Malvern Portrait Photography Studio

Come visit my studio space in beautiful Historic Sugartown in Malvern, Pennsylvania. This historic property boasts acres of mature trees and foliage, 19th-century buildings, and even a stone ruin. Everything is well maintained, with tons of different textures and backgrounds to use in your photos all year long.

Inside, the 2000-square-foot studio is set up for meeting with clients and photographing portrait sessions. Plenty of natural light fills the room, and studio lights are set up for perfectly lit images. Canvases and other large prints adorn the walls, and both wedding and portrait albums are available for you to browse. I have props for newborns, children, and holidays, as well as a wide assortment of backdrops in tons of different colors: white, black, teal blue, pink, gray, ivory, pink flowers, gold sparkles, yellow bokeh, blue chevron, white lace, fur, and more. You are also welcome to bring your own props, blankets, or personal touches.

Portrait sessions photographed here at Historic Sugartown are unique; few photographers can offer professional studio portraits on backdrops and outdoor photos in such a gorgeous setting in the same session. I can accommodate the tiniest of newborns – or a large extended family – rain or shine.

Take a scenic drive through historic Chester County and see for yourself! The winding roads meander through horse farms, open fields, and lush trees to end up at the intersection of Sugartown, Spring, and Boot Roads.

Historic Sugartown Portrait Studio, White Backdrop

history of historic sugartown

The structures of this crossroads village were built by Chester County's early residents and served as a stop for weary travelers hauling wagonloads of goods to and from Philadelphia and its surrounding areas. The village took the name of Shugart's Town, after tavern-keeper Eli Shugart, but is now known as Sugartown. Inside the village was a general store, a saddler's shop, a barn, an inn, and a few private residences. The "Hannah Cheever House" was one of the residences and is now my studio.

Sugartown remained a vital part of the local community throughout the 1800s and is now a well-preserved window into the lives of these villagers and travelers. Historic Sugartown, Inc. now maintains the property and continues to educate its visitors about life in Chester County in the 19th-century. Weekend tours of the grounds are offered from April through December. Festivals, biergartens, and holiday events are held several times a year.

For more information on touring the property or learning about the seasonal events hosted on-site, check out the official Historic Sugartown website.

the four seasons of sugartown

Historic Sugartown looks different every season. Enormous deciduous trees bring color three seasons a year, and when there's no foliage left, there are evergreens and natural textures, holiday decorations, and sometimes even snow! The outdoor studio is the perfect place for seasonal portraits in a true "Eastern Pennsylvania" setting.
