Hello there, so nice to meet you!

ABOUT ME

I know how important it is to find the Kansas City photographer that is a good fit. I am so glad that you have happened upon my website and would like share a little bit about myself.

A FEW RANDOM TIDBITS

I love being around people. Especially 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)

My favorite thing to do is to travel with my family 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.

HOW I BEGAN MY PHOTOGRAPHY CAREEr

I have been a Kansas City newborn photographer as well as maternity, child, wedding and family photographer for over eleven 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.

I AM HOMETOWN PROUD

I operate my business out of a beautiful 1,000 square foot, commercial studio in the historic area of downtown Blue Springs. This is the same street where I have wonderful memories of getting lollypops at the Bank and Post Office as a kiddo.

How I Get Great Expressions From Your Child

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.


HOW I POSE NEWBORNS

Several area pediatricians have sat in on my sessions and 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.

ABOUT YOU

If you love my work and have an interest in working with me, here are some things I’m assuming about you:

1. You value photography.
2. You appreciate timeless style.
3. You believe a person can be professional AND fun at the same time.
4. You like what you see in my portfolio and think we would have a great time working together.

 

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