Philadelphia Family Photographer


Portrait sessions with me are for families who want to capture everything that they are as a family: the giggles, the snuggles, the love-soaked photographs that will be an ever present reminder of the beautiful chaos that truly is a family. Sure, we’ll snag that holiday card photograph, but Philadelphia family photography sessions with me are much more than a chorus of “cheese!” through forced, bribery-induced smiles.

Children are what brought Veronika to photography; with a Master’s in Education and over ten years of elementary teaching experience, she’s been called everything from a “toddler whisperer” to “pied piper of children”, and has the ability to create joyful, authentic, and playful images of the love-soaked chaos that is parenthood.

Veronika loves to capture natural and candid moments between families. Her style is organic, connection-driven, and light filled. Sessions focus on simple, natural beauty and capturing authentic connections with a soft & organic approach. Family sessions are meant to capture your family as it truly is, with direction and gentle prompting to give families guidance through their portraits.

As a Philadelphia family photographer Veronika takes great pride in offering a luxury client experience which includes carefully planned & curated sessions for every client. All sessions include a phone consultation to discuss your vision and ideas for the session and access to the client closet and personalized styling for the family; no more wondering if everything coordinates or what photographs well!

Once you’ve reserved your session date, we’ll discuss location. We’re incredibly lucky to have many lovely locations in the Philadelphia area for your session. Whether it’s your home, park, the city, or anywhere else that is special to your family, we’ll document what you love about your family.

Before your session, I’ll send you a questionnaire to learn more about you, your family, and your vision for the session. I’ll also work with you to make sure everyone looks their best for the session, and put together several custom-made style boards based on your family members, favorite colors, and favorite styles. If you decide to borrow outfits from my studio wardrobe, we’ll find a time for you to stop by for a fitting session. You’ll have the chance to try on a variety of beautiful dresses and browse the sweetest outfits for little one.

On the day of your Philadelphia area family session, we’ll meet at the location and take some beautiful images! Approximately two weeks later, your gallery will be complete; you’ll be able to choose your images and artwork, and I’ll be there every step of the way to help you decide on the perfect photographs for your home.

from clients

  • “Veronika captured the true love between mother and baby so perfectly! The entire photo shoot experience was so much fun and not at all stressful. My daughter and I had a lovely time and the photos are amazing! I have never loved seeing myself in photos before, but these are actually something I will treasure forever! They are unique and special and I love the timeless, almost ethereal look. I’m so glad I decided to have these photos done by Veronika and I am already recommending her to family and friends!”

  • “The newborn session Veronika did for us turned out absolutely amazing. I wanted these photos to be timeless and of such good quality that we could hang them in our house for years. Veronika did not disappoint. The pictures are stunning and she was absolutely wonderful with our baby boy. I am so happy I chose her to capture this special time.”

  • “We just received our newborn photos back and I cannot say enough good things about them. They are so beautiful and I will cherish them forever. Everyone in our family and friends have been raving about how beautiful they are. Veronika was great to work with and she had our photos back very quickly. Her home and studio is beautiful and it was SO nice not having to worry about what to wear as you get access to her dress collection. Overall it was a wonderful experience and the photos are beyond stunning.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Mainline & Philadelphia Family Photography

When do Philadelphia family sessions take place? 

That really depends on your family! Some families prefer an early morning session to avoid late bedtimes, while others prefer the soft light that golden hour provides. For in-home or studio sessions, there is more flexibility with timing. 

How far in advance should I reserve my family’s portrait session with Veronika? 

Most Philadelphia & Main Line area families reserve their session 4-5 months in advance to ensure availability.

Do families have access to the client closet for sessions that take place on location, instead of in-studio? 

Yes! Veronika will personally style your family, with hundreds of options for children and over 170 dresses. 

Does Veronika offer beach sessions? 

Yes! Veronika offers a limited number of sessions in Cape May, New Jersey. 

Can I reserve a “mini-session” instead of a full family session? 

In short, no; while it can seem that young children would benefit from a shorter session, Veronika has found from years of experience that it’s actually the opposite. Children need time to warm up to the camera – as well as a new person and location – to ensure the level of comfort that lets their real smiles shine through. The candid, playful portraits that Veronika’s clients have come to love need time; time to play with your children, time to explore, time to snuggle up on a blanket together, twirling their hair in your fingers. “Mini-sessions” don’t allow for these portraits, which end up being her client’s favorites.

Do you offer maternity, newborn and milestone sessions too?

Yes! Click the links below to view more details.
