I am Tori Stauffer, a Maternity and Newborn Photographer in Philadelphia, PA. My Photography Studio is located in Swarthmore, about 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Main Line.
As the leading Philadelphia Newborn Photographer, I value creating something truly special for my clients. It has taken many years of training to master Newborn Photography. The very first thing we focus on is baby safety and creating the perfect environment for newborns and their very sensitive systems.
Clients who choose me to create their first newborn pictures are looking for a unique experience and images that speak to them. When you find those images that make you pause, you will have found your newborn photographer. If that is me, we will begin creating the most amazing newborn session for you.
I don’t have the same newborn set that I use over and over for every baby. I create new sets and looks for each client based on our very important Styling Session. We will collaborate throughout the process making sure that what I create for you is nothing less than remarkable.
Finding the perfect Maternity Photographer for you is definitely not the easiest thing. You probably aren’t feeling 100%, you’re tired, uncomfortable, and not feeling so gorgeous with your growing belly. But I want to change that.
The pregnant women I photograph are not models…although they look like it. They will tell all you, I made them work for it. This is not one of those sessions where you just stand there wondering what to do with your hands. I am very specific with my direction so you will know exactly how to move and what to do. I have studied posing, angles, and lighting for years, and it clearly sets me apart.
I want you to feel amazing, and gorgeous, and fierce. My favorite moment of every session is that first time I show you the back of my camera. It will be an image that makes your jaw drop and you will say, “I can’t believe that is me.” But it is, and you are stunning. And the only thing that changed was coming into my studio and seeing yourself the way I do.
PHOTOGRAPHY EDUCATION AND MENTORING
I have been in business for seven years and I wish I had someone to talk to me about the business side of photography when I was starting out. Research shows that 50% of small businesses fail in their first five years. So what are you doing to prevent to that?
Many of us start our business because we love photography and we decided somewhere along the line that we could turn that into a business. How much of your time learning has been spent on learning photography skills? How much of it has been spent learning business skills? That’s what I thought.
It is important to understand your business. And it is even more important for you to be putting practices into place to create a profitable and sustainable business. Otherwise, this is going to be a really expensive hobby.
I teach specifically newborn, maternity, baby, children and family photographers. While I greatly admire other genres of photography, the business model is often very different and I might not be the best fit. I teach branding, client acquisition, creating a unique and remarkable business, and of course, the dreaded…pricing.
Contact me if you are ready to take your business to the next level and surpass your own expectations.
