As a boutique studio, your session is laid-back and you can show up knowing everything has been taken care of and is ready for you come session day. 

The studio has an array of gorgeous props and accessories for your newborn session so you don’t have to buy a thing. You will feel comfortable and look your best with expert posing (not to mention, just you being the bombshell you are). Want to borrow a dress? I got you there, too.

“If I could give Shannon 10 stars, I would! She is a true professional and a master at her craft. You can expect a fun and efficient photo session with her, as well as friendly coaching along the way (trust me…take her coaching notes)! My husband and I used her for our maternity pictures and with confidence can say we will be returning many more times.” —Diana

“We are so very thankful for finding you. My husband texted me from work today and said he saw the photos and started to cry. NOTHING makes him cry. Consider that a huge win! You are wonderful and we will definitely see you again in the future!” – Courtney

We cannot recommend Wood and Lace more. Shannon has quickly become our family photographer (after maternity and newborn) and with reason. Her talent is remarkable for finding great shots that turn out better than expected on “film”. She is a joy to work with and is excellent at directing while not being pushy. We can’t wait to work with her to capture our growing family again soon.” – Nick

Shannon is an internationally published and award winning photographer. She has been featured in several magazines, won artist of the year in several categories throughout the years, and in 2022 won Best Newborn Photographer of the Year internationally.
