Samantha 'Annette' Schannon
Welcome and thank you for your interest in my work. I’m always so envious of those people who are super creative and have these amazing “About Me" sections. You know the ones, “Hi I’m Bob and I climb Mt. Everest in my spare time”. So truth be told, that’s not me! When I’m not behind the camera, you can often find me with my 3-legged lab Sheldon, sitting on a blanket somewhere in a park, or roaming a farmers market. I like to read, and listen to music. Last year I made a resolution to learn to cook (without burning down the house), and I did!! I enjoy gardening, and I love the outdoors. When I started my photography journey I would sit in a field for hours just photographing butterflies and fireflies.
I think most photographers will tell you they love their job, that they're passionate about what they do, and of course that’s all true for me as well. But I think everyone has a reason for picking up a camera and making it a profession. For me, it’s kind of personal. As someone who grew up with parents that didn't EVER want their picture taken “I don’t look pretty right now”, I’m having a bad hair day”, “I feel fat today”, it was a tough blow when I lost them both and was left with hardly any tangible memories of what they looked like. I think capturing moments and getting them printed is so important, not just for you but for your children, or family. This is why you will find my business model really focuses on Wall Art, and prints, versus digital negatives which from personal experience, never make it off the disc.
My style is very easy going, I enjoy outdoor portraiture and natural light, but I have backdrops and studio lights if that’s a style you’re after. My images tend to be crisp, sharp, and edited with a clean finish. I enjoy the post process work as much as capturing the moments. I treat each image like a piece of art. If I sound like someone you’d like to work with, don’t be shy! Send me an email, or give me a call and I’d love to chat about a future session.
