Beautiful Family…and an announcement!

I can’t believe I never blogged this gorgeous family. They are great friends of ours and I always look forward to their sessions b/c they are completely laid back and go with the flow…they tell me to do my thing and that’s just what I do–and they are ALWAYS so grateful. LOVE them to pieces!

Ok ok…NOW onto my announcement!!

Hallmark (yes THE Hallmark…as in greeting cards!) came across their beautiful images and contacted me. Seems they wanted to purchase their images, along with some others, to use for advertising!!! My first reaction was…huh? is this a joke? Once I got over the initial shock, I was SO excited! Beyond excited, I was ecstatic!

I wanted to share this with all of my clients, friends, family and those who follow my work. I am humbled, honored and blessed to call this business my own. I love it. Yes, even during my busy season. :) This “job” has enabled me to be home, be flexible and still be present for my family. I couldn’t have built this business without the help and support I receive daily from my husband (really, I wouldn’t be in business if it weren’t for him!), my family, my friends and my fans. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to share my passion with you, and for supporting me in it. xoxo

Now onto their beautiful images that you may see online at Hallmark OR in the stores!

    You definitely have a gift, no doubt. And your subjects are obviously at-ease. Without such a pairing these couldn’t be as amazing as they (as well as your other images) are.
    Congratulations Shannon. <3
