Weather and Photography in Morgantown

Most people want the perfect weather for their picture day. Well, unfortunately, it isn’t always sunny here in Morgantown. But, it doesn’t have to be! I have taken some of the most beautiful images when the fog covers the mountains, there is a storm headed our way, or even in the snow! There is so much more to your pictures than the sun and weather.

Connection, love, movement, clothing, among many other things help to bring your photos alive. You can have the most gorgeous sun and warm day, but if you’re missing something else, well it just won’t be the same. Take away the sun but have the rest and you’ll have stunning images!

Maternity Session outdoors. Mom is wearing a velvet long boho dress with a long train and cape sleeves. She is holding her bump with one hand, the other hand behind her head, looking off into the distance.

Putting everything together and creating a vision is awesome, but being able to make something work that you weren’t expecting is even more awesome!

I have had some clients that get worried when they see the weather isn’t what they really wanted. Then they see their images and are blown away! They’re still just as beautiful!

So in closing, trust me! I will not let you down!

Hello! I’m Shannon, the gal behind Wood and Lace. I am a full time professional photographer. When I’m not behind the camera, I am editing, working on the back end (website, marketing, etc), taking new courses to continue to grow my craft, and then all of the mom things after work is over the day. They say if you do something you love that you will never work a day in your life… I beg to differ. When you love what you do, you will work harder than you ever have in your life. The only difference is that it will feel all of the hard work is worth it.
