The Portrait Experience

I am passionate about my work and I absolutely love working closely with my clients, from session design all the way to print and product delivery. Watching my designs transform into stunning images and then creating custom pieces of art work and albums from those images is really what photography is all about. I strive to provide a boutique experience to each and every one of my clients. As a premier St. Louis newborn photographer, I am excited to offer this full-service experience to you.

Newborn Photo Session in St. Louis MO

1. Consultation

In preparation for your session we will have a consultation to go over all the details. This session is important because I want to be sure that the session is designed perfectly and uniquely for you, your lifestyle, home decor, wants, and needs. We will also discuss plans for images, be it an album or box, wall art, or digital copies. In addition I like to use this time to talk more in detail about what to expect at your session and how to prepare both yourself and your new baby for the session.

2. Session

My goal is for the session to be a positive experience, a time for mom and dad to sit back and relax. I will be soothing baby and cleaning up any messes baby may make. I will also be moving baby around and posing baby in ways to best show off their features. Please know that I take safety seriously when handling and posing newborns, therefore, I will not attempt a pose that I do not feel can be done safely. You are welcome to watch me work, or lay back on the couch and catch up on some sleep.

3. Reveal

After the session is complete we will schedule a reveal and ordering session for 1-2 weeks after the portrait session. This is when you will see your images for the first time. During this session you get to choose your favorite images and place an order for any prints and products you would like.

Once your prints and products arrive at the studio I quality check them and then package them up to deliver them right to your door, ready to be displayed in your home!
