Maternity Portraits

USD $400 - USD $500

About This Service
Every pregnancy is a journey. Let me capture yours. Your body is doing an incredibly beautiful thing. Each day you and your little one are growing together. Some days you may not feel like getting in front of a camera but let me asssure you, you will never regret having this moment caputred. You will be surprised how beauitful you can feel during a maternity session. My goal is to use posing, lighting and gorgeous wardrobe to make you feel your best!

These sessions are an opportunity to bond with your partner and allow them to feel more connected to your pregnancy. This is a tangible way your partner can celebrate the new life you are both bringing into this world.

Not your first child? The entire family can be included in these treasured moments. Some older siblings can find it challenging at first to adjust to a new baby in the family. Taking pictures with their pregnant mommy can help them understand that a new person is coming and even get them excited about the baby’s arrival!

You are in center of this production. There are many styles of maternity sessions for everyone's comfort levels. We can achieve fully covered, modest and delicate poses to implied and full nude poses. We use a variety of lighting techniques to flatter every figure. No one is expected to be runway ready but you will feel that way when we get started.

Maternity Photography is a gift to your unborn child. “Mommy, what did you look like when you were pregnant with me?” Wouldn’t it be great if you could answer with a photograph? Your little one will cherish these images their whole lives.

Newborn Portraits

USD $450 - USD $650

About This Service
This moment is fleeting. The newborn days go by so quickly. Each day your baby grows and changes. Before you even know it, weeks and months have passed, and you will find them changing from tiny infants to tumbling toddlers. Taking the time to capture your newborn in the first few weeks of life is a milestone you can never recreate. We take for granted how precious they are and how quickly they will grow.

Newborn Portraits allow your family to continue to cherish and revisit those incredibly beautiful moments for years to come. I am so excited and humbled to document your first ever family portrait with your new baby. It can seem like a burden to put on real clothing and leave the house within the first two to three weeks but we will make this as stress free as we can. We will plan together before your session so that on the day of all you have to do is get there.

Cake Smash Portraits

USD $550

About This Service
This is an exicting time. Your little one is starting to show their true personality. They are enjoying exploring this crazy world. A cake smash session is a fun and joyful way to celebrate the milestone of your little one's birthday. Enjoy their surprise and curiosity as they dig into a birthday cake for the first time. These sessions are so much fun and we can make it easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.

Princesses, pirates, beach, winter, animals, flowers, glitter, dollies, teddies, mermaids, ponies. A theme for everyone. We can suggest some of our favorite backdrop vendors with designed sets so that all you have to do is choose the one your love best! We will order your child’s cake based on your ideas and theme. We pick up your cake, so it’s one less thing you have to worry about handling on picture day! All you have to do is show up.

Before your smash we try to always capture some family and parent poses with your little one. These are genearlly done in the studio but depending on the time of year we can also offer an outdoor location around Kansas City or Lansing, KS. After those are completed, you can change baby into another outfit for some individual one-year portraits. We typically do 2-3 individual sets then move on to the smash. We try to have the set all ready to go before your session, so all we have to do is bring out the cake and let baby start smashing!

Once we bring out the cake, the photo session usually takes about 10-15 minutes. We let baby set the pace, as some little ones are eager to dig into the cake and others are a little more hesitant. Some parents are disappointed if baby doesn’t smash the cake right away. Patience and a break for baby are sometimes necessary, but I assure you we will get some good pictures of this event! No matter what their reaction is, it is a unique memory and will be fun to look at years from now!

The next part is generally baby's favorite. A clean up bubble bath! This allows baby to get scrubbed up after making a mess and they love to splash in the bubbles. This part always get the best smiles! Generally we shoot these in the "birthday suit", we just add a bit of bubbles to cover the top of the water. Baby is also able to wear a little top or bathing suit if requested.

The best part for parents: we take care of the cleanup in the studio. And if there is any cake left over, you get to take it with you!

ALL INCLUSIVE! I provide your cake, set and outfit. All you have to do is show up!

Family Portraits

USD $350 - USD $650

About This Service
Your legacy. Photographs, like memories and stories, are part of our legacy. We hold them close, we pass them down. These heirlooms provide a visual expression of moments. They transcribe the simple and sometimes forgotten details of the people, places and things we love. We use photographs to share with others; those who were not there and those generations from now.

Whether you have a family photography session annually or once every couple of years, choosing to invest in your family portrait is important. Your family portraits bring your family together. Your family portraits bring joy. And, in hard times, your family portraits can bring comfort and healing.

The art of the printed portrait, the canvas over the fireplace, is not lost in this genearation of digital and social media. While sharing with family and friends across the country and around the world is wonderful, the permanent artwork in your everyday life brings joy. The simple act of having your families’ photographs hung in your home increases you child's self-esteem. Studies have shown that having your family photographed and having your loving portraits displayed prominently in your home sends the message that your family is important to one another. It shows that you value your time with and your love for one another.

Family portraits become family heirlooms. The products that you will recieve after your family portait session will be invaluable. We create beautiful, modern heirloom-quality artwork that you’ll have the pleasure of giving to your children one day.

Shelly was able to take on our last minute newborn session for us and I am absolutely amazed at her work. She was so incredibly patient with my baby and truly knew how to achieve the most beautiful poses. I am so thankful I have these professional photos to keep forever of our firstborn!
Upon meeting with Shelly for our less-than-2-week-old's portraits, we learned that she had just recently moved here, so we felt very fortunate to have been able to work with her. Shelly has both the art & science of photography down! And her ability to position our floppy newborn into such sweet poses was very impressive! We look forward to working with her as our baby girl hits other major milestones, too!
Shelly took the most gorgeous photos of our family in the sunflowers at Grinter Farm. She was professional and quick - exactly what our family needed! The images are absolutely stunning. We are so glad she was able to capture the moment perfectly!
