We aim to capture your child in several traditional headshot poses. Then we shift over to a lifestyle portion where we will capture images of your child playing with wooden toys as well as group portraits of your children together. 

An heirloom session provides timeless heirloom vignette portraits of your child.
Think of these images as traditional portraits that can replicate a tradition that is already a part of your family or something that can continue through the generations.
These images then become stunning artwork that is perfect for displaying in your home. Best for ages 6 months and older. 

What is aN HEIRLOOM Session?


timeless heirloom portraits

An Heirloom session provides timeless heirloom vignette portraits of your child. These images become stunning artwork that is perfect for displaying in your home. We are dedicated to keeping this cherished southern tradition alive as well as preserving your family's legacy.

timeless & Traditional imagery

Our clean, classic look keeps your images focused on your children and allows their unique personalities to shine through. Each session captures traditional portraits as well as "full body" lifestyle portraits of your child and siblings together. Our studio is located in Lake St Louis, MO.

"Kelly is incredibly professional, timely, and communicative, but most importantly, her work is stunning! She takes such care to ensure her clients are completely satisfied with their experience. We had a newborn shoot with her and we could not have been happier with the product. She has an incredible gift!

Erin, lifestyle newborn session

"We had a great experience with Kelly for our newborn twin photography session. Everything was straightforward and there were also precautions in place that made us feel safe during Covid. The photos are beautiful! I highly recommend hiring Kelly for your family photography needs - the precious moments she will capture will last forever!"

I offer custom framing services and my goal is to give my clients the most archival framing possible. The absolute best way to protect your prints for the longest amount of time is by getting them properly framed behind glass, conservation acrylic or museum acrylic. This gives the highest level of protection against UV light and dust. 

heirloom albums

Showcase your favorite images in a custom designed Heirloom Album that can be past down through the generations. Many families enjoy creating an album that highlights each milestone, giving a library of memories to their children. Others choose to create a First Year Album that is built overtime and completed with their baby's 12 month session.
