Say goodbye to the shoebox!

This is product week here at Shannon Walton Photography 🙂  I decided to share some of the great products we have at the studio to showcase images from your session.  Love these boxes.  I printed one for each of my own kids.  I plan to do this once a year and add images to the box throughout the year.  Do you have images thrown in a shoebox?  Why not store them in a beautiful box that is a piece of art all on it’s own?

Oh my word!

I am totally in love with this photo.  The newborn in the chair in my flash header above is now an ADORABLE little one year old.  I can hardly believe it’s been a year.   I opened this photo and gasped.  I smiled, then laughed.  I closed the photo and opened another and went back to look at it again.  I have probably done this 10 times today!  Those lips, those cheeks, the way the mulch makes a beautiful natural background.  I have tons to share from this session when I’m finished but wanted you to see what has made me smile at least 10 times today!


Super fun family!

I have to tell you that this family made it soooo easy!  You could absolutely tell that they just loved being together.   I hope you can feel it because I certainly felt it behind the camera! 



Isn’t the little guy adorable?  He told me several new jokes during our session and I think I may have missed some shots I was laughing so hard (don’t worry mom you have TONS to choose from) !

“J” : “How do you get a kleenex to dance?”

“Me” : “How?”

“J”:  “Put a boogie in it!”

Seriously, you’re cracking up aren’t you?  Remember “J”, the next time I see you I’m expecting some fresh cilantro!

Guess what?

blog12Their adventure has begun and I’ll be posting images of the new addition in a day or two.  Stay tuned…

I’ve been busy!

Sorry for the posting delay but it’s been a little crazy around here!  I have lots, and I mean LOTS of images to share!  I guess I just needed a little nudge (thank you Colleen) to get my act together and share some recent sessions.  None of these are sneak peeks as all my clients have seen their images but each deserve their spot featured on the blog, so here it goes…


First up, this Adorable little 1 year old, and I mean Adorable with a capitol A!  It turns out he wasn’t feeling so well and although we got a few cute images we had to cut our session short and are reshooting in a couple weeks when he is feeling like is regular chipper self.  It is very important to me that my clients get a gallery full of images that capture their children, every single ounce of them!  I look forward to seeing him again.  I mean c’mon look at him, who wouldn’t want to spend time with this Adorable(yes, with a capitol A) little fella!!



My favorite…
