storytelling photography

Hi, I’m Shannon

I’m Shannon, a small-town Connecticut photographer, artist, and writer, joyfully serving families and small businesses all over southern New England.

My work has evolved and changed over the years, but my driving purpose remains the same - to run a creative business, live a happy life enjoying my family, inspire others to do more of what they love, and create something that is meaningful and lasting.

My style is to photograph honest moments full of personality and emotion. My clients want more than just a pretty picture. They know that a photograph is more than just a photograph. It’s a glimpse into our lives right now, how we love each other, and how we stay connected through generations.

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". I would be honored to work with you to photograph beautiful memories of time spent with your most favorite people.

I create 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.

Maternity

Growing a baby is hard work, full of beautiful moments, like feeling those first little 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 sessions typically take place between 32-36 weeks, and can be done at home or at another location.

Newborns

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 is allotted and allows for ample time to feed, comfort and change baby as needed between photos. 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.

Families

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!

generations

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.

personal Brands
& 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!

Branding sessions feature a mix of lifestyle portraits, workspace and shop photography, your products (if applicable). They may take place seasonally (four times per year), monthly, or “one and done” (perfect for just starting out).

lifestyle portraits

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.

You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the songs you have heard, the people you have loved.
