My daughter and I LOVE Shannon! She is my second child and my first child used another photographer and the experiences don't even compare. Shannon was far superior! She spent so much more time with my daughter to get such a better smile, look, location, sunset and more than my son's photographer. That is why I switched to Shannon. Shannon worked with my daughter, made her laugh and enjoy the sessions and brought the best out of her. When this is the last year of your child at home and quite possibly the last real photos you will have to remember that child as a child, it is SO WORTH the expense to have these QUALITY photos. If I had another child, I would definitely choose Shannon again! Her photos of my daughter stand out amongst her friend's senior photos! My daughter is super happy with them, which is hard sometimes with girls ;) I am super happy with them! All in all and excellent experience and quality of portraits!
I felt I had to express to you how grateful I am for the incredible experience and pictures. Our son, Will, had no interest in having senior pictures made. And on the day of his photo shoot, Will was having a very bad day, and said he would only do indoor photos and not the outdoor photos. Meanwhile, Shannon, you just went about your work, found out his interests, and calmly talked about it as you worked. When you had finished in your studio and said you would pack up and meet us at the location, there was no argument or attitude from Will and we drove straight there. After an amazing outdoor shoot, we were finished. Mom happy, son happy, and pictures AMAZING! Looking through the finished album, it is clear that you have an amazing gift, Shannon. Not only were the pics great, but you captured our son’s personality, not just in the props, but in his comfort level, it came through in aces. Shannon, you will be doing our family pictures from now until you are no longer in the business. You are the only one we will ever use or recommend. We give you 5 and a half stars!
An investment to last a lifetime and beyond. . . I cannot compliment Shannon Matson enough. She has exceeded a mom’s expectations and captured the beauty and essence of my precious kids. She not only helps pose the person in the most complimentary position and takes time to explain and demonstrate the best way to stand or sit for the perfect shot, but she takes meticulous care with positioning her equipment for the ideal lighting and in order to capture that unbelievable memory. She has an uncanny sense of what will be magnificent photos because of the light, angles or some other magic that most ordinary people cannot see. She has both an artist’s eye and detailed technical skills to produce truly once in a lifetime photographs. But Shannon goes above and beyond the camera and lights. She will lie in the dirt, sit in bug infested shrubs and wade in murky water to get the incredible and one of a kind photograph. I don’t believe there is another photographer who will take the time or make the effort to do such an outstanding job as Shannon. Her relaxed demeanor got my 17 year old son through two separate photo shoots before he even realized it. She was able to create senior photo memories for both my son and daughter that are exceptional. Thank you Shannon, from the bottom of my heart.
Shannon Matson is not just an ordinary photographer. Rather, she is a gifted artist who will captures beautiful, unique and timeless images of your senior. After researching senior portrait photographers, I ultimately chose Shannon Matson because the quality of her website, galleries, communication, products and services was unmatched. She offers the full package in senior photography. Shannon can be trusted to effectively guide you through the process, capture outstanding images, and deliver high quality products in a timely and professional manner. Her professionalism and experience result in a seamless, stress free process that both mom and senior will enjoy. You won't find another photographer who produces higher quality photographs and products. Don't hesitate to invest in senior photos as you will never stop smiling when you look at the precious images that not only capture a moment in time, they tell a story you will always cherish.
Shannon made our Senior photo experience memorable! An expert in lighting detail, she was able to capture exquisite photos on an unusually cool and damp day--when we thought we might have to reschedule. She spent time making sure she understood our expectations while offering her own professional advice and suggestions throughout the photo shoot.
When it came time to view Matthew's photos, Shannon had everything orchestrated so that ordering was easy. Our priceless photos were delivered quickly, too! We highly recommend using Shannon Matson Photography for all those treasured moments you want captured. Her professionalism and skill with a camera cannot be matched.
Shannon takes her time to make sure she captures the right image. She is very professional & very friendly. Her imagination comes to life through her photography. Finding the right chemistry between the photographer & their subject, can make or break the photo session. My biggest fear was that my daughter's personality would not come out in the photos. From the moment you two met & started the photo shoot, my daughter's personality was shining brightly in all photos taken. You definitely know how to bring out each person's personality in their photos! I had no idea how beautiful Mallory's seniors photos would turn out. There are special moments that you want to capture to remind you of your high school years. Shannon is a very professional photographer that has your best interest at heart. Thank you Shannon, for capturing my daughter's senior year!
Shannon photographed our senior son. She got smiles no one has seen in years and the dramatic lighting effects she captured were amazing. The more great shots our son saw, the more enthused he was to have his picture taken. We had tons of fabulous pictures in an hour!! Thank you, Shannon!!
My daughter had an amazing experience! Shannon was able to capture the most confident and fun shots of her, and the quality of her work was outstanding! We had so many photos to choose from and it was really hard narrowing down such great work. I highly recommend Shannon for your high school seniors photographs!
Shannon has now photographed all three of my son's senior photos over the last seven years. She has taken the time to get to know each of my sons, to capture their personalities and smiles. They are all different and unique in their own ways, and she was able to capture that. Each senior session catered to the interests and individual personality of each of my boys. Shannon has brought me to tears each time she has photographed a son. The photos were and are beautiful, memories I will treasure forever!!
I can highly recommend Shannon Matson for anyone who wants the very best in capturing their child's senior pictures. I have had three other photographers for my other children, and there is a night and day difference between Shannon's quality and the others. Shannon is able to capture your child's personality as well as being an expert in color, shading, design, and background selection. My daughter loved Shannon's personality, and they clicked instantly. She made my daughter feel totally relaxed. I wouldn't go anywhere else if you are wanting the best! So glad we found Shannon Matson Photography!
You were able to get my son, who rarely smiles, to smile and to open up and show his personality. I can't thank you enough for making Joey come alive. As for Rachel, her pictures are beautiful and her smile even bigger. She shines in your pictures! I love how you captured my twins perfectly!
Shannon Matson did an amazing job with my senior pictures. She really takes your personality into consideration and the finished product is great. I was very pleased.
My husband tried to take our daughter's senior photos himself first, and it was a disaster. One of our friends had a great experience with Shannon and recommended her to us. This exceptionally talented professional photographer was able to get the perfect poses very quickly, despite wind gusts and inclement weather! We had so much fun and could not believe the quantity and quality of shots she took in such a short amount of time. I highly recommend this photographer!
Shannon is a great photographer that uses several unique techniques. Couldn’t have asked for better Senior photos!
Shannon did such an amazing job on my senior photos! I had previously taken sorority photos with another photographer, but I was not happy with her work. You couldn't see my hair or eyes, and I didn't think her photos even looked like me. So I decided to go to Shannon Matson for my senior photos. Shannon instructed me in many different poses, and made me look great! She fixed my hair and clothing throughout the shoot, to make sure I looked my best. Not only was Shannon much more professional, but the finished photos were amazing! Overall Shannon did 100% better and I loved everything!
My son, Bill, had a blast at the photo shoot! Shannon's portraits captured the true essence of my son's personality! Plus, they were simply beautiful! When looking at our friend's senior photos, Bill's blew the competition away! Our friends and family truly had not seen anything like them before. We are so happy! It was just a great experience!
Shannon is very professional and knows how to bring out the best in your child. She knows when to convince the subject to smile and when to be serious. The poses look natural and not forced. The best thing is her attention to detail with lighting . It looks better than other senior photographers because of the extra attention to lighting. You should hire Shannon for her attention to detail both during your photo shoot and after your photo shoot in post production.
We chose Shannon for our daughter's senior portraits because her portfolio of photos showed quality, creativity, and diversity. Shannon really took the time and care to work with our daughter. The session felt like a modeling photo shoot. Our daugther felt so special in her senior portraits, and we are so glad we spent the time and money to get so many of her photos, because these are just lifelong treasures for us! We liked everything about our daughter's senior portraits and cannot say enough how pleased we are with the quality.
We wanted our daughter’s senior photos to truly capture the essence of what it means to be a High School Senior. Shannon takes pictures that show our daughter’s personality and her love of fashion and dance. You are only a High School Senior once in your life! Shannon had the level of experience to guide our family through this process, and make this milestone come to life in her photos. We are very proud to recommend Shannon Matson to any parent! She truly is an amazing photographer!!
After extensive searching, we settled on Shannon Matson because of the distinct difference in the quality of pictures we were seeing from other professional photographers. Our friends and family were amazed at how beautiful the pictures were, and raved at their quality. The whole experience with Shannon Matson Photography was nothing less than exceptional. I am so thankful for the way that Shannon captured my daughter’s personality, giving us cherished memories surrounding this year of her life!
There were many photographers to choose from for my son's senior pictures, including close friends and family members. But once I saw samples of Shannon Matson's work, I knew she was the photographer for us. I also appreciated she was reliable and had been in business for several years. She did an amazing job capturing my son's personality. I have and will continue to recommend Shannon Matson.
I love the atmosphere of Texas and grew up watching the older DALLAS show with my family. Being a senior in high school, living in Kentucky I wanted to find a photographer that would capture the Feeling I have for Texas and Dallas in my photos. Shannon Matson did an amazing job! She knew what I was looking for and helped me achieve it, she communicates with me months in advance to ensure I had everything I would need including clothes, hotels, locations to shoot. These pictures are a true reflection of me and my love for Texas and Dallas, I could not be more proud of them, and It's all thanks to Shannon. If you're looking to have quality pictures taken, Shannon is definitely the person to go to!
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with all of Emilye's photos! I have seen so many senior photos now of Emilye's friends, and your photography skills and the quality of the pictures are even more apparent! Everyone who has seen our photos are envious of them! I just wanted to say thank you for capturing these memories for my family!
