Hello and welcome!

My name is Amy and I’m the lead photographer of Amy Elizabeth Photography. I’m so excited that you found me and because I believe that getting to know my clients is the #1 way to ensure an awesome experience, I’d love to tell you a little about me and my family!

St. Louis Family Photographer

  •   My husband and I are high school sweethearts from a tiny town in Western Iowa.
  •   We have a 7 children, after doctors told me that I may never be able to have kids!
  •   We moved to St. Louis for my husband’s post doctoral work and have been here 18 years.
  •   I started the photography business in 2016.
  •   While I began with photographing families, my business has expanded to include
    weddings, seniors, newborns, and milestone sessions. I love everything about authentic
    love and connection–which is why I offer these sessions!
  •   When not behind the camera, snuggled up with a kiddo and a favorite blanket made by
    my grandma is where you will likely find me.
  •   Coffee? Yes, of course!
  •   I love creating artistic and emotive images, but more importantly, I love photographing
    the souls in front of my camera. You have a uniquely beautiful story, and I am honored to
    to help you capture it.

 

Now that you know a little about me, lets get to the information and details…

The Session Experience

MY PHILOSOPHY | Connection

Whether it is connection with each other or connection with my camera, I am ALL about authentic and emotive connection.  Add in a beautiful setting and I have no doubt we can tell a beautiful story.  I get involved right away with the planning details as soon as your session date is booked because I want to create as stress-free of an experience as possible.  Wardrobe?  I help with that.  Location?  I have great options!  What I want from you is to bring your people and relax and enjoy the experience.  In fact, if you have kids coming with you, I want them to leave feeling like they had a great time, not that they were at a photo session!  Will I get those posed images where everyone is looking at the camera?  Yes, of course.  But that won’t be the majority of the session. Because the most beautiful images of all will be the ones where you aren’t looking at me, but that you are interacting with each other. Sounds like something you are interested in? If so, keep reading..

THE PROCESS

If after looking through my information you decide you’d like to book a session, let me know and I will email you a contract and an invoice with the session retainer fee to book your date. As soon as I have those things back from you, I send over my wardrobe styling information and we discuss what location might work best.  Wardrobe does play a big role in how your session looks and feels, and I love to get in the details of the planning from the very beginning.  So don’t hesitate to ask questions and we will work together to style your session in a way you love and creates beautiful results.

On the actual day of the session, I will send you some last minute information and confirm our session start time. Your job is to show up and have a great time!

After the session, my work has only begun, as I then start the process artistically editing your final gallery images. This process takes me about three weeks. Once I am finished editing, we will set up a time to get together and go over all your beautiful portraits. I have a fabulous artwork software that I can’t wait to show you, it let’s me put examples of your portraits in different sizes on your very own walls so you can see what might look best in your home before you even make a purchase decision!  As far as the digital images, I upload those to an online gallery once this appointment is finished and you can download them from there.

ALBUMS

So many clients leave their sessions with several portraits they love…more images than they can possibly put on their walls.  And because each session often tells a story, an album is a beautiful way to display a large number of your family portraits.  Don’t leave those digital images on a flash drive in a desk drawer.  Give yourself and the generations that follow you the gift of a stunning legacy to look through again and again.

8X8 20 PAGE ALBUM $1250/$950

VIDEO

I can’t think of a more beautiful way to capture your family in action than a family film. Whether you add video to your family session or choose video a la carte, you will cherish these memories for years to come. When you add video onto your session, I will take both still images AND video of your family.  When you choose a la carte family video, I will join your family for 2-3 hours and document your everyday moments. With both the add on option and the a la carte, I create a 3-4 minute long video with beautiful licensed music for you to enjoy. You will receive
a Vimeo link to download the video, as well as share with family and friends.

$650 a la carte

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

TRAVEL

I am more than willing to travel for sessions! I actually love it when I’m asked ask to photograph in a location that means something
special to the family. Travel fees do apply to anything outside of a 60-mile radius of 63049. Ask me for more details!

DIGITAL FILES

I love delivering our client’s final galleries via an online gallery so you will have the ability to print, share and download your images.  Most full session final galleries contain 50 images or more and come with a print release.

ARTWORK

Is there really much difference between printing yourself at a consumer lab vs. printing professionally through a photographer and their professional lab?  Yes, actually there is.  I realize there can be quite a price difference to pair with the difference in quality of prints, so I’d love to visit with you more on when it’s wise to invest in professionally finished products and when printing at your regular box store or online lab is the way to go.  When you order artwork through me, I guarantee the color and quality of the final product and you can expect most professionally products to be in your hands about two to three weeks after ordering.

RESCHEDULING

If an unavoidable circumstance arises, I am willing to reschedule your session date if I’m given enough notice. Also, if weather presents dangerous circumstances, we will reschedule.

BEHAVIOR

As a mom of 7, I certainly know that kids’ behavior can change the mood of everything! Please don’t stress about this. In fact, the more you stress out, the more kids will pick up on that stress and then mirror it in their own way. It is better to keep things as light-hearted as possible, then let me handle the rest. Of course, a little bribery of ice cream or a special treat after the session can go a long way! If behavior issues are a big concern for you, let’s talk it through before the day of the session.

STYLE

If you haven’t had a chance to see much of my style, I’d love for you to go check out my website! I have a gallery on my website for each of the different types of sessions I offer. That way you can see many examples of my work to determine if my style is a good for what you would like for your session. Click HERE to go to the homepage of my website.
