the Family photographer in St. Louis, Missouri.

I am a storyteller.

Your story starts here.


I am Vanessa, a St. Louis Photographer. I specialize in Family Photography as well as Children's Photography and Maternity Photography. I take a more lifestyle photography approach to the way I shoot versus what most consider portrait photography. I focus on the connection you share with your favorite people and how you feel when you are around them. I tell YOUR story.


My candid approach shows others how beautiful they are so they can feel confident to simply be themselves. I love to think of photographs as our very own personal time machine. And as such, it makes them timeless. Your story and the emotion you share with your loved ones is an investment in your memories and love for one another.


I started my photography journey because of my passion to capture the growth of my own children. So as a mom, I understand that time flies in the blink of an eye and all I want to do is hold time still so I can enjoy each chapter in my child's life.


I also understand how hard it is to capture children ( have a great BLOG post on how to prepare kids!) and get Dad to enjoy the photos as well. My approach will have you forgetting you are getting your picture taken, and instead feel like a fun, family outing.
