Morgantown Newborn Session

Your Studio Newborn Session You’ve waited so long for your precious baby and now they’ll be here before you know it. You want to remember those little fingers, their tiny nose, all of the beautiful features that will change ever so quickly. We hear all the time “It goes so fast”, but we really don’t understand that until we have our own children. Then, that first month passes and it’s time to pull out your phone for their one month documentation for social media. *Cue all the feelings* This is when it hits, hard. “They’ve already grown so much, I


Newborn Safety

Morgantown Photographer Is Newborn Photography Safe? There really isn’t a short answer for this question, unfortunately. I wish I could just say, “Yes!”, but not everyone is safe about their practices. Allow me to elaborate.  My name is shannon and I am a newborn photographer in Morgantown, WV.

The only difference is that it will feel all of the hard work is worth it.
