Welcome to Captures in Time Photography!

We are so glad you stopped by!

A multi-faceted and fun-loving, with more than a decade of experience. Melissa began as a Kansas City family photographer in 2007. Nationally published, she captures the most joyful times in life with heirloom portraiture: from the early days to senior year and beyond. Melissa enjoys creating art with images for all age groups with a fresh, natural style, and creative perspective. If you love simplicity and elegance, you will love her style. Her use of color is rich, and her black and white images have dimension and depth. By the same token, Melissa captures delicate images with incredible clarity and sharpness.

Known for her extreme patience with children and quirky, happy personality, Melissa makes your experience feel like more of a play-date than a daunting task on the checklist.
Teens will leave their senior photography session feeling great inside and out.

Happy Clients

The HOUSE Family

Great experience! She photographed my twins and my expectations were exceeded. She has the fine touch!


I Photograph Because
It's my mission

I photograph so that you can see the beauty of your connections. So that you can always look back on the details of that brand new baby that you will remember in the back of your mind when they drive down the road to college for the first time years from now.

These details, these special milestones deserve more than a cell phone image. They deserve a cultivated and artistic eye to capture them with the clarity they deserve. Guys, they deserve a real camera with someone who knows it like that back of their hand.

Lifestyle photography reveals the realness. Your children, your every day are incredible. Life is not staged or perfect. Life is real and real is amazing.


Investing in photography allows you to capture a glimpse of your family's love. Captures in Time Photography uses thirteen years of experience to document your here and now.
