I have been so excited to share this beautiful sunset St. Louis family photo session.  I am so lucky to have the job that I do.  Of course Im super busy all the time but the families I get to meet and ultimately get to become friends with make everything all worth it.  There is something extra special about the connection of families during photo shoots.  Moments between moms, dads and their kids.  After all my shoots, I get asked quite a bit, “do you think we got anything?” I always have to laugh.

 

I am not your normal pose your family type of photographer.  Families are not perfect. We don’t all sit still, smile for the camera and say “cheese”!. That word is actually outlawed at my shoots :).  I just had a photo session of my own family down in Florida. I can now appreciate the ability of a photographer to capture moments when kids don’t want to play along. Holy moly. Being on the other side was ROUGH!  :)

Ok back to this family photo shoot :).  I love them. We had a ball.  All I have to say to them is, good luck deciding what to print. Im pretty sure I will be making my OWN wall of your shoot somewhere in my house haha! Ok maybe my studio.:)

For real love this family. We realized we have so many random connections it was tons of fun. Amazing, amazing family. Big hearts. Love love love them! Best. Job. Ever.

How can you ever get tired of being a newborn photographer. I get to kiss and snuggle babies all day long. When a chubby newborn comes into my studio in Wildwood, MO, my heart melts.  There is something about chunky babies I can not get enough of.  We sometimes have a trickier time getting them to bend in half as their chub gets in the way! :).  But once they are posed, there is nothing cuter.  Kalder did not disappoint! Here are a handful of shots so you can enjoy her as I got to.

 

On  a side personal note. This frog pose that I do very frequently is done safely.  There are many new photographers out there whom have not been trained and it makes me nervous. So when you are thinking about booking your newborn photography session, make sure they have a ton of experience.  :)

As I sit her unloading my camera from my last few shoots, this shot stood out to me.  It was not planned, dad was not even supposed to be in any shots. Although I love daddy shots. The peanut came to see me for her newborn photography session. This was her at 3 months as she is starting her millstone sessions for her first year. The 3 month sessions are just mini photo shoot sessions. They document how fast babies grow. She was done with me after her 30 minutes and dad picked her up for some snuggles. She peeked over at me and I had to snap a picture. He eyes are to DIE FOR! What a peanut.

 

I LOVE that I get to see so many of my newborns grow. They all have a special place in my heart. I am one blessed girl with one pretty amazing job.

  • So beautiful! I always love those unexpected and unplanned shots, they turn into the best of the entire shoot.ReplyCancel

Dramatic backlighting is my thing.  This shoot was SO fun for me.  People ask me all the time if I specialize in newborn photography. The thing is, I don’t specialize. I LOVE newborn photography. I do.  I love posing little itty bitty newborn, I love lifestyle newborn photography, I love backlit mom images.  But there is a part of me that needs to get super creative at sunset. I supposed it feeds the inner artist in me a bit. When families book a photo session with me, they know I only shoot at sunset for this very reason. If you are a photographer reading this and would like to learn more about this type of backlighting, feel free to pop over to The Chic Critique as I taught a course on it not too long ago.   I even go over how to edit backlit images. Backlighting during shoots is SO much fun when you know all the little tricks to get your best shots.

 

With this session, it was meant to be miss Scarlett’s 1 yr photo session. Her older sister came along (they have a huge family). I am SO glad she did. We had a total blast driving and chasing the sun.  Here are some highlights from her shoot. LOVE.
