More about Shannon:
I started in 1994 as a mom just wanting to learn to take better pictures of my kids and it grew from there. I took a long hiatus (about 13 years) and went back to it about 9 years ago. I focus primarily on high school seniors and high school/college sports photography. I photograph approximately 80 seniors per year and cover ASU football/basketball for Sports360Az along with several high schools.
