Newborn Baby Photography
Welcome to Kansas City's Newborn Photography Specialists
"Christy was an absolute professional and took all appropriate precautions to ensure we were comfortable due to COVID. Our session was outdoors, she wore a mask and gloves, sanitized all equipment, and kept her distance whenever possible. We are thankful to have these pictures as memories during this unprecedented time!"

We have been specializing in photographing newborns since 2004 and we know what we're doing! We have literally photographed hundreds of newborns and we always put baby's needs first.
Currently we are doing newborn session in-studio, in the comfort of your home, as well as outdoor (weather permitting).

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.
WHAT IS A NEWBORN MINI SESSION?
That's where we focus on BABY ONLY to capture those precious images. We photograph baby in our wraps, along with baskets and props and focus on the cute little baby parts like fingers and toes. If parents want to be in the session, please purchase the full newborn session.
CAN YOU TAKE THE NEWBORN PHOTOS AT MY HOME?
YES! The in-home mini session includes photos of the baby in our wraps (see above mini session description).
CAN YOU TAKE THE NEWBORN PHOTOS OUTDOORS?
YES! The outdoor mini session includes photos of the BABY ONLY in our wraps in a shaded outdoor location (see above mini session description).
HOW IS THE FULL IN-STUDIO SESSION DIFFERENT?
The main difference is that we do more than just wraps and baskets. We can photograph your baby naked, in outfits, and can include mom, dad and siblings in the photos.
HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION LAST?
A typical mini session lasts about 45 minutes. A full in-studio newborn session lasts about an hour and a half.
DO YOU HAVE PROPS?
I provide blankets, wraps, and baskets and am always adding new things. I have some headbands and knitted hats/outfits you are welcome to use. If you are purchasing a full newborn session, you can also bring a special blanket, heirloom piece or 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 or can purchase additional images to add on.
