Little Mr. Anthropologie… | San Antonio Newborn Photographer

I left yesterday’s newborn shoot full of peace & joy. The Christmas music was playing & I had just left the most beautiful family. The shoot was exactly how I hope every one of my shoots feels. Warm. Bright. Joyful. Inspiring. Calm. Loving.

I felt like a little lightbulb went on in my head as I drove home. Something transformative happened in that beautiful home. & I finally saw something I hadn’t seen before. I saw my style finally emerge. Maybe you have seen it grow & evolve here, but to me, it seems like this journey that keeps me winding & winding & winding all over the place. I know what I love. I know what I don’t. I know I want to produce images that you have never EVER seen before. I want you to be able to look at my work & say, “shawna did that. no doubt about it.” I am so over the baby on a white blanket on a beanbag. OVER. IT. I feel like once you’ve seen it, you’ve seen it. BLAH. I like color & texture & fabric & light & flowers & babies. & then in the blink of an eye…it just came to me. I do know my style. I know what makes my heart go pitter patter & what makes me want to rush home & edit…

I have found the way to marry my love of decor & design with babies. Nothing makes me happier than a beautifully decorated room, except a beautifully decorated room with a newborn. Got it. I decorate with babies. I style them like I would the perfect outfit: layers of texture & pattern. Matched but mismatched. Interesting, but not overdone. This is my style. My fashion style. My decorating style. My photography style.
