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.

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.

Nashville Milestone Photography | Baby Rian

Nashville Milestone Photography | I just love all of the looks we got in 15 minutes for Rian’s 4 month session.  The last time I saw her was at her newborn lifestyle session.  It’s amazing how much can change in 4 short months.  Now smiling and cooing.  She has beautiful eyes just like her mommy. She loved smiling at the camera.  She’s found her feet and loves pulling at her toes.  In the blink of an eye, she’ll move on from this stage.  I’m so glad her parents will have these portraits so that they can remember this sweet stage.nashvillebabyphotography Nashville Milestone Photography | Baby RianNashville Milestone Photography | 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 are included in your baby’s one year session.

Styled Baby Photography Sessions Nashville | Amelia

Styled Baby Photography Sessions Nashville | Sweet Amelia was another one of my Milestone Mini sessions.  She looked so cute in this sitter romper.  I love the lace and flower details.  We added in some pops of flowers since spring is coming up.  Amelia’s milestone that we captured was sitting.  But she also has two bottom teeth that are popping out when she smiles.  This is one of my all time favorite stages!

Many clients and potential clients ask what ages are best to photograph after the newborn stage.  I recommend milestones over ages.  Tummy, sitting, pushing up, and standing are the most popular milestones.  These tend to work out to 6/6.5 months and 12 months or 4, 8, and 12 months.  We offer packages for whichever milestones you choose.styledbabysessionsnashvile Styled Baby Photography Sessions Nashville | AmeliaStyled Baby Photography Sessions Nashville | 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 are included in your baby’s one year session.

Nashville Baby Milestone Photography

Nashville Baby Milestone Photography | Last month we offered Milestone Mini sessions, and they were a HUGE hit!  They were a shortened version of our regular Milestone Sessions.  Only these were 15 minutes.  They were fully styled.  All parents needed to bring was baby.  We stock a great selection of boutique outfits for babies under 12 months.  The sitter rompers are always a favorite.  But I loved this little guy just bare skin.  Isn’t he gorgeous!  I loved his session, and I love how much variation we can get in a short 15 minutes.

If you have a baby under 12 months, we’d love to hear from you.  Milestone sessions can take place at any age from 4-12 months.  They capture that cute little milestone your baby has reached.  Whether it’s sitting, pushing up, or chewing a bottom lip… no milestone is too small.  SPP is here to document it for you.babymilestonblog Nashville Baby Milestone Photographymilestonebabysessionnashville Nashville Baby Milestone PhotographyNashville Baby Milestone Photography | 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 are included in your baby’s one year session.
