I was just watching one of my favorite photographers speak.  Jessica Claire was talking about shooting weddings with intention.  I was sitting here editing and thinking about my intentions when I am shooting a newborn.  I have always included with my newborn sessions, “black on black”.   Basically, the biggest reasons for this is that it is classic.  It’s never going to be trendy on the walls of your home.  I have seen clients hang their newborn portraits in their dining room.  That is how well they are going to integrate with decor.  Black is also slimming and easy to coordinate the week after you have a baby.  I also include some “lighter” shots that are bright and airy.   Of course, I try my best to capture anything that the parents have in mind.  So, I am thinking about portraits for your walls, for an album, for grandparent gifts, as well as an artsy and different take on things.

Mom has had this session planned for quite a while, which is the best way to plan.  On a pinch though, I can almost always get newborns in during the week at the studio.  Getting them in under two weeks old is ideal!

This little girl slept and gave us such sweet little poses!  She was just a pleasure.  Thanks so much Brea and Larry, for allowing me to take his first ever portraits!

    Kansas City Newborn Photographer Hanging Baby Basket Pose

    It’s raining newborns!   I don’t have much time to blog, so here are just a few, editing like crazy.

    The first image is one of my most requested posed.  It takes a little bit of time, baby is just one inch above a 5 foot, plush beanbag and it is done with safety in mind. As one of my favorite poses, I just love it when parents ask for this one!

    The little guy was so content wearing his mom’s really beautiful creations that she crocheted.  Little ‘sis was happy as a clam to be having her portraits taken with the new little guy.  At the end of the session, she was on mom’s lap with little brother in her arm and asked, “Why do I have to hold him?”

      This gorgeous little man we will call Baby H really didn’t make a peep this Kansas City newborn photographer.   Mr. H was charming and his hat is precious.  Don’t you love his wavy hair?  I love it when parents want to incorporate handmade things and baby gifts.  Congratulations, mom, and dad.  Thank you, Emily, for choosing my portraits as a baby gift.

        “Capturing Bliss” is the wedding and event side of  “Captures in Time Photography”.  I’d like to take a minute to tell you a story about Leah and Michael’s wedding day.

        Meeting Leah and her mother for the first time,  I knew that this was going to be fun.  They giggled just as much as I do,  if not more.  Click!   Driving up to the farm the evening of the rehearsal, the sky was as blue as the cornflower crayon in a crayola box,  peppered the fluffy kind of white clouds.  The only thing that would make these scene less than perfect was the 50 mile an hour wind that was knocking the breath out of us.  The preparations went on, good laughs, great food, everything was coming together. 

        The morning of the wedding, the weather started out much like the night before.  More giggles and “ooo’s and ah’s” over perfect curles and lashes and how gorgeous the bride was.  Leah surprised Michael and tapped him on the shoulder.  His eyes were big and he got this huge smile on his face.  It was a great moment.  We all drove off to some nearby locations for the wedding party.

        As the time of the ceremony drew closer, the winds grew calmer and it felt like a new day.  At 6pm, the weather was perfect.  The Arbor, hand built by Michael, overlooked the rolling hills of the country.  Norah Jones was playing as Leah walked down the isle. 

        A country wedding with all of the class of a country club…with the fresh air and clear sky and stars.  Here’s the story of their wedding day in images.



        Gorgeous flowers, beautiful details.
