We hired Shey for our fall family photos this year. We have two very active toddlers, one of which was not in the best of moods. She was patient, kind and reassuring. She had an excellent way of interacting with the girls. We left the shoot thinking maybe we end up with one or two photos from the shoot that we would like given the girls' behavior. A week later we received this beautiful slide show set to music. There were so many photos she captured it was hard to pick from them! I have no idea how she managed to capture the joy and essence of our family given the challenging nature of the day. To say we were beyond impressed would be an understatement. We will definitely use her again in the future. The investment was so worth it. Her talent is beyond comparison. Thank you Shey for the gift of capturing our girls, we will treasure these photos for a lifetime.

“There were so many photos it was hard to pick from them! I have no idea how she managed to capture the joy and essence of our family given the challenging nature of the day.”

Shey is an amazing artist with exceptional talent! She has captured many special moments in our family's lives. She is fun-loving and our kids adore her. Shey gives a feeling of comfort and ease during her photo sessions, that translate to genuine moments, which can be hard to capture with young children. Shey uses natural light and has access to some remarkable locations to make your photographs look and feel unique. The love for her work really shines through in her photographs. I challenge you not to shed a tear when you receive your first slideshow! We couldn't be happier with Shey and will be working with her for years to come.

I highly recommend Shey Marin Photography. Her artistic talent speaks for itself in the beautiful photos that our family will always treasure, but I am most appreciative of her manner as she worked with my pre-schooler and newborn. She was patient, professional, and fun to work with, creating a positive experience for my whole family. The images that she took, captured my children's personalities in addition to the emotions of our family as we welcomed our youngest member. It has been a truly wonderful experience working with Shey!

Wardrobe Access: While newborn sessions are typically held in my studio in Frederick, MD, where I can access beautiful props, headbands, knit hats, blankets, and handmade, vintage items – I can also come to your home for a lifestyle newborn session. Both options will result in the same gorgeous imagery of your new baby!

Video: Oh, and did I mention that in addition to still images, I will document candid moments on video?! This bonus experience will provide you with a keepsake option that will bring you right back to your precious memories in a unique and refreshing way! (Can you tell I’m just a tad excited about video?)

Comfort & Creativity: On the day of your session, I’ll arrive and scope out the best light and locations for your shoot – choosing creative spaces to help you feel comfortable and showcase your personality. You can expect to be together for around an hour, capturing your family in their element.

Style: I’m glad you asked. When it comes to photography, my style is natural, vibrant, timeless, and modern. My goal throughout each session is to help you relax and be spontaneous! I want to catch the natural expressions of you being who you actually are. I love to see your children laughing, the pure bliss and excitement in an expecting couple’s eyes, and the sweet, sleepy yawn of a newborn. The candid moments in your life are the ones I want to record for you to keep and hold close to your heart forever.
