Hello there


I know how important it is to find the Kansas City newborn photographer that is the best fit for your family and baby. I am so glad that you have happened upon my website and would like you to get to know me.

A few random tidbits:

I love babies and children. (Of course)

I love antiquing and going to estate sales for the studio and our home. (So many cute props and vintage treasures have yet to be found and chalk-painted)

I love to travel to the same places or new places. Just all of the places!

I love music. My toddler clients appreciate my nursery rhyme repertoire sang in a lyric soprano style.

My Background

I have been a Kansas City newborn photographer as well as maternity, child, wedding and family photographer for over ten years. Captures in Time Photography began in 2007, though my photography career began in 2002 with product photography. I have a gentle touch and infinite patience with little ones. 

Best known and requested for my “close-ups” of newborns, babies, and children with great clarity and expressions, I strive to offer each client a gallery with a wide variety.

The Studio & Location
I operate my business out of a beautiful 1,000 square foot, boutique-style studio in the historic and quiet area of downtown Blue Springs and also on location. Captures in Time Photography offers studio portrait sessions as well as outdoor portraiture. I also love to shoot on-location.

How I Get Great Expressions From Your Child
With older children, I believe that the more a child’s photography session feels like a playdate, the better the images will be! My style as a photographer is more soulful than cheesy smiles. The goal is to ensure that the natural expressions and personality of each individual transfers to your portraits.

My sessions are never rushed; I take time getting the expressions and shots needed to make you a beautiful showcase where you receive all of your photos. Each image is digitally processed with careful expertise (but never overdone), to preserve the integrity of the image.

Over a Decade of Experience
With over ten years experience as a portrait photographer, I stand behind my work. Experience and longevity in the field is just one thing that sets our studio apart from the majority.

Pediatrician-approved and Baby-Led Posing

Several Kansas City pediatricians have given my techniques their approval. My newborn posing is "baby led" but never sloppy. This style simply means that I take cues from your baby to position them in the poses that are most comfortable to them. I do not attempt to force poses upon a baby as I believe they are giving us cues for a reason. I do not like to cause babies discomfort (even temporarily) for the sake of portrait sessions. Your baby or child will be in the best of hands at all times in my studio.

I would love the opportunity to create some heirloom quality portraiture for your family. Please feel free to ask me anything!
