"Shannon did a stunning job on my personal brand photos and headshots. Her entire process is incredible - she digs deep with you prior to the photo session itself to help you (and her) get crystal clear on your brand aspirations and how that may translate visually. 

She really taylors the process to you, knows which shots are most important to you, helps find a great location; the whole 9 yards.  And then - the photos themselves are gorgeous! I'm so thrilled with the end result and would recommend Shannon to anyone!"

Shannon was amazing to work with for my brand photos!! She took the time to understand what I was looking for, found a perfect location, and took some great photos.
