small sessions with a big impact

the mini session experience

Over the last 13 years I've perfected mini sessions. We capture over 300 families a year with mini session, meaning we know how to provide beautiful results quickly. Mini sessions work best with smaller families, though you can book two back-to-back if you have a larger family. These are perfect for those who don't love taking pictures yet still want to remember this time in their life with their family. If you need something bigger, consider a full session, which can be booked through out the year ( with the exception of our styled holiday sessions ) and include an even detailed experience.

the mini session investment details

Shanyn was absolutely amazing from the moment I inquired about her services to booking my maternity and newborn shoot with her. What I loved was she paid extra close attention to small details to ensure the photos were just right. She was fabulous with my newborn daughter and trusted her to take full control of the shoot. All of my photos came out beautiful!!! I highly recommend her services and her prices are very reasonable. As long as we live in Arizona we will be using her services for any and all future photos! Thank you Shanyn for everything! :)

newborn session


I cannot recommend Shanyn enough! Need a feel good shoot? Boudoir? Family? Maternity? Cake smash? She’s done it all for my family and every time I come out shocked at the result. Our last family session was about 20 minutes because my kids wouldn’t stop crying, it was chaos, no one was participating and I even cried because I was so frustrated. But then Shanyn delivered a full album of photos that I couldn’t even believe how she was able to make us look that put together. She is our forever photographer!

Family Session

Shanyn has been documenting our family’s milestones (Maternity, Newborn, family, minis) for the last two years and we are so grateful we found her! She is very easy to work with and the final images are always stunning and timeless. She helps you pose and provides guidance to make you look good which is so important. She is the best with little ones - our toddler loves her and always warms up to her quickly. Our sessions are always fun and she captures such a wide variety of photos, even during minis. For newborn sessions all you have to do is bring the baby to the studio and she takes it from there which is wonderful when you just had a baby and are exhausted. Shanyn also has a client closet full of unique dresses that photograph really well and you can try them on in the studio before your session. We can’t wait for our next session!
