Where are you based?
I live in Milford, Ma but service all of the Metrowest, Ma area.
Do you have a studio?
Yes! My studio is located in Milford, Ma.
What type of sessions do you photograph?
I love photographing all genres but my main focus that I pour my heart and soul into is the maternity & newborn stage. I also love following my clients throughout their child and family sessions as well as couples. I am only currently booking small intimate weddings on a limited basis and I am currently not scheduling any events (baby showers, birthday parties, etc.), head-shots or extended family sessions (7 or more) at this time.
Whats your style?
As with every singe photographer, I struggled to find my style for so many years. I feel like I capture a gently posed yet lifestyle type session. I like to mix organic earthy tones with pops of color that eludes simplicity and emotion with a little boho chic :) I always feel simple is best as to focus on the subject and not get caught up on material details. I like to bring out what is most important in every session which is the story of my client(s).
When do you schedule sessions?
Outdoor sessions I typically schedule on weekdays and weekends an hour or so before the sunsets. This is when lighting is best. The sun is low, soft and luminous. Studio & Newborn sessions are scheduled on the weekends starting at 11am and select Monday's and Fridays between 11AM-4PM.
Where do you shoot your outdoor sessions?
I have suggestions for locations based on the style session you’re trying to achieve. All session locations can be discussed as part of your session.
Can I print my images myself?
Yes. All my sessions include edited/retouched images + print release. You also have the ability to add on professional prints and wall decor from your in studio viewing session. Gallery images are chosen by me as to ensure the best images are the front of your story.
You fit my style and I want to work with you! How do I book my session?
Complete the contact form located in the tab at the top of this page or send an email to: Shannonleighphotography84@gmail.com. Sessions are only scheduled after a deposit has been paid. Receipt of payment guarantees the date/time allotted for you.
Should I get my hair and makeup done professionally?
Absolutely girl! I highly recommend professional hair and makeup. If you need any referrals please let me now and I will be glad to direct you to some amazing artist in my area.
What happens if the weather is bad?
Cloudy weather is not a problem, I actually prefer cloudy days :) However, if it rains, snows, etc. I will contact you as soon as possible to postpone or reschedule.
How long are the sessions?
Regular sessions typically last 60-90 minutes. Newborns 2-4 hours and mini sessions 30 minutes. (mini sessions are not offered on a regular basis)
I’m excited to see my photos! When will they be ready and how does the viewing session work?
I usually post a sneak peek on my Facebook page or Instagram feed within the first week. Your entire gallery will be completed within 2 weeks. Fall sessions, Summer Sessions or baby booms is roughly a 3-4 week turnaround. You are then welcomed to set up a viewing appointment in studio to watch your gallery come to life. After viewing, you will have the option to add on any wall products, specialty books or boutique prints to complete your entire session. My goal is to have you leave with connection and a full heart knowing that we were able to capture such a special time in your life.
