Hey, Hey I am Megan, THE Megan of Megan Stotts Photography.
I am a mom of 2 kids, wife to an endlessly supportive husband & the reluctant sweeper upper of fur from our Jack Russell Terrier. I started my adult life working my way through the corporate world & finally found my home sweet home as a photographer.
As a busy, working mom relying on coffee to get her through the day, I know just how much your family means to you. They are everything to you, but you are busy! So when we start planning your unique portrait experience, we will cover everything from locations, clothing and your print and product desires. Hair and makeup can be included in your session and I have a wide variety of GORGEOUS dresses for family, maternity and senior sessions. Newborn sessions come with complimentary use of my array of props, wraps, headbands and bonnets.
After your session, you can view your images, SAME DAY if you like! If not, we will schedule a viewing at a later date, no more than one week after your session. When viewing your minimum of 30 images, we will hand select your most favorite portraits, to be displayed on our most beautiful products. Our most popular products are our Framed Prints, Keepsake Image Boxes and the Megan Stotts Photography Storytelling Frames, a one of kind and unique heirloom print.
FOUR THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME:
-When I am not photographing, I can usually be found at home, in my stretchy pants and t-shirt, raising our two kids.
- I strongly dislike winter and snow.
-I LOVE sports. We watch football every single Sunday, keep track of my beloved Cardinals during the Spring & Summer and have a secret love for watching tennis!
-Blue is by far my favorite color! Navy, aqua, teal. All shades are my fav.

Together, we plan all the details of your session during your pre-session consultation. From locations, outfits, accessories and hair and makeup. Your images will be unique to you and showcase all of your personality and accomplishments. Approximately 7-10 days after your session, we will hold your reveal session. This is my favorite part, because here you get to view all of your best images (about 40), in a fun slideshow. From these images you will choose how you want to display your favorite images.
Some of our most popular products are canvas prints, keepsake image boxes or our Megan Stotts Photography storyteller frame, but we also offer smaller prints and of course, digital images!
Because each session and print order are unique, the investment varies for each session as well. I would love to chat about all of the different options we have and discuss how you envision displaying your images.
During your pre-session consultation, we will talk about exactly what you want from your session. From locations, outfits and any anxiety or insecurities you might be feeling about getting photos taken. With 2 toddlers, I know how hard it can be as the mom in a family session. It can be truly exhausting! Which is why from beginning to end, I will make your session relaxed and worry free. Once we plan the details together, you just have to show up and let me do the rest.
You will be able to view your images at your reveal appointment, about 2 weeks after your session. Here we will talk about how you want to display your beautiful family in your home, with products that are guaranteed to last forever.
From framed prints, beautiful family albums and the Megan Stotts Photography Storytelling Frame, all of our products are heirloom quality and the best of the best. Most families invest between $1000-$2100 in their family portraits, but each session is unique, so we can work with all budgets, to find the perfect products for you.
There is nothing quite like the newborn stage. It is the most exhausting, joyous, emotional, roller coaster ride you will ever go one. Your living off two hour chunks of sleep and adrenaline. You are so happy, so tired and so.....tired. But so happy! When we plan your session, we will talk about what colors you like, what your home decor looks like and what you want from your images. For your mini maternity session, you will have access to all of my gorgeous maternity gowns, which are made specifically for photo sessions. Your newborn session will take anywhere from 2-3 hours and are held in my studio space, in New Berlin, IL. Here, you can relax, take a nap and just watch your beautiful baby be photographed. Same day viewings are not available for newborn sessions, because of the long nature of the session and you likely needing your rest. We will plan your viewing 2 weeks after your session though, where you will see all of your AMAZING and BEAUTIFUL images of your new baby and family.
Here we will design all of your products, making this process so simple and easy for you, in this new busy and tired phase of life. The most popular products for newborn sessions are our storyteller frames, canvas prints and our gorgeous albums.
