Doulas of Memphis Spotlight: Cecelia Lucy Photography!

March 22-28 is World Doula Week, and this week on the blog Doulas of Memphis is taking the World Doula Week Blog Challenge hosted by Louisville Area Doulas! Today’s topic is to spotlight a local provider or business and our relationship with them. We've chosen Cecelia Lucy Photography, a Memphis birth, maternity, newborn, family, and lifestyle photographer. We love Cece and we think you will too! memphis newborn photographer


Doulas of Memphis and Cecelia Lucy Photography

It's no secret that Doulas of Memphis is a huge fan of Cecelia Steidinger, owner of Cecelia Lucy Photography. Cece started off as a professional friend of mine, and I had the privilege of serving as her doula. I used her for our fall family photo shoot, and when it came time to take photos for the Doulas of Memphis website, we knew we HAD to have her behind the camera! As a business owner, I come back to Cece time and time again not only because of her exceptional talent, but also because she values the same things that I do: quality service and personal connection. Cece's positive energy is infectious. She wants everyone she photographs to have a good time, and she has a magic about her that encourages even the most stubborn and shy to come out and play.

Maternity and birth photography

If you are pregnant in Memphis and looking for someone to do a maternity shoot or photograph your birth, Cecelia Lucy Photography is your choice for high-quality images you'll treasure forever. For birth, Cece goes on call much like a doula- your photography doula!- and is ready to come whenever it's baby time! She is a humble guest in your space and her ability to make others feel at ease is extended even into the intimate setting of childbirth.

After your baby is born, Cece can come to you within the first 48 hours of birth for a Fresh 48 session (see topmost image) where she captures some of the earliest moments of your baby's life on the outside. Lifestyle newborn photos can be done in your home, and posed newborn photos are done in her beautiful studio in Germantown near the Germantown Commissary.

It's not just all birth and babies with Cecelia Lucy Photography. She shines as a lifestyle photographer, and her photos will grace your walls for years to come! After we used her for our family shoot, I remember looking at my husband and telling him that this kind of quality is worth saving for and we would be making high-quality professional photography a priority. It's art and it's beautiful.
