Marxman Family

“Kaitlyn was super easy to work with from planning to scheduling our session. Kaitlyn was super patient and knew how to get good pictures from my 2-year-old. Our session was a lot of fun and it was like having a close friend capture our family, even though we had just met!! The photos we received were top notch!! When I showed my husband, his response was, “same time next year?” Kaitlyn was awesome! And we can’t wait to work with her again!”

Why is photography worth the investment?

Pass down your memories:

Someday, when your children are grown and having families of their own, how happy will you be to show them photos of when they were only a newborn! Or when they skipped rocks at the lake alongside their dad. Photographs are your physical opportunity to pass down visual memories! They provide a tangible link to the past and allow your children and grandchildren to connect with their family history and heritage.

Deepen your Emotional Connection:

People are all drawn to visual images that are beautiful, especially those which involve you or people you love! Photos have a unique ability to evoke emotions from a specific moment in your life. Whether it's your family taking in all the tiny features of your newborn baby, or a when you were a young couple watching the sunset together, looking at photos can trigger feelings of joy, nostalgia, and love.

Enhance your memories:

As sad as it may be, your memory is fallible, and over time, you will forget details of past events. As hard as you may try to remember how your newborn fit in your arms, or the silly expressions on your toddlers faces your memory can only remember so much. Having photos of these specific things act as visual cues and can help jog your memory and provide a more accurate recollection of the past.

Document your Growth:

Have you ever taken a photo of yourself, or your child, in a specific place and then recreated that photo several months or a year later? Just to see what and how much has changed? Photography is one of the best ways to document the growth and development of your children and families over time. Watching your children grow, witnessing physical changes, and tracking personal achievements become more meaningful when you're able to visually see the change in your photos!

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based in the Kansas City area! I am also oftentimes in the Wichita, KS area and am happy to meet if our calendars line up. All other travel inquires, feel free to email me. I do have an extended travel fee but am always down for a new adventure!

Can I choose where I would like my photos taken?

It totally depends on the distance from my current location. If you have a spot in mind within a 30 minute drive of my house...LET'S GO! If it's further than 30 minutes, no worries! I'm still down to travel! There will simply be an added travel fee. I'm always down to explore new spots! If you don't have any ideas, leave it up to me! I like to scout out the perfect places and will be sure your pictures are breathtaking.

Are there any additional fees?

Studio Rental
If you would like your session to take place at a studio in the Kansas City Metro Area, the studio rental fee will be added to your session fee in order to cover the rental cost. The price will vary dependent on the specific studio and their personalized rental fees.

Additional Retouching - $10 per image
All images included in your gallery will be edited based on my current editing style. If you desire more specific edits (e.g. background changes, additional skin/hair touch-ups) I will require an additional fee of $10 per image.

Rush Gallery Delivery - $50
If you are in a hurry and need your photos earlier than my general turnaround timeframe there will be an additional "Rush Gallery" fee.

What type of sessions fall under your packages?

Lifestyle Newborns: In-Home or Outdoor Newborn sessions. We can also use this Package for a general Family Session with littles who may need some time to warm up! Or Families who want multiple locations.

Our Story: This is great for your perfect Family or Couples Session! It can be used for a Pregnancy Announcement and/or Maternity Session as well!

Extended Family Session: When the whole gang is back together!

When will we get our photos?

I will send you a few "sneak peek" images within the first 48hrs of your session! I know how eager you can be to see what your photos will look like. ;)

You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within a maximum of 2 weeks (typically less depending on the season I photograph your story). I'll be sure to give you a more specific timeline after your session!
In your personal Client Gallery you can download all the photos, choose your favorites, and share them with who you please!

How many pictures will we receive?

This depends on the package you purchase. The number included in the packages above are the photos included in your Session Fee. You will be able to choose to purchase your full gallery if you decide there are more photos you cannot live without!


A 50% non-refundable retainer is required to confirm every session. The remainder of your invoice is due the day before your scheduled session.

I totally understand…life is WILD. That’s also why it’s BEAUTIFUL! If something comes up and you need to cancel, that’s totally fine. Just give me a heads up! Please let me know at least 24hrs prior to your scheduled session so that I can plan accordingly. Hopefully we can reschedule for a time that works best for you. If not, no hard feelings!


Like I said, life is WILD and unpredictable. That’s why it’s beautiful and fun! If something unexpected comes up and you need to reschedule, no problem!

Your initial 50% non-refundable retainer is transferable due to rescheduling as long as you have given me a 24hr notice of the initial booked session.

The rescheduled session must take place within 30 days of the original scheduled shoot date. Once 30 days have passed your session will be considered permanently canceled.

Sessions can only be rescheduled once to be fair for the availability of other clients. Please check your calendar closely and pick a date you can guarantee will work with your schedule!

Late Arrival/No Show

Be sure to plan ahead & accordingly! I know what it’s like getting small children dressed and out the door on time…it’s no easy feat. However, your scheduled shoot time is YOUR time!

If you are 10 minutes late to your 60 minute session…you will only have 50 minutes of shoot time.

If you are 20 minutes late, your session will be considered canceled and your retainer will be forfeited.

Time is precious! Let’s not waste it, friends!

How do I pay you?

Fantastic question!!! Thanks for asking. ;)
I will email you your invoice breaking down your full session price.
Payments can be made directly from that invoice via Credit Card or a Direct Bank Payment. You can also bring cash to your session to cover the remaining expense.
Online payments are preferred.
