3 Reasons We Include Hair and Makeup With Our Portrait Sessions | St Louis Newborn Photographer

Why do we include hair and makeup in our portrait sessions?

As moms, we often take the backseat especially when it comes to self-care. As a mom of six, I have been in your shoes preparing for our portrait sessions. I was always a mess trying to get everyone ready and never had enough time to get myself ready.

With baby #3’s newborn session, I showed up to the studio in my pj’s, slippers, no makeup, and my hair was a mess! I handed my baby to the photographer. Then I frantically ran to the bathroom to try to finish getting ready in a matter of minutes. With baby #4’s newborn session, I was up until 3 am the morning of our session. I was desperately trying to find ANY-thing that would fit me. I ended up feeling like our session was ruined because I couldn’t fit into any of my clothes with my postpartum body.

After these experiences, I knew I wanted to make things easier for my clients! Your portrait experience should be stress-free. I want you to feel like you were pampered and taken care of so you can focus on your family on the day of your session. This is why we not only include access to our client’s wardrobe closet but also professional hair and makeup services, either in your home or in our studio.


  1. We want you to have a stress-free experience
  2. We want to pamper mom
  3. When you feel confident, it shows in your portraits

Your newborn session should be a time where you can look back and remember a time of pure joy! You worked so hard to bring this baby into the world and now you should be able to relax and enjoy every second with your sweet baby. Let us take care of the rest!

A rating of 5 is not high enough for Kelly!! Kelly is an amazing photographer, was absolutely wonderful to work with, and was quick to reply to emails. Shes an upbeat and positive person, which made out photo sessions comfortable and fun!! Kelly is professional in more ways than one and I highly recommend her to anyone in the St. Louis area wanting some maternity and/or family photos taken!
