Ali Brassel Photography

Hi there, I’m Ali! I’ve been documenting special moments, big and small, for families and couples for over 11 years here in St. Louis! My imagery evokes joy and warmth that feels authentic to you and your beautiful life. I’m passionate about creating a fun and stress-free experience for my clients. From offering guidance with details, big and small, leading up to your session to making your photo shoot a memorable and enjoyable time, I’m here every step. If you have a vision in mind, I want to help bring it to life! It’s truly an honor and a privilege to tell my clients’ precious stories with my camera. I hope to help tell yours!

Samantha McRoy Photography

I am so excited to meet you! I’m Samantha, your new best friend & third wheel! When scheduling photos it can feel as though it’s just a train wreck and you may even leave wondering if there were any good photos taken.  That is where I come in!! 

Samantha McRoy Photography specializes in capturing the beautiful chaos of everyday life for families and couples. Your photos shouldn’t feel stiff with forced smiles; it’s about those genuine moments that make your heart swell.  Whether it’s a cozy cuddle on the couch, or a playful stroll through the park, I am here to commit those moments to memories.  Your photos will feel authentic and casual that tell your unique story. Let’s create some magic together!  

Georgia Lynn Photography

Georgia Lynn Photography specializes in lifestyle and portrait sessions for newborns, motherhood, and families. My approach to photography is rooted in the belief that among the most significant experiences and relationships in life are the simple moments of authentic connection. That the best photos remind us of not just how a moment looked, but bring you right back to where you were and how it felt. That is my promise: to make you feel something when you look at your images.

I see things others may not and focus on energy and emotion. I embrace the candid moments as I document your growing family, the details of your newborn, silly games with the toddlers, and all the chaos in between. I also have a passion for children’s portraits, as there is nothing more timeless than a one-of-a-kind multi-generational heirloom.

Through the fleeting moments and milestones, you deserve imagery that will live with you for a lifetime. As parents we know it goes by so fast. Whatever season of life you are in, I would be honored to document and preserve these years for you. Georgia is a U. City mama to two little girls + fur babies. 

Alexandria Mooney Photography

Alexandria Mooney Photography is an international award-winning photographer who specializes in documenting birth stories, brand new babes, and families. She’s inspired by film and rusticness and rainbows and loves capturing that first breath … and every one to come.
 
Alex also donates her time to Captures for Clark, a sub-part of her business where she honors her son, who was stillborn in 2018, by providing complimentary birth stories and bereavement photography services to families who are facing similar prognoses that she did with her sweet boy. Photos forever capture those moments in time we do not want to forget – the wonderful, the amazing, and sometimes the difficult – and Alex strives to document those moments each and every day for the families who come in front of her lens.

J Elizabeth Photography

Life is full of excitement, joy, love, and laughter which can feel hard to find when there is so much heaviness and othering going on around us. Photos give us a tangible way to reconnect with who we once were and hold on to memories of those we love. The most important thing you can do to prepare for your session is to show up with curiosity and a sense of adventure for whatever the day brings and we will discover the magic together.

My mission from the beginning of my career in 2009 has always been to include the full family unit however that may look. From backyard chickens and fluffy pups, to Grandparents, bonus parents and imaginary friends, we include everyone who is helping us navigate this wild and wonderful experience of being human. Whether it’s a cozy day at home or an exploration of a new park, I believe your family should be remembered as they are, messy hair, dirty shoes and all.

STL families and friends, my name is one amongst many incredible photographers, if you feel like we are a good match and are drawn to my work, I hope to connect with you.
