Newington Hartford Fairfield New Haven Mystic Connecticut Wedding Family and Newborn Photographer Shannon Sorensen Photography.jpg

Hi, I'm shannon and i like warm hugs.

New England born and raised, fisherman's daughter, appreciator of little everyday moments and believer of real over perfection. I'm a mother of two to Lil and Roo, and married my ruggedly handsome, geeky sweetheart (geekheart?) of 15 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 with a bottomless cup of coffee that I try to drink before it gets cold. 

I love musicals and it's not unheard of for me to break out in song at any given moment. I feel most alive near the ocean or in the mountains. I will always prefer fresh air to air conditioning and a fire in the fireplace to keep my toes warm. I enjoy going on adventures, but give me a hot mug of cocoa, a comfy blanket and my couch and I'm a happy lady. I prefer hugs to handshakes and never turn down dessert. My ladyheroes are Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling. Like, serious #squadgoals.

If you want to get to know me better, the best way to do that is to follow my Instagram and read the blog!
