visual legacy

A simple backdrop with beautiful, soft light puts all the focus on your child's face and personality.

Portraits don't have to be stiff, awkward or forced.

Hello there!

My name is Jennifer and I'm a lifestyle newborn, family and portrait photographer serving the St. Louis, MO area. I want to give you a fun, stress-free photo experience that results in gorgeous images you'll cherish for years to come. Sound too good to be true? I don't think so!

Forget everything you know about the traditional portrait experience. No department stores, no cheesy backdrops, no confusing "package deals."

Childhood is full of emotion, wonder and excitement. It’s sometimes messy and chaotic, it’s sometimes quiet and observant, but it is always beautiful beyond words, and if you blink, you’ll miss it. The photographs of your children should capture all of these things. When you look at them, I want you to feel like you’re looking right into their little face and instantly remember all of their little quirks and mannerisms. 

No fake smiles and distracting backdrops. Just your child's authentic, beautiful self.

Getting beautiful portraits of your children doesn't have to be a chore.

The beauty of printed photos.

I'm a big believer that your photos deserve to be enjoyed off of your computer screen, displayed in your home and treasured every day. A picture is worth a thousand words, and it is my hope is that when your child sees his or her portrait hanging in your home, they will hear that they are important, beautiful, and loved. Because of this, every session includes a gorgeous 5x7” museum-quality print in an 8x10” white mat. You can put this in your own standard 8x10” frame.
