Maternity in St. Louis | Emma & Jimmy

From the moment we first met Emma & Jimmy to discuss their maternity plan, we knew they were special. Jimmy is covered in tattoos and dreadlocks, and Emma is a fiery redhead that teaches yoga. We knew right away that they were our people. They march to the beat of their own drum, and are hopelessly in love with each other. Yep, definitely our kinda people. We took them to downtown St. Louis and then over to an intimate garden in Forest Park to capture their rockstar side, and their beautiful earthy hippie vibes too. 

Modern couple posed in front of The Old Post Office in downtown St. Louis for an intimate black and white portrait during their maternity shoot. .

“My name is Emma, I’m a massage therapist and a yoga teacher and I’m pregnant with my third baby! DCCP was so helpful and innovative! I’m thankful for my experience with them because they gave me so many tips on how to pose and what to do with my face.”

“Dawn and Joe never made me feel like I was stupid for not knowing how to pose and they kept it light and fun, no matter how many times I needed correction. From the start of the day they did everything to accommodate me and what I needed, they even brought a pop up tent for my outfit change! I loved that they really thought of everything. Dawn always had new ideas for poses and placement and never made me feel rushed.” 

“Super happy and thankful!!”

“I could tell they really love their work and have fun while doing it too! The final images were even more beautiful than I had imagined and I loved looking at myself and my partner in a different light than usual.” 

Now that their maternity shoot is done, we are thrilled to be shooting birth photography when their little one arrives in the upcoming months! Stay tuned to see more of Emma & Jimmy’s love story unfold through the birth of their baby.
