I love this girl to pieces. So proud to share my niece's Senior Photo Session. So happy that her Mama is my sister and I get the privilege to be her Aunt. These moments where a gift to share with them and with me and y'all as well! So lovely and so proud of her! Ciara you are a gift to all of us. Keep that beautiful smile! oxxo Aunt Shannon
The Parker Family was delightful. Set on Hannah's Mamma's stunning property we just had a beautiful time. So happy to share these portraits with you. Knowing that this was family land made this session so much more special and any time I could suggest to clients to do this I sure would! This lovely little family melted my heart!
The Kist Wedding was everything rolled up into one amazingly beautiful moment! Rain and Storms and Wonderful Joy and Sunshine, a stunning Barn wedding and reception location at Dodson Orchards in Fredericktown, Missouri and lovely friends and family to share every moment with! Benjamin and Katie were just gracious and beautiful and a memory that I'm so thankful to have shared in and so happy to take with me into the rest of my life. Honored to have been a part of this day and so blessed to share their Wedding Story with you all here now. Please click the images to see the larger more beautiful And congratulations Ben and Katie!

Because your life is a Beautiful life.
Phineas and I go back to when we were kids. I cherish him and count him as family. He's my best friend and I have prayed many times that he would find someone that would love him and enjoy him and his boys the way he needs. So thankful he is finding that in Shannon and with her boys as well. It was my honor and pleasure to create these images. My heart is deeply full. Please click the images to see the larger versions.

Possibly the most wonderful engagement session ever. Whitney and Ryan were adorable and lovely and willing. I had to make myself stop. We planned the session to include the sunset but I had no idea how wonderful it was going to be. If overshooting is a true thing, I'm the queen lol. I just couldn't help myself. So honored and privileged to get to share these with you all. Congratulations Whitney and Ryan on getting married! So so happy for you both! ~ Shannon Edwards

"Because your life is a Beautiful life!
This beautiful baby boy was a blessing to photograph in so many ways. The story is their story so I'll refrain but know that God used this moment to bless all of our hearts and this photo session will forever be a part of my story as well. Love conquers all.

Every baby is a blessing from God and this baby may be double :) Thank you Kyson for such a beautiful morning with you. I'll cherish it my whole life.
Jayna and Ryan are a beautiful couple. It was my honor and privilege to get to do these precious soon to be "Baby Makes Three" images. During the session I called Jayna and Ryan "Mom and Dad" and it was adorable when they realized it was their first time hearing that. Pure joy to my heart. Two lovely people who fell in love offering this world a beautiful piece of their story. What more could a photographer ask for? Adoring this session and this couple. I am so happy to share these images with you all as well.

Roman just makes the world a better place. I am so in love with this little boy and so blessed that I get to be their family photographer. His Mama and Daddy had their third session with me at our house in the woods near the lake and it was a beautiful day for such a wonderful time! In my heart I truly believe little ones just need to be themselves. Some children are great at sitting still but most are not. When Roman arrives we know he's in charge and we go with it. I wouldn't have it any other way! I hope you all enjoy his session as much as I did creating it! And props go to his Mama for making the adorable kissing booth you see here! :) She always brings something divine to the sessions!
This one was over the top! With his birthday being close to Valentine's Day it was perfect!
