Hi! I'm Shannon, a right brained, empathetic people lover. Thanks for visiting my site. Photo sessions with me include laughter + controlled chaos. Serving the Chicagoland area and Bucktown neighborhood.
At the age of eleven years old, I received my first camera and have enjoyed being behind the lens ever since. I am a natural light, self-taught photographer and became serious about photography in 2003 after a trip to Kenya, East Africa.
I truly enjoy working with children and families and my success is due to photographing families as they grow from one year to the next. Beyond my many qualifications and consistent professionalism, I enjoy when clients become friends.
In 2013, one of my photos was selected as a "Top Ten Finalist" under Cutest Family category for a Tiny Prints competition. I also had a photo selected on Mpix's Facebook page as one of "13 of 2013 Toddlers." Most recently, I was interviewed by Voyage Chicago Magazine.
In 2017, I embarked on a career change from being a full time certified athletic trainer at a local high school for eleven years, to working with an organ procurement organization at Gift of Hope. My role as a Donation & Family Advocate consists of working with families on their hardest days to bring hope and light to their situation, through the gift of organ and tissue donation and saving lives.
April will be my 13th year in business and I'm looking forward to more years to come!
