I’m Shannon.

First and foremost, I’m a part time homeschooling, natural mama of 2 beautiful babes, Laiken (4) and Kora (1). I’m a lover of adventure, vegan donuts, a good workout, thrift shopping, hikes, essential oils, and what do ya know, the lake. When I’m not busy as hell juggling this business, and all the things you can find us wake surfing or paddle boarding. I grew up in water, swam competitively at age 5. I also grew up on Canyon Lake, fell in love on Canyon Lake, and now pass on the love of the water, nature and the importance of staying active to our babies.

My passion for photography began when I was very young. I’ve always been artistic and my favorite memories were going through our memory books at my grandmother’s house. I was awarded ‘most artistic’ in high school. I was on the yearbook staff, and some of my favorite memories in middle school included my best friends and the disposable cameras we would buy and max out every single weekend! I was the girl with pictures all over my walls, and man, that hasn’t changed! I bought my first DSLR in college with student loan money. I picked up jobs here and there along side of my studies. My dream was always to be an artist, and to live a more carefree lifestyle. My uncle supported my dream, while my parents continued to push me to work towards a more secure and traditional career. So I continued school to become a physical therapist. Then my son was born, and my passion for capturing intimate moments really took over me. I honestly didn’t fully commit to making my dream a reality, until my children’s father and I separated. Motherhood and the inspiration that has come with it has set my soul on fire, I’m extremely passionate about it, but also now I was forced into having to be a self sufficient single mother. My kids are my muse. They really taught me the true meaning of telling stories, and are the pick-me-up I need every time I’m feeling burnt out or uninspired.

I’m eternally grateful for the continuous support and inspiration from my family.
