Best Family Glencoe Park Photographer in St. Louis Missouri

1, 2 or 3 Hour Storytelling Family Session

These sessions are great for families that want to make some great pictures on location or at their home.  I love capturing families as they are, and have found that taking a documentary approach to these sessions once those more formal, lifestyle portraits are over helps to tell a story that you will cherish for years to come. 

I will begin your session with approximately 15 minutes of camera-aware family portraits (who wants to portraits for longer than this anyways!?!). Then, we spend the remainder of your session capturing you and your kiddos HAVING FUN as a family, and coverage is full documentary in nature. I encourage you to plan a family activity that you would love to have captured forever. The possibilities for your session are endless - a family bike ride, building a fort, baking, a trip to the local ice cream shop, sporting events, grocery store, play in the sprinklers, wash the car (or your dog!), build a snowman, play family games, etc.  The best part is these sorts of sessions can occur anywhere at any time of year and we capture so many special, ordinary little moments.

Day in the Life Sessions

From the moment the kids crawl out of bed with messy hair and sleepy eyes until they have convinced Mom and Dad to read The Hungry Caterpillar for the 18th time that week, I'm there documenting all the love and the little in between moments you never get to see.  During these sessions I become a part of your family.  The result is a visual diary for your children of the moments that paint the picture of their childhood.  We can work in 15 minutes of family portraits during this session as well if you desire.  The story told in this day will be a party of your family history and is an awesome opportunity to create a unique family heirloom that will be cherished for years to come.

Vacation Sessions

One of the best things about taking me on vacation is all the time we will spend together.  I'm a proactive member of the family.  My inner child will love all the lay with the kids and I'll enjoy sharing a glass of wine with you in the evening, while documenting every moment in between.  The advantage?  You know me.  You get to be fully present.  You get to put down your camera and experience the moments with your family.  You end up with professional photographs of your family, your story and the scenery.  You can even knock out your annual family portraits on vacation without having to hunt down a photographer in your destination location.  

Vacation Session  |  (starting at) $750/day (2 day minimum)

includes:

  • Sarah with your family on vacation
  • unlimited images
  • all uploading, editing and processing
  • online slideshow
  • and more...

Every situation is unique.  Please reach out to at the studio me via my contact page.  I would love to hear your story and provide you with a custom quote as well as a copy of my family session frequently asked questions guide!
