2016 Holiday Offerings | Products

Mini sessions kick off this weekend so I’m excited to release the 2016 customized holiday cards that I will be offering this year! I offer 5×7, two-sided, flat cards with white envelopes. Sold in sets of 12 (minimum of two sets), colors, fonts and text are customizable!

I also offer ornate, die cut and folded cards, which will truly impress your friends and family. Please ask me about special pricing!



Hop on over to http://studiodesigncatalog.com/MzIyN3x1/estore/all and check out the additional options we are offering this year. If you like one of the cards in the e-store, you can add a selection to your cart and include a note as to which photos or colors you’d like to use, and I will be automatically notified via email!

As always, my card templates from previous years are also available!

2016 Holiday Mini Sessions

Don’t let the holidays sneak up on you! It’s time to book your Holiday Mini Sessions with Five Petals Photography!

We are full!!!!

Here are the details:

Fall Minis

*If it rains on October 29, I’ll have a rain date available. Please keep the morning of October 30 as a tentative makeup day.

*Your gallery of images will be available within two to three weeks, definitely before Thanksgiving. The deadline to submit your Holiday Card order will be December 3, which will allow enough time for delivery to you in time for the holidays.

*Additional cards available for purchase. I offer 5×7, two-sided, flat cards with white envelopes. Sold in sets of 12 (minimum of two sets), colors, fonts and text are customizable!

*Mini sessions are available for child and family sessions, but are not available for newborn or extended family sessions due to time constraints.

**Are you an existing client who is not available for mini sessions, but also didn’t get a chance to schedule your holiday family portrait session? I’ll be happy to create a custom holiday card for you using images from your 2016 session with Five Petals Photography.**

The T Family | Illinois Family Photographer

This fall, I had a wonderful morning with the T family. Baby B was perfect, and I could tell big brother was excited to have another boy in the house. Sweet baby B’s bedroom is just darling (as is the rest of the house), and this family is gorgeous, which made capturing these moments so easy! blog3 blog4 BLog blog2

93 years old. I’m lucky to call this lady ‘Grandma.’


Baby M | St. Louis Newborn Photographer

Love meeting these precious little ones! 144 Untitled-1 097


Holiday Correspondence | St. Louis Family and Children’s Photographer

One of the best parts of the holidays for me, as a photographer, is helping make the lives of my friends and clients just a little easier when they are feeling stressed overwhelmed and overworked! Holiday photos? Check! Holiday photo gifts? Check! Holiday cards designed and delivered before Thanksgiving? CHECK! And boy do I LOVE opening my mailbox! The very first cards to arrive at our house looked awfully familiar! All of them were photographed and designed by me. So great knowing that there are so many more out there putting smiles on client’s faces! Cards

W Family Mini Session | St. Louis Children’s and Family Photographer

Every year, I promise myself I’ll go back after the holidays and post some of the mini sessions I did in the fall since I hate to post them before for fear of spoiling Christmas cards that are going out. But every year, I get caught up in more sessions and school projects and birthdays and I never get around to it. Maybe this year will be different! Or maybe this will be the only one. :) If it is, it’s worth it. This family was awesome! New clients for me and we still managed to capture these (plus more) in our 20 minutes together! W Family

Let It Snow! | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

I don’t love the cold winter months, but I do love missing teeth and this silly silly boy!


All I Want | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

This kid! He has a thousand expressions! But getting these two teeth out?! Ick! I had to put daddy on tooth patrol. A few deep breaths, Eye of the Tiger blaring from the other room and lots of “look mom!” and they were out. THANK GOD. Next step…big boy teeth and the end of this baby face (insert sad mommy)! ALl I want

Sweet Halloweeen | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

I took a break from editing client sessions to enjoy Halloween with my kiddos. They wanted to be donuts. All three of them. And so I pulled out my most basic sewing skills and three little Boeker (k·er)donuts were born. ;) We managed this session despite rain, a misplaced costume and a Dunkin Donuts that only sells sprinkle donuts on certain days. Happy Halloween from my little donuts! 1 Donute 2 Donut 3 Donut
