Ever wonder what to wear for family pictures? This family is the perfect example of how to coordinate in a way that is modern, yet timeless. I always recommend that clients pick one or two of their favorite shades (in this case, navy and burgundy) and pair with neutrals. I love how the little girl’s golden yellow skirt compliments the outfits and also adds a touch of variety. Visual depth is added by using a variety of textures, denim, corduroy and kitted fabrics. Perfection.

I loved photographing this sweet milestone in baby M’s life. M wanted so badly to run and play with his siblings. So, at the end of our session I made sure we squeezed in a game of tag. I love to initiate play as a means of capturing children as they are at this stage of their lifves. There is such sweetness and honesty in adding a touch of documentary/lifestyle photography to your portrait session. I always go for a mix of posed and playful so you can have the best of both worlds.
When I entered this home for our session I was DELIGHTED to see this gorgeous kitchen sink. I encouraged wrapping up our baby milestone session with a quick sink bath. Why? Literally no child ever has been less than thrilled to take a sink bath. They are in one of their favorite environments, which means I get to capture them as you observe them – happy, carefree, at HOME. What better way to document one of the most joyful parts of babyhood?

NOTHING gives me more of a thrill than a perfect sunset session, and this is no exception. Garrard landing park is the most gorgeous little gem of a photo shoot location. It has fields, streams and a precious little rustic, covered bridge. I could shoot here every day and be utterly content.
Lifestyle newborn sessions currently have my heart. I adore capturing tender moments between mama and baby in their own home – where everyone is most fully themselves. I aim for lightly posed images, and a healthy mix of serenity and playfulness in your final gallery. The whole family gets in front of the lens (even pets). If you’d love a snuggled-up newborn session in your own home, e-mail me at Shannon@partytreephoto.com and we’ll plan your perfect session!
This beautiful family drove over an hour for one of my special “petite fall minis”. Their darling baby girl was feeling sick, but perked up when she was offered a treat/prop (always a big win for everyone). Of course, parents are always consulted beforehand on the offering of any treats. Prior communication is so important to a fun, safe smooth photo session. Contact me at Shannon@partytreephoto.com to start the conversation, and we’ll plan your dream photo session together!
These are just a few of my favorite images from 2017’s Christmas Mini Sessions at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve. I like to schedule these just as the leaves are turning to take advantage of the luscious fall color, but before the cold hits hard. Especially for families with small kids, its important for everyone to be comfy cozy and warm during a photo session! To book a spot for 2018, email me at Shannon@partytreephoto.com.
Every year, I do pumpkin patch mini sessions and I literally cannot get enough! Children are always so thrilled to go play among the pumpkins, it makes my job tons of FUN! Come play with us in 2018 (email me at Shannon@partytreephoto.com to book in advance).
This chilly, early morning session was to commemorate this sweet girl’s first birthday! Cool-weather sessions are a great excuse to get lots of fantastic snuggled up shots that focus on connection, warmth and love.
These beautiful siblings are always such a pleasure to photograph. They’re literally best buddies! As always, our session was laid back, full of silliness and felt more like play than anything else – the only way to ensure natural, whole-hearted smiles that warm your heart for years to come.
