There are moments – you know them – that land lightly on your soul. A hand on an elbow, a late-night lullaby, the first of a thousand married kisses, when she answered to the name “Grandma” for the very first time. Our lives are collections of these moments, some of them almost too quick to see – a history of truths that we carry, the story that reminds us who we are to each other.
In her seven years as a professional photographer, Shannon Hannon Wilkins has made it her mission to document these moments, as beautifully as she can. With a gift for using light and capturing emotion, her eye for the moments that move us allows her to give clients a collection of impeccably rendered memories. Her life as wife to the kindest man she knows, Brian, and new mother to beautiful daughter, Ellie, have rooted in her a deep appreciation for the way her work can create a time capsule for families – a way to return to their most beloved moments, whether printed and hanging on the walls, or tucked into albums to be treasured and kept.
Singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson once said “I want to use my gifts to tell the truth, and to tell it as beautifully as I can.” Shannon’s gift is her ability to tell your truth, the beautiful, everyday-miraculous truth of your smallest and best moments. It is her privilege to bear witness to the stories you tell, and to tell them back to you, one beautifully crafted image at a time.
Because Shannon isn't really all that comfortable writing about herself in the third person, this bio was beautiful written by the amazing Karyn Thurston.
