Baby Photography Kansas City | Meet Colton

Oh my GOODness! My job creating baby photography in Kansas City doesn’t get much more fun than this. He could not have been any cuter for his “sitter” six-month session!  SO mellow and smiley. I met mom, dad and Colton at the studio. This baby was super relaxed and his red hair and gorgeous, blue eyes are so unique. After a few sets and outfits in the studio, we went outside to play for a little bit with mom and dad.

The six-month milestone is so much fun to document. As soon as they can sit up unassisted, make that call! For several reasons, I prefer the bulk of the six-month session to be in the studio. Parents are welcome to go outdoors with me after a couple of sets and we can get baby/family shots, giving you the best of both worlds for your session.

1.There are fewer distractions in the studio-

When you are outside and a car is driving by, they are very intent on following that car with their eyes. Especially boys, it begins early, this infatuation with vehicles. Outdoors there are many textures that your baby is not as familiar with. As a result, the baby will be exploring those and not glancing at the camera as frequently. Rather than competing with grass and concrete, I will have more of their attention in the studio.

2. Better expressions-

Because the baby is much more comfortable being in a smaller space with mom and dad close by while sitting on their own than out in the “big world”. Also, the studio is the perfect temperature.

3. The lighting is perfection-

Consequently, there is nothing like a studio session for maximizing clarity in a portrait. Studio lighting highlights huge eyes and facial features in a way the sun just doesn’t always do outside.

4. Mom can help style the session, this is so much fun-

Most of all, moms have a blast coordinating sessions at this age by selecting backdrops from our “Style Your Session” website we give you access to after you schedule your appointment. A lot of times, mom will already have outfits selected. Almost always, this site will give you inspiration when you go shopping for your sitter-session! Take a peek at Nordstrom’s baby clothes. They are some of my favorites to photograph!

Thank you so much for bringing him, I hope to see you all again soon!

newborn photography overland park | Meet Nicholas

The Tiny Client

Meet Nicholas. I love the name. I call my Nick “Nickle Pickle”. Only not around his friends, because that would be uncool. 🙂 What a gorgeous family, I adore the colors we used. Mom’s blouse has a nice texture to it and is so delicate in the images with the baby.


The Backdrops

More desired neutral tones and a natural aesthetic for her portraits. We chose the camel color for the parent series. I love this blouse she chose; it has great texture. We always use neutral backdrops in the parent series. This way, they are more timeless, and they will integrate well with your decor.

A Word About Traveling for Your Newborn Session

We have many clients from the Overland Park area that come out to the studio in Blue Springs. I know some moms worry that by the time they arrive after a 30 minute trip in the car, the baby will be hungry. There are no worries, often when clients come in from just ten minutes away, we begin with a full feeding or a quick top-off for baby.

Our Portaits

I specialize in newborn and baby photography. Each image is hand-edited to create an authentic work of art. My boutique tail studio caters to Kansas City’s most discerning clients who are looking for superior quality. The style is soft, vintage, and emotional. I strive to create unique custom portraits that feature the emotions of this special time with baby and family. Remember, your little one will never be this cuddly, tiny and perfectly brand new again!

Welcoming a newborn baby is the most special time in a family’s life. A professional photo session with Captures in Time Photography is a wonderful way to preserve all of these memories for an entire lifetime. Your sweet newborn will be captured with soft blankets, cozy wraps, and knits. The studio offers a lovely selection of vintage newborn photography props, and my 8 years of experience will ensure that you will have a relaxed session. Your portraits can later be preserved as fine art prints, gallery wraps, and albums to be treasured for years to come. We strive to provide the best in Kansas City newborn photography.

Mom is welcome to bring things for her session, but it certainly is not necessary. Often, she will bring a blanket that grandma made or a hat she just couldn’t resist from Etsy.

Interested in your own newborn session? See our pricing & booking page to look up available dates.
