baby isla | kalispell newborn photograper

Isla Jane
7 days old

oh this sweet little girl stole my heart!!! she has the most adorable cheeks, lips and baby pudge you ever did see!!
this little babe is the daughter of two elementary school teachers, so it was fun to throw that theme into some of the photos.









Isla’s grandmother passed away, but her mom wanted to incorporate her and her memory into the photos. One of her grandma’s favorite songs was “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and she always told them that when they saw a rainbow it was her smiling down on them…..






  • Giselle

    What a sweet story about the rainbow! I love how you incorporated it into the session. These pictures are adorable, great job.

    This pictures of Isla Jane are some of the most precious baby pictures we have seen. We particularly like the one of the nose and mouth – that is one of the most unique and beautiful baby pictures we have seen. Grandma Jane worked with me for several years and I know she would be so in love with this little one if she were still with us today. Congratulations to Sarah and Ross on the birth of this bundle of joy!

new logo | shannon hollman photography

i’ve been looking forward to a fresh new logo for a while and i am loving the final product.
i wanted something fun and colorful and i think Brittany nailed it! i am so in love with all she does.

Brittany with Brittany H Designs did such a wonderful job. all the elements (fonts, feather…) were hand drawn by her. completely one of a kind….LOVE!!!! Brittany is a past bride of mine….and one of my all time favorite weddings. you may remember her beautiful, smokey:)wedding. it was such a great day!

i have always been inspired by peacock feathers and i feel that they fit so well with my work. they are fun, colorful and represent so much pure beauty. i knew i wanted to incorporate it in my new branding….and who doesn’t love a little glitter and sparkle too!!

i’m still working on getting everything all updated…so bare with me a while:)but i am really excited about it all!!
be sure to check out all of Brittany’s amazing work. She is so so talented! and ‘like’ her facebook page so you can see all of her amazing work!!

2015 is going to be a great year!!!

2015 senior models | kalispell montana senior photographer

i am so excited for this year! it’s going to be a great one!
as the time is getting closer to welcome a new batch of seniors, i thought it would be fun to get my 2015 reps together and do a session. we had a great time!! i adore these 4 girls so much….and so so thrilled to have them be the face of shannon hollman photography!

you will being seeing a lot more of them as the year goes on. until then, here’s a bit of our cozy, montana session.

i am starting this new year with a new shannon hollman photography phrase “YOUR BEAUTIFUL IS BEAUTIFUL”. it has always been and will always be my goal to show each and every person just how beautiful they are….inside and out. i want them to see what the world already sees….their beauty within. along with that, the girls each came up with some of their favorite quotes about inner beauty and i incorporated them into the pictures. there is so much out there telling young girls how to look, dress and be….i want to show them that they are beautiful just they way they are.


***and be sure to check back soon for a whole look and logo!!***
