2011 {A Review}

Wow 2011 was an amazing year! I can't only imagine what 2012 holds! I wanted to do a quick look back at some of my favorite shots of 2011. I just gotta say, I sure am fortunate to take photos of such good lookin people, places, & things! :)

Here's a sneak peak of a beautiful Napa wedding I haven't posted just yet.... stay tuned! And last but certainly not least, here is my family! Technically it's not a photo I took, but it is one of my favorites of 2011 so I had to include it! :)

I wish you all the best for 2012! I have a feeling it's going to be an amazing year! ~Shannon

Merry Christmas to Me :)

Well I bought myself a little Christmas present this year... I don't think I can ever remember buying myself a Christmas present before but I couldn't pass this one up...

Once the banks open back up next week I will be able to finish paperwork and get the keys to my first house!

I've been searching for a house for over a year now, and after a few houses that fell through, this one landed in my lap! It's perfect for me and I now know why all the other houses didn't work out, this one was meant to be! :)

Merry Christmas to Me!

It's Christmas Time in the City {San Francisco}

Last weekend my sister, Jessica, and I went on a mini-get away to the city on the bay - San Francisco! We took a "Holiday Lights Tour" around the city and it was really neat! I've lived in Northern California all my life and made many trips to San Francisco, but I've never really been on an "official" tour of San Francisco. Needless to say there was a lot I learned about the Golden Gate City! Before the tour we spent a little time down at Pier 39 then walked down to Fisherman's Warf. Jessica and I love all things Christmasy so we we had a blast! :)

A quick shot from the car as we drove into the city...
We finished up the tour at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel. They had a gorgeous Christmas tree and a 2-story life size Gingerbread House! Apparently the Chef has to make daily "repairs" to the house due to "hungry" onlookers...

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

The greatest gift you will ever receive will never be found under a Christmas tree. It is far too valuable to be stored in any other place but in the depths of your heart. ~ Anonymous

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Kingsbury Family {Dixon family photography}

The Kingsbury family is super special to me because they were some of my very first clients! This session has long been in the works because it was very important to Kirsty to do a family photo with everyone together, and up until a few months ago part of the family lived in Texas. Thankfully they are all together again and we were able to get everyone together. This family will have a few more faces added to it before too long, Kirsty & Cassie are both expecting baby boys next year!
Next we have all the lovely ladies. It's a good thing a couple of baby boys are on the way, they will help balance things out! :) And here we have the handsomest ones of the group :) We couldn't pass up the chance for some family shots.
Kris & Kirsty and Taylor (plus baby boy on the way!) Ryan & Cassie and Emma (and of course the other baby boy! These cousins are going to have a best friend from birth!) Grand Daughters are a wonderful blessings! :) Taylor could definitely become a full fledged model. She has been in front of either my or Kirsty's camera practically from the day she was born! You just can't help taking photos of her, she's too adorable! Emma looks a little bigger than the last photos I took of her. And what a cutie she is! Missy & Kay have too much fun together. Can't you tell? :) Robert & DeeDee, I just love these of you two. Thank you Kingsbury family - it was fun! :)
