Shannon made my daughter’s wedding alive in our hearts forever. Her joyful personality loved that my daughter was having a Steampunk wedding and she captured the uniqueness and beauty of the day in the numerous photos she took. First, she met with my daughter, son-in-law and I and carefully went through the details of the day, the family shots we wanted, the family shots to avoid (exes, etc.), and who/what we wanted highlighted. She was absolutely omnipresent at the ceremony and not only followed the plan to a T, but photographed candids and decor that would have been forgotten. The expressions on the guests’ faces were delightful, and the scenic areas for photoshoot settings were perfect. I cannot recommend her enough. When the abundant number of photos came in and then a video with a compilation of the photos to music, we were thrilled. Thank you, Shannon (and your assistant!) for all your work, flexibility, foresight, and raw talent.
Right from our first meeting, Shannon was amazing. She's so friendly and an absolute pleasure to work with. You can tell that she has a passion for what she does, and just has fun with it. For our wedding this July, she completely immersed herself within our families, made herself at home, and truly did an amazing job. The absolute best photographer, and person, we could have asked for!
Annonymous, Boudoir Session
My experience with Shannon and Boudoir Moments was so great from start to finish (and beyond). I was not at all certain I wanted to do a boudoir shoot, but I joined her private Facebook group and I'm so glad I did. It helped me realize what a positive, empowering and exciting experience it could be. Of course I wanted to lose 10-15 lbs, tone up, have more money at my disposal... I had so many reasons not to do it. But let's be honest, older bodies don't tend to get perkier with time! My 10 year wedding anniversary was coming up and it was the perfect time.
As soon as I signed up, Shannon was a guide for me. She was a sounding board for all my questions, of which there were many. After booking I started buying sexy lingerie to wear for the shoot - and they felt damn good to wear!
I was nervous for my session. Butterflies. But once I had my hair and makeup done (beautiful, thanks to Michelle Carbonneau), I felt ready, and started to shed my fears - and clothes!
Shannon is very experienced at guiding and posing people to look their best. She knew all of my insecurities and my "problem areas" and helped me portray them in the best possible way. She showed me photos as we went, to reassure me they looked good - and that continued to build my confidence! I felt completely supported and safe in her hands and her lense.
Shannon worked hard to get me a sneak-peek photo before my anniversary, which was just a short time later. My husband was surprised... more like shocked, and he loved it! As did I. It was a gorgeous photo. It made me so excited to see the rest.
The rest of the photos were presented to me during my reveal. By this time, I was 90% excited and 10% anxious. I knew Shannon had taken some photos which really put me outside my comfort zone - how would those look?? Stunning!!! I loved them all. It was impossible to just choose a few favourite. She has an amazing talent for editing to highlight beauty, not to change a person into someone else. And those shots I was worried about? LOVE them!
And needless to say, those ones are my husband's favourites too.
My husband and I are still in the process of choosing which ones to print. It's a hard choice for both of us.
I allowed Shannon to share some of my photos on the private Facebook group, and the feedback was so positive and supportive and warm - what a confidence boost! I love being part of the group still, because I love giving that same love and support to other women who have done, it or are thinking of doing it. When you land on such and amazing experience, you want to share it with others!
One of the unexpected gifts I received from this experience is loving my body as-is. I have only ever looked at it with a critical eye. I'm learning to look at myself with love and appreciation.
I hope this helps others take the plunge. You won't regret it!
Husband's Perspective, Boudoir Testimonial
As fan of pop culture movies, Shannon's Boudoir photography of my wife made me feel like I had a sneak peek at one of the beautiful dancers from the Moulin Rouge. I was pleasantly surprised and intrigued by how personal and erotic these pieces of art were. I would highly recommend Shannon's work to any woman wanting to blow away their hubby
This incredible business promotes empowering women and encourages self love, building confidence and even pushing yourself out of your comfort zone to make it all happen!!!
It was an incredible experience. These are images I will treasure forever. It may be a gift for my huband, but it was truly a gift to my soul. So empowering to look at images of yourself and think I look incredible. You were excellent at guiding me and making me feel comfortable and beautiful. I LOVE them!! Anyone on the fence, do IT!
Anonymous, Boudoir Session
Ok this might sound a bit crazy but, ever since I booked my session with Shannon, I've felt... different. I haven't even had my session yet, but I'm already looking at myself differently, carrying myself differently. Realizing I can be a mom and be sexy too. I bought a few items of sexy lingerie for the shoot, and originally I had it tucked away in a bag at the back of my closet, waiting for the photo shoot. But now I'm actually WEARING IT! Wowza! I had forgotten what a sexy pair of undies can do to the way you carry yourself!
For the past 35 years, I have always put someone else first. Children, ex-husband, family, friends etc, the thought of doing something for myself was a foreign concept. I was given an opportunity to put myself first and it terrified me. When I started on this journey of self-discovery I never thought I would end up where I did.
When Shannon and I did my reveal, you can see my expression go from fear and sadness to genuine smiles. Shannon gave me the opportunity to be myself. The loving, sensual person I have kept hidden all these years for fear of exposing my pain. This opportunity also gave me the confidence to confront my past. Thank you Shannon.
I recently had a Boudoir session with Shannon and I was nervous going in, with her guidance, professionalism her upbeat personality I walked out of there with new found confidence and a pep in my step. She made the whole process from start to finished fun, enjoyable and positive. She knows how to position a woman’s body to emphasize all the parts that you love. When I went to do my revile I was worried I would only like a couple, well I came out of there and loved all my photos! She did an amazing job and I can’t wait to do a follow up session with her!
This is something that I have always wanted to do but I never had the confidence to do it. It wasn’t just as a present for my fiancee as a Thank you for bringing out the real me but also as a present for myself. It was a fun and amazing time. Shannon is an amazing artist with the camera and makes you feel totally at ease when having the pictures taken.
