Oh, hello!


I'm Shannon, a small town New England photographer, writer and maker, and I'd like to welcome you to my creative space, my little corner of the internet where I dream big and try to finish my coffee before it gets cold. 

I've been photographing lovely faces and families throughout Connecticut and greater New England since 2010. I love what I do, which makes going to work each day in my "corner office" of my living room a joy. My style is to focus on the everyday moments that tell your story; how you live and how you love. My motto is be present, not perfect.

Keeping it real since 1983.

New England born and raised, fisherman's daughter, appreciator of little everyday moments and believer of real over perfection. My best job is being mama to Lil and Roo, and married my ruggedly handsome sweetheart of 16 years. We've planted roots in central Connecticut, but part of my heart will always belong on the coast of Massachusetts. I'm a photographer, artist, writer and creative soul. Most days you can find me in comfy pants, working from home next to an open window, trying to avoid stepping on Legos and old Cheerios.

I love musicals and it's not unheard of for me to break out in song at any given moment. I enjoy refinishing furniture, fiber arts, pretending I can garden, Parks and Recreation, the Boston Red Sox and the Hartford Yard Goats, biking, hiking, camping, the smell of campfires, any beach anywhere, and snuggling with my family in bed on Sunday mornings if the kids aren't jumping on us demanding breakfast.

And because I am a multipassionate person, I also run two handmade shops, LILROO and The Salty Mama
