One of my favorite parts about newborn sessions is that they don’t have to take place in the magic 4-14 days after birth. They can occur even when baby is 2-4 months old and beyond. A lifestyle session simply captures your family in the current season you find yourselves. My goal is to document a […]

This year I decided to do 4 sets of Fall Mini Sessions because fall is busy season for photographers #familychristmaspictures. October’s Mini Sessions took place in the lovely Tower Grove Park. The leaves hadn’t quite turned the magical colors we are seeing now, but there is definitely a hint of fall in the air! Hope […]

Fall Mini Sessions – October | St. Louis Lifestyle Family Photographer | Gretchen Day Photography

This is probably one of those blog posts where I overshare pictures of the session, but I just love this family so much and their pictures turned out so beautifully! How could I not overshare?! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do, this crew is definitely part of our tribe of people […]

Jackson Family 2018 | St. Louis Lifestyle Family Photographer | Gretchen Day Photography

You will probably recognize the Turner family from my Fall Mini Session advertisements this year using their family session from last year. I used to work with Sarah at The Covering House and it has been a delight to see her family again through photo shoots. We shared a lot of laughs as you will […]

Turner Family 2018 | St. Louis Lifestyle Family Photographer | Gretchen Day Photography

It is a true joy to photograph repeat clients. I absolutely LOVE watching my families grow and to capture each new season. The last time I photographed the Baker family was for a newborn session… let’s just say a lot has changed in less than a year! I couldn’t believe how big their youngest was […]

In case you didn’t know, this is my family! My good friend, Molly, with Molly Thomas Photography met us at a park one beautiful (but very hot) September evening to capture these beautiful pictures. We swapped memory cards so we’d be able to edit in our own artistic style. I was even able to take some of […]

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you probably recognize this sweet family. Molly and Spencer are some of our dearest friends from college and Molly is a fellow photographer. So since both of us are photographers, we decided to swap pictures for the second time this year. So we met at an […]

It was an a perfect summer evening in Forest Park with an absolutely adorable family. I had a blast capturing The Reinhold family. They had a fun time exploring new flowers and plants in the tall prairie as well as playing some games together. It’s sessions like these that make my job easy – what […]

Reinhold Family Summer Session | St. Louis Lifestyle Family Photographer | Gretchen Day Photography

What is it about sunflowers that create such awe and wonder in us? As I was editing this session, the word that kept coming to mind was “magical”. Obviously the Coopers are an adorable family, but the bursts of gold sunflowers throughout each picture really did create something quite magical. I’ve had the privilege of […]

Sunflower Sunset Session | St. Louis Lifestyle Family Photographer | Gretchen Day Photography

We’ve been friends with the Jacksons for almost a decade. For those of you that don’t know, our lives have basically overlapped since we met in college. Dani and I lived next door to each other in our freshman dorm, we both dated the same year, engaged the same year, married within a month of […]
