I photographed Shannon and her sister and their nieces last fall. I was so excited when she contacted me about doing her senior photos! Shannon and I have something in common: homeschooling. This definitely puts us in a minority, but I wouldn't trade my homeschool experience for anything.

I love to work with homeschoolers. I know we may miss out on some things, but I love to hear about their experiences and interests. Shannon is preparing to graduate high school in May as part of the class of 2022. I'm so excited for her! I felt very blessed to help her and her family celebrate her accomplishment with senior photos.

Shannon chose the Ramsey House in Knoxville, Tennessee as her location. This location was a first for me, but it was absolutely lovely. The historic home was absolutely beautiful and we timed the session so well with the light.

Shannon's family had a photo of Shannon and her older sister Emma from when they were little that they wanted to recreate. I didn't get to see the original photo, but I loved the sentiment. The hats were from the original photograph and so very cute! This is their updated photo:

Shannon also wanted to bring her 9 week old corgi puppy name Suki. She told me the dog was named for the beloved Gilmore Girls character. However, the family chose to spell her name "Suki" which is a Japanese name meaning Beloved. That's one lucky pup!

Shannon loves to read. She told me she particularly enjoys Lord of the Rings. It didn't seem right not to get some photos of her in her natural environment.

There's a certain magic in books - particularly within the fantasy genre. I wanted to give her a photograph with a bit of digital magic. I told her to close her eyes and trust me. All you need is a little faith, trust, and pixie dust, right?

I hope this photo serves as a reminder of the magic of stories. I love fiction, but the most exciting story we get to live is our own! I love being their to document the stories of my client's lives.
