My name is Shannon "Dabling" hence the title :) I am a mother of 3, stay at home mom, Creative Memories Consultant, and photographer. I have been a consultant twice so far, and have had my home photography studio for 7 years.

My goal for the year 2010 is to "Focus on Photos" and my mission is to help others with the same goal.

I love what I do and have met the most wonderful people through both of my business's. I hope that I can continue helping others.

Tuesday Tech Tip

For Todays Tech Tip I think I will give a little photo lesson about details using yesterdays post as an example.

Yesterday I was my daughters first day of school. (second grade) and I wanted to capture the details that would show the excitement building until that day. I took a picture of a clock just minutes before it was time to wake up.


And of the calendar with the date circled.


This is letting me tell the story with pictures. And details show what was happening.

Don't forget to get a few candid's when they don't really know your shooting. I know its hard when these little ones that we take so many pictures of, automatically put on their "smile" face and strike a pose.  But these of Madison in her class room tell more about the story.


Maddie is really hard to get candid's of too. Sometimes the only ones I can get are when she asleep :)



Happy Shooting
