Shannon, Sean and their two wonderful kids – Jenna and Dallan – are my very special clients. They won a family photo session from me during the first annual charitable golf tournament organized by my church to raise funds for research of a rare mitochondrial disease that took little angel Drew Clark. It was my honor to donate a session to such an important cause. The next auction will take place on August 10, 2010, I will be donating one more family photo session and you may have a chance to win it!

I spoke to Shannon on the phone a couple of times and she seemed such a nice person that I couldn’t waitto meet her and the rest of her family for photos! After many weeks of planning we finally met and they’re absolutely amazing! I loved every second of our shoot, the kids were great, Jenna was like a little model – making faces and smiling at me! aww! And the baby boy Dallan was just perfect – sending smiles to us and waving his tiny little hands, so cute! I wish the weather was a bit more cooperative, it kept us moving fast as I didn’t want the kids to freeze – all of them were great sports!
