About Shannon

Hey! I’m Shannon, thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me. Before I ramble about my past, I’d like to share what is most important to me: sharing experiences and connecting with others. I am a storyteller at heart but what I am most interested in is your story.  My passion for travel, people, design and love of light has led me to this amazing career in photography. I am so incredibly grateful.

I grew up in a pretty area of Massachusetts on Cape Cod. My appreciation for photography started early while growing up on an east coast peninsula that is known for its gorgeous beaches AND snow storms.  I loved heading out with my camera and capturing the beautiful landscapes that surrounded me. Over time,  friends would accompany me on my adventures and that is where my worked started to shift toward portrait photography.

I’ve held a number of occupations  (paper girl, golf course beverage cart girl, flea market attendant, bartender, server and credit collections) but by far this career is the most rewarding. Twelve years ago, my love for art, food, people and opportunity overruled my love for sleep and I made the move to New York City.  It is here that I have perfected the art of offbeat dancing, mass consumption of coffee, and attempt to put avocado on just about anything. I can be found spending time at home with my three favorite dudes: James (my partner in whatever we dream up) and our two sweet tuxedo cats, The Professor and Mr. Chumley.   I feel laughter and love are key elements to true happiness, Jim Gaffigan’s stand up comedy is a staple in our home. And pancakes!  Together or separate…any hour.
