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.


So here’s what you can say that will make me giddy when I get to your house (& Thanks Mama G for saying IT ALL):

  • So I brought all these knit things…
  • I love this froggy.
  • I used to work at Anthropologie…
  • Do whatever!
  • I love color.
  • I want something different…
  • mmmm…yeah, no naked baby on a beanbag.
  • Use the squirrel!
  • Oh, yeah, that is all Anthropologie…
  • Go ahead, move it wherever!

It was so much fun! Here’s the sneak peek of baby FINN…& the rest of them are TO DIE FOR too! Yea!

Happy Monday!
