I am a photographer. I am a mother. I am a wife. But I’m not your average photographer. I offer lifestyle photography with a fresh and natural approach. Thank You!
My goal is to deliver images of real life that you will hold on to and treasure forever. I focus on real and raw emotion, straight from your heart. I work hard to help you feel comfortable and relaxed so that the resulting images are pure and you! I travel at least once a month to various cities around the U.S., so if you wish to have me swing by your town, let me know! I'm also available for loca
Hello friends! Looking forward to spring and summer here in Northern Michigan! I am taking a limited amount of new clients as I ease back into my business now that we have moved and started to settle into our new home! Feel free to reach out for pricing and scheduling! I can't wait to start capturing your family in this beautiful place we call home!
Wayne County, IN- I have a last minute opening tonight (Monday) for a shoot! PM me for details! It will be discounted from my usual sessions. I can do two mini sessions or one full session! Please share! I won’t be back again this season for sessions!
Hello friends! These are the dates available for sessions in the coming weeks. These will probably be the only sessions I do for the rest of 2017. I’m so excited for the new clients that have already booked me and for the support of those of you that I have photographed for years! ❤️
I can't take a break during fall! It's way too beautiful up here! ❤️ I hope I can meet some of you lovely Traverse City families in the coming month!
We would have never been able to get to know this next amazing young woman without Hannah's introduction and we are forever grateful! Rita, you are going to do incredible things and we are so blessed to have spent this past year as a recipient of the joy you share with all those who know you! ❤️
Okay, this is the final series of sneak peek's for this one. Hannah is a multi sport athlete and we did some photos of her volleyball stuff as well, but these ones for softball blew me away. Especially the black and white one with her gear on. What a strong and fierce athlete you are!!!
A few more favorites from
Hannah Reimsnyder's session! ❤️❤️❤️
Oh Hannah.... we have had the privilege of being in your life for a bit now but I don't know that I can ever properly express how grateful we are for the young lady you have grown into. You do so much for so many. Thank you for the honor of photographing you for your senior year. ❤️
For those of you that don't know, we have had an insane summer! We took a 3 week trip to Italy and then moved 7 hours from where we have been living in Indiana. We now reside in Traverse City, Michigan! It's dreamy up here and I am excited to start taking clients here when the time is right!
Before I left I was able to capture several seniors before their last year of high school got under way. I will be showing you some of my favorites from their sessions over the next few days! First up, Matthew Moore! This is part one of his session and we will get together for part two sometime this fall!
Welcome to the world, Mr. Brody K! I love this family and this little man is oh so sweet!
Welcome to the world, Mr. Brody K!
It's not too late to sign up your 2017-2018 senior for their senior experience with me! I have a few openings left and would love to chat! So much is included in my package for these sessions, including over $700 in extra's. I love doing these and am always honored to capture this time. ❤️
I'm so excited to be offering this unique session opportunity!
I hope you all get to be this relaxed this weekend! Make the most of it!
One more gorgeous sneak peek (well for you all! She had all of these Wednesday) from this session before I call it a night. I love the simplicity and focus that this style of images bring to my subjects. I had SO much fun with Emily and her little girl. I will be offering milk bath sessions for maternity and mommy and me at a special price very soon! I have more info to share coming soon on this page but if you want to chat more about it, email me at [email protected] and I'll happily share!
I tried something new last week and LOVED how it turned out! I am so grateful for this gorgeous momma and her willingness to trust my vision.
There is always that one kid....haha! Never worry about how your children are going to behave at a session. I have seen it all! Most of the time from my own babies! Still booking for 2017 and until Friday, if you are a past client of mine, there is a special deal available for you! Email me at [email protected]!
This gorgeous session from the end of January is headed out to my amazing client today. This is like the 6th or 7th session I have done for them and I love every single one of them. Thank you for always allowing me this honor.
Can you believe this was in January??? Outside in the middle of an Indiana January?!?! I'm so glad we waited to do Addison's 3 year old session a few weeks later than planned!
Would not mind going back here!
If you are looking for a last minute gift for someone, I have gift cards that you can use towards sessions with me next year. I'm only doing 25 sessions total next year and I have half of them reserved right now. If you want to do a session with me but cannot pay the entire thing right now, a non refundable 50% deposit is due now for the $450 session and the rest can be covered next month or February. I get that it's the holidays and things are a little tight. Don't let that hold you back from reserving your spot for next year!
2017 UPDATE AND BOOKING INFO- Hello friends! I'm kind of casually bringing this to everyone's attention rather than doing a huge announcement. In the coming year, my family have a lot of travel plans (yea!!) and I have discovered that doing 30 sessions for example in a 2 month time frame (my fall this year) is a bit crazy as a mother of 4. As a result, next year I am only doing 25 local, full sessions for the entire year at $450. As of Friday, December 9th, half of these are gone! No mini sessions will be available unless I get bored and find myself with a ton of time on my hands. I will also only be doing one weekend a month of sessions. As the babies get involved in extra activities and my husband's business explodes (in the best way), we are finding how valuable our weekends are for our our sanity as a family and I need to be more protective of that time for us. Please know that I wish I could do this more full time and I look forward to being able to do that as the babies grow. As a momma of four, 6 and under, I am aware of how fleeting this time is and I really want and need to be more singularly focused. I love and appreciate all of the support you have given me over the years and I hope that my amazing clients will stick with me through this stretch of time as well. To book, email me at [email protected]. and I will help you get into the schedule and ensure that we can spend some time capturing your family in 2017. Thanks so much!!

Now on to some personal editing beings I am 100% caught up on all other stuff until this weekend's sessions.
I'm not very good at resting when I'm supposed to be.....another gallery done. I'm on fire today!
Another session wrapped up and sent out! I asked Matt if he still willingly let's his momma hug him and he said, "Well sure!" Don't ever stop Matt! Your momma loves it!
I am working on getting all of my client's their images by Thanksgiving! Love this 3 month shot with little Lincoln and her beautiful momma! This gallery is headed out as we speak and one already went out earlier today. Just a few more to go and I am caught back up!
Be sure to "like" Shannon Aikin Photography to see more from this session and others!

Because you need the Christmas card photo done too!
Wahoo for another session finished and out in a week's time!
