Austin Family Photographer | Photo Frolic

“Do you photograph families?”

I get asked this a lot and the answer is YES! I love to, but you won’t see those photos here because a few years ago I decided to separate family portraiture from this website. I started a site called Photo Frolic, Modern Family Portraiture.  I feel like family portraiture is a bit different from wedding photography, so I wanted to be able to give portrait clients a unique experience. It is not something I have really pushed, as you all are lovely clients that have allowed me to be your photographer for life, not just your wedding and then you have told your friends, which is the best form of advertising I could ever ask for.

This upcoming year, while I’ll still be shooting plenty of weddings,  I’ll be looking to grow Photo Frolic. Shannon Cunningham Photography will still be all about weddings, but pop over to Photo Frolic now and again for some of Austin’s cutest newborns, babies and families.

Here’s a tiny sample of some 2012 families.

Catch Me Not Blogging | The Rules and Regs


Austin Wedding Photographer Contest

OK! As mentioned on the Facebook page, I have a ridiculous backlog of events and portrait shoots to show you. It’s borderline embarrassing. Plus, there have been some fun things going on in my life that I’d like to share as well.

So as a motivator to myself AND some holiday fun for you, I’m bringing back ‘Catch Me Not Blogging’ for the rest of December!!

Here are the rules (they are a little different than last time):

I will be putting up a blog post each weekday (That is Monday through Friday) for the remainder of December. If there is no new blog post by 5:00PM {CST} then leave a comment notifying me of my oversight. You have until midnight that night to leave a comment.

I will then assign your comments a number in the order they are written, put them in the random number generator and the winner will receive a $250 credit that may be used towards: A photo session, prints, canvases, albums, digital files, other photo related products (as outlined on my price sheet). New and current clients are eligible. I can travel for a session, but you will be responsible for all travel costs outside of the Austin area. The prize cannot be redeemed for cash, used towards past purchases or to discount wedding photography services.

Make sense? Great.

Let’s get started!! Happy December everyone!

Austin Weddding Photographer | Hi!

Oh hi there!

I have not forgotten all of you wonderful people, but this time of year is a beehive of activity for photographers. I feel like I hear buzzing in my head several hours out of the day (and often into the night when I think of things I didn’t finish).

In addition to all this, I have some exciting news! I have new office space! Here are some ultra before pics. I’m still shopping and organizing, but will have some photos of the final design soon! Austin wedding photographer Shannon Cunningham's new studio space

For those of you that had been to my old space, this one is very different, but in a cozy, homey, wonderful, wood floor way! I’ll be using it for meetings and ordering sessions and hopefully, if you guys are game, some preview slideshow nights! As always, treats and wine and fizzy water will be on hand at all times.

Thanks for all of your support. I can’t wait to ring in 2013 with all of you! It’s going to be an amazing year.

Published | Lori and Jason’s Wedding at The Driskill Hotel

It’s always a nice way to start off the morning learning that a wedding I photographed has been published, especially when it’s a couple that is as fabulous as Lori and Jason. I still smile thinking about their glamorous and FUN wedding at The Driskill Hotel this spring.

They are featured on Modernly Wed – Inspiration for the Modern Bride. Check it out. Thanks so much for the feature!Lori and Jason's Austin Wedding at The Driskill hotel published on Modern WedLori and Jason's Old Hollywood wedding at The Driskill Hotel

Programming Note

Ugh! I had to disable to voting software for a while – there is a security issue with a small part of it. There have been no issues on this website, but better safe than sorry!

I am contacting the developer to get an update of the script and hope to have it back up and running soon!

Because voting is fun!
