I’m Shannon

Creative Strategist, Photographer, and owner here at the lovely Feather Blue Studios!

Small businesses (+ dark chocolate, the color blue, and making an impact in people's lives) get me super excited… which means, perhaps we already have something in common? 

I’ve had many a creative adventure along the way (think fashion, crafting, modeling, marketing, photography, public relations, graphic design, copywriting, and mama-ing just to name a few). 

Some successes, some just life experiences. (You can relate, right?)  Err, the kids are still in the success category if you were wondering.

What I know now?  The dessert-worthy stuff happens in my sweet spots:

  • Using my visionary marketing sense, creativity, and eye for style to help small businesses and amazing people shine
  • Encouraging other dreamers as they create and grow their extraordinary businesses
  • Changing the world with compassion and grace along the way

15+ years ago I bought a camera and flew to Paris to study photography — a tiny morsel of my education in communications, marketing, and design, but one that changed my world  (I mean, it was Paris).  All these years later, creating beautiful photos of people and things has become second nature. But my favorite part of any project or shoot is the idea-factor -- creating an intentional, strategic plan from the get-go and seeing the purpose behind the artistry take hold.

I am so excited to say that I have a small team of stellar “Creatives” (you know, designers, copywriters, web gurus) working with me, project by project, which is happy-dance worthy. Collaboration is a brilliant thing.

Even more brilliant? I do everything I do with a greater purpose (I bet you do too).  God gave me the ability, desire, and opportunity to serve others using my gifts and passion — and I am awe-inspiringly grateful.  So I desire to do life well.  And humbly.  And for others who can’t.  To read about how we’re changing the world and giving back through this business (& how you can too) click here

Want to know more about me or Feather Blue Studios as a whole?  Like what I do in my free time?  (Drink chai tea and eat dark chocolate of course. Sprinkle in the rarely-spotted but highly sought after shopping trip to Anthropologie).  How I get my exercise in?  (Chasing my 3 kiddos + the basketball team I coach around).  How I grew my own business?  (Trial, error, mentors, learning, investing, trusting).  Or whether or not I like mushrooms?  (No. Yuck. Do people really eat those things?  I am happy to take extraordinary pictures of said item, but I will pass on consuming it, thanks.  #justsaynotofungus.  Or eat it.  Your call.)

All to say… just ask.  Truly happy to help!  Shoot us a note HERE.

With Style & Joy,
Shannon & Team
