WHO ME??

I'M Steffanie Kantosky


Hi! I am so glad that you stopped by and I really hope to meet you soon! Some info about me....
Lets start in the beginning! I only ever wanted to be a photographer. So when I graduated high school, I started going to school to shoot film and inherited my first Canon camera. I found a love for film and spending time in a dark room. I never wanted to shoot in digital format(actually I never even wanted to photograph people), yet here I am. Times change. I still have a strong love for seeing the images appear before my eyes but I now have a stronger love for digital photography. The time I spent in the dark room has gone. Now, I am spending more time behind a camera, doing the thing that I love. I believe in the experience and I believe that you should enjoy your portrait session from beginning to end. I have become friends with my clients more times than not. I joke a lot...I mean.A.LOT. I really will try and keep it to myself sometimes!! Anyhow, I can not wait to meet you..

Why do you offer prints? 

If I was to ask you right now, where the pictures that you took of your child at school, their sporting event or even where the pictures of you with your husband/wife are.....the most likely answer is going to be on your phone or computer. This is a digital age and images are printed and displayed on the walls less and less. I am a creator. My job is to capture memories for you and your family to come. Generations. Not just what the fashion for that year was or how good your hair looked...but to show your feeling and emotion. Your great grandchildren are going to want to see the details and feel what you were feeling at that moment. 

But I still want Digitals....

No problem! I do offer them, so you aren't out of luck. I look at Digitals as your back up or digital negatives. You always want to be prepared!

I found some photos on Pinterest...can you do them?

While Pinterest is an AMAZING place to get started and find a style that you would love, I will not recreate images that are someone else's idea. There are many things that can play into an image when trying to create a moment or a feeling, however, we will work on capturing moments and emotions that are made while we are together. Don't be afraid to look and send me things that you like. It does help in determining what you would like to get out of your session. 

Does the session fee include any digital images? What DOES it cover?

It does not include digital images. Your session fee will include your session planning, session time, editing of images and ordering session.  

Lifestyle

A lifestyle session is done in the comfort of your own home. We will photograph intimate moments between you and your baby as you do things such as nursing/feeding, bathing or rocking. These style sessions are great for remembering the details of your newborns nursery and capturing memories of your home and the time that you spent together during the first couple weeks after birth. These are things that our grandchildren and great grandchildren will want to know. 
We will bring lighting but minimal props and/or wraps.

Studio

In the studio we can achieve the posed, squishy baby photos. You will also have room to relax and access to a TV and internet. We have tons of props, wraps, blankets, headbands, hats...etc. so you do not need to bring anything for the baby's portraits, unless there is something sentimental that you would like photographed. The majority of the session will be in your newborn's birthday suit, however, there are plenty of stylish newborn outfits to choose from. But because of the nature of the session plan to bring an extra outfit to drive home in, in case your newborn decides to christen your new shirt!
