Eugene, Oregon family photographer: Lori, Scott, and Samantha


These pictures are from a family photography session I did back near the beginning of December. Lori, Scott, and Samantha came to the studio for some long overdue family photos. They hadn’t gotten new family pictures since Samantha was just a little thing, and I’m so glad they asked if I could help them with bringing their photos up to date.

Eugene, Oregon children's photographer: Harbor is FIVE!


I can’t believe my niece is five years old! Seems like yesterday I was doing her newborn pictures. How does time go by so fast? I’ve done a baby and child photography milestone session with her every year near her birthday and it is always so much fun! She is the cutest thing ever, and just gets more adorable each year if that’s possible.

Eugene, Oregon newborn photographer: Welcome Alivia!


Wow. It has been a crazy time these last few weeks. I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since I posted on the blog! It’s been quite the journey, and things have been changing so fast I can hardly keep up.

Eugene, Oregon Newborn Photographer: Welcome Cameron!



 Ali, Pete, and big sister Hudson brought new baby brother Cameron to my studio about a week before Thanksgiving. Newborn photography is my absolute favorite, so it’s always a pleasure to welcome a tiny new client to the studio. Another reason to give thanks. What a beautiful little family!

Steps being taken by Shanna Chess Photography during the Covid-19 pandemic

Dear clients and potential clients,

At Shanna Chess Photography, safety is my main priority at all times, including flu season and during this pandemic. Because I work closely with vulnerable clients including newborns, small children and pregnant women, I would like you to know that I am not taking the current coronavirus outbreak in Eugene lightly. I am sure you have concerns about remaining safe and healthy at this time, too.


Eugene, Oregon baby and child photographer: 6-month mini with Hadley!


Hope you’re all staying well and healthy! It’s a bit of a crazy time right now, but I’ve loved continuing to see my clients and know that they are happy and thriving. Little miss Hadley came to my Eugene, Oregon photography studio near the middle of November for her six-month mini milestone photography session. I was so excited to see her again!

Eugene, Oregon family photographer: Fall Family Photos with Natalie, Matt, Lorelei, and Rosalie


I did this family photography session in mid-November—which feels so long ago! We had the most beautiful fall last year, with warm sunny days lasting all the way through October, and we were only just starting to think about winter when we took these photos. Now it feels like winter has lasted forever and I’m so ready for spring! I thought it was here a couple of weeks ago, but the weather has turned cold and gray again. Oh, well. Hopefully soon!
