Maternity Leave

As many of you already know, we are expecting a baby and are due to give birth in late November. Because of this, I will be cutting back on sessions in November and December.

During these two months I will NOT be accepting appointments for the following:
Family Sessions
High School Senior Sessions
Regular Children's Sessions
Couples/Engagement Sessions
Business Portrait Sessions
Pet Sessions

I will, however, continue to book:
Baby's First Year (any babies under 1 year old)
Birthday Sessions (only if child's birthday is in November or December)

I will continue to take and process orders on all previous sessions and I will be offering specials and discounts throughout noevember on extra products and gift certificates so keep checking back often to catch the great deals.

Orders typically take 1-2 weeks before they come in. If your order was placed in late November, please don't be surprized if your pictures are a little later than that. We will do everything we can to make sure your pictures are delivered in a timely manner because we know a lot of you use pictures as Christmas presents.

Sunset and how to relates to outdoor photos

Did you know that the sun sets earlier in October? Many people don't think about it, but the earlier sunset means that outdoor pictures must be taken earlier in the evening. By 6:00 and 7:00 it's just too dark to get any good pictures outside. So, if you were thinking about getting some nice outdoor fall pictures, you'll want to get your session scheduled for 5:00 or earlier. This may mean getting off work early or skipping soccer practice. Normally, the next best option would be to come in on a weekend. Unfortunately, my weekends are completely booked for the rest of this month and I won't be booking sessions for the month of November because I'll be on maternity leave. If you really wanted outdoor photos, I can recommend a friend photographer who may be able to get you in on a weekend and who has similar prices. Call me for her contact information.

Newborn Twins! Portraits by Larissa Photography

Here are a few photos I recently did of a set of newborn twins in St. Louis at a home shoot. These two were adorable and did great getting their pictures taken! I had a lot of fun trying different poses with the twins.

All the photos above were taken in the comfort of my clients home. They didn't have to leave the house and pack up their newborn babies to drive out to my studio. Instead, they opted to have me bring the studio to them. See my website: www.larissaphotography.com for details on location shoots.

Rock Star!

This adorable little rock star came in for halloween costume photos last week and I just couldn't resist making up this collage with a few of her pictures. She was such a ham!

Fall Favorites

Here are a couple of my favorite outdoor fall shots from my most recent portrait special.

And this little guy was a riot... kept trying to feed the apples to his toy horse!
