St. Louis newborn photographer | Family Photography » Emily Lucarz Photography is an acclaimed newborn, child & family photographer serving the St. Louis, Mo area

I have just loved photographing newborns, babies, children and families.. oh… and dogs, in the new studio! We moved into our new 1700 sq ft studio in Chesterfield just a few months ago. It’s everything I could have ever imagined. We have so much room, and light, and…. well…. ROOM, to shoot! I have always loved white, and now I have LOTS of it! So bright, so clean.  So many ways we can shoot. I love photographing families in all neural (as seen below) or in fun color pop. You literally can do anything you want in this new space. I shoot in there all week. Full sessions as well as mini sessions.  The mommy sessions have become SO popular, as we tend to be the ones behind the camera!   Stay tuned for the studio feature. It will probably be in January as I have lots of little things to add in there for finishing touches, but you can see some updated on my Instagram as well as Facebook pages!

This session below was SO fun for me. I am so lucky to be asked to photograph tons of photographers and their families. It means the world they reach out. This one was so special for me. Meredith, from Heaven Sent Photography is just like most photographer mamas. Always behind the camera, and never in front of it. My heart is full getting to give her a little gift of some memories with her littles. Just a bunch of fun photos of mom and her kids.  How is this my job. Getting to photograph so much joy.:) Love her family to pieces! Next time we will have to get dad some white linen pants and do a full family. But Im SO glad she did this for herself!

I have totally loved photographing newborns in my new photography studio in Chesterfield. The all white room, floor to ceiling, makes for the perfect lighting situation. Even on cloudy yucky days.  How darling is this peanut! I loved the simplicity of her session. Here are a few photos from her newborn photography session :). Simple and classic will always be timeless and my personal favorite.  If you are in the St. Louis area and plan on booking a newborn photography session, remember most book months ahead. I take a limited amount of newborns per month to make sure I can get the baby photographed in that first 2 weeks of life.  In the studio, we can do posed newborn sessions, or more natural types of shots, but typically we do both! I also photograph baby in their homes, for lifestyle sessions.  I really do have the best job ever!  Call me anytime to talk all the fun details! Or just pop into the studio in Chesterfield to see what it’s all about in there.  Soon, the studio will be featured in a magazine, and I can’t wait to share it with you all!!!!  Just a few more touches and I will be blogging my new space as well. Make sure to keep updated on my Facebook page as I don’t blog as much as I would like:) Happy almost Thanksgiving!

Wow! I am so humbled again to receive this accolade from one of the the most prominent associations in the world for what I so luckily get to do for a living! I will never stop being humbled for how the photography world has embraced my work. Thank you again to the National Association of Professional Child Photographers for this honor for a little ole newborn photographer in St. Louis. You really know how to make a girl smile:)


I am a newborn and family photographer in St. Louis. Well… really my studio is in Chesterfield, MO. However, I serve the entire area. I photograph posed studio, natural studio as well as in home lifestyle newborn photography. I also pretty much photograph a family every sunset we have here in St. Louis. I kinda love my job. Just a little bit:)
