About Shanna...

Helloooo, nope that’s not a typo that’s just how I tend to say hello.

I have been practicing photography for over 15 years.

I am a 4th generation entrepreneur and an immigrant from South Africa. I grew up along the coast.

I studied photography for 5 years in my hometown then took my gap year abroad au pairing for a family in Seattle. I met the love of my life at Comic Con during speed dating – talk about events bringing people together!

I have been in the United States for over 8 years and have loved it all.

I especially love all the events I get to attend in this area.

But most importantly … I love drinking lemonade at all the festivals in our area and of course photographing the joy and excitement attendees and vendors get to experience at such events.
