Gorgeous Momma To Be | Beautiful Lee’s Summit Park

Hello everyone! It’s been pretty quiet on the blog lately. Sorry about that, Covid-19 has really been throwing a wrench in things if you haven’t noticed… But, if I am being REAL honest, I don’t blog as much as I should. BUT WHEN I DO… It’s because I had a session that steals my heart.

This adorable couple patiently waited for me to capture their pregnancy. We had originally scheduled the maternity photos for indoors, but with Covid, I’m limiting the studio sessions to newborns only. These sweet parents gladly agreed to move their session outside and I’m very glad it worked out like this because just look at these images! It was a beautiful session and it’s very clear that mom and dad are deeply in love and excited to be parents. Momma to be really wanted a twirl photo with the proud dad! It only took 20 tries, but the outtakes are so adorable and special that I wanted to share lots of them! THIS is what I aim for… Capturing these precious moments and emotions is what makes me love my job.

Looking forward to meeting that sweet baby and working with you guys again! Thank you for choosing me to capture your pregnancy and maternity session.

Beautiful Wooded Maternity Session | Lee’s Summit Maternity Photographer

This beautiful momma to be totally nailed her outfits, as always! She is gorgeous inside and out! I’ve been photographing her daughter since her first birthday and every year since! I’m very excited to be capturing these special moments with the newest little bean on the way! For this maternity session, momma wanted Burr Oak Nature Center. I love the trees at Burr Oak! You totally feel like you’re no longer in Missouri! I’m very pleased with her photos and I am just in love with that mustard dress! Also, lets not forget to mention her hair!!!!! She always has the most long and luxurious wavy locks! Thank you guys for always being so loyal to me! I am grateful to be your Lee’s Summit family photographer.

Lifestyle in-home newborn session | Kansas City Newborn Photographer

LOVEEEE everything about this sweet lifestyle in-home newborn session! Their bay window in the living room was perfect for these timeless images! The pure joy on these new parent’s faces is priceless! This is what I love most about capturing newborns… Seeing the raw emotions from mom & dad. It brings back such great memories for myself of when I became a mom! Here are some of my favorites from this session! In-home lifestyle sessions have become A new fav for me! They are much different than a “posed” studio newborn session. I’m hoping to add a lot more of these in the upcoming year! But for now, enjoy little miss Elenor and her adorable family! Thank you for choosing Aly Marie Photography as your Kansas City Newborn Lifestyle Photographer.

Rucereto Family | Kansas City River Market Fall Session

This adorable family has been booking sessions with me for the last 7 years! This marks their 8th session with me! I feel so fortunate to have families that continue to come back to me every year! My favorite families are repeats. Everyone feels so comfortable together and it truly helps to make the session go smoother. I look forward to seeing Emily every year and I am pretty sure she looks forward to seeing me too! 🙂 This year, I suggested the River Market location and I’m so glad that the Rucereto family tried something new with me! I LOVE how the photos turned out. We also tried something new at this family session. I had Ryan Paxton, a videographer and friend of mine, come take video! Here is the link if you’d like to check out the video! Here are some of my favorite captures from this beautiful Kansas City River Market family session.

Baby Boy In Neutral Colors | Lee’s Summit Newborn Photographer

I love this gallery so much because of the simple neutral colors! Soft & neutral is kind of my jam! This sweet boy slept so well during his session with me! Big brother was so proud and was a great listener! Grandma also came along for this session and was basically my assistant for the entire shoot! Love when grandmas come because it’s so precious to see all of the generations together.
Thank you for choosing Aly Marie Photography at Third Street Studio to be your Lee’s Summit Newborn Photographer.

We Are Rebranding!!!!

Hello everyone! Billy Owen and I have some exciting news to share!  After lots of consideration and many discussions with my family, friends and colleagues, Aly Marie Photography has decided to rebrand into Third Street Studio! EEEKKKKK!  We are very excited and fortunate to be able to take these next steps.  Our vision and goal as Third Street Studio is to be able to grow & expand as a business so that we can better serve our clients in every stage of life.

As many of you know, my husband’s specialty is graphic design & video. I love so very much that our career paths overlap and I am really proud to announce that Billy will be helping Third Street Studio with all of our rebranding, marketing & design related projects.  We are very eager to take this journey together and be a bigger part of the growing Downtown Lee’s Summit community.

In the coming weeks you will begin to see a new look on our website. Www.thirdstreetstudiokc.com is currently under construction, however it is active and will redirect you to Aly Marie Photography’s website while we continue to work on our rebranding and construction of the new website. We have decided to keep colors the same in hopes that this transition will be smooth and less confusing.  Eventually, our social media pages will take the new name of Third Street Studio so please be aware of this change.  Our studio location, in downtown Lee’s Summit, will remain the same and we will have a new sign from Fossil Forge installed the week of September 22nd.  We are really excited to see the new look of the studio and encourage our friends, family and clients to come see us soon!

Our specialized niche will still remain with maternity, newborns and lifestyle family sessions.  We also offer first year baby plans & packages, child portraits, senior sessions, themed mini sessions, large group family sessions, pet photography and professional business headshots.

The past 10 years has been monumental and the growth of Aly Marie Photography has been incredible. I feel very luck to have met the families that I have.  We are really fortunate to have repetitive & loyal clients that continue to choose me as their family photographer!  I have not only found a career that I am sincere about, but I am continuing to meet amazing families and develop relationships with people along the way.  Thank you to all of my clients for being so supportive and special to me.  Also, a big thank you to my husband and momma for always pushing me to be the better version of myself.  And last but not least, a REAL BIG THANK YOU, to my dear friend and fellow photographer Janean Gray, for never giving up on me and reminding me that I can do great things with my business!!  I am so grateful.

So here’s to rebranding… during the busiest season of every photographer ever! LOL!

WE. GOT. THIS.

We look forward to continue working with you!

Alyisa & Billy Owen

Lees Summit Newborn Photographer | Spring Baby Girl

I’ve worked with this amazing family several times. I first met them when Shana was expecting Austin and now they’ve added a sweet baby girl to their bunch! I couldn’t be more happy for them! Audrey slept so well during her session. I am in love with her eye lashes! They are so long and full already! JEALLOUUSSS! Big brother Austin did well too! He warmed right up and we found ways to get him close to sister and smile for me! Grandma also got to be in a couple photos! I love when mom’s bring their mom!
Thank you guys for choosing me to be your lees summit newborn photographer! It was a pleasure working with your family again and I look forward to capturing Audrey over the first year! Here are a few favorites from the session.

Spring Family Session | Lees Summit Family Lifestyle Photographer

I’m so in love with this sweet family’s gallery! It was a fun and playful session. I’ve been photographing this family for the past couple years and I love watching them grow! When mom told me she wanted a field look in her photos, I new just the perfect location! I was not expecting to be able to use the field with the yellow wild flowers because usually the lighting is very direct. However, we had an overcast day so it turned out great! Thank you guys for being such great and loyal clients and choosing Aly Marie Photography as your Lee’s Summit family photographer! XoXo.

Blended Families DO work! | Kansas City Family Photographer

When my son’s stepmother asked if I was available to do newborn photos of her new baby Colton, I was honored to do so. I was thrilled and really excited to be able to capture such a memorable time for her, Dustin & Caleb.

After posting some sneak peeks on social media, I received a few texts commending my attitude towards accepting the job. 🤔 Of course I’m going to say yes! I specialize in NEWBORNS… I have spent many years practicing the art of newborn posing. I consider Sara more than just my son’s stepmother. I consider her a friend and being able to capture this pure time for her was a very humbling experience. We’ve had countless talks about our Caleb, life and motherhood and this woman is the OTHER mother when I am not around. Does co-parenting suck? Yes, of course and I’m sure that many other separated families can relate to this. However we make the very best of it! Sara and I have both put in the effort to understand one another as mothers and I consider us a wonderful team. We’ve worked hard to build a trusting relationship. It now comes so easy for her and I. For this, I am very grateful. Grateful to have added to my tribe of women because… have you met my child? It takes quite the village to raise such a strong willed and stubborn child! 😉

Blended families DO work. They CAN work. I am glad and proud that all four of us parents have put in this work. And I must say, we are DAMN good at it! I truly hope that our blended family can be an inspiration to other blended families out there.

Sara, if you’re reading this, keep up the great work! I’m so happy for you that you’re able to experience motherhood from day one! The birth of a child is such a magical time for us moms and you are doing awesome! Thank you for including me and allowing me to do Colton’s newborn photos. He is so sweet and slept so peacefully for me! I loved being able to see Caleb interact with Colton and I also really enjoyed meeting your mom at our session. She was wonderful with Mr. Impatient and was very helpful. Thank you for giving Caleb a sibling and congratulations to you guys! I call dibs on some babysitting! 😉

Here are some favorites from Colton’s session!

Landon | Sweet Spring Boy

This gallery was too sweet to pass on blogging! Landon is full of fun expressions and clearly is a momma’s boy! Big sister was being ornery and we didn’t think we captured a good family photo, but as you can see, we nailed it! Love this sweet family so much! I have been seeing them since Kenzie (big sister) was in mom’s belly! I see them a few times a year and I really love being able to capture their memories! Mom did such a good job with outfits. Happy Spring everyone!
