“My wife and I had a fantastic experience with Stella. She was very professional and courteous, and guided us through a comprehensive photoshoot that involved in-home and outdoor/scenic pictures.
I really didn’t know what to expect from a maternity photoshoot, and it ended up being a very relaxed and enjoyable experience! My wife and I would definitely recommend Stella to anyone who is looking to get their special events captured in a fun and professional way!”

“Stella did an incredible job capturing maternity photographs for us. She came to our house with many unique and creative ideas for pictures, took us to different areas around our neighbourhood to capture the perfect photos, and made us feel a hundred percent comfortable during the entire afternoon! Her expertise was evident in how she knew exactly what to say to make us feel relaxed throughout the shoot. We love not only the amazing posed pictures she took but also the candid ones. Most importantly, the final products are memories that my husband and I will cherish and last a lifetime!! Thank you Stella for the best maternity photoshoot experience we could have imagined!!!”
