photographer | wife | mom | animal lover
SO NICE TO MEET YOU!
My name is Shannon, I'm the face behind the camera.
I'm also a wife (and lucky to be married to the love of my life - a man I have known since I was ten years old), mom to a teenage daughter who is the light of my life, and I share my heart and home with three Border Collies who keep me on my toes, and have two Arabian horses who bring incredible joy to my world. I love coffee, camping, walking on a sandy beach and hiking in the mountains.
There are a few things I think I was born loving, because I can't remember a time in my life I didn't love them. Horses, dogs, and my family. Shortly thereafter comes photography. I remember, even as a young child, begging to use my dad's Pentax camera. I was fascinated with taking photos! Flowers, the family dogs, my aunt's goats, my uncle's horse - I still have many of these photos. I was exposed to beautiful, quality photography from a young age as my grandfather was an official photographer for the military and my dad always shot landscapes and documentary-style photos with professional-grade equipment. I guess it can be said I came by my photography passion naturally.
I purchased my first quality camera when in my twenties and practiced my craft by taking photos of my own horses and dogs. I had an Arabian breeding farm at the time and wanted photos of my horses that captured their true essence. In those days I shot film, and worked hard to hone my skills as developing countless rolls of film was expensive, and my patience (or lack thereof!) was tested waiting to see the results of my efforts. My skills evolved and others began hiring me to take photos of their horses and before I knew it, I had a photography business!
Fast forward twenty years and several cameras later, my passion for photography continues - and my business has grown, thrived, and enriched my life beyond description! Photography has allowed me to visit places I had only dreamed of, meet people who have become treasured friends, and capture countless precious and cherished moments along the way. I genuinely love photography. I can't seem to get away from it - even when on vacation, running errands, or just relaxing - my eye is drawn to all things beautiful and finds beauty in all things.
If you would like a beautiful moment in your life captured, please send me an email, text or give me a call.
