the best outfits for you and your family. Then you get to enjoy the experience of the portrait session with the photographer. Once your photos are captured and ready for viewing, you will be invited to the studio for your ordering appointment where you will be able to look through all of the artwork samples, see examples of your images on your own walls, and place your order. The artwork will be available for you to enjoy within a few weeks, and home delivery can be arranged.
