It’s been a busy week! Some of the highlights include some fresh milk bath images. Milk baths create beautiful, relaxing images; perfect for maternity or nursing mothers.
Little Mother photography is proud to offer the only milk bath studio in the area. Natasha visited us from Vichy, Missouri. She looked absolutely stunning in the red lace gown and long blonde locks.
We take care of supplying wardrobe and have numerous beautiful gowns in different colors, styles, and sizes to choose from. We also provide fresh, seasonal flowers. Interested in scheduling your milk bath session with Little Mother Photography? Keep in mind that the best time for maternity images are between 30-35 weeks.
Contact us to schedule your milk bath session today firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we approach 2018, Little Mother Photography would love to take this opportunity to reflect on the past year. We are so grateful to our clients, new and returning, for helping this be the most successful year we’ve ever had. 2017 was an exciting year of growth and many accomplishments, most notable of which may very well been selected as the 2017 Best Photographer in Phelps County by the Rolla Daily News! This award couldn’t have been possible without the support (and votes) of our wonderful clients. Thank you to everyone who voted for us! Little Mother Photography has grown, moved into a new (larger) studio, photographed more sessions than ever, and even embarked on a new adventure: web design!
A Larger Studio (& Milk Bath)
In July we moved from our original studio to a larger one at 1007 Hauck Drive. We celebrated the move and growth with a wonderful ribbon cutting ceremony with the Rolla Chamber of Commerce.
In addition to moving studio location we added a milk bath studio, the only one in the area. Check out these beautiful milk bath images we captured in 2017.
More Sessions Than Ever
2017 was the busiest year for Little Mother Photography to date. Between births, newborns, families, events, milestones, and special sessions we’ve had our work cut out! In the month of October alone we were on call for 3 births in the greater Phelps, Dent and Polaski counties.
Below are some of our favorite baby images from 2017.

In 2017 Little Mother Photography rolled out it's unique approach to webdesign and photography services for local businesses. Our first (of many) websites, Sybill's Restaurant and Gift Shop is now live. We look forward to continuing to maintain Sybill's site, as well as continue to build new ones.
Continued Personal & Professional Growth
The Little Mother Photography team prides itself in staying on the cutting edge. The technology we own, the education and training that we we attend, or the trends that we watch closely, we want to make sure that our clients are getting the best service and product possible. We are so thankful to everyone who helped making 2017 so successful, special, and memorable. We look forward to a wonderful 2018!
Little Mother Photography is more than just babies! We love photographing children, families, and adults too! Please keep us in mind for all of your photography needs.
We’re having a special this December: glitter and snow sessions! These playful sessions are done indoors, and are a wonderful idea for older children. Schedule soon and we can get your images back to you in time for the holidays!
Check out some of these fun images below.
Little Mother Photography is proud to announce we have been awarded “Best Photographer in Phelps County” by the Rolla Daily News! This is a huge honor, and we are so grateful to everyone who voted.
We hope to continue to uphold our reputation of being the best photographer in Rolla, and Phelps County. Thank you for your votes, your support, and of course for trusting us to capture those timeless moments.
There are countless benefits to hanging your family portraits on your walls. Not only do they look amazing, add beautiful decor to your home, act as a great conversational piece, but they can benefit your family psychologically as well. When asked about the possible benefits of displaying family portraits Dr. Nicholas Bergeron (PhD in developmental psychology) stated "Displaying family photographs can lead to increased children's self- awareness and the social support shown within the photograph can enhance children's self-esteem."
Little Mother Photography offers full service printing through the nation’s best professional photo labs. We have access to professional photo labs, ones that individual consumers don’t. These high quality photo labs make all the difference when preserving your timeless moments. If you’re choosing to go with a high quality photographer to capture your moments why would you choose anything but the best to print and display them?
Countless other bloggers have posted comparisons showing the difference in quality from a professional photo lab vs Walmart, Walgreens, Shutterfly, Snapfish, etc.. So rather than re-invent the wheel we have compiled information and pictures from some of our favorite blog posts for you to compare below. We though this original approach would show the full spectrum of what you could get if you use one of these consumer photo labs. Quality and product varies greatly by time, location and other factors. By showing a collection of different images printed at different consumer labs (and also compared to the original image or what the photographer got at a professional lab) you, a Little Mother Photography customer, would have the most knowledge to make an informed decision regarding how to preserve your memories forever.
It should go without saying that the images that follow are NOT Little Mother Photography's. Credit and links is given for the images below.
This first round of photos is from Beck Impressions Photography's blog. Take note on the dark, (terrible?) coloring in the Walmart prints. The Walgreens prints look way too saturated, and Costco and Target don't look much better!
This second round of photos is from Amanda Jackson Photography's blog. Walgreens looks like the worst of this bunch, but the other 3 aren't far behind! Too dark, saturated, and the coloring is all sorts of awful.
The third group of images are from P&W Photography's blog. At first glance the prints don't look as bad as some of the images we've already seen. However, a closer inspection will show poor color matching, high saturation, and overexposure in many of them.
And this fourth and final group of images is from DeWitz Photography 's blog. In both of these examples Walmart photos came out underexposed and over saturated; the Walgreen prints came out way overexposed.
The takeaway: when printing nothing compares to the quality of a professionally printed photo. Little Mother Photography will help you to get the best prints with a variety of unique products (prints, canvases, mounted photos, albums and more). We offer a quality guarantee, and do all of the hard work for you. We assist in choosing sizes and medium, and we're available to help you hang it.
Wall art is timeless, beautiful, and a great way to decorate your home. When preserving your family's memories for generations to come you should consider the best.

As the leaves start to turn and autumn rolls in, it is a great opportunity for the Little Mother Photography team to reflect on how much we've grown and how truly blessed we are.
We recently celebrated moving to our 1007 Hauck Drive location with a ribbon cutting ceremony from the Rolla Chamber of Commerce. This larger studio space has been a much needed addition as we continue to serve more clients than ever.
Out of the studio we are doing more event photos than ever. We are busy traveling all around Missouri to capture birthday parties and other celebrations.
And, most excitingly, we are venturing into web design! Stay tuned for more exciting announcements as our first clients' work starts to go live.
To all of our clients, loyal and new, we are so grateful for you allowing our studio to continue to grow and thrive. THANK YOU.
Smash cakes have become a great way to celebrate a child’s first birthday. It’s a creative way to have some messy fun! Little Mother Photography does some of the most unique and fun smash cake sessions! We LOVE when parents have interesting ideas for their child’s smash cakes.
Your Smash and Splash package with Little Mother Photography includes a personalized cake (baked just for you by a local Rolla baker), 12 high resolution digital files (of your choosing), and a fun bath to finish up the set.
Check out some of our favorite smash cakes below!
Nothing quite like a bonfire on a crisp autumn evening! This special cake was made just for this little guy, complete with marshmallows to “roast” at the end of long pretzels.
Fresh strawberries? Yes please! This adorable strawberry shortcake smash was equal parts cute and delicious. And did you notice her sweet romper?
Sometimes simple is best. These cakes were elegant and still made for amazingly fun photo shoots!
Sometimes a smash cake doesn’t have to be a cake… These smash DONUTS were so much fun!
What a better way to celebrate a birthday than with a mermaid inspired cake? This little girl was loving her tasty magical creation.
This little boy LOVES whales, so what better way to celebrate his first birthday than with a super cute whale smash cake?
