A COLLABORATIVE LIFESTYLE PHOTO SHOOT BY SHANNON KATHLEEN PHOTOGRAPHY FEATURING mary.so.contrary
3 weeks ago I received a private message on Instagram from a model beauty named Mary asking me if I was available that day for a collaborative lifestyle photo session. She just happened to be in the area visiting from Arizona. I inquired with her how she discovered me and she stated she found me through the hashtag #stpaulphotographer on Instagram 🙂 So, keep hash tagging people!! You just never know what opportunity may arise because of it 🙂
At first I didn’t know what to think because now a days you never know if someone is trying to trick you!! But, I did my research on her personal Instagram profile and she seemed legit 😉
We both took a risk meeting up … and to our delight, neither of us turned out to be a creepy man trying to catfish the other 😉
Mary wanted her session to take place in St. Paul, MN. She was looking to have images taken in a downtown setting and in a St. Paul neighborhood. I suggested Lower-town St. Paul, MN for our city shots and then the neighborhoods along Summit Avenue in St. Paul, MN
This girl was an absolute dream to work with!! We spent the golden hours of the evening walking around intertwining her beauty along with natures beauty.
