There are no words to describe Kyra but beautiful. For real, she is one beautiful newborn.  I am counting down the days until her parents make more babies because they were clearly put on this earth to do so!  What a blessing it was to meet this family. Mom and dad are beyond in love with her. We had such a special session. Lots of smooching Kyras perfect little face, and exciting moments when she decided to let us have fun with her. Instead of me commenting on every photo, take a minute and look at her features. At just a mere 18 ish inches, she packs a lots of beauty into one small person. Her HAIR! I can NOT get over her hair. And her to die for skin. Oh my stars it’s perfect. And her LIPS! Oh those lips. Dad… well, I can refer you where to get some locks for the doors:)

It was such a pleasure to work with this amazing family and their beautiful daughter, Kyra.  My job is so tough huh?:) haha

I got a phone call from Audrey’s mom when she was pregnant wanting newborn photos. When I called to speak with her about planning our session, I knew we would get along right away. If you know me, you know I LOVE clean white all about baby photos. Simple. I of course do color photos, as you know, but white is my all time favorite. Keeping the newborn or baby the main focus of my sessions is the most important thing to me. When you get TOO much color it can be distracting. There is always a time for color pop.  Trust me, I love it too. Notice my website? White will color pop :). For newborns, white is my favorite though. Totally timeless and simple.  Also, something I noticed is so many photographers only share ONE photo from a session on their blog! I can’t stand keeping all their sweetness to myself, it’s so much more fun to show you more highlights from a gallery. Plus, this way when you hire your newborn photographer, you will know what you can expect from a gallery versus just seeing one or a handful of photos. Sometimes newborns can be a bit cheeky and not want to sleep, so for me, I love to show a good variety of everything we got that day. Instead of spending a few hours on just a few poses, make sure you are booking with someone you know can capture plenty of shots, even in those non-sleeping moments. All babies are sleepy until they hear mom talk about picture day haha. Call it Murphys Law. I just like anyone thinking about booking me, no matter what the state of the baby, we WILL get photos.:)I do say quality over quantity, but just make sure you are getting more than 5 good shots:)

Audrey was NO different. She came in ready to party. I love the awake shots just as much as the sleeping shots.

If you are local to St. Louis and are thinking about a newborn photography session, make sure to contact me or give me a call just as you end your first trimester. I book months out so it’s never to early to hold your spot :). I love both lifestyle as well as posed session. See my newborn information page for more details to help y0u decide whats best for you! Hop over to my client lounge for general pricing, or email me to find out more:)

For photographers!!!!  GUESS WHAT! This ENTIRE shoot was edited with my new set for photoshop and MAYBE Lightroom, called Beautiful Light. Keep an eye on my Facebook page and sign up for my action newsletter to be the first to learn when it’s launched! It will be soon.

I can not even begin to tell you how excited I am about the new Iris Works program that was developed BY a photographer  (Meredith Gradle) FOR photographers (eh hem, ME).

Before this program I spent hours. I mean HOURS on the back and forth about information, contracts, invoices, reminders, thank yous, etc. I have been using Iris for a few months now. It. Is. Amazing. When you log on to your Iris account, you will see all of your to dos for the day. You see recent client activity (aka, what you set up for each client to happen, and you didnt touch a thing, Iris did it all for you). You see your calendar. You see the WEATHER. I kid you not. What you also see is how you are doing in terms of your goals. This program is amazing. It will send invoices for you. Note: it is NOT an accounting program, but it will invoice and keep track of payments for those invoices you choose to send. You know what ELSE is amazing?!!  For each client, there is a to-do section. Such as “cull images”, “send link”, “call my client to wish her a happy bday.” I mean  HELLO. Virtual assistant. SO. Amazing.  For the FIRST time in my life, I may actually have my deadlines and tasks under control. Crazy. It even has a location map! You can store all of your locations you love in here. I am not even kidding. Also, if other photographers add their spots, you can see those too! Want to keep your locations private? No problem. You can set it that way too:)

In phase 2, there will be even more things added. The ability for clients to view galleries. Purchase products. The list goes on and on.

Iris Works

I could write about this forever, but instead how about I show you some goodies:)

Dogs and newborns

does not get much cuter than that…:)

 

Are you ready to see a for real beautiful baby? This peanut is a doll and I loved every minute I got to spend with her.  Mom had booked me for a posed session with a lifestyle add on. I am so glad she did, as sometimes new babies are not having it while at the studio. We were having a hard time as she was just not getting full and had a hard time getting sleepy. Come to find out she had a bit of a tongue tie (totally common, Zachary had one) and is doing fabulous now. But at the time of the session she was ready to party!:) So the majority of our shoot we spent taking some loose awake shots, but did manage to grab a few posed shots super quickly when she let us:) This happens more often than people would think. Even the sleepiest babies wake up.  Newborns are not a fan of being naked. Even though the studio is kept at a balmy 85 degrees, they just would prefer to be swaddled up and snuggled. Can’t blame them!

So when we ended our studio session, I told mom we would spend extra time at her lifestyle session to make sure we got a ton of shots. I am SO glad we did.  She has dogs! Anyone who knows me, knows I am a sucker for dog and newborn photos. More often than not, our dogs were our first “children” and they deserve to be in the photos too!:)

Cute baby alert!

St. Louis baby photographer

Oh My CUTE! This darling little guy is getting SO big. Look how much he has changed from his newborn session!!! I just love baby photo sessions. They are so simple and easy and you just can not go wrong with a for real cute baby!:)

Mini baby sessions are available throughout the week at my studio in Wildwood, MO.  They are 20-30 minute sessions and include 10-15 edited digital files. They are perfect for grabbing a few perfect shots of your very quickly changing baby! One mini shoot is included in newborn packages as well.

Everyone always asks, “so what is best to wear for our simple baby shoots?” Notice the word, “simple” in the phrase :).  I adore light colored simple clothes, but like to tell families to bring one fun outfit as well. We change mid way through and its always fun to document your baby naked, in one light classic pretty outfit, then in something with a touch of color.

I am such a lucky girl to watch so many babies grow up! How cool is my job, right? For real.

I could kiss him all day. Love.
