The Mini Maternity is best scheduled between 32 and 36 weeks when you are showing enough of a full belly, but not quite ready to deliver!  It's a great way to treasure and document this special time before baby arrives.

Wondering when to schedule your newborn's session? We know babies come on their own time, so we love to book newborn sessions while you're still pregnant, setting a tentative date to ensure a spot on our calendar.  

Because newborn sessions are lengthy, they are scheduled Tuesday thru Thursday during the week. These sessions are best when baby is within 14 days old and curly, so we can get those cute poses you see on our blog!  

Newborn sessions are held in our cozy studio with access to a large prop assortment.  Once a date is chosen and confirmed, you will receive booking information to prepare for baby's session - which is where the fun begins!  The last thing we want is for you to stress over the session. Your baby will cry and get hungry, and that is perfectly fine! We are mothers too, so don't worry about a thing!

Want to do the session in your home?  Have an older newborn?  That's ok - email us and we can customize the perfect session for your little one!

Your baby's first birthday is exciting and we want to help you remember this time with baby's 1-year photo session, that will conclude with a cake smash!  You will tell us your child's birthday theme and we will discuss possible "looks" for your session.  We also email you a guide to help you plan the session.
The cake portion tends to be easier if your child isn't walking yet because it keeps them from running away!  If they are walking, no worries! It just may take a little extra time to keep them involved in the smash part!
We provide the themed cake for all smash sessions.  These  are available Tuesday through Thursday, with an occasional Friday (please check the booking calendar for availability) for the weekday option.  We have limited availability for weekend appointments with family pictures but it includes an additional cost and must be booked with confirmation 4 weeks before your desired date.

If you would like to add family photos during the week, we can combine sessions as well (see the pricing tab for the details).  For all session types, we recommend these sessions 4 weeks before baby's first birthday, if you are looking to get images back to you in time for the birthday celebration!

We love customizing your baby's first birthday session!

We offer a custom experience for our clients.  We try to base locations and "looks" on the needs and goals of your photo session.  Regular photo sessions are around an hour long, with lots of poses and variety!  Clients will receive a planning guide upon booking their session.  We try to make it easy and to make the session as stress-free as possible!

Our sessions include posed images, as well as some candid shots, in which we will direct you throughout the session!

For head shots,  we offer an in-studio option with backdrop of your choice, for a more standard look.  We also offer outdoor head shot sessions, or can take your photo at your office or other location, for a more editorial look!

Photogenics will grant you permission to print your photos, and will retain the copyrights.  We do recommend specific print labs for the best quality at the same price as local discount stores.

Our editing process includes color correction and simple touch-ups.  More defined editing, such as digital slimming, teeth whitening, etc., is billed at an hourly rate.  Please email for more information!

Yes!  Our new studio can accommodate larger families and offer variety as well.

We totally understand!  We live in Missouri, after all, so we can be flexible with this, or find a covered location!
