SHE’S AN OLD SOUL WITH YOUNG EYES, A VINTAGE HEART AND A BEAUTIFUL MIND. | Nichole Lyons

ABOUT ME: The "about me" section is so difficult to write. How do you describe yourself in text when you are an utterly visual person?

 

FAVORITE THINGS:

I love being around people. I love antiquing and going to estate sales. (So many 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, and family photographer for over thirteen years. Captures in Time Photography began in 2007, though my photography career started in 2002 with product photography. I have a gentle touch and infinite patience with little ones.

 

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. I don't say, "Say cheese!" or tell them to smile. I MAKE them smile.

 

The goal is to ensure that each individual's natural expressions and personality will transfer to your portraits.

I do not rush my sessions; 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 its integrity.

 

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 a 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!
