Brooklyn, New York-based family lifestyle and kids photographer


I am a pet loving Brooklyn resident of 15 years, when I am not in the city you can find me curled up with a book  by the coast or chasing a winter storm for fresh snow. My clients easily become friends. My favorite clients see the importance of documenting life and celebrating their love and connection. 



We had a darkroom in my first home. Although it was many years later that I discovered the joy of photography, I vividly remember the magic of prints developing right in front of my eyes.  My professional experience spans 15 years in the commerical photography industry. I've traveled the world and worked on some amazing assignments. It's been a wild ride, so many stories. (exciting and at times humbling...more on that later.)  

 In 2014, I decided to put all my energy towards family and children's photography.

Client Reviews

I can’t say enough about what a positive experience working with Shannon is. She’s incredibly easy to connect with and puts you instantly at ease, turning what could be a rather stressful endeavor (wrangling children for family photos) into a relaxed hang out session. She’s patient with children and wonderful at engaging them, and had taken some of my very favorite images of my children ever - not forced smiles, but beautiful portraits that somehow capture them exactly as my heart sees them. I treasure the moments she’s been able to capture for us, and look forward to working with her to help tell the story of our family for years to come.

I have never had photos that I cherish so much as the ones Shannon has taken for us. Honest, real, organic images that capture us just as we are. Shannon makes it easy to be yourself in front of her camera. We live several states away but Shannon is worth travelling to for such invaluable treasures. Adore her and her work!

Shannon spent three days with our family during a typical stretch of summer. A brief moment in the chronology of our young family was beautifully captured. We treasure the images that came from our time together and have made great use of the photos as family gifts, cards and for home display.
The hallmark of Shannon’s artistry was her ability to seamlessly be a guest with our family while practicing her craft with grace and precision. This was not a typical staged family photo shoot with poses and timed smiles. Rather, it was us as we were, living our life and enjoying eachothers company. Our children (3+4 yrs. old) were very comfortable with Shannon. Her warm personality and unstaged approach put us all at ease for incredibly natural and expressive images.
We look forward to having Shannon return to our home on Martha’s Vineyard this summer.
