Hi!! I am Shannon, a single mother to the sweetest and most wonderful 12 year old boy. I grew up in and we currently reside in the northern suburbs of St Paul, Minnesota. I work FT (M-Th) as a Certified Medical Assistant in a Dermatology clinic. I have lived in Arizona and in Colorado… hopeful to one day move back to Arizona ;)
I am a self-taught artist and photographer who is bound to photography by feel... I am deeply emotionally connected to each photo I take. Outside of my passion for photography, I love to read and have an obsession with super hero movies!! My current read is “Daring Greatly” by Brene Brown. My son and I are looking forward to seeing many movies that will be released in 2017, such as: Logan, Transformers: The Last Knight, Spider-Man, Justice League, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Wonder Woman.
Most people close to me would tell you that I am the most optimistic and positive person. I like to think I am since that is what I strive for, but like anyone, I have my own struggles. I too am susceptible to sadness and negative energy.
To me, living a positive and happy life is being kind, compassionate, and gentle with myself. It is going about with a smile on my face. It is paying compliments to everyone I meet. It is focusing on laughter, celebration, and the depths of life. Living this kind of life is beautiful … a deeper kind of beauty. One that makes you feel excited about being alive, one that allows you to be inspired and be inspirational. One that shows our connectedness to other human beings.
