My name is Shannon and I am a natural light photographer in Northern Illinois with 10+ years of professional experience. I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this job of mine!  My main goal in every session is to provide my clients with images bursting with love and emotion that will be treasured for generations to come!   

The Studios

The indoor studio is located above an adorable gift shop in downtown Richmond.  There is over 2,000 square feet of beautiful natural light that contains lifestyle setups as well as backdrop setups available for you to choose!  The greenhouse studio
is available seasonally.
