I’m glad you’re interested in the details! If you love what you see, the first step is to send me a message so we can start chatting about your vision and timeframe needs for a session.
While many sessions do take place outdoors, I do also have a light and airy studio space that is always available for any session. This space is a great option for maternity, newborn, and even family sessions with no need to stress over the weather. You can see more about the studio here.
Send me a message and let me know what type of session(s) you are interested in, and any details that you'd like to include within your vision.
After you review what is included in a session experience with me and decide to move foward (yay!), the only thing you'll need to do is sign a contract and pay the session fee. And then your date is reserved!
Once you're booked, we will discuss location, times, and you'll receive a style guide to help with the wardrobe planning piece for you and all your family members. You are also welcome to borrow any dresses from my Client Closet (a collection of 50+ dresses for women).
The planning is done - now it's time to just show up and HAVE FUN! I'll guide you through natural posing so you don't need to worry about anything but being happy! If you have little ones, expect tickle fights, snuggles, and lots of loving on everyone.
Once your gallery is ready to view, you'll receive an email with directions on how to download the files (for the collection you chose), as well as give many options for additional products.
Each stage of a family's story is worthy of beautiful documentation. I strive for natural posing to ensure genuine photographs between you and your loved ones.
Newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home or in a natural, beautiful studio space. I strive to intentionally photograph the bond between parent and child. Sessions last up to 3 hours as we work around your newborn's needs.
There is no time more special for a woman than when she is carrying life. We work together to create a beautiful vision for your growing family.
A lot of time and care goes into each session and a select number of sessions are booked per month. Each session includes
- A detailed style guide upon booking
- Access to client dress closet for mamas
- My time and talent for your session time
- Profession image retouching and processing
- Private online gallery to view images

Our experience working with Shawna has been excellent! She is professional and down to earth, with an amazing eye for beautiful photographs. Our two little girls are usually quite reserved but they warmed up to her right away and were able to be themselves during our sessions. I highly recommend her work to friends and family!
The client closet is amazing. It is such a helpful perk that I have loved. Worrying about what to wear has gotten harder and harder as the family has grown and I’m often the last one to figure out my outfit - but the dresses you bring are beautiful and I have always been extremely pleased!
You have the patience of a saint, from helping us calm our newborn by swaddling and soothing her to getting her to smile and laugh as a wild, unruly toddler... I recommend you to everyone looking for beautiful family photos. You are worth every penny and more for your craft and friendship.
