Baby One Year Session | Nashville, TN

I’d say the Baby One Year Session is the most anticipated session after the newborn session.  It’s a celebration of your baby’s first year of life.  But it’s also a celebration for you as parents.  You’ve survived that first year!  A year full of love, frustration, happiness, sleeplessness, and more.  It’s probably the quickest year of your life.  Yet the year you will have so much trouble remember years from now.  I know because I’ve been there.  I blinked, and it’s now a distant, yet beautiful memory.  The more pictures you take, the better!

Meet Connor.  He had a blast at his one year session.  His cake smash was the cutest.  All of those little expressions and faces he made at his cake were priceless.

Baby One Year Session

You have two choices when booking your baby one year session.  You can choose just a milestone session.  That is just baby in 1-2 outfits.  You can add on a cake smash and/or bubble bath.  This is my favorite option!  I can’t imagine a better way to end your baby’s first year of portraits.  They have so much fun digging into that cake.  Then, we can clean up in a bubble bath.babyoneyearsession(pp_w768_h2205) Baby One Year Session | Nashville, TN

Baby 4 Month Photography | Nashville, TN

Baby 4 month photography sessions are the first Milestone Sessions that I photograph.  By this age, babies have a longer, happy wake time and more predictable schedules.  Some babies have mastered tummy time.  Some will smile and laugh and others love sucking on their fingers and toes.  This is a milestone session where each baby is different.  Our milestone sessions are baby led.  What does that mean?  That means I am not focused on one certain pose or getting that perfect smile.  I am documenting your baby as he or she is right now.  From their hands in their mouths to their chubby little cheeks… I focus on all of the details that are so quick to change.

Meet Noah.    Last time I saw him was at his studio newborn session.  He slept pretty much most of that time.  Now he is smiling and flirting up a storm.  Aren’t his eyes mesmerizing?  They are going to steal some hearts one day!

Newborn Photographer | Easton

I’m pretty sure the best job in the world is being a newborn photographer.  I get to hug and love on newborns on a weekly basis!  Meet Easton.  His mommy is a sweet friend, and I was so excited for him to make his arrival.  Our plan was to photograph him at the hospital for a Fresh 48 session.  However, things don’t always go as planned!  Sooooooo, we settled with a newborn session in the studio.  I sure am glad we did!  He was an absolute dream to photograph.artisticnewbornphotos(pp_w768_h1251) Newborn Photographer | Easton

Easton is a pretty gorgeous newborn, but he also has a super cute big brother.  Eli LOVED his time in front of the camera showing off his baby brother.  I just love these sibling and family pictures.newbornfamilyportrait(pp_w768_h1313) Newborn Photographer | Easton

2017’s Best Photos | Nashville Photographer

I had such a fun time reflecting back on 2017’s best photos.  What a year!  I usually only post newborn sessions when I reflect on the past year.  However, I wanted to include all of my sessions for this year’s post.  Newborns and babies have always been my first love, but I revived my love for families this past year.  I met so many new faces and saw so many familiar faces.  My heart is happy.  I am so proud of how Shannon Payne Photography has grown, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for 2018!  Happy New Year!

Baby Milestone Photography

If I had to pick a favorite type of session that wasn’t a newborn session, it would be baby milestone photography.  I love capturing all of the tiny details of your baby’s first year.  Sitting, smiling, and crawling are some of the big ones.  But there are so many more!  Does your baby suck on his toes?  Does she suck her bottom lip when she’s nervous.  Does he have a favorite toy or lovey?  Does she try out the downward dog pose when she’s trying to crawl?  There are so many little moments that are so easy to miss during the first year.  That’s where Baby Milestone Photography sessions come in.  We offer these sessions in the studio to help you capture each of these little moments.  Milestone sessions focus on just baby.  They are short and sweet and scheduled around your baby’s naps.  Miss Audrey is featured below.  She was a little nervous about being in front of the camera, so I let mom sneak in some kisses.  They turned out being some of my absolute faves!
