Hi. I’m Shannon. My journey as a photographer began in 1997 when I took my first photography course as a high school student. It wasn’t until 2005, a few years after I graduated college with a marketing degree, that I began shooting some corporate projects and realized photography was my passion. By 2006, I was captivated by photographing children & babies, and in 2007, photography became my full time career.
It’s my personal ambition to provide each of my clients with exceptional images. During a portrait session, I pay careful attention to my clients’ personalities so that I am able to showcase their true self through my images. Some of my favorites have been captured in those unplanned moments when nobody thought I was going to take a picture!
On a personal note, I am married to my best friend, Joe, and we’ve been blessed with 3 beautiful children, Ashton, Cameron, and Jadyn. They are my world, and have brought me greater meaning and joy than I had ever imagined to be possible! Outside of photography, I love spending time with our recently adopted puppy, Rue, who’s quite possibly the biggest sweetheart I’ve ever met! I have a mild addiction to chai tea and am always up for an afternoon at a coffee shop…or a girls night with a martini in hand! I thoroughly enjoy traveling and seeing new places. If there‘s warm weather & a beach involved, you can count me in!
