Kansas City Newborn Photographer and native, Melissa Pfannenstiel is a published photographer who captures the most joyful times in life: from the newest days of your baby after birth to your toddler sitting up and taking their first steps, through to childhood years, graduation and marriage. Newborns and babies are her specialty. {She LOVES babies}.

Melissa has a fresh, pure style and creative perspective. Her use of color is rich and classic and her black and white images have dimension and depth. Melissa captures delicate portraits of your newborn baby or child with incredible clarity. She began photography from a career standpoint in 2002 as a product photographer. Captures in Time Photography came to fruition in 2007.

After several years of on-location work, her luxurious and modern boutique studio became a cornerstone on historic Main Street in Blue Springs in early 2011. It is the longest-running retail studio specializing in newborn photography in the eastern Kansas City area.

The studio lighting methods Melissa uses are sophisticated and come with over ten years of portrait photography experience in the Kansas City area. Recently complimented by a commercial photographer and creative director from New York who brought his newborn to the studio, he said, "You really UNDERSTAND the use of light, shadow and lighting ratios. There are not many in this area who do."

New mothers deserve to be captured in the best light with their new bundle of joy and Melissa knows how to make your beauty shine through in parent portraits, even when you are a bit sleepy by posing you in a flattering way and lighting to accent your best features.

Melissa's studio is custom and upscale, with a wide variety of backdrop and prop options that you just can't get when a photographer comes to your home. Melissa encourages parents to select their favorite backdrops and builds upon those selections to create a set that is cohesive in color and texture.

In addition to being a Kansas City newborn photographer, Melissa provides maternity, baby child, senior and family photography. She also offers timeless wedding photography in the Kansas City area. Studio and on-location sessions are also available for the Kansas City metro area, as well as the Lees Summit, Blue Springs, Grain Valley, Greenwood, Overland Park, Olathe, Leawood, Lenexa, North Kansas City and Liberty areas.
