Newborn & Baby Photographer in St. Louis and Nashville

I absolutely love photographing newborns and babies. It fills my heart with joy, and I love that these photographs will be cherished for years to come. I'm an on-location photographer, so I photograph newborns at home, or at an outside location. At home sessions are my favorites because it helps new parents feel more relaxed to be home. I love capturing sweet newborn portraits, as well as relaxed family photos with parents, siblings, your furbabies, and the entire family.


Why Newborn Photography Matters


I will pose and capture portraits of your newborn baby in sweet poses, and I will take lifestyle photos of you (and other family members) cuddling and spending time with the baby. If you have special requests, I’m happy to incorporate them into the session. 


Perfect for older babies and families with other children. This can be an In-Home session, or on location outside. This is baby in his or her natural environment. There will be less posing and more natural and candid snapshots baby with the family. 


The first year of your baby’s life goes fast. One minute, they’re a newborn and the next your baby is crawling and walking. Baby’s First Year Package is a unique package of four sessions at every milestone – 3 months,, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months. This package also includes a 10×10 Signature Classic Album to showcase your favorite photographs from your baby’s first year.

What's a lifestyle baby session?

During your at-home lifestyle baby session, my goal is to capture the love and connection that you (and your family members) have for your baby. I’ll capture each member of your family in an intimate, special moment with the new baby, as well as the entire family together. I’ll also make sure to capture photos of the baby alone. Younger babies (up to 2 weeks) tend to be sleepy and are easier to pose, change outfits, and etc. without becoming too fussy. Older babies tend to be awake, so my goal during these moments is to capture your baby cooing, smiling, and giggling.

What should we wear?

I recommend that parents wear nice clothing that is comfortable and flattering to them. (If you like how you look in it, wear it!). Dress up – you don’t want to regret wearing an outfit too casual. As a rule of thumb, make sure you’ll be happy with that outfit when your photo is printed or hanging on the wall for many years to come. Neutral, light colors and pastels look best, as they aren’t distracting from the new baby. They also are prettier in images. However, If you are a color person, wear your favorite colors! You can add pops of color by layering or wearing jewelry. For your baby, dress him/her in a muslin swaddle or a favorite outfit of yours. If there’s a hat or headband you love, put it on.

When should we book?

Ideally, newborn sessions should be scheduled 5 to 10 days after your due date. Newborns under 2 weeks are ideal because they spend most of their hours sleeping and tolerate outfit changes and different poses better. After four weeks, these older babies tend to be more alert and awake (which can also be cute!) Newborn sessions should be booked in advance – during your third trimester. This will secure my availability in advance. Because babies can come earlier or later than expected, just let me know as soon as your baby is born and we can set up a specific date and time. I book newborn and baby sessions during the weekdays and limited Sundays (as I am shooting weddings on Saturdays).

What if I need to reschedule?

Things happen. You get sick. It rains and we’re scheduled to shoot outside. No worries – I am absolutely flexible, and I understand that things don’t always go the way we planned. If it rains on an outdoor shoot, we’ll watch the weather and reschedule it for another day later that week or the following week. If you’re sick or the baby is sick, just let me know and we’ll select another day when everyone is feeling better. If your baby is born early and needs to be in the NICU for a little bit, don’t worry. We’ll take photos when he or she is well and finally at home with you. Whatever happens, we can always reschedule.

Do you require a deposit?

Yes, for new clients, I require a $100 non-refundable deposit to book/secure your session. (If you are a returning client, no deposit is necessary.) The remaining balance is due at the time of your session. If you wish to make small payments over time, I offer payment plans.

When do I receive my photos?

You will receive the edited photos 1 to 2 weeks after your session delivered through an online photo gallery. You can view, download high resolution photos, order print products, and share your photos to friends and family directly through the gallery.


Perfect for families with older children, Zoe Life Photography also offers Outdoor (at a public location, such as a park) or Lifestyle Family Sessions in your home. All Family Sessions include hand editing of all delivered photos, the high resolution files delivered through an online gallery that allows you to download the photos, order professional prints, and share with friends and family. You also receive a print release, so you can print your photos at the lab of your choice. Available as Mini Sessions (15 or 30 minutes) and Full Sessions (60 minutes). Mini Sessions start at $150, and Full Sessions are $250 for one-hour.
