I’d like to wish a very happy new year to everyone! As a St. Louis Newborn Photographer, what better way to celebrate the new year, than celebrating a precious new babe. Miss Madison was welcomed into the world this past summer, and thanks to all my wonderful clients I’ve been a bit busy to keep up with the blog. This post may be a teensy bit late, but the sweetness here is definitely worth it!

It was such an honor getting to meet Madison’s parents when I shot their maternity session last spring. I’m not sure if I could have met a more amazing couple, and I may have done a happy dance with all the images we were able to capture. We traipsed through woods and climbed in fields, you name it – they let me do it.

Shooting their precious baby girl was just as much fun, and she couldn’t have been any better for her first photo shoot.  My style of newborn photography tends to be more natural, with organic movements and simple posing. I like to use natural looking props and accessories that enhance the images rather than distract from them. Here are just a few of my favorites from her session, and let’s say a little hello to Miss Madison.

Are you curious where I like to shop for my newborn props and accessories? You can find a detailed list of some of my favorite newborn vendors at the bottom of this post.

If you are looking for a St. Louis Newborn Photographer, I’d love to chat with you to discuss your needs! Amber Potter Photography is now booking newborns Feb – July 2017. Get in touch soon, as these type of sessions are limited!

As a St. Louis newborn photographer, I love getting to meet new families so much. When my returning clients have a new little one, it’s even better. This is baby Rylan…isn’t she just beautiful? Rylan’s mama got in touch with me when she was looking for a newborn photographer for their new little one. I’m so happy that she did! This family was so much fun to work with, and big sister was just as adorable as little sister. I can tell she’s going to love having a new baby sister, and can you blame her?

We even had time for her own little mini photo shoot at the end. Because every big sister deserves her own spotlight too. 🙂

As a St. Louis baby photographer, I love getting to follow my littlest clients along as they hit each new milestone. Felix’s mom signed up for my Baby Club Plan, which a great way to document your child’s first year. This includes a newborn session, 6 month milestone session, and 12 month milestone session. These are my favorite ages to document, and Felix was such a beautiful baby! When I saw him again for his 6 month session he was even more handsome than last time. Can you believe those beautiful big blue eyes – which he get’s from his beautiful mama.

This little guy was so easy to work with, which definitely makes my job easier. Working with children does help you to crate a few special tricks in getting those smiles, but no tricks were needed with Felix. He is definitely one happy little man.

Here are just a few of my favorite images from his session…

Meet Savannah! I love being able to meet so many different personality types with my seniors. Helping them to feel their best, and being comfortable enough to really open up with me during their session is key. Savannah is Class of 2016 at Kirkwood High School and just graduated this summer. She is so sweet and was a little bit shy, but she quickly opened up and the beautiful spirit that comes through her eyes is amazing! Savannah loves cheerleading, shopping, going to the movies…and Starbucks – she’s my kind of girl. 😉 Thank you for choosing me as your senior photographer Savannah, I hope you had an awesome senior year and have a blast with your Freshman year at SIUC this fall. 🙂

Being a St. Louis senior photographer, I love creating fun, memorable sessions for my seniors to remember their senior year. I have so many sessions from this summer to share with you, starting with Madison’s high school senior session. Madison is a senior at Fox High School, and she was such a natural in front of the camera. This made my job SO easy! Her smile is so contagious and can I just say – THAT hair – so jealous. 🙂

Madison graduated this summer and will be heading off to Mizzou for college in the fall. Best of luck to you Madison, I hope your freshman year is amazing!
