“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”

Hello and a warm welcome! I'm Shannon, a photographer and storyteller with a camera, and I'm eager to give you a more comprehensive glimpse into who I am. My photographic journey, which began in early 2021, has become a dynamic and indispensable part of my life, transcending the realm of a mere hobby to a profound and vibrant expression of my identity.

Returning to the enchanting New Orleans area in the Fall of 2021, I am on the lookout for remarkable individuals and families to join me on this creative adventure. Photography, for me, is not just about capturing moments; it's about turning them into timeless visual stories that resonate with the soul.

On a personal note, I recently tied the knot in November 2022. My home is a lively one, shared with three delightful dogs – Penny (12), Dixie (3), and Mohawk (2) – as well as a charming cat named Z (3). Beyond the lens, I have a passion for exploring zoos wherever I go, and travel is a constant source of inspiration for my visual storytelling.

Having grown up all over the United States, I've lived in six states so far, each contributing its unique flavor to my perspective. And I'm excited about the prospect of adding more states to that list as time continues on. This diversity in experience fuels my creativity, bringing a rich tapestry of influences to my work.

When I'm not immersed in photography, you might find me on FaceTime with my adorable nephew, Makaio, creating heartwarming memories from a distance. And if that's not the case, I could be found indulging in a bit of binge-watching, catching up on the latest shows and movies on Netflix.

Lifestyle photography is where my heart truly lies – capturing the heartwarming embrace of family moments, the romantic allure of couples and engagements, and the grandeur of weddings. It's not just about taking pictures; it's about creating art that resonates with your soul.

So, let's embark on this visual journey together. Let's create not just photographs but cherished memories that will be immortalized through the art of photography. I am genuinely excited about the prospect of collaborating with you and capturing the unique magic that makes your story special, drawing inspiration from the diverse tapestry of experiences that life has woven for me across different states.
