Capturing you and your family as you are- the perfectly imperfect, the beautiful mess, this wonderful thing called life. Let’s tell your story…

“If I could give Shannon 10 stars, I would! She is a true professional and a master at her craft. You can expect a fun and efficient photo session with her, as well as friendly coaching along the way (trust me…take her coaching notes)! My husband and I used her for our maternity pictures and with confidence can say we will be returning many more times.” —Diana

“We are so very thankful for finding you. I wanted to tell you that my husband texted me from work today and said he saw the photos and started to cry. NOTHING makes him cry. Consider that a huge win! You are wonderful and we will definitely see you again in the future!” – Courtney
