Abundant Moments is happy to come to your home or the locale of your choice for special occasions or for a private photo session. This is especially convenient for new parents or large families.
We’ve gone on location to take extraordinary pictures of babies as new as just a few hours old, and for families as large as 56 people!
We call your basic fee a Commissioning Fee because we are artists first and photographers second. A sitting fee covers only the time during which the pictures are taken, which is often limited at other studios. When you pay Abundant Moments, you are paying not only for the time spent taking your precious pictures, but also the time spent cropping and color correcting each individual image. More importantly it includes the time taken to design unique and beautiful collages, storybooks, and other distinctive items for you to treasure or give to loved ones. Basic retouching is also included in this fee.
We support online viewing for special events such as weddings, family reunions, and school events. This enables out-of-town family and friends to purchase the images on their own.

This session has no specific time or image limit and includes various sets and areas. These sessions usually run between 45-60 minutes, but can span up to 90 minutes depending on the child/family.
Mileage fees are charged after 35 miles from the Home Studio (currently 90 cents per mile, one direction and subject to change). These fees are regardless of how many people you have. We are paid for our time, not the number of poses, so make a list and be ready – you have from 30 – 90 minutes depending on the package chosen.
Additional time can be scheduled at the time your initial appointment is made. The rate for additional time is $50 per half hour increment, or portion thereof. Sorry, we will be unable to accommodate request for additional time not originally scheduled, so that we may keep our commitments to other clients. Generally, on-location sessions are handled by two photographers to ensure total coverage. Again, this depends on the package. See package details below for the session that fits you the best.
Additional retouching costs vary, based on time spent. At this time we are not charging any additional for basic retouching – i.e., acne, eye bags, slight imperfections. Deluxe retouching is handled on a case by case basis and includes things such as removal or replacement of individuals, head swaps, background changes, etc.
The service at Abundant Moments also includes a consultation to decide what sizes and styles of frames would best fit your needs and decor. Bring us a digital image of your walls or area, and we will help you decide what needs to be created for that space.

Life’s Moments Senior Sessions – high school seniors and more
These sessions are $225 and are exclusively for our seniors. Please refer to our senior site for details. Our senior sessions are the only ones in the Kansas city area which include unlimited sessions on multiple days for one low price.
Most studios don’t even include this service because of the time involved or fear of lost revenue. Because each session is your precious moment in time, we encourage you to avail yourself of this service. Come in for our free In-Studio Consult or use our free phone consultation to discuss what to wear and what you are looking for.
We want your pictures to reflect who you truly are. Bring pictures of your family, a scrapbook, photo ideas, lists of things you want… anything that helps us know more about you and who you are. The more we know about your life, your love, your passion – the better the memories we can provide.

First Moments Plan for newborns
Many new parents are taking advantage of our First Moments Plan. Read more about this fabulous plan which gives you free session fees and significant discounts for the whole first year of your child’s life.
In addition to the First Moments Plan, we offer an additional special for newborns. For the same On-Location Commissioning Fee, we come to the hospital for the first images, then you finish your session at the studio within two weeks of the baby’s birth. This way we capture those precious first moments and you still receive the benefit of our extraordinary newborn studio shots. Many parents then choose to have us design and create their announcements from that hospital session and pick them up, envelopes and all, when they come in for their studio portion of the session.
