You can't help but simply love the documentary nature of lifestyle photography for the newborn season and beyond through your baby's first year. It is the most dream-like blessing of a time unlike any other life event and deserves to be captured for future generations in a professional yet gentle manner.
"Why do I love photography? Because photographs evoke emotion. Photographs tell a story. Because photographs capture a single moment and makes it last forever. Because all photographs are there to remind us of what we forget and often what we forget is what is most important. When you look at my work I want you to see what life is all about - the romance, the admiration, the compassion, the devotion, the laughter, and mostly the love." Quoted from Shannon
Shannon comes to us with a photography background of course. It all began many moons ago (wink) with her Nanna teaching her to use her old polaroid camera. I hear she was in trouble many a time for going through dozens of rolls a film a week! She ended up attending the College of Notre Dame of Maryland majoring in art with a concentration in photography and a very high interest in journalism. After graduating she was employed with The Aegis for several years and freelanced for the North County News, Patuxent Publishing Company, The B, and The Zone. While photographing at the paper she won several MDDC awards which prove her eye for journalizing your memories. She has since been a shooter for weddings and has held her her share of baby and family portraits before attending professional training with Rita at the studio and finally joining the team. She provides a perfect balance of lifestyle newborn photography as well as beautifully set up newborn poses.
We are thrilled and blessed to have her here and thankful for the passion and heart she is putting into her work with our Bitsy Baby clients who have already fallen in love with her.
