Fairfeather Art is Mid-Missouri’s professional newborn studio. Mel of Fairfeather Art is a newborn specialist, providing a calm environment and perfectly polished images that will never go out of style. She is a mom to five and has been studying the art of photographing newborns since 2009. She is skilled in studio lighting and newborn safety.
We limit the amount of sessions we offer each month in order to fully cater to our clients, going above and beyond to ensure that each baby has a unique series of images with mixture of poses and props. In fact, we are so particular about the nature of the items that are used for each session that many are handmade by your artist. Our style is organic and natural, with minimal retouching in order to show the true nature of your brand new baby. We are currently booking babies into 2015.
Simply put, we love what we do. We prefer to keep things simple, from initial inquiry, to checkout, to the session and beyond. We do all we can to ensure that both baby and parents are relaxed throughout their session. Our goal is to not only provide each family with beautiful imagery, but also a fun and relaxing experience. We don’t like to be pressured by pushy salespeople, and so we promise not to pressure you. Our pricing structure is straightforward, what you see here on our website is exactly what you can expect.
Our clients are the type of people who are choosy with their baby’s first pictures. They want them to be special and appreciate that they will receive the exact same artistry that we display here on our website. We value your investment, knowing full well that there are many other studios that you may choose from.
In order to serve you best, we offer a baby registry, split payments, complimentary maternity sessions, up front pricing and digital image packages so you won’t miss a thing.

She went above and beyond to deliver and the results are easy to see every day on our walls! – Carl and Tisha Davidson
