The Newborn Experience

How tiny your baby's toes are, the little tufts of hair, how beautiful she is- these are things you will want to remember forever. I would love to be your St. Louis newborn photographer to help you capture the first family portrait and all the sweet newborn photos you will treasure forever. 

I want you to have a stress-free and relaxed newborn photo experience. My newborn clients all receive access to my client closet of carefully curated gowns for mom and props, wraps, bonnets, and headbands for baby, expert planning and styling, and a session reveal to help choose your images and heirlooms. All my clients take home archival artwork to display in their home!

Lean about your St. Louis newborn photographer's safety and training.



Everything begins with a quick conversation! I want to know all the details you are envisioning for your newborn photo session! We'll chat, see if we are a good fit, and schedule your planning consultation. 

1. Say Hello

Next, we'll meet for a planning consultation. This will happen in the comfort of your own home or you may come to my studio. We'll get to know each other and plan your dream session!
You will have the opportunity to look through my client closet of tiny baby wraps, headbands, and bonnets, flip through my curated collection of heirloom albums and folio boxes, and check out beautiful, archival wall art.

We will choose colors and location, plan outfits for everyone, and start deciding how and where you would like to display your photos. This is when you will reserve your session date.

2. Planning Consultation

We will have a relaxed newborn photo session! I have snacks and drinks available, as well as toys for siblings. We'll start with family and sibling photos, followed by photos focusing on your new baby. All newborn photo sessions take place at my studio in the St. Louis area.

3. Your session

Now for the fun part! You'll come back in for your viewing and ordering appointment. This is when you will see your photos for the very first time and choose your heirlooms! 

4. choose your heirlooms

So exciting! You will return in 4-6 weeks to view and pick up your artwork! Once everything has arrived and been hand inspected, I will contact you to set up your appointment. 

5. receive your artwork

The Investment Details

Maggie is such a talented photographer! Our session was so much fun, very relaxed,  and the images came out so much better than I could have imagined! A true artist!

Maternity Session


family Session


Right from the start Maggie made us feel extremely comfortable, was clear and direct and genuinely excited to take our photos! At the actual shoot she was relaxed but so professional and made us feel like naturals as she snapped our photos. The end product far exceeded our expectations and we absolutely LOVE the photos hanging on our walls. The quality of the photos are excellent!

My daughters and I had such an amazing time! Maggie was fabulous. So patient with my very energetic four year old and infant girls. She even had snacks and bubbles ready to keep the kids smiling! The finished photos captured my kids personalities and love for each other perfectly!! Maggie was so polite, accommodating and easy to work with. Highly recommend!
