This July weather is crazy! What would normally be a sweltering July evening was an amazingly cool evening full of gorgeous light with an awesome couple. It couldn’t have been better. I love those last few months before a baby arrives. They are full of anticipation, excitement, nervousness, and so much more. It’s a time that you don’t want to forget. I can’t wait to meet this new little one in just a few weeks.

I have THE most beautiful maternity clients. It was cold and windy the morning of Elizabeth’s maternity session, and despite the weather, she was glowing. I love this time in a couple’s life. It is truly the most exciting time in a marriage, and I feel pretty lucky to be able to help couples remember it. Congrats Elizabeth and John! I can’t wait to meet your baby girl when she arrives.

Many of you have noticed my transition from photographing children and families of all ages to focusing on newborns and babies up to the toddler age. Although I love photographing all families, newborns and babies are where my heart is. I will continue to photograph families on a limited basis and through seasonal mini sessions, but I leave the most calendar space for newborns, babies, and First Moments clients. With that being said, I LOVE the session prior to newborn sessions… maternity. Whether it’s a first baby or fifth baby, I love meeting moms before their little one arrives, and I love documenting baby bumps. As a mommy, I know that that precious stage in our lives is over before we know it.
Unfortunately I have had to turn down several maternity clients because my schedule has been booked too far in advance, and I don’t like that at all! Since maternity sessions tend to take less time and most families don’t need as many images as they would in a regular session, I have decided to offer maternity sessions as mini sessions. Maternity Minis may be added onto any of my First Moments packages. If you are pregnant and interested in a First Moments package or Maternity Mini, please email me at shannon@shannonpaynephotography for my complete pricing guide. Please remember that it is best to book your maternity and newborn session during your second trimester. I recommend scheduling maternity sessions during weeks 32-34. Maternity Minis will be offered on weekday mornings or at sunset on weekdays as well as select weekends.

I seriously have the most gorgeous maternity clients. Alex is no different. We met for her maternity session on a chilly fall morning, and she was glowing and beautiful. I have fallen in love with maternity sessions this year. Not only because they lead to newborn sessions, but I just love this time in a couple’s life. The anticipation, nervousness, excitement, fear… everything about it. I treasured that time in my life, and I now treasure helping other couples remember it.
