Shannon Payne Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to Shannon Payne Photography! I am the mommy to two adorable little boys that inspire me everyday. Watching them grow right before my eyes makes me treasure each and every picture that I have. From milestones to simple moments, their pictures hold precious memories.

    I love the innocence of a sleeping newborn baby, the sweet smiles between sisters, and the rough hugs between brothers. I love watching families grow over the years, and I feel so lucky to be able to capture all of these special moments for others. Beautiful pictures help you remember those special moments in time, and they will be your most valuable investments.

    You will find all of my most recent sessions here on my blog, so make sure to come back often and see what's new with SPP. My boutique portrait studio is located in Hendersonville, TN just outside of Nashville. I photograph sessions indoors and outdoors at my studio as well as on location. If you'd like to book a session, send an email to shannon@shannonpaynephotography.com. It is best to schedule your session 3-4 months in advance and during your 2nd trimester for a newborn session.

Nashville Baby Session Photographer | Franklin

Nashville Baby Session Photographer | Franklin is one of my First Moments babies.  So I get to see him every few months during his first year for his milestone sessions.  This session was a big one!  He was sitting, playing on his tummy, pushing up, and smiling.  I feel is love with his big blue eyes.  I love the simplicity and tones from his session.  I prefer shooting babies without clothing, so that the focus is on them.  It also keeps the style so timeless, and less stress over outfits for parents!  Franklin’s mommy is expecting baby #5, so I know she appreciated not planning any clothing!nashvillebabysessionphotographerNashville Baby Session Photographer | Shannon Payne Photography is a boutique studio located just outside of Nashville TN.  Our photography studio is nestled in the heart of Hendersonville, TN.  We offer maternity, newborn, and baby sessions as well as packages for baby plans.  Shannon Payne Photography is Hendersonville’s premier maternity, newborn, and baby photographer.  Cake smash sessions may be included in your baby’s one year session.

Nashville Cake Smash Photographer | Carter

Nashville Cake Smash Photographer | I just realized that I never blogged my favorite cake smash from 2016!  This adorable session took place months ago.  However, I couldn’t let it go unblogged!  It is too cute not to share!  When Carter’s mommy send me the crown for his Where the Wild Things Are themed birthday, I just knew we’d have to have a rustic cake smash.  Luckily, my husband things he’s a lumberjack.  So we have chopped wood all the time.  We decided to use a stump for his cake stand.  I love the suede teepee, rope, and wood stack details in the background.  Carter’s simple diaper cover was perfect.  I love bare skin at cake smashes.  It shows of that creamy baby skin and of course the frosting!  The crown on the cake and his birthday crown were so simple, yet added to the theme perfectly.  Finally, that cake!  I love the rustic frosting style that has become popular.  It makes a perfect boy cake.  Carter was just as happy with the session as I was with the setup.  He had a blast digging in!nashvillecakesmashphotographerNashville Cake Smash Photographer | Shannon Payne Photography is a boutique studio located just outside of Nashville TN.  Our photography studio is nestled in the heart of Hendersonville, TN.  We offer maternity, newborn, and baby sessions as well as packages for baby plans.  Shannon Payne Photography is Hendersonville’s premier maternity, newborn, and baby photographer.  Cake smash sessions may be included in your baby’s one year session.

Middle TN Nashville Newborn Photographer | Kash

Middle TN Nashville Newborn Photographer | Kash is one of my second siblings.  I photographed his brother’s newborn session and first year.  Now it’s his turn.  His family moved to Georgia but decided to come back for his pictures.  I know how stressful it is to travel with kids.  Knowing that they were willing to make the drive for a newborn session is such an honor to me!  He is such a handsome little guy.  So is his big brother!  Big bro ROCKED his sibling and family pictures.  He was all smiles and followed directions perfectly.  I couldn’t have asked for a better session.

Here are a few thoughts from his mom about his session.

What was your favorite part of your session?   I love just watching you work your magic and take pictures. It’s so neat to see you with the babies and them get wrapped up and the props. 
Do you have a favorite picture?   Why?   Kash with his daddy and brother Kolsen. You truly captured their love for one another. 

What do you love most about being a mom of two?   Seeing Kolsen interact and the love they already have for one another. I don’t know remember what it was like before Kash anymore.

Children Photography Nashville TN

Children Photography Nashville TN | Tennessee weather in February was crazy this year!  It was unseasonably warm, and the flowers bloomed faster than usual.  So, what’s a photographer to do when daffodils bloom?  Schedule mini sessions, of course!  I had a free Sunday coming up and schedule three awesome families just a few days in advance.  Then…. I came down with food poisoning.  I mean, b.i.g. t.i.m.e.  So minis had to be rescheduled, but we squeezed them all in before the flowers went away.

These two have quickly become some of my favorite little subjects. They are gorgeous, and LOVE having their pictures taken.
