I absolutely love watching babies grow up!

Capture the smiles and the laughter because, as you know, time flies and before you know it they are all grown up.

During each milestone session, we will work together to capture your baby’s unique personality, just as they are. Because every baby is different, one of the things that makes my Milestone Sessions so unique is that I understand this and create customized sessions for you using beautiful backdrops and props.

When are milestone session captured?

 Your Milestone session can take place anywhere between 2 and 12 months of age.

 If you are only wanting a single session between the newborn stage and smashing that cake, I suggest around 6-8 months, when your baby can sit unassisted, but before they can crawl away. This allows me to capture the most poses and personality. 

As always family and siblings are welcome at no additional charge and hair and makeup for mom is included. In addition to outfits for mom, I have a large selection of outfits and accessories for baby as well!

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 my St. Louis Studio on location in St. Louis or we are available for travel.  Including your partner and other children are encouraged and included at no extra charge!

You can also choose our most unique and custom location, underwater

I recommend scheduling your maternity session for between 32 and 36 weeks, though I am happy to schedule outside of this window if you prefer.

Most families will continue their journey with a newborn session.

Babies grow up so fast!

You don't want to miss the chance to capture every wonderful moment early in their lives.

When you schedule your newborn session with Four Fireflies Photography we add your due date to the calendar. Then, when the baby arrives, we will schedule a firm date and time.

I only accept a set number of due dates for each month to ensure that there is time for every client to get the best possible experience.

I recommend that the session 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 our St. Louis Studio and can utilize any of my huge selection of props which we will select at your Planning Meeting!

Missed that newborn stage? Milestone sessions may be available on a very limited basis.

It really goes beyond the pretty baby pictures and the round bellies...

Capturing these moments between you and your baby is a great way to document the journey of motherhood. 

Motherhood is such a beautiful thing! There are so many important milestones and your kiddo is only part of the equation. Mom is a rock star and deserves all the special treatment she can get.

So I decided to make an effort to serve the hard working moms out there with a session just for them.

No matter the age of your children, Four Fireflies Photography is here to help. Whether you have one child or many, regardless of their ages, let me help you style a session to celebrate the gift of Motherhood and add more memories for you to treasure.

In their words...

Rebecca

Best experience ever!! Irene is a miracle worker. Her studio is filled with gorgeous gowns for you and tons of looks for your newborn. 

She made me feel so beautiful and told me how to pose for the perfect pictures. Irene is a baby whisperer and got the most perfect pictures of my precious boy. She knew exactly what I wanted and had everything set up when we arrived. Recommend 10/10 every time!!!!

Clarissa

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!

Andrea

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!
