"Amelia is so fun to work with and really knows how to make you feel comfortable and confident during a shoot"

TELL ME MORE

Hey there, I'm Amelia! I started Amelia Hearne Photography in early 2013 in hopes of turning my passion for photography into a successful career and I am now privileged to travel the St. Louis area photographing families, children, and high school seniors among other subjects. I specialize in natural light, lifestyle portraiture and thrive on capturing each individual's unique personality as well as the relational intricacies between family and friends.   

When I am not photographing beautiful clients or editing images you will likely find me at the gym, walking my sweet rescue pup, perusing antique shops and estate sales, or trying to develop a green thumb all while listening to my favorite podcasts. I also work as a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate for children navigating the Child Welfare System.

"I am passionate about turning your ordinary moments into extraordinary memories"

My main goal is to enjoy life as much as my dog! No, seriously...I'm not kidding! This is part of the reason I started Amelia Hearne Photography to begin with. I wanted to create a life  full of passion in which my work doesn't feel like work and I get to meet and interact with amazing people on the daily. Fortunately, I have been able to make this dream a reality in great part thanks to my amazing clients who are super invested in my work and trust my ability to tell their story beautifully and accurately through my lens. 

If I am not on-location for a session, I am usually working from my home studio on the blog, edits, or composing emails. I am SUCH a homebody so this is where I am most productive, and also it means my dog, Mishe, is effectively my co-worker-can't ask for more than that!.  

In addition to photography, I am also very passionate about improving the lives of children impacted by the child welfare system. Through my work as a CASA, I am able to directly influence a child's experience throughout the system by ensuring their voice is heard.

Custom portrait photography is a highly personal experience. I relish the process of getting to know my clients on a individual level and working with them to create portraits that represent their distinctive personalities and emotional connections to one another. I aim to turn your ordinary moments into extraordinary memories and reveal something novel about those I photograph in each portrait.

“I had Amelia for senior pictures and was extremely impressed with her photography. She is so wonderful! She makes the picture-taking less awkward, has a phenomenal eye, and makes the whole process enjoyable. She made me 100% prettier than I actually am with the awesome angles and lighting!”

Anna || Senior Session

"Amelia did my daughter Danielle's Senior pictures. She made the day comfortable and relaxing. She chose a beautiful area in Forest Park that I didn't even know existed! The photos turned out absolutely beautiful and we had so much fun!

Dana || Senior Session

“Amelia was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made me feel comfortable from the very beginning and is a true professional. We’ve shot indoors and outdoors and the photos were beautiful in both settings". 

Sarah || Maternity & Baby's First Year Sessions

Esther || Senior and Personal Branding Sessions

“I’ve had several sessions with Amelia ever since I had my senior pictures taken 3 years ago. She does an amazing job of capturing the prettiest moments and making me feel truly beautiful”

“We instantly fell in love with Amelia's work. What stood out most to us was the scenic spots as well as the love and enjoyment of life shown through all the faces displayed throughout her site. Amelia is so fun to work with and really knows how to make you feel comfortable and confident during a shoot. We hope that the next big chapter of our lives brings us to St. Louis so we have the pleasure of working with Amelia again." 

Erica || Engagement Session

“I am so glad I went with Amelia Hearne Photography. Before the session Amelia was sure to thoroughly explain the process so that we would know exactly what to expect. She also asked questions about our desires for the shoot and worked to tailor everything to our wants and needs. During the session, Amelia put me and my significant other at ease and made sure we were comfortable and received the posing direction we needed throughout the session. The final images turned out wonderfully and we are already planning our next session!”
