that’s right…my 3rd redhead in a week! it’s like i won some kind of photography lottery:)
jayson was such a great kid to work with. he put up with me telling him how cute he was a million times and just smiled through it all.
he is just one of those guys that you meet and can tell right away that he’s a good kid.

thank you so much jayson for a great session! hope you have an incredible senior year! looking forward to see what the future has in store for you!

  • Kathy kusler

    Shannon, these are so absolutely AMAZING! You captured their quirky, fun personalities as well as their softer and not often serious sides. BEAUTIFUL pictures of a priceless pair!!

  • Gisselle

    OMG I love the theme of these photos!! Every one is absolutely gorgeous! These girls look like they had so much fun!

  • papa

    Beautiful photos of 2 beautiful girls. (Inside. And out.) !!!!!

  • rachel

    I LOVE these!!! So awesome, and so fun! Gorgeous, gorgeous photos!

  • What gorgeous ladies! This shoot is very FUN. I love the fishing ones. Too cute!

  • Tammy

    Shannon these are gorgeous! I love how well you captured these two and their fun relationship! They are so stunning and you did a wonderful job with this session!

  • I’m jealous of these images… I SOOO wish I had photos like this with MY best friend! High fives beauty. :)

  • I don’t even know where to start!!!! I picked so many faves! I LOVE the one of the kicking and splashing water. These two are GORGEOUS!!! Great job!!

  • This was the cutest shoot I have ever seen…… and then I saw the pink bunny pjs and now its for real the cutest shoot I have ever seen. These best buddies are beautiful! Love the theme and the scenery!

  • Oh my gosh, these are so cute. I’ve never heard of a best friend session before. I want one with me and my best friend!

  • I want to be friends with these gorgeous fun girls! lol They look like they laugh together ALL the time! You captured amazing light as always. SO GORGEOUS!

  • I LOVE the idea of a best friends session—I wish more people did that! The light in all of these is just so beautiful (no small feat in a forrest!). My favorite has to be the first one of them laughing sitting on the blanket; it’s too perfect. But the PJ shots and the ones in the lake kill me, too. Let’s be honest, these girls are lovely and every shot is great. :D

  • This looks like such a blast! I totally got a kick out of their pj’s. What a fun way to celebrate friendship. What fun memories! Beautiful images!

  • Keren

    Um….seriously the cutest session ever!!!! I wish I would have had a BFF session back in the day! LOVE the theme and the poses…just wonderful!!

ally
class of 2015

talk about a natural stunner….ally is gorgeous!! she has such an inner and outer beauty that shines. she is simply the sweetest.
and, um…..her hair?! to die for!! if she could bottle it and sell it i would be first in line.

ally said that she’s not a fan of pictures and dreads being in front of the camera, but i have to say,
i think she was born to be in front of the camera!! she was a dream to work with.

thank you so much, ally!!! i hope you have an amazing senior year! enjoy every second of it. xoxo
