Baby Ava | Newborn Photography Session | Baby Photographer Kansas City

Baby Ava

Look at this little doll baby right here!!! Such perfection. Little Miss Ava was an absolute dream for her newborn photography session in my Kansas City studio! She slept peacefully through every setup that I had planned for her1 She was a total dream baby! Ava's momma likes the color purple so I knew that I wanted to throw some purple into Ava's session. I do have to add that I absolutely adore the color blue on little girls, and when done right it looks gorgeous! Who says girls can't wear blue, right!!!!!

I would also love to mention that Ava's big brother was such a stud and the best helper for Ava's newborn session! He was so very smitten with her and it was absolutely adorable!!!

I was so incredibly grateful to meet beautiful Ava and her entire family, even her Nona was there. It is always such a pleasure to capture these fleeting moments for families!

Sofia | One Year Cake Smash | Kansas City | Cake Smash Baby Photographer

Little Miss Sofia


Oh my goodness, I just couldn't wait to share this session with ya'll! This little one I had the pleasure of capturing her as a newborn, and when her momma contacted me to schedule her one year portraits and cake smash session I was beyond thrilled!!!

Little Miss Sofia is by far the happiest baby I have ever photographed! She was thrilled with my little bed prop, and even more thrilled with the totally delicious cake smash setup! There wasn't a time in the session I didn't see her smiling... except for when she got all serious on me eating that yummy cake!!!! I could seriously go on and on for days about little miss Sofia!

Sofia is one and can you believe all of that beautiful hair, absolutely gorgeous I tell ya! Her eye lashes were also gorgeous. When I captured her as a newborn I got a couple of shots called macro shots (super duper close up images) of her eye lashes and they were the longest eyelashes I had ever seen on a newborn, and she still has those super long and full eyelashes to this day!

Each cake smash session with Captured Moments By Melissa starts with a very simple one year portrait setup, followed by the fun cake smash, and finally a little bath tub setup!!!

Baby Sofia | Newborn Photography Session | Newborn Photographer | Liberty Missouri

Oh baby Sofia how absolutely gorgeous you are!! This little girl totally stole my heart!!

Baby Sofia was my first newborn session after my fabulous 1:1 mentoring with the wonderful Nicole Smith Photography! (A blog post about that wonderful experience will be posted at a later date!!) To say that i was in love with how this session turned out would be an understatement!

I've been called the baby whisperer by my clients simply because of my ability to gently calm and soothe unhappy babies! However,sometimes when my little lovies have upset tummies there is absolutely no baby whispering going on in my studio because some little lovies just are not having it! Sometimes in cases like baby Sofia we have to reschedule the session. I couldn't imagine letting people pose me and move me around while my tummy hurt really bad,and in my studio baby's well being and safety are my number 1 concern!

This is exactly how little Miss Sofia's session was.Poor baby had some tummy troubles so we ended up rescheduling! So thankful for her sweet momma for bringing her back for another visit with me!

Before her second session i sent Sofia's momma my newborn session prep list and breastfeeding nutrition guide,this is something i send to all of my newborn session clients to better prepare them for the session,it also helps ensure a successful session!

When these two guides are followed to a T the sessions usually go pretty amazing,i can't stress enough how important these two guides are for the success of the session!

The second session with Miss Sofia was an absolute dream and i could not have asked for a better baby,she was absolutely perfect and her images tuned out beautifully!

Here are just a few of my favorites!

Baby Gwen | Newborn | Baby Photographer | Kansas City

Oh how i love my job!!! Of course it's not as easy as it looks,but the end reward is incredible!! Being able to capture these little beings in their first few days o flife brings pure joy to my heart! Knowing that parents are going to treasure these images forever makes everything worth it!

Meet baby Gwen, how gorgeous is this squishy baby girl! Not only is she beautiful but she is a very determined little girl. She wanted nothing to do with my posing shenanigans! Luckily i was able to convince her to give me a couple of poses! She did super great when it came time to pose with her adorable big brother Gavin!

Baby Tave | Newborn Photographer Kansas City Missouri

Baby Tave,how awesome is his name right!!! He was such a little sweetheart for his session! He made for the sutest cowboy that i think i have ever seen!!!! I was so glad when his sweet parents said that they wanted some family images. I can't stress enough how incredibly important it is to be in these photographs with your babies! As a Momma myself i really really wish that i would have had images like these when my loves were this little. Being the photographer, i'm always behind the camera and rarely in front o fit :( , So to my fellow mommas & daddies i urge you to take part in your little ones newborn session. our babies grow so incredibly fast,you won't be able to hold them in your arms like this for very long, and by the time you realize that they're already grown!

As always, if you'd like to see more lovies like Tave please go here!

If you would like to go ahead and book your little ones newborn session and make me your newborn photographer of Kansas City, please head over here!

Thanks so much to the Mommies and Daddies that entrust me with their precious babes i value each and every one of you!!!
