Every family has a story.
I'm here to help you share yours.
Join the #ENPFamily.
Your engagement session prepares you for your WEDDING by getting you comfortable in front of the camera. I promise to teach you my ways and let you know what to do with your hands.
I specialize in capturing LIFE - the beautiful, candid, genuine love you have for each other. My goal is the ensure you not only leave your engagement session with beautiful images, but that you had a great time and made some sweet memories together.
One day soon, you will get to hold your sweet baby in your hands and adore their precious sleepy face...Until you're up 12 times each night because that sweet little baby JUST. WON'T. SLEEP.
Cherish these moments of peace and quiet, and let me help you document them so you can look back on this beautiful time in your life and admire your gorgeous self and that precious baby bump!
I come to you for a photo session in your home 5-14 days after your sweet baby arrives. By this time you've fallen into a little bit of a routine, can read your newborn's cues, and older children are becoming adjusted to the newest family addition!
My photo session are structured to allow plenty of time for everyone to get comfortable in front of the camera and take a whole lot of photos that you can cherish for years to come!
Our family is the core of who we become. We are who we are because of those that loved us and helped shape us from the very beginning.
My photo sessions are structured with a little fun in the mix so the little ones don't get too tired of sitting - they have to let their energy out at some point! You're sure to make a few memories and leave the session with some photos to enjoy for the rest of forever!

Where do we take photos?
I have some gorgeous parks and settings that I LOVE to recommend for sessions! There are parks and locations throughout St. Louis County and St. Louis City that are just breathtaking for photos. For your session, I will recommend beautiful locations around you if you do not have a special location in mind.
I also offer lifestyle photography and love taking pictures of you in your element - home, office, porch - it's part of your story. I'm just here to help you document your beautiful story so you can share it with your grandchildren.
What do we wear?
The camera loves the look a long flowy dress and these dresses are SUPER flattering. Perhaps you have been working hard on your legs and want to show them off in a pair of killer heels (your legs are going to look AMAZING!). Or maybe you're like me and LOVE a good pair of skinny jeans and some booties. Your outfit choice is important, but the most important thing is that you are comfortable in your outfit. Your spouse and family should match their outfit to yours. After all, you're the one setting up the photos in the first place!
Color is also important here - the camera loves shades of soft pink and muted blues, mixed with sophisticated light neutrals like heather gray, creams, leather brown, navy, and white. I recommend staying away from ultra-bold or neon colors as well as tight plaid / gingham patterns.
Included with all my sessions is a style guide including photos I have taken as well as links to some of my favorite stores for wardrobe.
When will we get our photos?
Your sneak peeks will be posted to social media sites within 48 hours of your scheduled photo shoot. You will also receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 2 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season). You can download all the photos from the gallery. Included in all my packages is a print release for your gallery so you can share your photos with friends and family as well as order prints from your favorite printing company!
How many photos will we receive?
I always choose quality rather than quantity. I want you to love every image you see just as much as the last, and only include images in your gallery that I absolutely love.
For a 20 minute session, you can expect 12 images.
For a 40 minute session, you can expect 25 images.
