Empire Photography Availability


I have started this post as a way to help streamline the booking process, and I hope it is helpful to you. I want the scheduling process to be efficient so that we can get started on the FUN stuff:

Creating the most amazing session and images for you and your family!

My business hours are by appointment only.

I am currently booking Fall 2017 and am limiting sessions. I have just a handful of openings left the remainder of the year, and all weekends are booked. Many times I book months or even years out with weddings and families in from out of town. I currently have a waiting list started and am sending this schedule to those at the top of the list.

It is my recommendation to book ahead of time, so that we can get you on the calendar. If you have a special event and the date is not listed below, kindly let me know, and we will see if arrangements can be made, but we cannot guarantee this.

Please keep in mind that you should schedule your session no later than 6 weeks prior to needing your final product in hand.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I appreciate your business and am truly looking forward to working with you.

It is no secret that I have always had a passion for styled shoots. Styled sessions allow me to really dig deep creatively and create some beautiful artwork for my clients. Takira reached out to me last September seeking a Styled Maternity Session. She wanted something truly unique. We met for coffee with one of my favorite creatives, Mary with Finch Vintage Rentals, and let me just tell you: collaborating with these two women was a dream. From dreamcatchers and teepees, to horses and tutus, our creative minds were hard at work and I just love what we came up with! Takira connected with the camera beautifully, and you would honestly think she was a professional model. This is her first baby, and we used many of the concepts from her maternity session for her newborn session. It was truly an honor to capture this time in her life in such a creative and fun way!

As part of a fun winter collaboration with another photographer in the St. Louis Area, I have been enjoying some creative and artistic dance photo sessions at my new studio at The Meadows at Lake St. Louis. As part of our dance package, we are offering head shots, and I just loved these so much I had to share :-)
