Portrait locations in Kansas City
The River Market– This is my top location in the Kansas City area. So much color and texture! The lighting is great in my hidden spot and alleys at most any time of day! The best time for sessions here is a Sunday afternoon.
Loose Park- The rose garden is absolutely gorgeous when it is in bloom in spring. It is surrounded by a trail and stone pillars. We get a beautiful backdrop of color as your child walks the bath. There are beautiful bridges over ponds, large trees and open green space. During the fall, the autumn color is vibrant. It is a busy location for photographers, which is the only drawback. I recommend it only on weekdays during the busy season.
Union Station – Built in 1914, Union stations features 850,000 square feet of classic architecture. There is a $75 facility fee for professional photographs, which the client pays if they choose this location. This is a great location for a large group in winter months and upstairs there is a lot of great natural light and this little, round window built into the wall that is so cute for kids to cuddle up on for a picture.
Liberty Memorial – Liberty Memorial has the best view of the downtown KC skyline you can find. It is popular for engagement sessions but is a great spot for families as well with all of Kansas City as the backdrop. It has a really clean and modern look that is hard to find!
Sporting KC– Is your family really into sports? You can have your session in the bleachers for $250 and the field for $500. We’ll bring lights and it will surely be something the kids will remember. This does not include our package fee.
Kauffman Stadium– Another sports option in the home for the Royals! You can take the “Grand Slam Tour” of the Royals’ home stadium. Families will have access to a tour guide and a golf cart. The field and locker rooms are closed but the rest of the stadium is available for portraits. Fees are $55 per person, the photographer gets in free. Only on non-game days.
