Don't Blink... | Tween Session Experience, Kansas City Family Photographer

Before you know it, she will want to ditch those overalls & braids and go for mascara and heels. The carefree days of running barefoot in the grass at the park will be behind her, as she asks you to take her shopping at the mall and stay close, but not too close. Those sweet little eyes will soon roll at your requests and she will crave independence and freedom. But not just yet...

For a little while still, she will be young. Lying outside on a park bench, she still looks at the clouds and sees teddy bears and turtles. Maybe even a unicorn or fairy...because they're real, you know. In just a couple of years, ten will become thirteen and then thirteen will become sixteen. The days of her innocent little smiles and daydreamy gazes are the here and now.

That's why this is the perfect time to give her the gift of a special day all to herself, to be the center of attention and model-for-a-day. Perhaps you might treat yourselves to breakfast, go for a walk or shopping, or maybe go out to lunch, then come to the Studio Loft for a special Tween Session. Not just for girls, either! Boys would love a day just for them. Bring a couple of changes of clothing, a small prop or two, and let me pamper your child and make them feel special. What's the bonus? They think it's all about them, when it's also for you, too. I will design a custom cover, photo book of your son or daughter using images you choose from their session, and they will get a Mobile App for their phones so they can show all their friends. The best part is the memory you and your child will have of the day spent together. What a treasure!

The Tween Session Experience is a premium customized session, which will take place either at the Studio Loft in Olathe, or a Kansas City area location of your choice. As mentioned above, in addition to the premium session, you will receive a 12x8 hardbound photo book with personalized photo cover and magazine-style pages, and your son or daughter will receive a custom Mobile App of their images for their phone. The session, the book, and the app have a value of over $670. These sessions are being offered for a limited time at an all-inclusive price of $399. This would make an amazing birthday gift idea, or simply "just because". Bring a friend and you each get $50 off.

How to book:

These sessions will only be offered until November 1, 2016. Session spaces are limited. To book your child's session, please call me at 913-219-3167 or email me at kelly@kellyalleyphotography.com and set up a complimentary consultation. This brief appointment will allow you, your child, and me to meet and get to know a little about one another. It's important that I get a feel for their personality and what styles they prefer, plus it gives you both a chance to look over the book, see the studio, and get an idea of what you will be receiving. I look so forward to meeting with you and your child, and giving them this little boost of self-esteem during such a tough stage. It will be loads of fun & an experience to remember!

Newborn Family Session | Kansas City Family Photography

I just love this family. We met for DeJa's maternity session and had a great time. We got some amazing photos, and I couldn't wait to meet their new baby. When their little boy was born, they came to the studio and we got some amazing shots of all of them...both lifestyle and some posed images of just their newborn son. Big sister jumped in for some eventually, and she's going to be an amazing sister to this lucky little one. I truly had a ball with them, and I hope to see a lot more of them in the future as their little family grows!


Grandparents' Day Event - Shawnee Mission Park, Shawnee Mission KS

Grandparents Day is coming up, Sunday September 13th.  It's a terrific day to honor the people in our lives who love us with a passion that many of them say is even stronger than parenthood. Grandparents Day is a day to let them know just how much they're treasured. Why not commemorate the day with a special photo session with their grandkids?

This year, Kelly Alley Photography is hosting a special Grandparents Day Session Event. On Sunday, September 13th, bring the grandparents and give them a special photo shoot in the park with their grandchildren.

The sessions will take place at Shawnee Mission Park, from 5:00pm - 7:00pm. The fee for this session is just $149 (plus tax), which includes two (2) free 8x10s and matching digital copies to share online. Approximately five images will be taken and fully edited, from which you will choose two favorite images for the 8x10s & digital copies (you may also choose to get both of one pose/image). You are free to select more poses and/or photos or products, if you like.

I will also select TWO lucky winners to receive this session and images free of charge. To enter yourself, or a family member or friend, "like" this post and comment on it and/or tag a friend you think might be interested. Also, please share the post to your page. The two winners will be selected randomly on Monday, September 7th and posted on the blog and Facebook page. You will want to "Like" and follow Kelly Alley Photography on Facebook, so that you don't miss the announcement!

To schedule now, call Kelly at 913-219-3167 and ask to book for the Grandparents Day Event. The $149 fee is due at time of booking, however should you be one of the lucky two chosen to receive the session free of charge, the fee will be fully reimbursed to you. Don't delay, the spots available will fill up fast! This is a great way to show those grandparents we adore so much just how much they're loved and appreciated. Plus, they'll have a blast having photos taken and making memories with their grandkids!

Maternity Photos - Shawnee, KS Maternity & Newborn Photography

Say hello to Travis and Cathy, and introducing "Baby H". Travis and Cathy have been awaiting the arrival of this little guy or gal for many months, and it's almost time! We headed out to Shawnee Mission Park in Lenexa, KS for sunset photos. It has been so hot during this wet and humid Kansas City summer that we finally got a nice, cool evening and a beautiful sunlit sky to work with.

I Still Do...

This weekend I had a very special photo shoot. This sweet couple has been married ten years! To commemorate the special anniversary, they wanted a session with their kids at Union Station in Kansas City. She even wore her wedding dress!

I loved every minute of photographing this family, and they did so well! Even the little ones were super patient. I think we all had fun!
