Hi, I am Cara Shonamon.


I have always loved taking pictures. Ever since I was a kid I enjoyed capturing moments and memories. When our first child was born I began taking photography more seriously as I wanted to capture our family memories throughout the years. This hobby turned into something that has brought me great joy. I love seeing the joy that beautiful pictures bring to my clients. Some say that they are just pictures, but I like to think they are magical moments captured in time. I would be honored to work with you and capture your magical moments!


PS- More importantly than any of the details above- I love doing life with my family: my amazing husband Justin is a teacher and coach; my three kids: Kenzie, Alice, and Halston; and my two dogs: Sally and Harry. They put up with me and all my love of photography!

Savor the Memories

The digital age is robbing our young ones of artwork with their faces on it! Check out this video of my daughter, Alice, opening her baby book. She was so excited and asks to see it all the time. I'd love to help your children savor their memories as well... for years to come!
