About me: Hello! My name is Becky. I am a natural light, freelance photographer located in O’Fallon, Missouri. From the time I was given my first point-and-shoot camera at the young age of 6, I knew almost immediately that photography was important to me. For me, photography is a way I can truly express myself. Each person, animal, or object I photograph is a creative and beautiful picture just waiting to fill a canvas! Every moment or memory is something to be remembered and cherished. I shoot in a photo journalistic style. there is little posing in my sessions! I like to capture the true smiles, tears, and excitement seen in everyday life…
Why did you choose to be a photographer? For me, photography is not in any way a job! I love what I do… it is my passion. It is truly the way I can express myself. As a mother myself, I know that every passing moment is something I never want to forget, which is why capturing it is so important to me. I love to capture life daily in my own home through my camera. This is my life, and I love it!
What is your primary focus? My primary focus is newborns , babies, and birth stories. I positively love capturing little ones in their first weeks earthside. And anyone who knows me, knows I’m all in it for the extra baby snuggles as well. 😉 Being a mama of 4 young kiddos myself and having worked in daycare for 7+ years, I have a knack at getting colicky newborns to sleep, calming hyper little ones, and making tears disappear… My past newborn session clients jokingly call me the Baby Whisperer.
Where does the name “Flutterbug” come from ? : Flutterbug was my nickname as a child. My parents dubbed me this nickname as I could never sit still as a kid and was always so antsy..but always so happy. I feel the name fits as babies and kids simply cannot sit still..and are indeed the most happiest and unpredictable beings on the planet!
Do you have a studio? : No. I come to you! As a mother of 4 little ones myself, I know how rough those first weeks are with a newborn. That’s why I do all my newborn sessions in my clients’ homes! No need to get everyone dressed and out the door early in the morning. Enjoy yourself at home, have a cup of coffee, and I will bring everything to you. For sessions other than newborn such as watch me grow milestone sessions, we can go to your home, or I can offer many gorgeous parks and places to do your session! I have hundreds of backdrops , bonnets, blankets, and props and of course always like shooting outdoors as well! Whichever you prefer!
Do you photograph events?: Yes! Birth of your baby , baptisms, etc!
