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!

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 challenges..family 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!!

This session was one of those times where you meet a family and just feel right at home. I instantly clicked with Mom & Dad and felt like I had met them before. I was completely smitten with big brother, Calvin! He was the cutest…and I absolutely adore his little curls.  Chase was a super sweet baby to photograph…worked all the poses like a champ!  The light was challenging that day but Mom & Dad were so wonderfully patient with me while I worked through where to shoot and…what furniture to move lol!  What a great session!  Congrats, G Family!!

This family is seriously the best!! The boys always laugh at my silly jokes and terrible singing. Mom and Dad have it together..four kids and they have it together. I’m in awe of them most of the time. I always look forward to their sessions and seeing what outfits Mom is going to come up with. She nails it every time and makes “by hand” much of the clothing. Can you say “Supermom”?!

What a beautiful day to photograph this beautiful family! It had been a while since I had seen this family and their kiddos. The little guy was just a baby…now he is so grown up! Both of the kiddos were so well-behaved and so much fun! It was so great to catch up with them and see how much the children have grown!
