Newborn & Baby Portrait Sessions

Organic & Natural

Our style & Approach

When it comes to photographing newborns & babies, our goal is to create images that take you back to that moment. We are aiming to capture images that are natural and authentic  using minimal props and soft neutral colors.   

 


Newborn Sessions

It is encouraged to book your newborn session while you are still expecting. Because newborns photograph best between 6-17 days, the actual session day is not scheduled until after the baby arrives. Newborn sessions are scheduled to start at 10am on weekdays only. To ensure availability, Shannon limits the number of newborns she accepts each month based on due date. 

I love to use whites and neutral colors with some soft colors added occasionally. I don't like anything to distract from the baby, so I try to keep things simple and pure by using minimal props. Each set up is carefully thought out to keep the focus on the baby.

 

 

Milestone Sessions

Studio sessions take place in my home in Marysville, MI.   Sessions typically last one hour but there is no time limit.  I primarily photograph on a white background creating a clean, simple, timeless look where my clients are the focus of every image.  I have several props available for babies of all ages.  The goal during the session is to have fun!  

Baby milestone sessions may be done without the baby wearing any clothing, by using special rompers and diaper covers that I have in the studio, wearing outfits brought from home, or a combination of these options.  Babies tend to be happier and more camera friendly in the morning, so morning appointments are encouraged.  Breaks for feedings, snacks, drinks, and diaper changes are often needed.   

 

 


Investment and Details

We use the word investment because that is literally what you are doing. You are investing in your memories. You are investing in something that will preserve this time in your families life. Something that will allow you to look back on a time that will go by in the blink of an eye.
