Your newborn session will take place in my private, commercial studio. All of the high-end props, headbands, hats, wraps, etc are included and provided. Newborn sessions are held on the calendar by your due date and once baby is born, scheduled to an exact date we discuss.

I accept a limited number of sessions per month and once I reach capacity, my books are closed. This ensures my clients receive the service, experience, and photos they deserve. You will get an experience that is second to none.

You can rest assured that your baby is good hands as I have had extensive training on your baby’s safety. I know this is important to you.

Whether you’ve tried for years, had the wonderful help of science, or were lucky on the first try- they deserve to have their welcome into the world beautifully documented. Babies don’t keep, that’s for sure. You’ll look back after just a couple weeks and think, “Omigoodness, they’ve grown!”. 

Custom setups from the studio’s extensive and high-end collection so you have to bring absolutely nothing for the baby, hair and makeup services available on-site so you can relax and feel put together, and some staple dresses that are post-partum friendly so you don’t have to shop. Let me take care of everything, you deserve it.

Your baby’s safety is always my number one priority! I am proud to have completed many advanced trainings on newborn safety and have learned under some of the most world-renowned newborn photographers. I will treat your baby as if they were my own (minus the kisses!). I’m confident you can sit back and relax while I work my magic creating beautiful images of your baby for you cherish for a lifetime

Kind Words

The Knight Family

Shannon’s pictures are incredible! We heard from a friend how she takes her time during her shoots with you and really make sure she gets above quality images that you will love! She did our Maternity and Newborn photos, both were great experiences. She was so patient with us and our little one! She made us feel right at home, so comfortable, and really took time to ensure our shoot was everything we envisioned!

The Helwig Family

Shannon’s attentiveness to her immediately allowed me to relax and know she was okay. Her attention to detail truly captures these important parts of our lives where every bit matters & we will carry with us forever. I cannot thank her enough!

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

When should I book?

Booking in your 2nd or early 3rd trimester is always best. But, always reach out and I may have some last minute spots open.

How old should baby be?

The best time is before 2-3 weeks, but changes can be made to accommodate older babies. 

How long does a session take?

This will depend on baby’s cooperation. I will never force a baby to do something they don’t want to do and if they need to stop for a feeding, then that’s what we do. They run the show, just like at home.

How long does it take to get our photos back?

Your proof gallery will be ready to come and view about 7-10 days after your session. From there, your final images will be ready within 3 weeks for download. Products vary.

Do I need to bring anything?

Nope! I provide it all! I even have diapers and wipes. All you need to bring is baby and milk. If you have something meaningful you’re wanting to add, please let me know ahead time so I can work it into the session.

How do I book?

It’s all super easy! Fill out the contact form below and I will reach out. We will chat real quick and make sure we are a good fit for each other. Then when you’ve made the awesome decision to work with me, I’ll send over your contract and invoice to pay the session fee to get you on the calendar.
