“Shannon has been documenting our life for the past 11 years. She started by taking our Just Married Announcement pictures, which captured both of our personalities so well. She made us feel comfortable and nothing ever felt rushed, staged or awkward - it was a great experience. So much so, that we called her again each time one of our three children were born to come and document what our new lives looked like. She is great with kids and really takes the time to get to know each of us and makes my children feel special. This makes it a lot easier when she has her camera out, they just act themselves and ignore the camera. My 2 1/2 year old calls Shannon her best friend. I would recommend her in a hear beat. I look at the pictures she has taken of my family and am filled with emotion. I wouldn't have those sweet/crazy moments captured if it wasn't for her.”

“My family and I had such a wonderful experience a few weeks ago with the talented ShannonRoddy! We booked her for a family photoshoot (to celebrate baby Noah's 1st birthday) and not only was the time we spent with her so organic, unaffected, and natural but as we'd expected, she captured us being us: eating breakfast, playing, reading, laughing, taking Pax pup for a walk.. And this elegant acknowledgment and 'consideration' so to speak of our daily family happenings is reflected in the spectacular photos...beautiful and lovely and heartwarming..we so look forward to next year and Family Photos Volume 2 with Shannon.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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!”
