"Shannon took my sons' newborn pictures and it is something that I will treasure forever. After giving birth to twins via c-section, I was pretty much bedridden for a couple of weeks and my husband and in-laws went in and Shannon directed the whole thing. So many beautiful backgrounds, and honestly, just angelic. She took the most marvelous, sweetest pictures of my boys. A true treasure."

"Shannon was such a pleasure to work with. We have a 3 year old who's very reluctant with taking pictures and Shannon made our whole experience so easy! Right after we saw our sneak peek photos, My husband and I were both like "Wow, that was so quick and painless when we took pictures. We walked around a little bit, stood at different places, and smiled and it was done... and all of our pics came out so beautiful!!" Shannon is so talented that way! We're definitely coming back for more!"

"We have been going to Shannon for the past 5 years. We have all these wonderful memories of our children because of her. She always goes above and beyond for us. I asked her if she could do an Alice and wonderland theme for my daughter's first birthday and she made all these different props from scratch and had all these unique and wonderful ideas! I couldn't have imagined anything better! I'm so glad she's found photography and so glad we found her! In our opinion, she's the best at what she does."

"Just completed a maternity photo shoot with Shannon. It’s the second time we’ve done photos with her and the results are spectacular. I tell myself it’s the models but suspect it’s the photographer!
She’s in Brentwood now and she found a perfect outdoor location for sunset photos. We couldn’t be happier with the results. Baby photos coming up next!"

"Shannon is simply incredible! We’ve been doing family photo shoots with her for about 5 years. We’ve done them both in her studio and at local parks. She has a real talent for making kids (and adults!) feel comfortable and laughing/smiling. She understands lighting - capturing great natural lighting and soft lighting. The locations she has picked have been outstanding - gems in our area! Her turnaround time is super fast (within a few days for mini shoots), and the photos she captures (both candid and"
