The reporter in me!

After having a conversation with my husband and my brother last night, I am rethinking about some additional items that I can add to Shannon Hage Photography. I spent nearly five years of my life in a television news room. I loved being a producer and most of all reporter, having the opportunity to share the lead story of the day with our viewing audience. I still have that looming desire to tell a good story; but now, that desire is without"if it bleeds it leads" as my guiding motto; meaning- less violence, chaos, crime/punishment, and more happiness, love, clarity and what truly seems to matter in life!
I believe that my photos are more than just a great pose and a click with my trigger finger. I never stop clicking. My favorite moments are those that are captured and between the poses.

So, with that, I am going to make sure that my clients get their story told thru the eye of my lens but also a narrative describing their photography experience ( thru this once roving reporter's eyes).

Addison is 2

I am really beginning to see some beautiful people on a regular basis!

You would not believe how much fun I am having. Addison is a gorgeous two year old who walked up to me and said "Hello," and followed it up with a hug.

Her personality is as vibrant as the colors on her tutu and matching shoes!

Hope you had a beautiful 2nd birthday, Miss Addison!

The Marton Beauties!

As I started my business, I had a contest to give away a free photo shoot! I had the most amazing subjects in the Marton Sisters! Riley, 2 and Kaiya was around 7 or 8 months.

I became my photographer's photographer!

Gary Helland is an amazing photographer! He has a gift for catching the beauty of his subjects while they are celebrating life. Gary was my wedding photographer. He snapped so many beautiful pictures of our day! So, when Gary asked me to take pictures for him, photos that he had hoped to use for his book and other marketing materials, I was completely HONORED!

Here are a few.

Avery Ellis, 6 Months

This little guy was so adorable! I love that age when a baby becomes a little curious person! Avery was so fun to take pictures of. He had great expressions, a lot of smiles and very loving parents!

What I have been up to lately!

Busy is an understatement. For all of you who don't know, I also work a full time job in addition to being Savannah's mommy, Rick's wife and your photographer!
So, updating this blog has had to sit simmering on the back-burner for months and months and months!
So, as promised, I will begin to update more frequently.
Here is a glimpse at the all of my best shots from my fabulous clients over the last few months.

B.Belle Couture

We brought in our fabulous Baby models for this photo shoot. B.Belle Couture is a local baby clothing and accessories company. Their line features onesies, headbands and bows, amazing booties and shoes, and gorgeous diaper covers and shorts!

You can find there line and more of my photos at

Baby Channing and Big sister Carsen!

These beauties were so much fun to work with!
Mom, Audrey, was a sorority sister of mine and man do she and hubby make some gorgeous babies.

Mike and Jess are Having a Baby!

I got to know Jess a little in college and ecstatic when she asked me to take some maternity pictures of her! Here is the gorgeous mom to be at 37 weeks!! She is stunning and glowing like you wouldn't believe! Her husband Mike is so supportive and helpful!

A few weeks later... Jess had this little guy! Conner

Conner is a beautiful and perfect little creature!

Introducing Asher Hake!

Asher is the brand new addition. He is a gorgeous baby and looks just like his daddy... and possibly his big sister!

A few weeks later, we took some family pictures. Outdoor photos in the Summer in Arizona makes for a quick and sweaty photo shoot, but this family hung in there and kept smiling!
