Hello! My name is Caitlin Anderson, and besides being a portrait and birth photographer, I am wife to an amazing husband & a mother to a beautiful little girl (with another baby due early Spring 2018!).
She’s my world right now and keeps me on my toes, but when I’m not chasing her around or editing photos from my latest shoot, I enjoy reading a good book. I’m always listening to music of some genre. Chai or anything cinnamon flavored is my favorite. Little girl & I love going for walks to the park, where we sit and watch the squirrels chase each other. My husband loves a good deal, and we can often be found on weekends hitting all the local yard sales. And in the evenings, when all the work is done for the day, we like to curl up on the couch and settle in for a good movie or tv show. I thank God every day for the life I have and the people in it <3
On the business side of things, I got my start in photography when my mother, an amazing photographer in her own right (link), bought a camera after my brother was born to document our lives better. As she took more classes & improved her skills, she upgraded her cameras and began shooting sessions for other people. She trained me as her assistant, and I began photographing by her side. After we moved here to Missouri, I launched my own business as a birth photographer & doula (link) in the Greater St. Louis area. This month I launched my portrait photography page, expanding my services to address my clients’ desire for additional sessions after their child is born. It is my dream to be able to photograph families as they “ grow up”, from the moment two becomes three to that family photo taken right before the kids head off to college, and every beautiful moment in between.
My photography style I like to call Classy Natural. I don’t have a studio, so all my sessions are done on location, either at your home, your chosen birth location, or at a local park or main street. I love using natural light, and my editing is very minimal to ensure everyone’s beauty & personality shines through. Black & white photography I feel is timeless, so while a good deal of your photos will be in color, there will also be a healthy mix of B&W as well.
I’d love to meet with you in person to see if we’d be a good match! Feel free to call me at 636-290-9465 or email me at CaitlinAPhotographySTL@gmail.com to schedule a meeting or session, or with any questions you might have. I look forward to talking with you!
