Motherhood is at the heart of my business. When I am shooting a family session , I find myself drawn to the mother-child bond. Sometimes it will be wild and crazy, other times delicate and quiet. Nonetheless, it is what my heart longs to capture. While shooting, I look for details or moments during the session that make me feel something.
As a St. Louis family photographer there are a few statements that I seem to get over and over again when prepping parents for their sunset family session. A few are:
One of the perks of being a family and newborn photographer is that I get to watch my families grow! Typically, most of my in-home newborn families,. return at 6-9 months for a milestone session and then for a 1 year family session. I can’t really explain how much I enjoy watching these babies grow. I often recommend your home for milestone and 1 year sessions. I truly believe there is something so timeless and emotional about photographing your baby throughout the year in the place that means the most to you and to them. Kids, especially babies, are SO much more comfortable in their own home.
I was recently sitting down with friends talking about how we felt during our pregnancy, mainly the things we loved and hated. I was shocked at how differently each of my friends felt during pregnancy and even how much that varied pregnancy to pregnancy. I can totally attest to that after carrying 3 children!! Each of my pregnancies carried different stressors and different joys. The one thing I don’t have from all of my pregnancy is photos.
2019 is coming to an end. Can you believe it? What a year it had been for me, both personally and professionally. We welcomed our third and final baby in October 2018. Our little guy is by far the family favorite around here. Ha! He brings so much joy and laughter to our lives, I can not imagine our family without him. That is not say there hasn’t been adjustment period because there totally has and still is!!! Life with 3 littles and a thriving business can be chaotic at times. I have learned that saying NO and setting boundaries is so important for my sanity.
Late summer in St. Louis maybe one of my favorite times for an outdoor family session. The temperatures are just right and that beautiful golden fall light is starting to make it’s appearance. I was so excited to shoot this family again! It was a session filled with so much laughter and joy but it didn’t start out that way. When I met up with this family, all 3 kids were crying!
It took spending a fun morning with these boys to bring me back to my blog! In-home family sessions are where it is at for me! I will be doing a be push fo these sessions in 2020. Stay tuned for more details on that soon! I will always love capturing the craziness that having […]
The mama of these babes wanted a session capturing her kids just being kids. We took the time to grab some traditional portraits at the beginning of the session. After we had those, we went to field and let the kids guide the session.
