a Full service portrait studio


I offer a full-service custom portrait experience for my clients, which includes wardrobe styling and session planning. As a mom myself, I know that planning a portrait session can be an overwhelming task which is why I have created a stress-free experience that will handle every single detail for you. My clients have access to my client wardrobe closet, personalized online styling program, and custom design services with the highest quality heirloom products available.

Use the exclusive online styling program to style your whole family from the comfort of your couch. You can use the outfit suggestions as a guide when shopping on your own or you can order any of the items directly from the site and have them mailed to your door. All items shown are photo worthy pieces!


I have curated a beautiful selection of clothing for the whole family to borrow from! Bump friendly and postpartum friendly dresses are carefully chosen from my favorite boutiques and stores like Anthropologie, Free People, and Spell & Gypsy. I have sizes ranging from 0 through size 24. I also offer a small selection of shirts for dads, clothing for children size 2T-10, and outfits perfect for babies during their milestone sessions, size 6 months - 18 months.

The client wardrobe closet

I custom design all heirloom albums as well as framed gallery walls. These designs include stylish framing options that will coordinate perfectly with your home decor in mind. My gallery wall program shows you designs on your walls to help determine the best size and layout, so you do not have to worry about what size print is right for YOUR walls. I will do all the work for you so you can sit back and enjoy your portraits!

Custom Design Services and Wall Art Installation


I work with the best professional hair & makeup artists in St. Louis to pamper my clients before their session. We can plan for your hair and makeup to be done in-studio or in your home. This option can be added-on to any session.

A luxury portrait experience

The Process

I offer a custom service at every step of the way to provide a stress free experience for you, from styling & planning, to your final artwork design and install. All collections are designed to offer you a finished product along with your digital files. There's nothing better than a family heirloom that is destined to be in the hands of your great-great grandchildren one day.

Planning all of the details of a portrait session is stressful, overwhelming, and time consuming, especially when it comes to choosing wardrobe for your whole family that will coordinate perfectly. 

I am here to help guide you in those decisions by offering a planning and styling consultation before your session. Our consultation will help plan out your session location and go over wardrobe selections. As well as create a plan for your session that captures your vision.

The type of session, the location, and where your final images will be displayed, will all play a part in how to determine what you should wear to your session.

Step one

Planning and styling consultation

This is the best part, your session! I will give direction and guidance throughout your session with simple yet flattering posing. My goal is to position you in the best light and create the opportunity for natural connections to happen between you and your family. This will ensure genuine smiles! We will capture a few traditional family poses looking at the camera, however most of the time you will NOT be looking at the camera and saying "cheese!". I will mostly be asking you to look at each other or your little ones to bring out the most genuine expressions. I will do all the hard work for you!

Indoor sessions will be scheduled between 10am to 2pm depending upon your little one's nap schedule. Outdoor sunset sessions will start 1 to 1.5 hours before sunset. This is weather dependent and subject to change.

Step two

The session

After your session you will come into the studio for a private image reveal experience! We will review your images together, narrow down your favorites, and begin the design process for the products you want to invest in. You will be able to see and feel the quality of the heirloom products that I offer.

Due to the custom nature and handcrafted archival materials used - albums, prints, wall art, and keepsake boxes can take an additional 6 or more weeks to arrive. Please keep this in mind when choosing your session date.

Step three

Image reveal and delivery

As mothers, we want to hold on to each moment, every milestone, each kiss goodnight. As we grow older alongside our children, the memories of those moments begin to fade and our photographs are all that we have left. With my help, let's turn your beautiful images into stunning art pieces that you can walk by and enjoy everyday on your walls. Custom gallery wall design included.
