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!

Newborn Boy Photos | Titus

Titus’ family chose our Petite Newborn Session for his newborn boy photos.  Our Petite Newborn Sessions are our most simple sessions.  Two poses, simple props, beautiful wraps with all of the focus on your newborn.  I must say, isn’t he just gorgeous?  From those round cheeks to that dark head of hair, he was the perfect little subject for his newborn boy photos.

Nashville Cake Smash Session

Josie came to our Hendersonville studio for her Nashville Cake Smash Session this fall.  Last time I saw her was at her newborn session.  Her mommy’s #1 request at that session was to use flowers.  So she wanted to incorporate flowers into her one year session and Nashville cake smash session too.  One of my Baby Bliss halos matched her flowers perfectly.  She didn’t leave it on too long though!  I’m still not sure if she liked her cake or not, but she made so many fun expressions!  These simple Nashville cake smash sessions are my favorite.  When we keep things simple, it puts the focus on baby instead of a busy theme and background.  I love planning cake smash sessions.  When you book your one year session, we can discuss ideas to plan the perfect cake smash session for your baby.

Newborn Baby Photography

I always hope that visitors to my website can tell that newborn baby photography is my passion.  If I could photograph a newborn every day, I would!  I have been photographing Noah’s parents since I first moved to Nashville almost 8 years ago.  They have had me photograph their yearly pictures and have been my longest (and some of my only) clients without kids.  That is until this summer!  You can probably guess how excited I was to photograph their new addition!  They welcomed baby Noah to their family in July.  He was such a sweetie for our session.  I recently met back up with them for his 4 month milestone session, and I can’t wait to share how much he has grown!
