Children's Mini Session

So... normally, I hold back on my absolute favorite photo till after the parents see their Gallery. However, because I made the family hike from one side of Longwood Gardens to the other side just for this meadow shot, I have to, need to, want to, post this photograph. Beautiful Mama is pregnant and walking in heels because she rushed from work and super sweet Dad is carrying my props. The Star of the Show is just as happy and lovely as can be. The way the sun is creating a halo around her head, wildflowers in the background and her perfect pose and beauty just melts my heart. Thank you "V" Family for being such great troopers and hiking all that way just for my Meadow shot. I think it was worth it... Warmly, Shannon

Children's Mini Session

This is my second time photographing the "D" Family and the boys have grown so much! The kids were such troopers being that it was still a humid night and the parents were troopers as well when I pulled out the Ginormous lollipops! It was a blessing and a curse because it kept the kids in one place but they didn't want to let them go! ;-) I had a blast and I captured many smiles that evening! Enjoy the "D" Family! Warmly, Shannon

Office will be Closed for Vacay

I will be closing the office Saturday, July 3rd through Monday, July 12th. All emails and phone calls will be returned on Tuesday, July 13th. My DH, Joe, and I are taking a much needed break from reality. ;-) Please make sure all orders are placed before I leave. Otherwise, we will have to wait till after I return.
Thank you for your patience during this time!

And because I can't post without a picture- how about I post {3}? Admittedly, I have been really crushing on color photographs with my Newborns lately. And so, to change up my pattern, I am posting the Bare Baby Womb photos this time... {Sigh} Aren't they adorable? ;-) Enjoy! Warmly, Shannon

Exciting News: I'm being Featured!

It is officially 2 years since I started this adventure and I am so blessed to have met so many wonderfuly people along the way. My business is strictly by word of mouth. I do not advertise in publications, and so I have grown only because of such great people like yourselves spreading the word.

Well... one of the professional labs I use for my products contacted me about an Image Box I recently submitted. They would like to feature it at WPPI: Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. It is one of the largest vendor and training venues for Professional Photographers. You can find out about WPPI here clicking here to go to the WPPI homepage.

Now, I can only take partial credit. The template was professionally designed by Sarah Gourdie a designer and photographer but the images are mine! ;-) My images will be in front of thousands! of photographers. This is Hollywood for us Photographers where the biggest and brightest of the industry will be there.

Here is the Image Box recently designed and will be featured at WPPI

Announcing Mini Sessions

Well, I hope you are enjoying the nice sunny weather today! Seems like the rest of the week is going to be interesting with mix of rain and/or snow.

I have made a few changes for 2010. I have changed my Collection pricing to include more digital negatives and some of the Collections offer a print credit to use as the Client would like. I think this is working out nicely because the client gets to make more choices of what suits *your* needs.

I will also be offering Mini Sessions- permanently now. Mini sessions are $50 for a 45 minute session. Please note, Mini Sessions will be held on Fridays only. You will be shown 6-10 images in your online Private Gallery. This is perfect for: Pregnancy sessions, 6-9 month old, one year and 18 month old, toddler and just because you want to update your wall with a few new photographs. There is a $150 minimum order for Mini Sessions.

Just a note, April is Booked! If you are Pregnant and expecting, please contact me before your Baby arrives to book your baby's Newborn session. This ensures that I will be available when the baby is 3-10 days New.

And just because I can't post without a picture, here is our little boy: Remy LeBeau! ;-)
He is a Toy Poodle and we got him the day after Christmas when he was 8 weeks old. He is now 4 months old and he is such a Joy to have and super smart! He knows fetch, give, sit, stay, down, come and shake! Excuse the haircut- Mommy did the best she could with a wiggly, wild dog. ;-)

Newborn Session: Mister Brian, 10 days New

Meet Mister Brian, he was three weeks early but at 10 days old he was sleeping like a Champ (at least for me, lol) and was still really curly and moldable. I love the photograph of Mister Brian curled up in Mom's hands. So precious. I can say that about a boy right, being precious and all? lol Enjoy your sneak peek Mom and Dad and watch for for more Sneak Peeks. - Shannon
