Kansas City Baby Photography Ethan

A Baby Planner in the Studio

This is one of our baby planners in our Kansas City Baby Photography studio, Ethan. He still has that same sweet little baby face that he came into the studio with for his newborn session. I am thinking his eyes are going to stay this bright blue color, they are just gorgeous. He’s a smiley little guy, giggles a lot and has given me great expressions throughout documenting his first year with a variety of poses, backdrops and hats. Mom brought the cutest outfits for his 3-12 month sessions.

Tiny Toes Plan

Our Tiny Toes Print Plan gives you a newborn, 3-month, 6-month and one-year session with cake smash. You provide the cake and I will provide the stand and the set. We can customize this to include any color scheme you would like. You also receive a 10 x 20 storyboard with images of your choice from all four sessions at the end of the year. It’s a great way to get all of the first year milestones: the curled up newborn stage, the more alert 3-month stage, the sitting up six month stage and the standing up and/or walking one-year milestone. You are welcome to bring an outfit for the cake smash, but I have diaper covers so we can show all of that sweet baby skin with cake stuck to it. ( Easier clean up).

Ethan likes cake.  This raspberry filled and gorgeous cake was gone at the end of his cake smash session. He definitely holds the record for the most cake actually eaten at a smash cake session. He was all smiles from the first bite and didn’t mind getting his hands sticky at all. So fun! I mom chose images in color, but I just love the clean and airy look of black and white for those images in particular.

Cake smashes are incorporated in our one-year baby sessions, find details here and schedule your baby photography online on our calendar.

Kansas City Royals Newborn Photography

Another Royals Fan in the Studio

This little guy will be watching a lot of Royals games with his mom and dad in the future. He had a sweet little face and little-puckered lips. He slept like a dream in my vintage props and didn’t mind one bit when I put lots of hats on him. It is my great hope that I am still able to use this newborn Kansas City Royals hat with enthusiasm again next year in my photography sessions. It was a joy to work with this family. I hope to see you guys in our Kansas City newborn photography studio again very soon!

We Are So Proud of Our Team

What a fun season! I had a blast watching the games with our boys even though their attention span was about 15 minutes, there were some great memories made!

    KC River Market Family Photography

    It was great to see this family again, plus their newer addition! Mom told me they were doing something “not so casual”.  I was super surprised and delighted to see this gorgeous family meet me. Loved the contrast of the KC River Market farmer’s market with their dressy clothes! No matter how many times I shoot there, I always find a new spot. Lots of laughs at this session, family photography should be fun!

    A little history on the River Market. The large, open-air farmer’s market began in the 1800’s. The history is full of french influences and even some mobster stories. Interesting stuff.

    1920’s Rivermarket:

    In the 1920’s, life around the City Market became busy with business. The City Market included City Hall, the Gillis Opera House, the Jackson County Courthouse, two newspapers and a number of other businesses.

    1930’s Rivermarket

    The City Market underwent an extensive renovation with a large public works project. New buildings were constructed through the job initiatives of the Roosevelt Administration.

    1960’s Rivermarket

    During the 1960’s the Market was predominantly a produce-only destination. The City Market and the surrounding River Quay area became a popular district with bars, restaurants, and other businesses.

    1980’s & 1990’s Rivermarket

    In the late 1980’s and 90’s, $14.5 million in public and private funds were invested in the City Market revamp the surrounding River Market neighborhood.

    The City Market structures were rehabbed in 1990, resulting in over 100,000 square feet of restaurants, food-related shops, retail and museum exhibit space. The addition of the Arabia Steamboat Museum helping in taking a major step forward leading the way toward downtown redevelopment.


    Returning to its roots as a food related attraction, the City Market has received national acclaim in the last couple of decades. In 2002, the City Market received a Great Markets/Great Cities Award of Distinction from the Project for Public Spaces. In 2007, the City Market celebrated its 150th anniversary season. With a record attendance of more than 700,000 visitors, the City Market was listed as Kansas City’s 6th Top Area Attraction in the Kansas City Business Journal.

    My first studio space was at the Rivermarket and I have always felt safe shooting here, it holds a special place in my heart.

    We’d love to capture your family in the Rivermarket area! See our pricing/booking page for details!
