Light and airy photographer in Kansas City, Brookside, Missouri

Hi, there!

I'm Meredith– a motherhood photographer based in Kansas City, Missouri, and I am so passionate about photographing mamas with their babies.

I've had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories involve using all of my grandpa's Polaroid film before the days of dropping off a disposable camera and waiting not-so-patiently to pick up the pictures at our local CVS. I purchased my first "fancy" camera in 2013, and my love for photography and teaching collided as I spent five years teaching high school English and advising the school's yearbook staff while earning my master's degree in scholastic journalism.

However, it wasn't until the birth of our daughter in 2019 that I truly became obsessed with freezing time. Hattie quickly taught me just how fleeting our moments together were, and for the first time in my life, I wanted time to stand still, and photography allowed me to do just that. The art of photography is truly a gift— one that I hope to share with you. 

As a motherhood photographer, my ultimate priority is to be a blessing to everyone that walks through my door by capturing the moments you'll hold close to your heart forever. Here, there is no stress in deciding what to wear or unrealistic expectations for children to behave perfectly. I believe there is beauty in simplicity, value quality over quantity, and I am dedicated to giving my clients an exceptional experience from beginning to end every single time.

My style is simple, pure, and timeless because your photographs should be legacy pieces passed down from generation to generation. It is important to me to create real relationships with my clients so I can best tell your story. My main focus is on the authentic connections you share with your loved ones which allows me to produce images that will remind you of the beauty and magic in your season of motherhood.   

If my images and style speak to you, I would love to hear from you and learn how I can best serve and document your precious family.



Connection and Community

Being a mama is my absolute favorite thing in the entire world, but sometimes it is also hard and messy and complicated and, at times, lonely, and no one really talks about that.

I created Maag & Co. as a way of connecting my clients and creating a community of support and friendship.

My Maag & Co. mamas will also have dibs on mini sessions and be the first to know about happenings around the studio!
