joyfully serving new england families since 2010


Thanks for visiting here! I'm Shannon Sorensen, a New England newborn and family photographer. I grew up in Duxbury, Massachusetts, went to Emmanuel College in Boston and now live in Newington, Connecticut with my family. I spend my days photographing newborns and families, chasing my kids around the house and trying to finish my coffee before it gets cold. 

My photography style is very relaxed. I love making kids laugh and photographing your family interactions, showing the little things that make your kids and family unique. My favorite way to photograph newborns is in the arms of their parents.

My motto is be present, not perfect.

Keeping it real since 1983.

My favorite job is being mama to Lily and Andrew (we call him Roo), and being married Sean (going on 17 years together)! We travel home to Massachusetts as often as possible because we love smelling the ocean and time spent with grandparents. But most days you can find me in comfy pants, working from home next to an open window, trying to avoid stepping on Legos and old Cheerios. And still trying to finish my coffee before it gets cold.

Nothing worse than coffee that’s been microwaved 3 or 4 times…

I love musicals and it's not unheard of for me to break out in song at any given moment. I will probably ask your kids what their favorite song is and then sing it to them - Lily calls this “Mommy Jukebox”. I'm a creative soul, and when I’m not working on photography, I love crocheting, painting, singing and writing. I love shows like Parks and Rec, The Office and Brooklyn 99 because I love to laugh and life can get too serious some days. We root for the Red Sox, Patriots and the Hartford Yard Goats. My heart is most happy snuggling with my family in bed on Sunday mornings, or on the couch at the end of the day.

There’s no greater gift than simply being together.
