-Summer Time Fun-

Summer time means pool time, and in this house we spend as much time outside as we can. We have a pool in our neighborhood that we use most of the time, but every once in a while we pull out the inflatable pool and enjoy some good old back yard fun.

Rainy Day

Rain, rain go away!
 Or not.  Ethan wanted to try out his new rain boots so I figured why not?

Fire boots and Superman for the win.

-Whitney and Kenny-

Yesterday I had the opportunity to do engagement photos for a dear friend of mine, Whitney. I'm so excited that I was able to do this for her and her fiance.  I've know Whitney through work for about 4 years now and she is a complete sweetheart, so its only fitting that Kenny is an absolute doll. They're such a fun and down to earth couple.

We headed over to the same barn and fields that I did Ethan's birthday photos at last year. It was overgrown from the spring but I think it made it only that much more beautiful.

-Busch Gardens-

Today we spent the afternoon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and had a blast!
Ethan and I have a seasons pass that way we always have something to do if we "get bored" it wears him out and we always have a good time.

A personal favorite, the teacups. We rode these about 5 times before we convinced him to move on.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to photograph Ethan's best buddy Aiden for his 3 year photos.   He was so excited to be at the beach that it took a while to get him to look at the camera ( and maybe a little bribery with a lollipop). 

I've taken plenty of photos of him in the past, but these might be some of my favorite photos of him.

-Love Family-

I have a few shoots that I'm in the process of editing but in the mean time thought I'd show some past photo shoots from the last few months. This is the Love family and now only do I get to take photos of their very cute little boy Aiden, but he is also Ethan's best buddy.  They asked me to do some "nontraditional" photos for the holidays and I love how many of them came out.

They wanted family photos that truly expressed their personality and I think they hit the nail on the head with their Bazinga shirts

So Tim has been home from Cuba for 2 weeks and during that time we've had a lot going on. Aubrey graduated from high school and we did a road trip to Michigan to spend time with family

-Guest Post From Aubrey-

Hi, this is Aubrey. Shannon gave me the opportunity to show off some of my own photos here on her blog. Since I graduated from high school this past Sunday, she and dad gave me a camera of my own that I can start practicing with and taking my own photos. Then I can be the best photographer ever like Shannon (I promise she didn't make me say that). They're not the best yet considering I've never had a camera other than my phone before, so don't judge me too harshly. I'll get better eventually. Until then let me know what you think!
Fun at the bowling alley

A few weeks ago I was luckily enough to be asked to take some photos of a coworkers daughter Sophia for her senior photos and I love how they came out. Luckily I only heard great things from her and her mom about the photos as well. I would take her photos any time, she made it so easy!
 We had such a blast and headed over the the beach since it was such a beautiful day out.

About two months ago I was able to fly to Cuba to visit my husband where he is stationed. It was a flight of many first- first time Ethan and I flew alone together, first time flying overseas, and my first military flight.
