4. Maternity

After many years doing professional photography in Springfield MO, I think a maternity session is the most important session parents can have. Your maternity session is a chance for you to relax, be pampered, and have fun before your little one arrives.  Gently guiding you into flattering poses and natural moments, you will be able to relax and remember how particular this time is.

5. Family Centered Newborn

Your lifestyle newborn session captures the beauty of your everyday. The main focus is to capture your family as a whole, but there will be a few photos of your baby solo sprinkled in. Sit back and cuddle your little one in the comfort of your own home as I take care of all the session planning and details.

6. Milestone Photos Of Your Family Doing Favorite Things During Each Stage

Your little one will change quickly! They will make noticeable changes not only in looks every month but in their favorite activities, growing milestones, and personality! Having an intimate milestone session of your family enjoying moments with your little one doing all of their favorite things! Some parents love monthly sessions, and others prefer quarterly sessions. BONUS, you can combine milestones with seasonal fun as your family celebrates fun traditions.

7. Mommy and me

As a mama, these are one of the most important sessions for me each year. Since my birthday and mothers day is always the same week, it’s my go-to gift that week to celebrate another year being a mama. A special session dedicated to showing all the sweet tiny moments you do as a mom every day.
