I put off taking these photos until the last minute out of fear of being stuck taking pictures for and hour or so. I should have known better. With a subject this pretty, the shots aren’t that hard to take. For the past 3 years that I have known Shannon, her natural beauty always stuns me. While I do tease her over her perfectly angled nose, the strength in her character seems to be showcased on her face.
For this shoot we had to create a perfectly black background using an umbrella and flashes taken at the perfect angle. While it can be a bit time consuming trying to get the hang of it, once you got the first shot right, you’re on a roll.
