The Portrait Experience

I am passionate about my work and I absolutely love working closely with my clients so that can have the ultimate portrait experience, 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 this experience is all about. I strive to provide outstanding service and products 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 Portrait Experience in St. Louis MO

1. Consultation

The consultation takes place prior to your portrait session. This appointment is so that we can sit down together and go over all the session details. The consultation is vital, because I want to be sure that the portraits are designed perfectly and uniquely for you. We will also discuss plans for images, be it an album, box, or wall art. In addition, I like to use this time to talk more in detail about what to expect at your session and how to prepare yourself and your family for the session.

2. Session

My goal is for the session to be a positive experience, for that reason, this is a time for mom and dad to sit back and relax and allow me to do all the work. I will be soothing baby and cleaning up any messes baby may make. I will also be moving baby around and safely posing baby in ways to best show off their features. You are welcome to watch me work, or lay back on the couch and catch up on some sleep while I pose and sooth baby. I have completed newborn safety training and therefore, baby is in good hands!

3. Reveal

After the session is complete we will schedule a reveal and ordering appointment for 1-3 weeks later. During the reveal appointment is when you will see your images for the first time. This is also the time you get to choose your favorite images and place an order for prints and products you would like to display in your home. Whether you are interested in wall art, albums, or portrait collections, I can guide you through the entire process.

Once your prints and products arrive to the studio, I quality check them and then package them up. I deliver your artwork right to your door, therefore, if you need assistance with displaying your portraits I can do that as well!
