The Kansas City Newborn Photography Experience

Capturing what it feels like to be a new mom

The Newborn Experience

"I have never in my life had photos done that capture everything I have ever wished for. Renee...I am so overwhelmed with gratitude and love. Thank you."

Hello there, lovely mama-to-be!
It's so nice to meet you!!

You're eager to bring your baby into the world. So eager! You know you want to capture those early weeks before your newborn isn't able to fit in your arms quite the same way.

You also know that cell phone snap shots will not adequately document these fleeting moments the way professional images will.

You want to remember the moments as a new mother snuggled with your baby, running your fingers through their soft, new hair, kissing them on the forehead, watching your little one while they yawn and stretch. Their new baby smell lingers around you.

All of your love is tucked right there in your arms. The connection you feel for them at this very moment is exactly what you want to remember.

"Renee has been amazing to work with. She is so personable, sweet and obviously has the patience of a saint. She took the time to get some great photos and has gone above and beyond to make sure we loved everything. I highly recommend her!!"

Kansas City Newborn Photographer


Why would I want a newborn session in my home?

01. You just had a baby! Stay in the comfort, safety and warmth of your home.

02. Our homes change over the years, whether through decor or moving, in-home photography allows you to capture those memories of your home and your family in it.

03. It’s unique to you! You’ve spent days designing the perfect nursery and decorating your home to perfection – even if it doesn’t feel perfect every day – and making it YOURS.

04. And most importantly, your children will love looking back at their newborn images one day and remembering what their childhood looked like. What it felt like. And all of the love that filled your home throughout the years.



Where do you want your images to live?
Celebrate your growing family every day
Imagine snuggling up on the couch with your child, telling them about the day they were born, all while flipping through the pages of their album. What a special moment! A photography session is more than just pretty pictures, it's doing something special with those images so the memories can be relived over and over and passed on for generations.

Our most cherished possessions are those that come from meaningful, memorable moments.

Scroll through below for answers to the most frequently asked questions

01. What can we expect at our newborn photography session?

I'd like to know more

Lifestyle newborn sessions typically last about 1-2 hours. I get the entire family involved in the session and I photograph the very best moments between you and your new baby.

I also love to capture a few images of your family doing everyday things. Does daddy read to the baby or all the kids? Do you want to capture baby's first bath? These candid moments always mean a lot to new moms.

While I come with a plan, I will follow your baby's cues and work until I get all the images I need for a gorgeous gallery and I get all of the images that mean the most to you.

02. I want to include a family heirloom or blanket that my mom made for the baby into the session

Can we work it in?

Absolutely!! I would love to fit in your special items!

That is really what lifestyle sessions are all about, capturing what is most important to you, in your home, with all the people that mean the most to you.

03. When do I get to see my final images?

I can't wait!!

Me either!! The big reveal is the very best part! About two weeks after your session, I will come back to your home for your ordering appointment and present your gallery of images to you. You then get to decide which photographs you would like on your walls, in your album or in your beautiful glass image box.

I'll even have a special tool on hand to show you exactly what your images will look like on your walls!

04. Do you offer maternity, baby milestone or fresh 48 hospital photography sessions?

I'd like to add on a session!

I absolutely do! I offer these sessions as add-ons for my newborn families. I love capturing you from bump through your baby's first year and I have exclusive products only available to my Watch Me Grow families.

Please inquire for more information on Watch Me Grow Packages.
