Maternity Photographer

Hi there! I'm Joyce!


Kansas City newborn photographer and owner of Bundles Photography. I also specialize in maternity photography as well. I take tremendous pride in being one of very few newborn photographers within the Kansas City metropolitan area that exclusively delivers studio-like newborn photos all within the comfort of your own home. Take a peek around and stay awhile! When you're ready, I'd love to chat more about capturing these special moments of your life.


More About Me...


Joyce Thao owner of Bundles Photography

"Sometimes the smallest things take up the MOST room in your heart."

-Winnie the Pooh

“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”


– Anne Christian Buchanan

Why choose Bundles Photography

as your kansas city newborn photographer?

1. We Can Come to you!


That’s right! If you choose to have an in-home session, I will bring all backdrops, props, blankets, studio lights, and other necessary gear to you! We all know that being a parent of a newborn takes tremendous work. You are often up at wee hours of the night constantly feeding, soothing, cleaning, and cluster-napping when you can. Simply put... you are exhausted! It is a lot of work preparing your newborn and other young children for a photoshoot, then hauling them into the car, unloading, praying your other children won’t get antsy during the 2-3 hour newborn session, hauling them back into the car, and finally going home after a long day! You don’t have to worry about any of that with Bundles Photography! All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the few hours someone else is hanging out with your newborn! =)

2. Safety and Cleanliness



It is my goal to create beautiful images for you of your newborn, however, the safety of your newborn is of the utmost importance. I am always up to date on my vaccines, including the annual flu shot and COVID-19 vaccine. I take care to sanitize equipment surfaces and props as well as wash fabrics/outfits in gentle, hypo-allergenic detergent between every newborn session.

Client Testimonials


Joyce was very professional

throughout the shoot with my newborn. She was very accommodating and at no point, did I ever hear my baby fuss. She's quite the baby whisperer and the shoot was worth every shot. She captured some amazing photos that will last for years to come; paying attention to every detail. In fact, they are hanging in my dining room as a beautiful memoir. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for some quality photos. No regrets, especially when we start to come of an age when we will look back, Reminisce and "remember when.

When I was in search of a Newborn session, I was glad I met Joyce with Bundles photography. She did an amazing job on our newborn photos. I was blown away with her editing style, as our photos turned out SO beautiful! She is so friendly and even felt like she gave us extras as we asked for and I had more ideas in what we wanted for photos. She did not even hesitate at all and just went with everything we asked! Joyce was so sweet and I honestly felt like she was a friend that I had met for the first time. She made everyone very comfortable during our shoot and our photos were everything I wanted and more! Waiting and excited to meet her again for family session.

Words cannot express how wonderful Joyce was to work with and her skills just speaks for itself. Joyce made me feel like we've known each other for years. She is so kind and very professional. The day we took my maternity photos was sooo very cold, but she worked through it and the pictures turned out AMAZING! She was so helpful with suggesting location and my outfit. I could tell she was passionate about her work. She's was flexible and patience with me. Even with her busy schedule she had our pictures back to us within the week. I highly recommend Joyce, you will not be disappointed!
