Susie: San Anselmo, CA

Shannon is the entire package. She is so very personable, warm and professional. I was so comfortable with Shannon, I felt like she was part of our family. My girls were drawn to her and my husband actually had fun (surprisingly). When Shannon emailed me our gallery, it took about four pictures in our slideshow for the tears to start rolling. I can't express enough just how talented Shannon is; she is a true artist, her work captured such a sweet moment in time, pictures I will cherish the rest of my life.
