Fine Art Maternity and Newborn Photographer

I can tell you’re so excited! Getting all the baby things ready, studying up on what to expect, resting as much as possible (hopefully) – you know, ALLL the things. Let me help you to create the newborn session of your dreams, all while making it easy for you.

The studio is stocked with an array of high-end and well-curated props, wraps, headbands, and so much more. Want baby solo or family and baby? I got you! Want hair and makeup? Borrow a dress? Girl, you know I got you again. I told you I’m going to make this easy for you!

You’re taking care of so much, let me take care of this meaningful part of your story for you. 

Don’t let it pass you by, wishing you had the photos to remember the smallest of details. Time and moments are not something we can get back, the time is now and these are your legacy. 

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! – Samantha

Your Experience

Your experience is stress-free, laid-back, and seamless.

Making sure your hair looks amazing, your chin is just right, all the things to make sure you’re looking top-notch!

All newborn props and accessories are provided for your newborn session. There are new items being added all of the time and they’re made specifically for newborn photography.

I understand that this not something you do everyday and that’s why people hire me, an expert in her field, to guide and to ensure you get exactly what you come to me for. Posing is an art in itself and I got you there too, don’t worry!

Think your older kids won’t sit still? Of course they won’t! I don’t expect them to and that’s ok! They’re meant to enjoy every part of life and a photo session isn’t any different.

If I could give Shannon 10 stars, I would! She is a true professional and a master at her craft. You can expect a fun and efficient photo session with her, as well as friendly coaching along the way (trust me...take her coaching notes)! My husband and I used her for our maternity pictures and with confidence can say we will be returning many more times.

Shannon was absolutely incredible to work with. She was patient, kind, calm and made us super comfortable. The kids had fun and mom & dad weren’t stressed! WIN WIN in my book! ❤️ We will be lifetime clients of hers, that’s how happy we were with our photos and the overall experience. Highly recommend Shannon! You won’t be disappointed in the quality of photos she captures for your family!

We cannot recommend Wood and Lace more. Shannon has quickly become our family photographer after doing maternity and newborn portraits, and with reason. Her talent is remarkable for finding great shots that turn out better than expected on "film". She is a joy to work with and is excellent at directing while not being pushy. We can't wait to work with her to capture our growing family again soon.
