How I met Shannon and her beautiful family!
I met Shannon and her beautiful family when I was hired by Bronson Hospital to take photographs for a Mammography Awareness campaign. She and four other beautiful women were chosen by Bronson to be the faces of the campaign, which ended up on billboards and informational material around southwest Michigan. The Bronson shoot was really wonderful, not only because I captured beautiful images, but also because I was able to meet a group of five amazing women.
I was immediately drawn to Shannon and asked her she would like to bring her family into the studio for a family portrait...I was full of glee when she agreed! Of course, her husband was a gem and her three children some of the most well behaved, perfectly photogenic little ones I have ever had in my studio (lucky me)! It was a joy to photograph the McBride family. I think we captured a family at an important time in their lives, and have been in love the images from the session the moment I saw them. My partner and I have been lucky enough to spend some free time with Shannon, and it seems I run into her all over the town. It's a wonderful example of the people I get to meet and connect with...my job is a wonderful job indeed!
On a final note, Bronson has decided to do an update to the mammography awareness campaign. The five women will unite once again in my studio for another great day of laughter, connection, stories and more beautiful images that I will be proud to be a part of...I cannot wait to see this group of strong, beautiful women! Take a minute and see what a lovely family the McBrides are by viewingsome of the images from their session!
