Jennifer Mossman Photography bio picture
  • Hello!

    Thanks for visiting Jennifer Mossman Photography! I am a natural light photographer in the St. Louis area specializing in maternity, newborn, child, and family photography. I hope that you can see from my work how much I love what I do! My favorite part of being a photographer is meeting new families and seeing the joy that children bring to their lives. Being able to capture that joy is priceless. Thanks for visiting!

What a joy it was to photograph newborn baby Luke! I met his momma way back when my oldest son was going to the Little Gym. This was 9 years ago! Lacy was just in college and a teacher at the kid’s gym. Lacy was great with kids even then. She was an excellent instructor! I just can’t believe that this young lady now has a baby of her own. Time sure does fly! It was priceless seeing her in the role of mom. I am so very happy for her and her husband on the birth of their son! Congrats, Luke & Lacy!!


This thoughtful group surprised their parents with updated photos of all of the kids and grandkids! I had a blast with this group. You could tell that they all loved being together and the grandkids were so much fun. Part of the family had come all the way from Texas to spend the holidays with the family. I’m so glad that we could get this session in while they were in town.


There is really nothing like a newborn session. You are coming into a home a stranger in a lot of cases and then you are leaving feeling like part of the family. It is such a raw, emotional time for a family. I feel so honored that my families welcome me into their homes with such trust.  I don’t take that trust lightly as I know that for those few hours, I am in charge of the most precious person in their lives.  I hope that every move I make when I am in their home shows how much care that I have for their new baby.  I have been blessed to be able to photograph this lovely family at some of their most special times. They have become great friends and I always look forward to their sessions. I am so happy and excited for them as they welcome their newest family member…sweet Henry!


Not gonna lie…I used to get really nervous about extended family sessions! I felt like there were so many people to organize and direct. What if no one would listen or the kids weren’t cooperating? What if? What if? I’m not sure why I was working myself up so much about these. Any of the “what ifs” in my head could happen at any given session. Extended family sessions have actually become one of my favorite types of sessions. It’s always going to be challenging when there are lots of little ones, but it just is what it is. Everyone gets that and understands. Personally, I would rather have a photo that documents how life is in the moment than nothing at all. These are sessions that might be difficult to schedule. They might be frustrating at times. But, trust me, it is worth it to have a photographic memory of your family with all your loved ones present. I’m extremely happy that I could do this extended family session for my dear longtime friends. We went through the normal scheduling members living out of town, weather, availability, etc. We almost cancelled because the temperature dropped radically on us the day before the shoot. I’m so so glad that we just went for it. Now this family has these memories of their family as it is now forever!


This little family was so welcoming and sweet! Their daughter reminded me so much of my own little girl. She was so excited to be a big sister! My favorite thing about newborn Grant was his perfect chunkiness. He was such a healthy chunky newborn! He slept like a rockstar through all his poses and we even got some adorable container shots at the end of the session. Congrats, C family, on your new addition!!
