I’m so excited to introduce you to my newest package option, the pure + simple session.

This is only for those looking for strictly lifestyle images. There will be minimal props, no studio newborn posing, just simple lifestyle portraiture.

This is great if you want a more natural approach to your newborn session, or even as an alternative to a hospital fresh 48.

meet the team:

I have an assistant that help throughout the sessions to help keep my baby clients as safe as possible. She will spot baby when I’m not in reach, help grab things that are needed for the setups, and help clean up all the messes that my little tiny humans create. 

She’s incredibly special to me and I’m so honored to have her by my side throughout the session!


I’m Shannon, I’m the Arizona newborn photographer behind the lens. If you haven’t had a chance already, you can read all about me here!


This is Jessica, she is a mommy to 2 littles. Aidan who is 6 years old, and loves animals, adventures and just started kindergarten. Her daughter Briar is 3 years old and loves dinosaurs and getting into trouble.

real results...

"We hired Shannon for our son's newborn shoot and family ops. Shannon's whole process is so professional, organized and she's very responsive. The quality and style of her photos captured me when I followed her on Instagram. It was such a good perk she has a client closet, because I honestly wasn't thinking about outfits for our family after baby. I literally gave her all creative freedom, I'm probably the laziest client. Lastly, during the session, she was so quick between setups, and loved seeing the outcome of the photos, I loved every singe one!."

frequently asked questions

Absolutely nothing. I provide everything needed for your studio session. I have all the props, wraps, and backdrops for your newborn session!

This varies on your package, and how the baby cooperates. A basic guideline for newborn sessions would be – 30 minutes for the precious package, an hour for the essence package, 90 minutes for the keepsake package, and two hours for the heirloom package. Again, this all depends on how baby tolerates everything, it may be longer, or it may be shorter.

For newborns I recommend booking in your second trimester, I like to wait until you clear the first trimester, but I do book up quite fast so I definitely don’t recommend waiting until the last minute; I can’t guarantee I’ll have an opening.

Look, I know I share all the fun/cute stuff on social media – but you should know that’s not how the session always plays out! With newborns you can probably expect an accident or two, maybe more! There may be a period where baby wants nothing to do with sleeping, that’s okay! We’ll roll with it, and hopefully get some cute awake shots. It’s also totally normal to have to feed baby more often than you’re use to; believe it or not, they’re working hard, and burning a ton of calories.
