The gal behind the lens.....

Hello! I'm Shannon and this is a little info. about me! I'm a daughter, sister, mother, and widow who loves (and maybe even addicted to) lipstick and nailpolish. No matter what anyone says, there is no such thing as having too many shades/colors! lol. I love photography and always have. I remember getting a little red camera from Santa; from there my passion was born. I love pizza, icecream, fairytales, hearing my little ones' laughing, red is my fav color - so is pink, I'm sometimes goofy and I have blonde moments too! lol. I enjoy photographing everything around me - the evening Sun hitting the horizon, the waves of the ocean, the water rushing over the sand, the belly of the mommy to be, the giggling baby, the sweet toes of a newborn and the first kiss the bride and groom share as Mr. & Mrs. These are moments and emotions that I capture for you - I love telling your story with my photography! I wouldn't be who I am today without the direction of God and the love & support of my friends and family! Thank you so much for always believing in me. =) Some say "a picture is worth a thousand words" ...... I say they're priceless! ~XOXXO~ Shannon Wermers "Capturing Priceless Memories That Last a Lifetime"

Okay – I. Have. Been. Slacking….. There I said it.

Posted on August 21, 2011

So after a much needed break – I’m back!

First of all. I want to apologize to my peeps that have had sessions this year. Please forgive me for NOT blogging your fabulousness. That is, until now. hahaa… Love you!!

So what have I been up to lately, you ask? I recently came back from an extended trip to Arizona. Where I visited with my family and scoped out the areas I would like to live. Did I find something? Yes – BUT it’s too pricey for the current market. BUT I am keeping my eye on it… Okay, then I kicked it there for a bit and decided to stay in Florida for another year. Honestly, this is the first year that I feel comfortable (sort to speak) in our new normal. So I think it is best for me and the girlies to stay put until next year. =)  Hooray from all my FL peeps and BOO from all my AZ peeps. haha.. =)

Two of my three girls had birthdays – Big A, 4 and Little A, 1.   It was a fun day with fun people to share it with. Big A is still as spunky as the day she arrived and Little A is a precious and just as spunky as Big A.  …. Yes, I have a feeling I am IN for IT! ;)

Big C. graduated from preschool (insert … aawwweeee and tear) and will be starting Kindergarten tomorrow (insert another aaaawwee and tear) hahaa. I REALLY cannot believe it. I will say that tomorrow will be a bitter-sweet day for me, but I know that she is going to have a blast! I’m uber excited that she and her friend selected the same teacher. I think they will have a great year.

So, I said the other day out loud, “Jesus! I am ready to go back to work. Not that I haven’t been working (because I have done shoots and not that he doesn’t already know that, right! haha) But I’m ready to get back in the groove.” And a day later……. Bam! He blesses me with 4 shoots right off the bat. Thank you Jesus… he rocks. =)

You know, honestly… a lot has happened this year, but it’s getting late and I can’t remember it all at the moment. haha. So, I think I will end it on this note and maybe skim through some photos and post them for ya.

Watch out this week for more posts of some great sessions.

Love,

Shannon

Steel Blue, Spiky Hair & Love || Pensacola Family Photographer

Posted on January 14, 2011

Mommy and son are such beautiful people; both inside and out. We met up at Ft. Pickens and it wasn’t an easy task meeting up for Sarah and Little A.!  LOL Let’s just say from being stopped by a police officer for ‘being sooo excited to take their photos (lol)’, to “Mommy! I need to POTTY!!” and last but not least – getting stuck in the sand! Seriously… No lie. But without giving up, Sarah managed to keep her sanity through it all and we finally got to meet. =) We had a fabulous time and it was so much fun. Little A. is just adorable and full of life! You guys were such a joy to hang with. Thank you so much for choosing me for your family portraits!

Good luck in the big ‘A’!! I pray for many of God’s blessings upon you.

Eureka!!! So after our cool and casual attire… this fantabulous family changed outfits and came out with these shirts on…. LOL….

Sand, Sun & Waves || The Z. Family

Posted on October 27, 2010

I had fun in the sun…. well, let us be honest! The weather that day was on its own page! lol God Bless this family for being so patient while we waited for the thunderstorm to pass. But when it did – we had FUN and the sunlight was just beautiful as it passed thru the clouds. The water was the perfect color; the sand was white as snow and to top it off we had two handsome little boys and two gorgeous parents. Thank you so much for letting me be in your world for a short time! I had a great time and you were awesome to hang with! God bless your family and bless you in all things you put your hands to!!

Baby Jayden

Posted on July 5, 2010

A few months ago I had the chance to meet up with this adorable couple for some maternity photos! They were expecting their first baby – a little boy.
(I love seeing the before and after pics. Don’t you! It is sooo amazing to know that there’s a little human being in there!)
IMG_1400_1

Since then they brought their little bundle of joy into the world – Hooray!!!!

Funny story….. I had our little girl a few days before they had Jayden! Cool, right?! I know! Okay, so here I am going to the hospital elevator when I look up and ‘BAM’ there’s Brandon aka Daddy!! hahaha funny. They had just had the little guy!! Guess what?! I got to meet him – THAT day! It was so cool for that to happen. Mommy looked FABULOUS for just having him!! I even got to see the new Daddy change a diaper…. *sigh* totally brought back some memories of when we had our first daughter. =) ahhaa… Well, it was just a blessing to see them on that special day! Jayden is an absolute cutie pie. Congratulations you two! Job well done ;)

Happy Independence Day America!!!

Posted on July 4, 2010

IMG_9648

It’s July 4 and I’m positive that everyone is going to be with family, friends or the combination of both for BBQs and fireworks! Yes, it’s going to be a day of celebration for us all. But with all that aside we as a nation of grateful citizens need to remember those that sacrificed their lives to make sure that we can celebrate such a wonderful day. =)
So I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the military men and women who gave us our freedom from the beginning, to the present and in the future. We are forever grateful. =)

And a VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to my Clint, LT “Dean” Wermers, I love you honie and I was and am still so proud of you! to have served beside you as your wife!!!! ‘Til we meet again my love…..
daddy flag

So today I will leave you with this……..
(before you read below…..yes…I’m still writing thank you notes…… lol there were a lot! I am truly blessed and loved by many who I know and have never met)

A little something I wrote on a thank you note to a sister squadron in Mississippi, because it not only speaks to them, but to all of us military spouses… men and women.

“Please know that as a military spouse, you are more than just a spouse! You stand beside your loved one…… supporting them in what they love and in protecting our country. You are VERY important and never forget that! It was an honor to stand beside my hubby as his wife; for us and for our country. Stand tall, stand strong and know that God walks with you. Take care of yourselves and your family! Only few of us are lucky to be called a military spouse. =) God Bless you! ”

Love,
Shannon Wermers

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!!!

*Thanks to MCP actions for the free flag template that you can add pictures to it. =) Click MCP to check out their blog and for the template.

Class of 2010! || T.’s Senior Portraits

Posted on May 21, 2010

What fun I had with Tori! We headed out to Ft. Pickens for the perfect backdrop for Senior portraits. We had many laughs during our shoot. Plus I was HUGE pregnant during this shoot and was totally out of breath the whole time! lol It was hysterical. But Tori was a trooper with me… Thanks for baring with me! ;)

Thank you so much for the great time! Congratulations and I hope you have a wonderful graduation and a blessed future! I know you will become an amazing woman in this world.
