Mom and her kids in-studio session | St. Louis child photographer



I have just loved photographing newborns, babies, children and families.. oh… and dogs, in the new studio! We moved into our new 1700 sq ft studio in Chesterfield just a few months ago. It’s everything I could have ever imagined. We have so much room, and light, and…. well…. ROOM, to shoot! I have always loved white, and now I have LOTS of it! So bright, so clean.  So many ways we can shoot. I love photographing families in all neural (as seen below) or in fun color pop. You literally can do anything you want in this new space. I shoot in there all week. Full sessions as well as mini sessions.  The mommy sessions have become SO popular, as we tend to be the ones behind the camera!   Stay tuned for the studio feature. It will probably be in January as I have lots of little things to add in there for finishing touches, but you can see some updated on my Instagram as well as Facebook pages!

This session below was SO fun for me. I am so lucky to be asked to photograph tons of photographers and their families. It means the world they reach out. This one was so special for me. Meredith, from Heaven Sent Photography is just like most photographer mamas. Always behind the camera, and never in front of it. My heart is full getting to give her a little gift of some memories with her littles. Just a bunch of fun photos of mom and her kids.  How is this my job. Getting to photograph so much joy. 🙂  Love her family to pieces! Next time we will have to get dad some white linen pants and do a full family. But Im SO glad she did this for herself!

We are in the deep part of summer right now, which means many maternity sessions are held IN the studio! St. Louis summers can be VERY hot for very pregnant soon to be moms. However, to be fair, I LOVE simple maternity sessions.  A casual maternity photoshoot is simple to plan, stress free and all […]

Casual maternity photoshoot

Studio mini sessions are one of my favorite types of sessions to do. As any parent knows, to get a toddler to focus for more than 30 minutes takes a small miracle. That being said, sometimes parents get nervous that amount of time wont be long enough to warm up, especially with shy children. We […]
