About Helen

nice to meet you

I’m Helen Ransom, and am the owner and photographer behind Faces You Love Photography, a photography studio in Kansas City.

I was born and raised on the coast of Maine, but my husband and I have called Kansas City “home” for over 12 years now. Our life became chaotic in 2007, with the birth of our identical triplet boys.

Don’t worry – I’ll give you a second to process that info…

Then, life became more chaotic with the addition of their little sister in January 2011.

Then, because that wasn’t enough chaos for me, I decided to open up Faces You Love in June 2011, when my daughter was just 6 months old. I’ve had studio space in Waldo since 2014.

Whew! Needless to say – if you call me on the phone, and my kids are home, you’ll hear a whole lot of background noise (which might be why you’ll usually converse with me via e-mail). You know what though? My chaotic life also means your chaotic life won’t phase me, and I’ll get a kick out of photographing it!

I’ve also got just a tiny bit of baby soothing experience under my belt – trying to calm 3 fussy babies all at once will do that to a girl! I’ve had a number of clients joke (I think they were joking?) that they were going to call me at 3am, and have me come soothe their newborn back to sleep for them.

I’d love to photograph your bitty baby and then follow your family as it grows and changes over the years! Be sure to check out my portfolio, and then hop on over here to request more booking information.
