St. Louis Child Photographer

Best Buds

I just love in-studio baby sessions. When my regular client (see the darling red head below) contacted me for a mini session, after she saw her full fall family shoot, I of course got super excited. She’s a DOLL baby. THEN…. her good friend contacted me  to do a studio mini with her son as well. The thing is, they are good friends! Their kiddos are almost exactly the same age and the are totally best buds.  They walked in and I of course got super excited. ANOTHER darling baby! TWO darling babies in one day. So we did both sessions that day, back to back, so we could get a few of them sitting together in-between their shoot times. This age is tricky because they want to crawl all over, but it made for a fun day. I just adore this age so much and I am SO glad we made this work where we could get them into the studio at the same time. They are totally best buds 🙂  Best. Job. Ever . 🙂

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 […]
