  • Welcome to Traci Branscum Photography – The Blog!!!

    Hi there and welcome to my blog. This is where I showcase my recent sessions, keep you updated on specials and of course update you on life at the Branscum household.

    My goal in photography is to capture life's moments and provide them as lasting memories for my clients. I love the photos that allow our spirits and personalities to shine!

    Please contact me via my website or here at the blog to schedule your own custom portrait session.  Thanks again for stopping by the blog and feel free to leave comments on post.  I love hearing from both clients and future clients.

    My profile picture was taken by the fabulous Holly McCaig.  Holly specializes in both senior portraits as well as weddings.  She is wonderful to work with so feel free to contact her if you are interested in that type of service.  You can check out Holly's site here.

First off I must say this new mom and dad are the absolute sweetest couple!  I enjoyed hearing about how they met and all the exciting events that took place for Miss Chloe’s arrival.   Mom is such a trooper and a   home birth with a midwife.   She couldn’t help but let me know how awesome dad was in helping support her plan and helping all along the way.  They welcomed their new baby girl Chloe on August 28th.

She couldn’t be more perfect!

Thank you again so much F family for allowing me the opportunity to photograph Miss Chloe.  I can’t wait to capture more memories over the next year through her baby plan.   You two are going to be amazing parents!


We have had such wonderful fall weather this year and this family found the perfect spot for the family photos.  Love the rich foliage and how great did Mom do in coordinating outfits for this session!    They had this amazing little area right in their backyard!  Check out the sneak peek from their recent session!

perfect country wedding … Traci Branscum Photography ~ Wentzville, MO

I was so honored when asked to photograph this wedding.  This sweet bride has taught both of my older two kiddos in 2nd grade and they have absolutely loved her!  We met up a couple of times and exchanged emails about the wedding day.  She was so laid back and I knew that it was going to be a wonderful event. 

Thankfully her laid back personality paid off when the forecast started calling for rain on the day of the outdoor planned wedding.  They regrouped and changed the venue into what turned out to be just as wonderful as they could have planned.

The newly wed Mr. and Mrs. Warner…

Maternity session …. Traci branscum photography ~ fenton, MO

Such an exciting time to capture memorable photos!  For new parents to be, especially moms the waiting for baby can seem like such a long time.  I love when clients want to capture the last moments of time before baby arrives.   We planned this session at a local conservation area as they wanted an outdoor laid back feel to their photos.

Here are a few of my favorites of the new parents to be….

Family Fun session … traci branscum photography ~ family portrait photographer ~ Fenton, Missouri

I recently had the opportunity to meet up with this fun family of 5.   They chose the Transportation Museum for their location and what a neat fun place.  I love all the different trains and such…so much to check out!

It was such a cold day already but they were such troopers as we explored the area.

First up little man….look at his beautiful baby blues!!!  This little guy was such a cuddler and sweetie!

He was so interested in everything and was lots lots of fun to follow around!

We went indoors to warm up.  The big girls stuck together in here.  These two little girls were so sweet and I loved hearing them tell about their friends and what they like to play.

Mom and Dad are so great with these kiddos!  You can tell the kids adore their parents as they were constantly hugging and playing with one another.  Love watching families interact like this!





Such beautiful children..
