Pets and their People
Capturing the unique bond between a pet and his person(s) and featuring the unconditional love they share.
We love and photograph all pets, all breeds and all sizes.
They are unique, they are funny, they are adorable and sometimes they are naughty.
But they are also our reason to smile every day. Celebrate your pet with a beautiful and artistic portrait.
Whether you are an influencer, realtor, life coach, florist, or even a college student, you need a good personal branding portrait that tells a little more about your personality and allows you to share with your audience an idea of who you are before they even meet you.
They say we have only three seconds to make a First Impression. What will your’s be?
We know that family portraits can be stressful for parents. We’ve got you. We’ve been photographing families for over ten years and our sole focus is to create art that becomes part of your home and your legacy. All you have to do is show up and have fun.
Our seniors begin their day being pampered by our in-studio hair and makeup artist who will bring to life the look they chose for their senior session. We’ll start in the studio for some modern and fun indoor images, then we head out to the St. Louis urban and creative background where they have a true model experience.
One day your children and your grandchildren will look for photographs of you. What will they find?
We are dedicated to empowering women to embrace self-love and their beauty. Our goal is to not only provide you with stunning images but to build a confidence in you that leaves you strutting.
A creative testimony to all your amazing efforts to celebrate a healthy lifestyle and love your body without shame. A game of light and shadows to accentuate every line and create a work of art you will be proud to display on your walls.
It is not about vanity. It is about self-reward and self-love.
Join us for a deep and intimate B&W portrait session and let the art of lightning create the mood and essence of your portraits.
B&W portraits give no space to distractions and enable us to showcase raw emotions and focus on telling your story.
Are you thinking of doing an intimate session as a gift for someone special, to mark a milestone, or just for yourself?
No matter the reason, it’s the perfect way to celebrate how beautiful you are right now! We’ve been helping women step out of their everyday life, be pampered and discover a beauty in themselves they haven’t seen in ages if ever at all.
The Portrait Session Timeline
First, let’s talk. We offer complimentary 15 min consultations and explain in detail our session and services. Once we choose a date, we embark on a journey of building this fabulous experience tailored to you. We’ll assist you in your wardrobe selections and we have a few studio wardrobe choices available for you as well (from xs to xl sizes). Make this day into a special occasion celebrating the love you and your family share. P.S. Pets are always welcome.
On the day of the session, you and your family, two and four-legged just have to show up and we’ll take it from there. Our make-up and hair artist will take care of pampering you while you sip on your glass of bubbly and enjoy some strawberries. Are you thinking about how your little ones, two and four-legged will do? Don’t worry if everything isn’t perfect, that’s why we are here.
About 7-10 days after the session, we’ll have your premiere, in person or over zoom. This is where you’ll be able to see the best of the best and choose your favorite images as well as anything you’ll want to display on your walls and in your home. We’ll guide you through all the options and will ensure you are happy with your choice.
In about two-three weeks we’ll call and notify you that your art is ready. We are happy to deliver them or you may pick them up from our studio. Framed Prints might require up to three weeks for delivery.
