Making a Change

Clients, friends, followers - I have come to the decision that I will not be continuing my photography business. I can't bear taking down my page just yet. I love to scroll through and remember the families I have met over the last 5 years. I do not expect to return to business in the future, but I do hope to get back to sharing personal projects in photography. And in the future, even if it is not through the lens, I hope I will see those of you I have had the pleasure of photographing!

Carrie P Photography is available for sessions year-round. Whether you want family portraits in your hometown, a newborn session within your home, or photographs of your little ones playing at a favorite park, the images will be captured beautifully. Carrie P Photography travels within the St. Louis metro area for sessions and can provide you with ideas for the perfect location or make the most of your home and yard. Email carrie@carriepphotography.net for availability. A limited number of weekend sessions are still available for fall 2015.

Family sessions are often a reason for celebrations: a milestone, a birthday, distant family visiting. This session was a different kind of celebration of a special family member.

Meet Gus. Wandering, sniffing, sweet hound dog.
Gus's mom contacted me, hoping she and her husband could find someone to capture their family while they were in town. She explained that Gus is their baby, he has cancer, and they wanted some photographs to help remember him when he is gone. During their session, Gus had a great time, sniffed lots of grass, got lots of cuddles.
I know it will be difficult to say goodbye to Gus when he has had his last walk in the park and belly rub. He will know he was loved.

Have you been thinking about having family portraits taken, but you don't know where to begin? Carrie P Photography provides suggestions on locations, what to wear, and how to prepare for your session to help you get the most beautiful results. There is no bad time to have family portraits taken, and the best time is now! Send Carrie P Photography an email to find out all the details of scheduling a session.

Sharing one final 2014 session! Fall family photo season is almost here, so it is time to start thinking about scheduling your session. Weekend time slots fill up first and limited weeknight sessions are available. It is not too early to choose your perfect date!

This is one of my favorite families to hang out with, so I was excited to meet up with them at Willoughby Farm for a family portrait session.
Be prepared for a bit of a walk if you choose this location. There are some gorgeous wild grasses and flowers in the nature / hiking area behind the farm, but there is a steep hill to climb on your way back to the farm. I'd say it's worth the walk!

Carrie P Photography loves newborns! Carrie P Photography comes to your home for newborn sessions where you and baby are most comfortable. When your baby needs a feeding, a changing, or cleaning during the session, the best place to be is in your own home. This also helps for sessions involving older siblings. Older siblings can get ready for photos, play, or spend time with Mom or Dad while baby is being photographed. Newborn sessions can be scheduled in advance so you can relax knowing that you aren't searching for an available photographer after your baby arrives. Call 314.504.1821 to schedule your newborn, family, or child portrait session in the St. Louis/metro-east area.

Darling baby J has her 6-month milestone session approaching, so this newborn session blog is long past due! Big sister knew just how to soothe her little sister by talking sweetly when baby fussed. They are best friends in the making!

Two amazing, beautiful daughters. What more could a family want?

Looking for someone to capture your children during your newborn's first days? Every newborn session by Carrie P Photography includes sibling and family portraits. There's no need for a special location as most of the first days of baby's life are spent at home, and I can come to you where you and baby are most comfortable. A nursery or bedroom makes the perfect backdrop for family portraits, and I bring along all that is needed to set up a mini-studio in a small space in your home. Schedule a session today, and don't wait to invest in your family's memories!

I just met up with the B family for a milestone session, and it reminded me I hadn't shared this adorable newborn session from last fall. He is so squishy and sweet in these crocheted hats.

This little cutie has an awesome big brother. Some ice cream bribery may have been involved in getting this shot!
I know this can be a time when Mom isn't feeling her greatest, but I always encourage parents to get in a few photos. All too soon, your little ones will grow into adults who will appreciate looking back at a time they were too young to remember.
Contact Carrie by email to find out more and reserve a session for your newborn: carrie@carriepphotography.net.

Newborn portrait sessions are available year-round. I will bring props, blankets, headbands, hats, wraps, and baskets to your home within baby's first two weeks to capture the fleeting moments. Don't miss your opportunity to record the newness of your baby - flaky skin, wrinkly forehead, tiny feet - that changes so quickly.

Hello, sweet little L! This baby girl slept so well for me and had the most gorgeous skin. Made for an easier than usual session AND editing - I'll take that any time!
Take a minute to explore my gallery. I LOVE mini sessions, and they are a great way to try me out for under $100. If you would like more information, or to book a session, call or text 314.504.1821.

It doesn't get much cuter than this. Twin 1 year old girls! It was a brisk December day, so I met this family at their home for the girls' session. The babies seemed to be taking turns being in a smiley mood, and both of them wanted to crawl right out of the frame.

Twins? Triplets? Families large and small should have beautiful photographs. Mini sessions are a great way to update family photos without investing a lot of money. Click on the Specials link for more information.
