Congratulations on your soon-to-arrive bundle of joy! This is such an exciting time in your life and there is no better way to capture these memories than with custom portraits.

Documenting your pregnancy is a great way to share these moments with your loved ones and your future child.

Your session can take place in our St. Louis Studio or on location both in the St. Louis area or a custom destination.  Images including your partner and other children are encouraged and included at no extra charge! 

Hair and makeup, as well as access to our extensive client closet, is included.

I recommend scheduling your maternity session for between 32 and 37 weeks, though I am happy to schedule outside of this window if needed.

St. Louis
Newborn Photography

They do not stay little for long! Capture those first few weeks in an artful way with a custom newborn session.

When you schedule your newborn session with Four Fireflies Photography we add your due date to the calendar. Then, when baby arrives, we will schedule a firm date and time. We only accept a limited number of due dates for each month to ensure that there is time for every client to get the best possible experience.

It is recommended that newborn sessions takes place between 5 and 15 days after birth, but any baby younger than 2 months is considered a newborn and is welcome.

Newborn sessions will take place in my St. Louis Studio and will utilize our huge selection of props as well as access to our extensive client closet for mom and any siblings. Hair and makeup for mom is also included. 

St. Louis
Family Photography

Going beyond the pretty baby pictures and the round bellies.  Capturing your growing family in an artful way is a great way to document the journey.

Motherhood is such a beautiful thing! There are so many important milestones and Baby is only part of the equation. Mom is a rock star and deserves all the special treatment she can get. And while our family sessions are sure to capture any co parents as well, we are here to help you remember that special bond between mother and child. 

No matter the age of your children, Four Fireflies Photography is here to create the perfect session for you. Hair and makeup, as well as access to our extensive client closet is included with your session.

In their words...


We’ve been with Irene and Four Fireflies since 2018. We absolutely love the beautiful memories that we’ve captured during our photoshoots of pregnancy, birth and milestones. One of my favorite shoots however was more of a “just because” to celebrate a 2.5 year breastfeeding journey, shifting to a “post Covid” state of living, our baby girl turning into a “big girl” and documenting the longest I had grown my hair before a super short cut in preparations for new baby! We received the most wonderful feedback from family and friends regarding this photoshoot and now our nearly four year old daughter refers to this day and these captured moments as our wedding. For sure we will have our 3rd “wedding” when our newest addition is older!


We used Irene at Four Fireflies Photography for a maternity and newborn photoshoot. She was so wonderful and patient with our sweet little baby. He was very fussy, we were stressed as new parents, yet she made us feel comfortable and even let us come back and try another day when our baby wasn’t as crabby 😂

I highly recommend her services, the studio was clean and full of fun newborn props. She has a great touch with the little ones. We will be using here for future family photos!


Irene was amazing!!! She took every idea we had and made them even better. I’ve so far had my maternity and newborn photos with her and already have two more sessions booked!

 She’s so attentive and really takes her time to find the perfect shot. A true baby whisperer! I highly recommend Four Fireflies Photography!
