Many mothers never considered having maternity portraits done. Why? This is such a magical and exciting moment in your life. I recommend booking maternity sessions around 7-8 months. This is a perfect time because your belly is round and beautiful and you are still pretty uncomfortable and able to move easily. Most maternity sessions take place outdoors in a beautiful natural location. Maternity sessions may also be booked for indoor sessions. These indoor session will be unposed and take place in your home.

Newborn sessions typically take place between day 5 and 10. It is important to book your session during this time frame. Babies 5 to 10 days old are still super sleepy and easy to pose. Newborn sessions with Shannon Hager Photography are 75% posed, 25% lifestyle, always ensuring proper safety measures are being followed. Props, wraps and hats are used minimally and tastefully. The goal of newborn sessions is to create beautiful and timeless photos. Sessions take place in the studio.


Baby sessions are for babies 1 month-12 months old. These sessions are a great way to document the different stages of the first year of life. It is always so much fun watching personalities develop and seeing them grow. Sessions take place in the studio or outdoors. For those that completed a newborn session with Shannon Hager Photography, a special Watch Me Grow baby plan is available with discounted sessions at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months.

As a mother of 4, I completely understand how fast our children grow up. Children have the most magical imagination, and what better way to capture that then a custom designed photography session. Does your child have a favorite book? Lets create the scene in the book. Do they love superheroes or ponies? Lets wear capes or spend some time with a pony. Do they love the forest and exploring? Lets go on an adventure. Let Shannon Hager Photography design a custom session for your child that captures who they are right now and lets create their story.


Teen and Senior Photography Sessions are exciting and fun. These sessions are available year round. Shannon Hager Photography offers a limited number of Family sessions. Limited Edition Mini Sessions are offered 2 times a year and book very quickly. Those that subscribe to the monthly newsletter will be the first to book these sessions.
