Newborn Baby Photography
Welcome to Kansas City's Newborn Photography Specialists
We have been specializing in photographing newborns since 2004 and we know what we're doing! We have literally photographed hundreds of newborns. We know what we're doing and we always put baby's needs first.
Expect the session to last about one and a half hours. Parents and siblings are always welcome to get in a few photos as well.
We can do either a studio session or I can bring a mini studio to your home. See pricing and details below.
WE ONLY PHOTOGRAPH ONE NEWBORN SESSION A DAY so book your session early. Contact us today to get availability.
Newborn session fee in studio: $85
Newborn session fee in your home: $125

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN SESSION?
I can book up a month or so in advance (especially during the busy times (late summer, fall, and around holidays). Please call to book your session while you are still pregnant (about 2 months before your due date). I only book one newborn session a day, so I have limited availability. When you call, we will guess on a date and get that on the calendar. Once baby arrives we will confirm that time or move the session date/time as necessary.
IF YOUR BABY HAS ALREADY ARRIVED, call ASAP to check our schedule. I may be able to squeeze you in.
WHAT AGE IS BEST TO PHOTOGRAPH MY NEWBORN?
I love to photograph babies within the first 2 weeks of birth. That's when the magic can happen. They are tiny, still wrinkly, and haven't figured out they're born yet (so they're not to active). At 3 weeks, it can get really difficult to get those cute poses, but still doable so please call if this is you! Of course if you have an early delivery or if there are any complications, we can accommodate.
CAN YOU TAKE THE NEWBORN PHOTOS AT MY HOME?
YES! The in-home sessions are for BABY ONLY. This fee covers my time and talent and does not apply toward your image purchase. I will bring baskets, wraps, and my portable mini studio, so I'll need about an 8 foot x 8 foot shooting area in your home. Often times we move out a coffee table or push the kitchen table to the side to get enough room. Call if you are unsure if your home will work.
DO WE GET THE SAME PHOTOS WHETHER WE ARE AT THE STUDIO OR OUR HOME FOR PHOTOS?
The two sessions will be different. I bring a small studio to your home for baby only. If you want the be in the photos, or have siblings to get in the photos, those are best done at the studio where I have more room to work. I have everything at the studio that I bring to your home, except I have more baskets and items available at the studio (I can't bring everything to your home)!
HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION LAST?
A typical newborn session in the studio lasts an hour and a half. I will arrive a bit early to get setup so we can start on time.
The in-home sessions with baby only can last about an hour (maybe a little longer with my equipment setup and break down time) and depending on how cooperative baby is that day.
DO YOU HAVE PROPS?
I provide blankets, wraps, and baskets. I have a few headbands and knitted hats/outfits you are welcome to use. If you would like to include a special blanket or heirloom piece, please bring it! We can also incorporate a small stuffed animal, and will do our best with other items that are near and dear to you (we've utilized deer antlers, football Jerseys, golf club/ball, baseball mitt, fireman hat, etc,, If you are going to bring props, please give me a heads up in advance so I can creatively prepare.
WHAT IF HAVE TWINS?
Double congrats to you! Two babies means a longer photo session and more images. Therefore, the session fee doubles, but we do not make you purchase two separate packages. You can fit both baby's photo selections into the package of your choice.
