Wistful. Charming. And heart-meltingly adorable.

Imagine having those images. The ones that make you ooooh, ahhhh, and make you squeal with delight.

In short: you want beautiful photos that show off your colossal love for your child.

Maybe this is you…

You want to remember this ever-so-fleeting time while your child is small (The days silently tiptoe away when we’re not looking).

You want professional, finished images that you can share and keep forevermore

You wonder if any photographer can really capture those drool-worthy images of your baby or child because he can never sit still or be quiet

You want your photo sessions to be easeful, stress-free, and fun

You’re in luck – because we know what you mean.

 I’m Shawn. (Pleased to meet you!)

I’m the photographer behind the camera of Paper Heart Pixie Photography. For the last 8 years, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the most delightful newborns, babies, children, and expectant mothers.

You could say I’m a visual storyteller and a keeper of memories. I’m a very sentimental soul, I notice the subtle, fleeting details in life’s moments. I’m a dreamer and wear my heart on my sleeve.

As a photographer, I help you hold on to your memories.

I started my business when I was a stay-at-home mom to my 2-month-old daughter. I was yearning to do something different, something that really sings to my soul. I’ve always had a passion for photography, something I’ve been doing since I was 15 years old and eventually went on to study Photography in College.

I thought…

How could I teach my daughter to follow her dreams if I couldn’t do it myself?

I took the leap. That’s when Paper Heart Pixie Photography was born.

Today, I wish I could have my own professional portraits of my daughter when she was a newborn. I would have captured her round toes, full pouty lips, and fuzzy ears. (Yes! She had fuzzy hairs on her little ears.)

That’s what I want for YOU (and for all parents on Planet Earth, frankly) – to have beautiful images of your children that you can carry with you as a keepsake heirloom. I want you to relive those heart-melting moments – the ones that make you feel warm and toasty inside, the ones you live and love today. (Because soon…they’ll be asking for your car keys.)

My goal is to photograph your babies as they are – whether they’re daring and mischievous or observant and shy. I love to connect with my clients so I can capture their little souls.

Here are a few more things about me:

Capturing newborns is a true art and should be practiced with maximum safety. I’m lucky to have mentored under four of the top newborn photographers in the world

I share my life with my awesome husband, my precocious daughter, and my fur baby in upstate New York

I’m a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and the International Newborn Photography Association (INPA) 

I’ve been published and featured on several blogs and online magazines like Offspriing magazine and Give Me Astoria, Click HERE.

When we work together, you’ll have a special, unique, and fun photography experience. You’ll also have beautiful, timeless images that you keep as a treasured heirloom. I’m excited and privileged to be part of your story.
