Visit us at our portrait studio or let us come to you!
For all indoor sessions, whether maternity pictures, a newborn session, baby milestone sessions, children’s portrait sessions, or family sessions, you have the option of coming to the studio located in my home in St. Charles, Missouri, just outside of St. Louis, or I can bring the studio to YOU*! At all locations, enjoy posed portraits of your family, as well as relaxed, lifestyle portraits that capture a range of expressions as you share moments and have fun together.
Safety is my #1 priority and I take great care to customize various poses according to the age & stage of your child. You can feel secure in knowing your family is protected with our full liability insurance, something few photographers carry as part of their business.
Regarding Session Locations, we’re often asked…
What are the advantages of coming to the studio?
Sessions held at our portrait studio afford us the ability to utilize more props and special items, like our rustic wood-flooring and backdrops. If you decide to come the studio, you will enjoy a family-friendly environment designed with little ones in mind with a place for you to relax with the family, complete with a TV, toys, bathroom, and light refreshments. We also have wi-fi and a place where moms & dads can work, if needed, while their little one is being photographed.
What should I consider having a photo session in my own home*?
Families like the in-home session option for different reasons. Some enjoy that it means less stress in getting the kids ready and out the door the day of. Others LOVE the idea of having pictures done their home where we can capture pictures of you snuggling on the couch, jumping on beds, playing a favorite game, or swinging outdoors. The options really are endless! No matter the reason, you’ll walk away with a fun mix of classic posed portraits and relaxed, lifestyle portraiture of you and your family playing together in the very place you do life every day. These are some of my very favorite type of pictures of my own family and I know you will treasure them as well!
I prefer an outdoor photo session. Do you do that?
YES! I LOVE shooting outdoors at sunset when St. Louis weather allows. It’s a great opportunity to add color and life into your images and is perfect for little ones who need to be on the move and having fun. It’s also perfect for family sessions as it gives us more room to spread out and just have fun together which is a big part of what I’ll be capturing for you. I love to recommend some of my favorite spots around town that are perfect for capturing your family’s portraits.
*Please note that due to the nature of travel and the additional expense it brings to my business, my standard service area for in-home sesison is an 18 mile radius from 63304 zipcode; for locations and homes that fall outside of this, I would love to still serve you, however, an additional travel fee will apply. See page 10 of our guide for more details.
