I held her hands in mine as the tears fell from her eyes...

After completing her little one’s Newborn Session, Alyssa began tearing up. “You don’t know how much this means to us,” she said. “We tried and prayed for years to have a baby and now here we are with our new love. I can’t believe I’m living out my biggest dream.” I held her hands and replied, “I know exactly how you feel because I went through that same journey too.”

I know intimately what it’s like to hope and pray for years to have a baby. When your miracle baby finally arrives, it feels like the greatest gift of all. That’s why I put all my love and care into newborn photography - because these precious moments deserve to be documented. This lifelong dream deserves to be celebrated. 

As your maternity and newborn photographer, I promise to create images that genuinely showcase your love and preserve your legacy for you and your family to enjoy now and for future generations. To find out what it's like to work with me, click the Motherhood Experience button below.

“We have absolutely loved our family portraits with Shaunae. She has such a calm presence and is great with kids and so patient. She has captured the most beautiful connected moments with my toddler even as he ran totally wild and would not sit still. Her imagery is such a family treasure already.”

- Rueter Family

"Shaunae was amazing to work with. She is thorough, professional, and extremely kind. She was extremely easy to communicate with and our photos turned out amazing. Not to mention she had the photos back to us within the next few days. Everybody deserves beautiful photos! I can’t wait for Shaunae to photograph our family again!"
