Sweet Family of Three

Last week I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph a family.  They are dear friends of ours.  I was completely taken back when she asked me.  I am not a professional photographer, nor do I claim to be.  However, anyone who is around me long enough, witnesses my passion for photography.

The day came to photograph them and I was beginning to panic.  I wanted these to be good for them.  They are wanting to adopt another child and were in need of an updated photograph.  I studied up on poses, apertures, shutter speeds and lighting.  We decided on a outdoor setting.  This day happened to be exceptionally windy.  Not only that, there were fires close by that were fogging up the lighting.  No matter the mud on the shoes, or that their Son did not want to be a model, I am happy with the results.  It is a miracle I was able to do them all in manual mode as well.  Let me know what you think?


  1. I love them Shannon! You are the best and one of the sweetest persons I have ever met. Thank you so much for all your time, studing and for sharing your passion with us! Love you!

  2. Shannon!!! Look at you! You did such an amazing job with these photos. You may have to change that “not a professional” status to “going pro, baby!”.
    Beautiful work. 🙂

  3. These turned out great Shannon. Love the one with their feet. I’m a sucker for shots like that. 🙂 That and walking away photos. So cute. 🙂 You should definitely start hiring out your services.

  4. Kristin, it was an honor, really!

    Amy, you are too kind! Thank you so much!

    Shawn, you don’t know what it means to hear such words coming from you. Really?!

    Y’all made my day with your beautiful words. I am thrilled to have such generous friends in my life. 😀

  5. They all are excellent and I love the one with all feet.

    Love these, Shannon! They’re all great, but the one of their feet is my favorite too! Good job!

  7. How funny everyone likes the feet!! I know, I want to do one of our feet now. I have seen others with this photo and it is so special somehow, even though it doesn’t show their faces. Thank you for the very nice comments. I LOVE when people leave me comments!!! 😉
