ST. LOUIS FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

Anchor 2

Does this sound like your last family session?​

  • It took several trips back and forth to the mall and an online order to get everyone's clothing coordinated, and you still weren't sure they were the right outfits.    

  • Your kids were exhausted and annoyed, and you started to sound more like a drill sergeant than a parent wanting to create warm, loving memories. 

  • Everyone was sweaty and overheating because you had to shoot at sunset...outside...in the summer.  

You have probably even asked yourself if it's worth it.

But here's the thing...

You're the only one who can document your child's life.

The good news is you don't have to do it alone. I can help you capture this time in your family's life without the tears (yours or theirs) and ensure everyone looks amazing and enjoys the experience. 

My specialty is creating gorgeous, finished products that are ready to enjoy as soon as they're delivered.

Shana has done 4 of my 5 kids senior photo sessions and will do the fifth one also when she's a senior. I was so impressed with the photos...

Bring me your independent toddler, your cranky teenagers and your dog who hates everyone who...well let's be honest...isn't you. 

I'M ALL IN.

In our family, we have four kids, ages 8 to 24, and a crazy mix-up of rescue pups, so there's not much that surprises me.

If your kids are perfectly behaved, your spouse is super excited about the session and everyone in your family loves having their picture taken, you're in a unique position. I've photographed more than 2,000 families, and I don't know many that fit this description (including my own).

 

And still you can have stress-free family portraits with everyone feeling and looking their best. From concept to installation, I'm here to manage every step of the process and create beautiful art of your family that is custom designed for your home.
