St. Louis Family Photographer

Those two little messy blonde boys with the paint belong to me.

While I'm excited for them to grow and learn, I know I'm going to miss the silly toddler faces and giggles. Every single moment with them is valuable.

That is what I want for your session to be; valuable moments spent in this unique chapter of life where you can be completely present.

You won't stress over outfits, your hair and makeup, choosing which photos to print, how photos will look on your wall, or shopping for frames.

Leave the work to me and soak in these fleeting moments.

We will design custom artwork for your home and take away the stress of choosing, printing, and framing images.

Relax while my incredible hair and makeup artist glams you up for your session. Then be enjoy a fun-filled and stress-free session.

What family Photography in St Louis could look like...

I'M ST LOUIS FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER BECKY! A SPUNKY, ADVENTUROUS, GO-WITH-THE-FLOW KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER HERE TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER!

Meet Becky

Family Photographer in St Louis, MO

Hey! I'm Becky and I'm so happy you are here!

As a working mother of two very rambunctious boys, I know how every second of the day matters. The time consuming aspects of family photos can begin to feel very daunting. Especially when you start planning your family's outfits and how you'll do your hair and when will you have time to go through photos to decide which to print. 

I TOTALLY GET IT!!!

That's I why do this! With a passion for photography and a history as a K-12 science teacher, a track & field coach, and as a current mom of two young, children, I do family photography differently.

You will get to relax, your kiddos will be convinced the session is a play time, and you'll have beautiful images of special moments to hang on your wall in custom frames.

The Families I work with...

Let your children's wildest dreams come true. Great for a children's room, nursery, or playroom. These pieces allow your imagination to come to life. They start with a planning meeting and wardrobe. Then on to a quick session, so the creative piece can be created with your child as main focal point.

Your kids will love seeing themselves in these images.

Something a little extra...
