Happy fall! This post is a bit all over the place. You are forewarned. When I was doing some search engine optimization with my site, I noticed I seem to be way down in rank for this keyword: “best kansas city newborn photos.” You have to mention keywords on your site and text to rank well. This is one of those phrases that is hard to use in context without it looking completely arrogant. I suppose I will integrate that into this post in a tongue and cheek way. If you are looking for a newborn photographer, see my blog post on how to find the best Kansas City newborn photographer for you!

Consequently, I am very behind in blogging but don’t think that I haven’t been shooting. For me, I like to catch up with blogging for the year in the winter when it is cold and a bit slower! The air is crisp and I am in the midst of the busy Kansas City family fall photography month. It would be so nice if our October lasted so much longer!

A bit of studio news, Captures in Time has a new website that I am loving. ProPhoto 6 has a new backend and some awesome sites you can start with. Super-easy to customize.

Funny story…I was editing this session and my husband came up to my computer and said, “Is that Hosmer?” I think I would have mentioned if he booked a newborn session. You can see the resemblance in the eyes! Salvador Perez has a new baby, according to Instagram, btw.

During his newborn session, Conner was such a cooperative little guy! Almost all the while, he was not fussy in the slightest and just a dream to work with. His mama was just gorgeous, too.

Now, I always talk about how black on black is my favorite color palette for the parent and newborn series in the session. Because it provides contrast with the skin tones when shot correctly the skin will just glow. New moms always have a glow anyway. Well, I just loved working these new parents, such a fun shoot! I hope you guys are enjoying your new home with your sweet little man!

    kansas city newborn pictures

    This is the third newborn I have photographed for this GORGEOUS mama. This one gave me lots of sleepy time and hilarious expressions. I adore his hair!

    Cindy was one of my first clients. We shot her first maternity session in her living room many years ago. Her second maternity was done on their property in the country. She was a natural in front of the camera. I have enjoyed photographing her other two children through the years at the studio and their ranch. We are blessed to have so many repeat clients return for Kansas City newborn pictures in the area. Take a peek at his baby brother’s newborn pictures from 2010.

      Newborn Photography

      Meet Brock

      He was super-sweet and a great sleeper, with beachy blonde hair that would make Gwyneth Paltrow jealous. I love his name, it is so classic and a little tough-guy.

      One of the things I love about newborn photography is capturing this new dynamic with mom, dad, and baby. I also love babies in and of themselves, of course. (BABIES = MY FAVORITE THINGS).

      Along with giving birth, I think parents (yes, dad, too) give birth to their “parent self'”.  You are forever changed. There is no experience in this world that will ever compare to welcoming your baby into this big world, (in my opinion). It’s monumental. All of a sudden, you see the big picture so clearly. A new purpose and fresh perspective.

      Remembering back, I had such a newfound appreciation for my own parents. Sadly, my dog lost his ranking and I felt guilty. (RIP, Echo, you were the first baby, I promise). I wondered what on earth I did with all of my time before the baby came along. Surely, I had so much time I could have volunteered to make the world a better place, for several different charities.

      Mom and dad are all of a sudden on this newly created “team” together. Team “do the best thing for our baby”. When you figure out ways to make this new little puzzle of life you brought home content, it bonds you together.

      It’s remarkable to watch parents like these two work together to make the small things go smoothly during their newborn photography session. Those that are in sync with each other and are extra kind to each other during those tiring first weeks make me smile. When I can get some of that emotion in-camera, those are my favorite captures.

      Captures in Time Photography is a studio specializing in newborn, maternity and baby photography. Melissa Pfannenstiel is one of Kansas City’s finest newborn photographers and is committed to providing her clients with beautiful images.
