Morgantown, WV Newborn Photographer

Morgantown Studio Newborn Sessions

Congratulations! Whether you’re expecting or have already brought your new baby home, those first few weeks are a blur, I remember it all too well. My private, commercial studio is inviting and relaxing, perfect for new parents! This is probably your first trip out of the house, so allow me to relieve this stress from you and give you a much-needed moment to yourself (while you’re in the same room, of course!). You can show up knowing that all of the smallest of details are perfected, just waiting for you and your family.

“We have always done the “everyone looking at the camera” pictures and I was a little nervous we wouldn’t do lifestyle right. Shannon made it so easy and comfortable for us! It was such a great experience and I’m so thankful we did it!”

Customize Your session

With an array of beautiful items, I will create custom setups for the baby’s solo portion. We will discuss color palettes within your home, so that I may use complementary tones and colors.

What to expect

Your studio session will take up to about 2 to 3 hours, pausing to allow for feeding, changing, and soothing. 

There is a lot of great care taken for your newborn baby, so I never want to rush things.

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 care your baby as if they were my own.

FAQ

When is the best time to book newborn photos?

I recommend booking as soon as you know you’re wanting newborn photos! I know sometimes that isn’t until after baby is already here, but second or early third trimester is best. My schedule fills up quickly, so the sooner the better. However, reach out and I will see if I am able to accommodate your little one. 

What if my baby comes earlier or later than my due date?

Baby’s almost never come on their due date. Your due date is just the date we use to secure you a date on the calendar. With a limited number of newborn sessions done per month, this ensures you a spot for your session. 

Where are the photos done?

Your studio newborn session takes place in my studio right off of the interstate in Morgantown. The address is 827 Fairmont Rd Suite 206 Morgantown, WV 26501. 

Do I bring anything for the baby? Clothes or props?

Nope! I provide it all! New items are being added all of the time. 

What happens if my baby uses the bathroom on your stuff?!

That’s what washers are for! It won’t be the first time and certainly won’t be last. 

Do you provide digital images?

If digital files are what you’re after, there are collections that include only digital files.

How do I know if I’m prepared?

I will send you a prep guide to help with that! It will give you all the tips and what-to-do’s! 

Love what you see?

“I had planned on just getting pictures of my baby, but decided last minute, maybe I would hop in a few. I didn’t feel great, I didn’t want to go shopping only to be disappointed, but my mom told me I needed to get a couple with him. Shannon offered for me to come try on some dresses at the studio before the session and I found one that fit perfectly! I didn’t have to go to the mall, baby in tow, go store to store, cry because nothing fit (hello post pregnancy belly); she made it easy for me. Now that I did it, I’m so thankful I did.”
