Newborn experience

in studio

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 studio is inviting and relaxing, perfect for new parents! Let me take care of everything, so you’re able to take a much-needed moment to yourself. 

My commercial studio is stocked with

  • high end props
  • newborn wraps
  • headbands
  • bonnets
  • and more – all for your session

We will discuss color palettes and I will create custom designed setups to complement your home’s decor.

“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! We will definitely be coming back and I can’t wait to tell everyone I know about her!”

During your Session

You can enjoy complimentary drinks, snacks, diapers, wipes, and time to yourself as I work with your baby. 

You’re welcome to watch all of the adorable baby things happening, just enjoy some alone talking with your significant other, or even take a nap as many do!

Your session

Your session will take up to about 45 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the type of session you book and pausing to allow for feeding, changing, and soothing. The atmosphere is relaxed for you and baby so you’re comfortable and the session’s pace will be determined by the baby.  There is a lot of great care taken for your newborn baby, so I never want to rush things.

The safety of your new baby 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 am confident that you can sit back and relax while I work my magic creating beautiful images for you to preserve your baby as a newborn for a lifetime.

All props, wraps, bonnets, headbands, and more are provided for your baby during your newborn session. You can show up knowing that the expert pre-planning and designing is ready to go, with all of the smallest of details perfected, just waiting for you and your family. 

Your family images are heartfelt, real, and full of love. Loving on your baby, snuggles, kisses, just like you do at home. 

As your newborn photographer, I don’t expect you to walk into this knowing to do, that’s why I will assist you each step of the process from your outfit choices to guiding you into poses during your session to choosing the wall art for your home or designing your custom album. You, your family, and your experience are important to me. 

“Our baby girl was so fussy all day and I almost called to reschedule, but I didn’t. Shannon had her calmed down in no time and got her to sleep so easily, not to mention the most precious photos of our sweet girl! She really is a baby whisperer!”

You're a baby whisperer!

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 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?

Yes! Each collection offers a specific set of digital images that are included. Additional images may be purchased separately. 

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!
