Hi!  My name is Shannon, and I’m the face behind the camera.  I am married to my best friend and mommy to 2 boys.  One day I blinked, and they are now 9 and 11! I have always loved pictures, but I didn’t make photography my career until my second son was born.  I knew that most likely this little gift would be my last baby, and I wanted to capture every single ounce of him.  My little hobby turned into a passion, and before I knew it Shannon Payne Photography was born.  I use my background as an elementary school teacher with a degree in Human Development to connect with children and familes. 

My boutique portrait studio is located in the heart of Hendersonville, TN just outside of Nashville.  I specialize in newborn, baby, and family photography.  I have photographed over 400 newborns and countless more babies and familes.  I would be honored to capture your new love.
