Once we receive your request for information, you will receive a questionnaire. This is essential to building the perfect session exclusively for you. 

After that questionnaire is complete, we will give you a call to talk through questions, expectations and preferences. Expect to spend 5-10 minutes on the phone going over everything you need to know about your session, 

The Call


More than just a consult,  the Planning Meeting is a collaboration to ensure every step is in sync and ready to create the vision you might not even knew you had.

Held in our St. Louis Studio, or virtually, this meeting includes discussion of your questionnaire, a look through options in the extravagant Client Closet, trying on gowns, review of the large selection of props, and exploring your heirloom options. 

By the end of this fun filled collaborative meeting, we will have determined the best path to make your dreams come true.

 The Planning Meeting


Sessions can take place at a variety of locations, depending on the session you choose and look you are going for. Most sessions begin with Hair and Makeup for Mom before we go through everything we planned for your custom photography session. No matter the location, we will walk you through every set and every pose being sure to guide you along the way so you are not left questioning how your final images will look. 

The Session


A few weeks after the session you will return  to the Studio to view your images and finalize the Heirlooms you would like to bring home.

Special software will be ready to show you exactly what your wall art will look like in your home and you'll be able to touch and feel all the options to help you select the perfect finishes.
