Worrying about the logistic and other details with your newborn session can be stressful and overwhelming! Little Mother Photography does everything we can to address your biggest fears and concerns regarding this very special photo session.
Appearance of Baby:
Certain newborn characteristics of newborns may concern new parents, and they many not want them showcased in their images. For example, flaking skin, baby acne, jaundice or other skin colorization can all be corrected in post edit (if you want them to be!) Kandi is an experienced and talented Photoshop guro who has perfected her technique to create beautiful, natural-looking edits. Kandi never re-touches more than you’re comfortable with, but will gladly work with you to remove any areas of concerns that you don’t want in these portraits.
Appearance of Mama:
Newborn portraits are most magical and successful when done in the first week of life. Most mothers are not looking (what they consider to be) their “best” at a few days postpartum. If your newborn package includes photos with the mother (and father), please note that Little Mother Photography will do everything we can to have the new parents looking spectacular! We can advise you on what to (or not) wear, use flattering posing techniques and angles and lighting, and of course offer some TLC in the post editing process. We also have a wardrobe for expecting and new mothers that you’re welcome to browse and utilize if you’d like! Our collection of gowns, and accessories is ever-growing, and quite impressive! These images will be treasured in your family for generations, we know how important it is that you look and feel your best.
Cleanliness and Germs:
Little Mother Photography cleans the studio, props, accessories, wardrobe, etc. in between each and every client. We use bleach wipes, germ-x, soap and water. The entire Little Mother Photography team is uptodate on vaccines and immunizations; including the MMR whooping cough vaccine and seasonal flu shots. We will not hesitate to cancel a session if the photographer is not feeling well or if there is any chance of us spreading an illness.
Dressing the Baby:
In addition to a full wardrobe for mothers (as mentioned above), our newborn clothing and accessory options are seemingly endless. Seriously, Kandi may have a slight shopping addiction when it comes to things beautiful, delicate, and PERFECT for your baby to wear. There is absolutely no need for you to waste your money on clothing and props on something your child will only wear once. Like our mother’s wardrobe, our children’s options are free to use for our clients and included with our packages!
Getting the family up, dressed, and to a photography appointment (with a newborn nonetheless) can seem overwhelming and an impossible task. We understand this and are happy to come to you! We offer on-location photo shoots at your house, or another place of your choosing. It’s amazing what beautiful, natural, cozy images we can capture outside of the location in your home.

Last week was mother’s day, I’d like to take the time to honor a very special mother: Rhiannon Lindley. Rhiannon is one of the bravest, sweetest and strongest women I know; she’s amazing.
Rhiannon and her husband have four beautiful children ranging in ages from 5 to just a few months; the couple is also the primary caregiver for her brother.
Rhiannon recently completed nursing school not an easy task for anyone, but she was also pregnant at the time! The family has experienced a lot of challenges and struggles in the past few years, including her husband losing his job, they had a house fire, and, perhaps most devastating Rhiannon was diagnosed with Acute b Cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
I was honored to photograph this beautiful family in this special session.
I hope you’ll take the time to read more about Rhiannon Lindley’s story and consider giving to her GoFundMe page.
Oh, sweet Emily! How gorgeous are you in that stunning orchid pink? Emily’s mom requested pinks and florals, and Little Mother Photography was delighted to play with the beautiful color spectrum, perfect for spring!
Emily was sweet and sleepy for her session (which is perfect for newborn photos!), but her personality still managed to show through. What an amazing little girl.
Emily’s mom, Jessica visited us for her maternity session a few months ago. It’s easy to see where Emily gets her good looks from! This maternity session was one of my favorites of all time.
Little Mother Photography is starting an exciting new Studio Rep. Program! These reps Will be an integral part of our new marketing platform, to help the studio grow!
Studio Reps are ideally Little Mother Photography clients (or mothers of clients) who have experienced Little Mother Photography’s services first-hand and can speak authentically to our brand.
Reps should be outgoing and have a strong presence in the community (digitally on social media as well as physically). Each rep will be given small "swag" to share with folks they feel would enjoy and utilize Little Mother Photography. Each rep will also be asked to post, share, and tag on social media about Little Mother.
What do reps get in exchange? Each rep is given studio credit for each month they participate in the program. That’s right, free sessions!!!!! If this is a program you think would be a good fit for you and would like to learn more please set up at time to talk with us!

Little Mother Photography LOVES photographing newborns… of any species!
Recently, we’ve had some furry critters come into the studio for a shoot… and let me tell you- it was a BLAST! It’s always fun and exciting to mix things up, and we love capturing images of these cute animals.
Little Mother Photography can also incorporate animals into your family portraits, just check out how this family included these older (furrier) siblings in their newborn shoot:
Check out some more images from our recent animal photo shoots below!
We’ve been busy! The Little Mother Photography team was in Saint Louis earlier this week at Shutterfest. This annual photography conference helps us improve our skills, come up with fresh and new ideas, especially for our maternity clients!

Happy Easter! At Little Mother Photography I had the pleasure of shooting these newborns not too long ago. They're a little harrier than the newborns I'm used to working with, but they were just as sweet and cute!
These adorable fluff balls belong to Shanna Simms. I have worked with Shanna to capture beautiful images of her last human baby, so bunny babies seemed like a great idea! Photographing five bunnies in the studio was hilarious, and proved to be challenging! We got all five into swaddles, and they all fell asleep during the shoot; except for one little white girl, she was wide awake and wiggley!
Thank goodness no one pooped on set.
Little Mother Photography loves babies, furry or not, and as always, these babies were treated with the upmost love, care and respect.
Have a wonderful holiday, everybunny!
