family sessions, kids, seniors, family reunions, portraits
Family sessions can be 20 minutes or a full hour, and are booked in or and around the St. Louis area. All sessions result in safe, online galleries for 10 years and are easily shared and downloadable. We start each session with more formal & posed shots, then let young kids run around and play and document them in their natural state. We have access to a studio for an additional fee if needed. All sessions come with a print release for personal usage. Family sessions are best scheduled early in the morning or right before sunset, with Sunday through Thursdays being the most readily available. Extended family sessions are available for an additional fee over 7 people. Please contact us in advance during the peak season (spring and fall).
mini sessions-$250, Full Sessions-$300
newborn and maternity sessions
When we started documenting families, we really didn't think we'd fall knee deep in love with photographing newborns. Motherhood changes you in weird ways, and having kids really pushed our love of creating lovely images of babies into the forefront of our business. From the moment one finds out they are welcoming a child into their lives, through adoption or through a pregnancy, everything changes. The new addition encompasses so many aspects of your thoughts and dreams, and the world begins to revolve around the new person in your life. From maternity to birth photography to newborns, we love documenting brand new babies. Newborn sessions can occur when the new baby is 7-15 days old and in the comfort of your own home. We do minimal posing, and focus on the intimate moments and tiny details of the new family. Siblings are welcome to join, and we use items in your home that are special and meaningful to your family. Sessions can take about 2 hours, with many stops for feedings and outfit changes. Resulting images will be available in an online gallery to download and stored safely for 10 years. Maternity sessions can take 45-60 minutes, and are ideally done an hour before sunset. Please contact us before the 5th month of pregnancy to start the booking process for the maternity session.
