Sacramento Maternity Photographer | Lovely

“Lovely” is the word that comes to mind when I see the photos from this session. What a beautiful sight- a growing belly on a gorgeous mama! I’m so glad she shared her experience with me, what would the world be without beauty like this shared? It reminds me of a quote I came across once:

“For what is the point of having something lovely if you never share it? It would be like having a poem, a beautiful wild poem that no one else has and burning it.”

-Ally Condie


I love that my clients share their lovely moments with me, this is my poetry, my little stamp on this earth. I hope I get to share many, many more lovely photos! I never tire of helping families take the moments they want to remember and turning them into something they’re happy to share with others.

Hello, thank you for visiting my blog! I’m Stephanie, the photographer behind Sweet Beginnings Photography, a Sacramento Maternity Photographer. I live in Lincoln, California and my studio is in Roseville. Being a family and newborn photographer absolutely grabs me in the deepest depths of my soul. Creating memories for families to cherish forever is a dream! I love movement in images, I love connection, I love golden, dappled light and the way it dances and bounces around on my subject’s skin. I love airy images as well as moody images and I continuously dip my toe in whatever moves me for the day, which, I think is so important.

 I offer studio and on-site sessions. Studio sessions are available for newborns, sitters and expectant mothers. My studio offers beautiful, natural light creating special memories with an organic and airy feeling. I also offer the use of my studio wardrobe, taking the pressure off of you so that you can enjoy the experience without having to worry about shopping for your entire family. I would love to be invited to capture your family memories, I promise to help make the process fun and relaxing.
