who is my photographer?

Ryan Shanley is an NGO and wildlife photographer who grew up in Dallas, Tx and now travels the world for photography assignments. She specializes in natural light and portrait photography and will be holding photography sessions for a limited time while she is visiting Dallas. After many requests from friends and family you can now schedule baby portraits at your favorite location or for a more comfortable experience, at your home. For young children, outdoor sessions are a great option to capture warm light with both individual portraits and group shots. At your home, we'll focus on those special moments like bath time, meal time and play time to capture your favorite smiles and giggles! Tossing food might be messy, but it sure is cute! 

A note from from ryan:

I work with children and their parents in 0-1% poverty territories throughout the world. Making kiddos comfortable with me and my camera is something my work depends on. I've seen photographers make the same mistake over and over again - taking portrait sessions too seriously and making kids nervous or anxious. I want your kid's to have fun, be comfortable and get real moments, not forced ones. If your kid loves cupcakes, bring them! I promise you, those images will end up being some of your favorites from the day. Remember, you are scheduling and ordering images because you want to capture memories, and real smiles, right? Then bring their favorite toy, bring their art easel (and a few changes of clothes!) and lets get you those memories.  I pride myself on casual sessions that don't have a time stamp. There is no 1-2 hour session standard, instead we shoot until we have the image, we take bathroom and potty breaks and I ensure everyone is happy. I am so excited to bring my skillset back to the Dallas area and bring portraits to families who want to capture every moment of their children's lives. Book quickly as I leave on assignment at the end of May! **I will be back in Texas in November. Please enquire about Holiday portrait sessions now to guarantee your space.

Baby Portrait Session

A portrait session is $850 and includes 50+ edited, high resolution, digital images to download and print at your leisure as well as two 8x10 matte finish prints that will be tubed and shipped directly to your home. There are no minimum buys - it's all included. Let us know what you need and we'll make it happen. 

These sessions can be in-home, in a casual and comfortable setting where the parents and baby are most comfortable or at your favorite outdoor venue. Most photographers do a 1-2 hour session, but we have as much time as we need. We can capture play time, bath time, feeding time and time outside if your little one likes fun in the sun. Change outfits, no problem!

We will talk through the appointment before hand so you feel comfortable with what's going to be captured. A $300 non-refundable initial payment is due at the time of booking to guarantee your appointment date. Your total costs include the photographer's time and talent, pre-shoot preparation, custom editing of your images and printing fees.
