Custom photography is about art, professionalism and client service – not just clicking a button. When you decide to invest with me, you’re investing in a lifetime experience. From the very beginning you’ll notice a huge difference. You’re not some customer that I’ll forget about tomorrow. I want to watch your family grow and be a very special part of it!

Each session will require a non-refundable $75 retainer fee. This fee will be applied to the remainder of your session. This just ensures we can get you confirmed and on our calendar! Collections start at $400.


Newborn sessions are generally booked prior to baby’s arrival. This ensures there is enough availability for your session and allows for plenty of planning time! Bookings are based on your tentative due date and are finalized once baby is born. Sessions are best completed in the first 21 days of life and can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on the options you choose.

Newborn sessions take place in Shawna’s home studio. We have a glorious selection of studio props. Based on information you provide us prior to the session, we will creatively choose the most stunning session set ups that you will love! Baby will be the main focus for the session, however including parents and siblings in a few shots can be quite magical and we definitely encourage it!

PLEASE be sure to do your research when looking for a newborn photographer – don’t merely choose someone because they may be the least expensive, there’s usually a reason – this is not just any other photo session – this is your newborn. This is a session that needs to be provided by someone that is knowledgeable in how to handle your love and most importantly, the SAFETY of your little miracle. I have studied, trained, and now taught other photographers all around the world these incredibly important skills. It is NOT a skill everyone posses (most do not) and you should never assume this about a photographer.

*For safety reasons we ALWAYS use an assistant for ALL our Newborn Sessions!

Our Sitter Sessions are perfect for your little one who is sitting (baby must be sitting unassisted) and pulling up, but not yet quick enough to run away from the camera! These sessions are perfect for parents wanting to capture their baby between 6 months and 12 months of age (7 months is highly recommended), but are open to babies of any age as long as they are 12 months or younger, sitting up and are not walking!

Our Cake Smash Sessions are for babies turning the big one! A studio cake smash session is a fun, joyful way to commemorate the milestone of your little one’s first birthday.This is a great way for you to capture your little one’s 1 year milestone!

I keep my family photography sessions fun for the whole family. We will laugh together and play together and I may be silly, make crazy noises or get down on the ground and get dirty, but it is all for the perfect sweet smile… That’s what it’s all about! We may do a little bit of posing for grandma but I mostly want to see you and your family play together and be yourself, capture you as you are interacting together and loving each other. This is all about you and your family and capturing those everyday looks, smiles and giggles that you always want to remember!

I am currently offering mini family sessions year around for families of 5 or less. All my outdoor sessions are booked in the evenings, just before sunset. If you are looking for a longer session, you can choose that as an add-on option when booking!
