Be photographed. For your family. For yourself. Your family loves you and wants to capture you for all time. Your children will be older someday and portraits may be all they have of you. They will treasure them and know just how much you loved them. So, yes. Be photographed. For your family. For yourself.

Transformations

 

WHEN WE LOOK GOOD, WE FEEL GOOD

We are our own toughest critic, no doubt. As women, we find fault in many aspects of our appearance. It's time to revolutionize the way we see ourselves; to be gentle with ourselves and accept that we are who we are, even without hair and makeup. These before and afters are not meant to show how outwardly beautiful a woman can be, rather bring out her inner confidence and inner beauty because when she feels like she looks good, she becomes a confident version of herself.

FROM A CLIENT'S PERSPECTIVE

Jen Shannon never ceases to amaze me! Time and time again I have returned to Jen to capture many important moments in my life, including my wedding day and maternity photos. She has a talent for capturing memories with such elegance and creativity. The moments Jen has captured in my life truly reflect who I am as a person and have resulted in photographs that I am proud of—photographs that make me feel beautiful and comfortable in my own skin. I believe she is able to make so many women feel confident and beautiful because she truly sees the beauty that’s within them and is able to make it shine, not just through her creative lens but by taking the time to get to know every person she photographs. Because of this, I have developed a true friendship with her and look forward to all the special moments she will capture for me and my family in the years to come.

 
Initially, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was blown away. It felt like the ultimate day of grown up dress up. I felt so glamorous! I’ve had lots of professional photos taken but I’ve never seen myself that way before and absolutely loved how the photos turned out! I love the whole experience.

Jen is a great photographer and offers superior quality images. She gives directions very well, knows how to use light, and most importantly, makes me look good in every picture!

Before deciding to be photographed by Jen, I thought, “Hey! She’s really good!...Let me take this chance and be photographed by her.” It never hurts to have another picture taken of oneself. 

Since I was young, my dad always took pictures of me. I have a LOT of candid pictures in albums and digitally stored on computers. However, I never really had anything that focused on ME or who I really was—nothing professional. So, Jen fit me in her schedule. I was a little nervous, but I completely trusted her--I mean, did you see her work? I believe I was more nervous of how I would look or, to be blunt, look “too fat”.  Not to my surprise, she knew exactly what angles to shoot from, where to position my body, my arm, my face, my eyes, my expression—to get that perfect shot. 

Right from the beginning of the session, everything was so relaxed and chill. I had my hair and make up done professionally,  and I had a few snacks—I was STARVING when I got there due the hours of hustling beforehand to get myself prepared –but she had some munchies, thank goodness!!  

I brought my whole wardrobe, but she helped me narrow down my selection. We chit-chatted, and it was just like girls hanging out—but at the same time having my pictures taken. 

Anyways, the next day (or was it the same day??) Jen sent me a sneak peak. Wow, she was quick with the turn around time and her edit was amazing! I absolutely loved the picture she took of me that I immediately changed my facebook profile picture, instagram picture, etc etc.  I don’t want to sound vain, but, I look amazing and I got a TON of compliments on all the pictures she took.  To this day, that picture still sits on my husbands workplace for everyone to admire. 

When I look back at the photographs that were taken of me, it truly makes me feel amazing. She really knows how to capture ones’ beauty. Thank you JEN!

 

Jen Shannon is such a pleasure to work for and with ! She is definitely a master at her trade. Her extreme professionalism comes through in every project she works and always producing timeless images. I, myself, don’t prefer to be in front of the camera but when I had my session she was so patient with me and worked with me. In no time I was having fun and ready to do another session.

It’s amazing to see that many different pictures of myself and different looks. They’re just all very beautiful. She captured who I am.

Jen captured an amazing moment in my life that I will be able to now relieve and cherish with children and grandchildren. It’s one of those moments you look back and think, wow I really was blessed enough to experience that!
