Hi friends! I’m Kira, a Kansas City photographer specializing in weddings, families, & personal brand photos for entrepreneurs. I know that planning photo sessions can feel daunting and stressful, but I’m here to make the process a little more manageable! Fall is one of the most popular times of year particularly for family photos, so I wanted to open my calendar to share with you sooner rather than later so you can be sure to reserve a spot and have plenty of time to plan.
Not sure what to wear? I can help.
Not sure where to go for your location? Not to worry; I have a whole web page of location inspiration in the Kansas City area that I’ll share with you upon booking.
Let’s make some memories!
“We absolutely love using Kira for our family photography! She is so easy to work with, her pricing is great and she sends over the photos in a very timely matter - no long waiting!”
“Kira has an amazing ability to catch the perfect smile or look. She is extremely easy to work with, very fast with her responses and I received my gallery much quicker than I ever would have thought.”
Originally born and raised in Colorado Springs, I’ve been living in Kansas City with my husband and adorable puppy since 2014. I’m a little quirky, spunky, and try to make every photo experience FUN and memorable! I’m crazy passionate about what I do and am so grateful for the relationships this beautiful industry has allowed me to create.
I believe every family deserves bright, timeless photos of the different seasons in their lives together and I love every opportunity to capture them! I adore children and never mind the chaos that undoubtedly comes with short attention spans during a photo session. Interacting with them is one of my favorite parts of our time together!
My mantra is Create, Connect, Captivate: connecting family, friends, generations, and strangers by creating captivating imagery that will remind you of these moments in your story for years to come.
✔️ You don’t want to wait until it’s freezing outside to remember that you need updated photos
✔️ You want someone to help you with the details like location & what to wear
✔️ You want to capture this season in your kiddos’ lives, but don’t have enough experience with a camera to make it happen yourself (or would just rather not deal with it)
✔️ You want to capture the brilliant Fall colors before winter arrives
✔️ You want to work with someone who is communicative, reliable, and provides speedy photo delivery (within one week for all sessions!)
✔️ You’re determined to send out a good Christmas card this year that accurately reflects your beautiful family and the stage you’re in
✔️ You’ve put off a photo session for too long and just need an easy way to MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Mini Session: perfect if you only need a few updated images (ex. for your Christmas card). These are 15-20 minute sessions offered only on Friday, October 25 & Saturday, October 26 at Loose Park (5110 Wornall Rd, Kansas City, MO 64112), limited spots available. You will receive a minimum of 15 edited, digital images with high quality print options (although you will have printing rights as well in case you choose to print elsewhere). Investment: $175 + Tax.
Basic Session: the most common family photo session I offer. These are geared towards families of 5 or less and consist of a 40-minute session, 1 outfit, and 1 location of your choice in the KC metro area. You will receive a minimum of 30 edited, digital images with high quality print options (although you will have printing rights as well in case you choose to print elsewhere). Investment: $300+ Tax.
Premium Session: what I suggest for families of 6+ people (additional fee for over 10 people). This type of session is up to 1.25 hours with up to 2 locations in the KC metro area (within about 20 minutes of each other). This is also the type of session I suggest for senior photos if you are wanting to get those taken care of towards the beginning of the school year. You will receive a minimum of 60 edited, digital images with high quality print options (although you will have printing rights as well in case you choose to print elsewhere). Investment: $400+ Tax.
Booking: For each session type, a $100 deposit is due upon booking to hold it on my calendar, the remainder is due 2 days before the session. The deposit is fully refundable up to 3 weeks before your session date should you need to cancel for any reason, after that is is non-refundable.
Next Steps: As soon as you choose your date/time and pay your deposit for Basic & Premium sessions, you’ll receive access to my location inspiration page and outfit planning tips. For Mini sessions, you will just receive the outfit planning tips since the location is already set.
Weather: I will keep an eye on the weather during the week before your session and check in a couple days beforehand if it looks like we may need to come up with a backup plan. The final call will be made the evening before your session since I don’t trust the forecast until we get very close since it changes so quickly here in KC. We will only reschedule for rain or storms; no reschedules due to cloudy days (I promise I can still capture bright photos for you when it’s cloudy out!).
Image Delivery: Your images will be delivered in an online gallery. You can download all of them from there, share the link with friends & family, and order high quality prints if desired. No matter which type of session you select, your gallery will be delivered within ONE WEEK of your session date!!

“We loved our spring mini session with Kira! She is extremely talented, and we loved our photos! She was so accommodating to reschedule our session when the weather forecast was expected to be bad, and she put us at ease throughout the session. I felt like we received a great value, and I really appreciate getting a print release with the photos so it is easy to do whatever you would like with them at any point in the future. I would highly recommend Kira for any photography needs, and we look forward to her taking more pictures of our family in the years to come!”
“Not only were the pictures exceptional, Kira’s turn time was unbelievably fast! It was such a sweet surprise to get my pictures back on Mother’s Day, just one day after the shoot. Kira is talented, provides exceptional customer service, and is super sweet!”
