About Us

Welcome to our page! We are so glad you stopped by.

Shannon and Lindsay are so excited to be living their dream as photographers, in this beautiful beach town they call home. Located in the Gulf Breeze/Navarre area of the panhandle, Sophia Rae Photography specializes in newborn, children and family photography — and everything in between!

Shannon and Lindsay are both stay-at-home moms with a long love of photography. They met about five years ago, when their sons played on the same T-ball team. Both of them always had their cameras in tow wherever they went, taking photographs of just about anything. Soon, they began setting up photoshoots for their own children. Before long, other people realized their talent and began asking them to take pictures of their children and families. Shannon and Lindsay quickly realized that photography was their calling, and they started a business together. They decided on the name Sophia Rae Photography, which is a combination of their daughters’ middle names. They thought this was a perfect name, because it combined the love of their children and their passion for photography.

Sophia Rae Photography has a passion for setting up fun and creative photoshoots, using your vision to capture just the right moments. Whether you are welcoming a new baby, or just wanting to create a lasting memory of your family, we would love to be a part of your experience. If you see something you like, or have a great idea that you can’t wait to have come to life, please get in touch with us.

We can’t wait to make memories with your family!

See you soon,

Shannon Gomes and Lindsay Schmerbeck
