Hi and thanks for checking me out. Let me start off by saying that I have the greatest job in the entire world!!! I love what I do and can't imagine doing anything else for a living. Photographing weddings, babies and families is my passion and every year I'm lucky enough to be in business I consider it an honor and a continuous learning experience.
My background is in the fine arts. After graduating from Florida State University in 1993 with a degree in visual arts and art education, I taught at a school for the arts in Pinellas County for nearly 10 years and was named 'teacher of the year' in 2002. While teaching art I was building my photography business which officially started in 1999 after freelancing weddings for 3 years. Since the birth of my daughter in 2004 I have resigned from teaching but still actively volunteer at the Suncoast Waldorf School. Visit them at www.suncoastwaldorf.org for a glimpse at a truly beautiful approach to education.
As you view the photos on my site, I'd like you to know that most of these families are repeat customers. From their engagement sessions, wedding to maternity and family portraits, I've come to know and make friends with many of these wonderful families and consider it a true honor to capture the most precious moments in their lives.

Shannon was amazing to work with! Our pictures turned out amazing. She captured moments when we didn't even know she was there, and details which we absolutely love. She was professional and laughed along with us, through some of our more...unique...moments. :) We appreciated everything she did and would recommend her to anyone.

Shannon is amazing at what she does and so easy to work with. She does a great job of directing
people to ensure she is getting the best angles and at making you feel relaxed. My wedding pictures are breathtaking-- I'm having a hard time narrowing them down to fit into just one album! She is very sweet and always professional. A true pleasure to work with.

Shannon is by far the most talented and professional photographer I have ever worked with. She did my daughter's engagement session, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and wedding pictures and we couldn't be happier. Shannon is a dream to work with, so kind and genuine. The photos from the wedding are breathtaking, above and beyond anything we could have imagined. From the moment she arrived in the bridal suite, she started snapping away, capturing every detail and didn't stop until the very end of the reception. We had a very detailed timeline which she was so helpful with creating and she stuck to it the entire day. Her creativity with the pictures blew me away, even my husband said he's never seen such beautiful photos. She understands how to capture the emotion and excitement of the the day and we are so thankful to have these gorgeous photos to cherish forever. We can't stop looking at them! I wouldn't think of hiring anyone else - ever!
So talented, amazing work . Very bride and vendor friendly.
Shannon Livingston is AMAZING! I recommend her 100%! Not only is she professional and experienced, she is artistic, fun and her photos catch those "special" moments that make all the difference!! No posing here!! Her photos take your breath away.I can't tell you how many times I have shed a tear looking through her pics because I could feel the captured emotion!! <3
I always get so excited when a bride tells me that she has chosen Shannon as her photographer! Every Image is a true piece of art! Amazing!
