Custom Newborn Photography

One of the most important things about choosing the photographer for your custom newborn photography session is finding one that fits your style.  Have you looked at their website?  Have you checked our their Facebook and Instagram feeds?  How many newborns do they photograph each month?  How many years of experience do they have?  Are they showing only 1 picture from each session or will they share an entire gallery of images?  Do they provide props or ask you to bring your own?  Do they have a studio?  Do they send you a prep guide to prepare for your session?  What do they do if baby doesn’t sleep?  Yes, I know price and budget are an important when choosing your newborn photographer, but answers to the questions above may predict the outcome of your newborn session.  These are all answers I am happy to give when you contact me about your newborn session

Your custom newborn photography session includesa choice of 4 different newborn packages ranging from $450-$1400.  Each package includes a select number of digital files.  Our larger packages include our most popular items such as wooden photoblocks and birth announcements.  You will find gorgeous heirloom quality albums in our Heirloom Newborn session.  One of our most popular packages is the Classic Newborn.  This package includes several setups with just baby as well as family pictures.  I’d love to hear from you to discuss the best package for your family.

This is a sample of some of my favorites from Tucker’s Petite Newborn session.  The Petite Newborn session focuses on baby and includes 2 different poses.  Tucker slept like a champ so we got even more poses in his 1 hour session!  One of my favorites was incorporating the vintage airplane from his nursery.  I think he loved holding on to it too!

Nashville Lifestyle Photography

Nashville Lifestyle Photography | Although a vast majority of my sessions are in the studio, I do a few lifestyle sessions each year.  The Hawkins family chose a lifestyle session for their first born and wanted to do the same for baby #2.  I love watching a family adjust to their new baby in their home.  Big brother seemed to be doing fine.  It was their fur baby that seemed to be having the hardest time adjusting!

“Shannon was so sweet and we felt like we’d always known her the minute we met her. Our two year old took to her instantly. We loved how she was able to capture our beloved pup in so many of our family pictures.”
~Brianna Hawkins

Posed Newborn Photos | Nashville, TN

I am so honored when clients choose me for their first baby’s posed newborn photos.  Becoming a new parents is exciting and nerve racking all bundled up into one package.  When you first find out you are expecting a baby, I feel like you have a “Pinterest” view of parenthood.  You dream of cute outfits, unique gender announcements, the best stroller and baby carries, the list goes on and on… Then baby arrives, and your life switches to conversations about poop and breastfeeding.  Then it’s time for the newborn pictures you’ve been envisioning for months, and you are scared to death.  What if she doesn’t sleep?  What if he cries the whole time?  What if she poops all over the blankets?   I never want parents to be nervous for their sessions, although I know they will be.  My job is to prepare parents for their session so that they know what to expect.  However, my most important job is to take care of their baby.  After being in business for 8 years and specializing in newborns for 5 years, I never forget how honored I am for parents to hand their new baby to me with complete trust.  Every single session focuses on baby and keeping baby comfortable.  Posed newborn photos should not be stressful.  If a baby tells me that she doesn’t like a pose, we move on.  If she needs to be held tight and loved, we stop and give her snuggles.  If she’s hungry, we feed her.  My goal is to take my time to get those pictures you’ve dreamed of for months.  And to do it without stressing out parents AND baby.  I’ve trained for years to create a warm and loving environment for new parents and baby, and I hope that shows at each and every one of my sessions.  I love my job, and I am honored every single time a parent chooses me to photograph their baby’s first pictures.  I love this quote that Gabriela’s mom sent me about her session.  I feel like she described all of those fears perfectly.

“When it came to getting photos done of my Newborn I knew we would absolutely do it. I was so nervous about bringing my unpredictable Newborn to someone’s studio to be photographed for 3 hours. Once we arrived I immediately felt comfortable. My favorite part was watching her transition from one look to the next so gently! Each pose making me relax and just enjoy that fact that I am finally with my 2 week old baby having these beautiful photos taken! Now with her being 3 months old I look back at those pictures and am reminded of such a beautiful time with my innocent baby and my beautiful family!”  ~ Gabriela’s mom, Jessica

Christmas Jammie Minis | Nashville Christmas

I am SO excited to announce our first ever Christmas Jammie Mini Sessions!  This are going to be AH-mazing!  Seriously, I can’t wait!  I have held off on having themed sessions for years because I’ve never felt like a Christmas setup fits my style of photography.  So for years, everyone has asked for Christmas setups, and for years I’ve said no.  Until now!  I’ve had a vision of building a farmhouse styled bed in the white room of the studio.  I figured winter would be a perfect time to get it all setup.  Christmas Jammie Minis will be our inaugural event!!!!

Christmas Jammie Minischristmaspjsession(pp_w768_h562) Christmas Jammie Minis | Nashville Christmas

The details:

Dates: Friday, December 1st 10am-12pm  + Saturday, December 2nd 9am-10am + 11:40-3pm

Location: Our Hendersonville Studio

Price: $200 {includes your choice of 5 digital files with printing rights}

These are our FIRST EVER holiday themed minis.  But when I say themed, they truly are very simple.  No over the top props, not extremely busy, so that the focus is still your child.  Simply your little people in their Christmas morning outfits!  Can it be any more fun than that?  We’ll have Christmas books to read and cookies to nibble.  My job is to capture every detail from their bright eyes, to the excitement of the season.  We won’t just be sitting on the bed saying look at the camera.  That is not me, and it is never fun for your kids.  We’ll be bouncing, playing, laughing, and giggling.

Sessions are scheduled 20 minutes apart.  Children only, no families.  Babies must be sitting or have a sibling that can help support them.  Please dress your children in traditional holiday colors such as red and green, plaids will look great as well as neutral/organic outfits and colors.  Full balance is due at booking.  Sessions are non-refundable or transferable.    Images will be delivered by December 5th. 

Email shannon@shannonpaynephotography.com to reserve your spot.
