The Woman's Exchange of Saint Louis

Updated: Jul 14, 2023

Have you seen these sweet heirloom portraits in person yet? I'd love to know! If not, head to The Woman's Exchange of Saint Louis in Ladue to have a look, pick up summer hostess gifts and grab a bite to eat, all while supporting an incredible cause. I love hearing clients' stories of how they visited the tea room with their mothers and grandmothers and how it brings back such special memories when visiting with their own children.

If you're not familiar with the philanthropic side of this popular St. Louis destination, The Woman's Exchange was founded in 1833 and continues to be run by an all-women Board of Directors helping others achieve financial stability, specifically immigrants and refugees, women experiencing unexpected life crises, and female-founded entrepreneurs. I'm in awe of the ways in which the non-profit continues to make a difference in the lives of women right here in our own community.

Known nationwide for their iconic cherry dresses and suits, the artisan children's clothing is what heirloom dreams are made of. Ask to see "the binder" and you'll be in awe of the combinations of fabrics available to you to create something truly one-of-a-kind for a special occasion or keepsake.

They are also the perfect clothing selection for my "Love & Legacy" mixed media, children's portraits. Steeped in tradition, these beautiful artisan dresses and suits are the perfect "cherry on top" for the incredible children in your life and will add a tasteful touch to your St. Louis family portraits.
