Take a timeout from your busy life. Be together. Be still. Be YOU.

Hello and welcome to Be You Photography. This is a place where pictures are more than a beautiful portrait hanging on your wall. It is an experience where families come together, connect, laugh and sometimes cry. We celebrate individuals, and we commemorate family relationships. There are no fancy props, no over-dramatic editing, and no use of the word “cheese” (unless you plan on bringing snacks). It’s just YOU, in your element, guided through moments together while we capture your portraits with experience, style and high-end quality.

Be You Photography is proud to serve over 1800 families since opening. We are based in the midwest with our principal location in Kansas City. We also have the pleasure of working in destination locations.



Experience.  Style.  Quality.

Be You Photography was created in 2005 by owner/artist, Becca Pento. She is known for her fresh and timeless style that is delivered with a gracious spirit and kind personality. Her background of business consulting and engineering, mixed with fine arts and professional dance, bring a multifaceted skillset to the business. She has differentiated herself in the community by providing a refreshing experience, vibrant style, and high-end quality to each photo session. When not capturing portraits, you will find Becca cheering on her family, leading fitness for adults and youth, instructing dance and cheer, cycling and exploring, or volunteering at church.

BE YOU has grown to be an elite family portrait provider in the midwest. BE YOU specializes in family photography that includes maternity, family of all stages, high school seniors and family groupings. Our corporate services include headshots, product shoots, and lifestyle imagery. Please complete our contact form to receive detailed information about our services. As we excel and continue growth in photo sessions with families and individuals in a more private setting, we do not offer special events and wedding photography at this time.

BE YOU is proud to sponsor and support the American Diabetes Association. Ask about our Headshots for a Cure fundraiser or our Tour de Cure team.
