When To Take Maternity Photos | St. Louis Maternity Photographer


As a family photographer, it comes with the territory that I always capture moments of my family. And of course, I am very lucky that my children allow me to do this, most of the time.

I’m sure your kids are like mine, they light up the moment someone gives them a toy especially if it’s something they’ve been asking for. But after that whole new shiny effect wears off, they often toss that toy aside and likely won’t ever play with it again. Or at least, that’s how it is for my children.
