Modern Maternity Session

Momma messaged me on Instagram and said, I didn’t know I wanted maternity pictures until I saw yours!” Talk about a compliment! We got our schedules synced up with Amanda for hair and makeup and that’s all she wrote. She knew she wanted to wear the black bodysuit from the studio and had purchased a black dress to wear, but what happened when she was at the studio is when her dreams were full! Let me back up a little bit. When she came into the studio, she came in a t-shirt and shorts with her hair in a messy

As time went on, she regretted it more and more, then thought she was too old for them and thought she completely missed out. Luckily for her, she hadn’t missed out, but thankfully she didn’t wait any longer! We got her scheduled within the week, the day before she was due to go back to work from maternity leave. The colors mom chose was pink and green, so I

So, I’ll just get right to it and tell you how your session may go ( I say may, because I work around what the baby wants and is willing is to do.).

Hello! I’m Shannon, the gal behind Wood and Lace. I am a full time professional photographer. When I’m not behind the camera, I am editing, working on the back end (website, marketing, etc), taking new courses to continue to grow my craft, and then all of the mom things after work is over the day. They say if you do something you love that you will never work a day in your life… I beg to differ. When you love what you do, you will work harder than you ever have in your life. The only difference is that it will feel all of the hard work is worth it.
