Hello! I'm Shawna. I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer in Duluth, Minnesota.
I feel like the luckiest lady on earth to see Lake Superior every day. Coffee (strong) and red wine (stronger) keep me going. Bookshelves (overflowing) and greenery (in various states of health) make appearances in every room in my home.
I am an avid list maker who understands the importance of rolling with the punches (like trying to remember the grocery list when you've left it on the counter). I tend to attract clients who appreciate beauty, details, and human interaction but are laid-back, go-with-the-flow types.
With a camera to my eye I feel almost invisible. People allow me a very intimate glimpse into their lives. I get to preserve for them everything from the most important to the (seemingly) mundane. I truly consider this job a sacred right that's earned through opening up to strangers and telling terrible jokes. I'm not saying I'm funny (at all) but I can (usually) get nearly anyone to laugh (I'd dare call it a strength).
I'm the lucky wife of a handsome (globally published + award-winning!) poet, the mother of one old cat, two rescue pups, a stormy four-year-old boy and a mischievous two-year-old girl. Our tiny hillside house is bursting at the seams, but we have a view of Lake Superior that keeps us rooted in our place.
