I’ve been friends with Kaitlyn Finke basically my whole life and it’s always a joy to capture their sweet family. I love their kids so much, but they definitely loved the water more last night . I wish it wasn’t a mini session because I could have snapped away at all the fun they were […]

The Finke Family | Summer Creek Mini Session

Well little miss Lucy stole the show during this session. She was an absolute doll the entire time and kept giving me the sweetest smiles. I may have had to make a lot of silly faces, but she would eventually cave in and give me a big grin. It was a special session because Melissa […]

The Overfelt Family | Summer Mini Creek Session

Every baby is a gift and a blessing, but there is also something so special about the little ones that were prayed for and waited for for years. Allison & Caleb went through many years of a lot of heartbreak to finally meet their sweet little Reed. I had such a great time doing their […]

Our good friends, Becky & Kevin, got married this past December (you might recognize them from some pictures I posted), but due to covid, had to keep the wedding extremely small. They had to wait until August to have a bigger reception and vowel renewal in front of all their friends and family. It was […]

I had the best time with Allison & Caleb at Forest Park. We a perfect evening in my favorite little spot in Forest Park… minus the mosquitos. I’m so thankful I remembered to pack some bug spray. Allison & Caleb were an absolute delight to spend the evening with. They were a fun couple to […]

When we visited some of our best friend’s in Green Bay a few weeks ago, my friend, Molly, asked if I could take some pictures of her and her one year old son, Liam. So I of course brought along my camera and got to do a very mini session in their backyard and his […]

Lifestyle One Year Old Mommy and Me Session | Gretchen Day Photography

Fitz was just a dream baby the entire session. He was so sleepy and sweet, I could have captured him all day. But, I’m not gonna lie, his older brother, Ike, was SO MUCH fun to photograph. He was completely smitten with his new baby brother and it was the cutest thing! Jill and Rex […]

Frederick “Fitz” Rex | In Home Newborn Session

The Porter Family are some of our best friends. They graciously accepted to be a model family so I could get some pictures to advertise for some Creek Mini Sessions I’m doing this summer. I still have a couple spots left on August 21st BTW. We had a TON of rain for a few days […]

Mastodon State Historic Site Creek Family Mini Session | Gretchen Day Photography

This newborn session is embarrassingly late…. like by a year! I was going through some old galleries on Lightroom and realized that I never did a blog post for Margaret’s newborn session (sorry Anne & Nicholas). We sold and bought a new house right after I did their session which is the only reason I […]

Sweet baby Margaret | St. Louis Lifestyle In Home Newborn Photography

One of my best friends from college, Molly, and fellow photographer ( came in town from Green Bay to photograph a wedding. Her second shooter couldn’t make it last minute so I got the opportunity to photograph the wedding with her. We had an absolute blast. We talk photography all the time, but have never […]
