Hi, I’m Shannon
A photographer, artist, writer + creative soul based in central Connecticut. I seek the beauty in the everyday, even the messy stuff. Especially the messy stuff. I drink too much coffee and spend my days annoying my kids by singing showtunes. My favorite place is anywhere near the ocean and with my family.
& small business
Personal Branding Photography is a style of storytelling that breathes life and authenticity into your online presence with cohesive, branded photographs. This custom photography collection tells the story of who you are, and reflects the story and message of your brand or business. By sharing more of you and the “why” behind your business, you form deeper connections with your fans, and they become customers who know, like and trust you, and want to support your business!
Introduce your audience to your face and your personality. By sharing a bit of who you are, you develop a relationship with your clients and fans and help them to get to know who you are, they like you for who you are (not just what you do or make), and trust your personal knowledge and expertise in your area of business.
workspace, studio or storefront
Invite your audience into where you work, whether it is a home office, brick and mortar shop, studio space or your favorite corner table in your local cafe. Give us a glimpse of where you spend your days, meet with clients, sell to your customers and grow your business.
Showcase your products in their best light. This may be on a white or styled background, a display or styled groupings. Product photography will elevate your e-commerce site, your social media channels, and give your customers a clear picture of what they are purchasing.
business is personal
Keep your audience surprised and delighted with imagery and graphics that further convey your brand message and make your story an exciting and entertaining experience to follow!
time well spent
From the foggy, early days with your newborn, to summers at the beach, ice cream adventures and Saturday morning pancakes at home, we're right in the midst of "the good old days". This family time is a gift that comes and goes in the blink of an eye, and I would be honored to present you with beautiful memories of time spent with your most favorite people.
I love creating family photographs that are intimate, candid, fun-loving, emotional and artistic. I look for moments that are honest, a bit raw, and tell your unique story of who you are and the people you love. From the big laughs to the quiet moments in between, I will spend time before your session getting to know you and family dynamics, what you love most about each other and how you love to spend your time together.
Growing a baby is hard work, full of beautiful moments. Feeling those first kicks, the planning and anticipation of how your family will change. Whether its your first or fourth, maternity photos are a special way of remembering this time in your life that goes so quickly (even though by the end it feels soooo slow). Maternity photography typically takes places between 32-36 weeks, either documentary style at home or more portrait style at a special location.
An at-home newborn session allows you to remain in the comfort of your home, surrounded by everything you may want or need. Three hours allows for ample time to feed, comfort and change baby as needed. Newborn sessions are booked based on your due date, and will be confirmed to take place within the first 14 days after baby is born. Sessions include relaxed newborn portraits and snuggly family candids.
Family documentary sessions are a fun and candid way to capture family time and what that means to you. It can be as simple as hanging out at home, playing games, cooking pancakes, and capturing a day-in-the-life; or a planned adventure to the beach, park, zoo or your favorite local ice cream shop! Family sessions become a fun tradition to document how your family grows and changes each year!
Celebrate a milestone birthday, anniversary, family reunion, or simply spending time together with a generations session. We’ll capture the entire extended family together, individual family units, couples, kids with their grandparents or great grandparents, and you’ll have special heirloom photographs for all the generations to enjoy for years.
I’d love to hear from you! Use this form to inquire about booking a session for your family or business!
