SAMANTHA SHANNON PHOTOGRAPHY

The last time I saw this family, their sweet little girl quietly cuddled in to her mama the whole time. It doesn’t feel like that long ago, but this year she was the most active, energetic, and talkative kiddo! It’s such an honor to see families year after year and I just love seeing how […]

It really is the BEST part of my job when wedding clients come back to me a few years after the wedding for family photos!  By the end of a wedding day, I always feel such a connection to my clients–they’ve become friends as we’ve walked through the wedding planning process together.  So when I […]
