filmstrip_collage_stephanies_photographsWe always get to see the lovely photographs, but we seldom get to see the face behind the camera and the art. The face behind Stephanie’s Photographs is Mrs. de Montigny. I specialize in newborn photography and baby photography in order to provide families with those precious moments. I also offer maternity, engagement, child, family, high school senior, and wedding photography.

The story behind everything is one I’m sure you’ve heard before.. At a young age, I discovered photography with my first film camera. When the digital area arrived, I was gifted my first digital camera. Back then the 1 megapixel camera was the coolest thing! Mom and Dad certainly liked the digital proofing system instead of developping roll after roll of film. I has since upgraded to a DSLR, trained in the art of photography, practiced on friends and family, in order to become a professional photographer. As with any domain, the education is never over and one can always improve their skills and techniques.

Now to get a little more personal.. I am a double graduate from the University of Ottawa in Spanish, French, and Teaching Math. I live in Quebec with my partner and three “children”: Sophie & Pippin the guinea pigs, and Lex the squirrel. I spend most of my spare time knitting, sewing, and crocheting my own props.  I am a vegetarian who loves to cook, bake, and experiment with new foods.
