Denay Shook Photography

Proud wife + mama with a love for documenting life and capturing emotion. Sunrise + sunsets are my jam. I'm a creative who will never stop dreaming. Most days you will find me drinking all the coffee and wrangling my crew.  My husband and I are modern day DIYers living for the next project. Our life is a beautiful mess and I just want to share it with the world through pictures. I want to tell your story too! Can't wait to meet you!


It seriously started as just a dream. I dreamed of being able to capture beautiful images of our first born. I would spend all night online looking up tips and tricks and trying to master my camera. When my second child was born I had just graduated with my Bachelors degree and then the second dream started. I dreamed of a way to be able to be there for them during the day, but still hold on to my dream of owning a business and taking beautiful images. That is how Denay Shook Photography was born. Just out of wild dreams. Dreams at the time I had no idea how to make happen. I feel so blessed that this my reality and I truly pour my heart into every image I create. I feel so blessed each and every day <3 

How it all began...

about us


-Allie i.

Absolutely blown away by the beautiful pictures taken by Denay Shook Photography for our son's first birthday! Pictures with a one year old can be a very stressful experience for a parent, especially when you want an outdoor session at sunset in the beginning of February. Denay was such a pleasure to work with and we are IN LOVE with every single picture from our session. Looking forward to many more family sessions with Denay Shook Photography!!

Denay is fabulous from start to finish! She helps me choose all the outfits for me and my family which is the hardest part for me! Her turn around time is pretty fast and she captures some of the most beautiful candid photos!

We've chosen Denay to take our family photos several times now. She is kind, professional, and incredibly patient and understanding with little ones. Not to mention, her images are beautiful and convey her passion for her work. We are so grateful to her for capturing precious moments of our family and highly recommend her!


My pictures turned out amazing! Just what I was wanting! She did a great job working with my young daughters-even my 2 yr old who wasn’t into taking pictures! Would highly recommend!

-Cyndi f.

Denay really put her heart and soul into making my pictures perfect! She really listened when I told her I didn't like certain angles and she stayed away from those! She has done two shoots for me. One maternity shoot and the other was my son with Santa! She captured both of the special moments perfectly and now we will have them forever! Denay is also very personable and makes you feel super comfortable when shooting! I really enjoyed both of my sessions and so happy I chose her!

Family Sessions ( immediate family )- a perfect way to document your family at any time of the year! This also includes mommy and me and daddy and me sessions.

Milestone Sessions - Milestone sessions are sessions to document a certain age or season in your childs life. The most popular milestones are sitter sessions, 6-9 month sessions, one year sessions and yearly coming of age sessions to document your child as they get older.

Senior Sessions - Perfect for all graduating seniors whether it be high school or college.

Couples - This would be the package you select to document your engagement or just to take captivating images with the love of your life.

The most popular session.Lifestyle Newborns take place in your home or in my white shiplap shooting space in my home. Can be done anytime within the first 2 months of babys arrival. There is no posing in these sessions. I wrap the baby or put the baby in a onesie and we document you all together. The session takes about an hour. It is very relaxed. We don't worry about putting the baby to sleep we just document them as they are. This package includes 15 digital images and a print release. Additional images are $25 each.

 Clients will come to my indoor shooting space in my home. The session can 2-3 hours. I will wrap the baby and focus on getting the baby to sleep or as calm as possible. Traditional family portraits will be taken and then I will wrap the baby and place them in three set ups. My style is still not like every newborn photographer. I am still more relaxed and REAL with my posing. It is still on the lifestyle side, but a bit more traditional.  This package includes 15 digital images and a print release. Additional images are $25 each.
