Child and Big Kid Photography Sessions

The Experience: It seems like every busy family is the same: We go from taking TONS of photographs of our new baby and capturing every milestone during those first few years, then life intervenes and our professional photographs lapse through those middle childhood years until it’s time for high school senior pictures.

I’m a firm believer in making the time at least once a year to professionally photograph what your school-age little guy or girl is into at this particular stage. Celebrate the gangly legs, the lost teeth, the braces, the tomboys, the wild child and everything in between because it goes by in a blink. Before you know it, you’ll be looking back and wishing for that smelly-sweaty-been-playing-outside-all-day little kid smell, those shy gazes, goofy grins and the silly knock knock jokes. Trust me!

From what to wear to session location, I guide you and style your session every step of the way ensuring artful, playful, colorful images that showcase your big kid’s personality. Depending on the session vision, time of year, weather and age of the child, our session can take place at one of a variety of locations, including my studio, a field, a park/green space, downtown Kansas City/urban environment, a public building, your home and more. Sessions can be crafted around a favorite toy, favorite color, an outfit, hobby, activity or milestone – I love a creative challenge!

Most custom child photography sessions feature an average of 30-40 individually hand-processed and artistically enhanced images to order from as well as a private, online gallery and/or a personalized, in-studio ordering appointment.
