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.

Austin Portrait Photographer | PhotoFrolic

There is something new happening at Shannon Cunningham Photography and I am so excited and nervous at the same time!

Austin Portrait Photographer

The portrait side of Shannon Cunningham Photography is now PhotoFrolic.

Late last year, I decided I wanted to create a more boutique experience for my portrait clients. Weddings and portraits are very different and have different needs from consultation to final product. I came to the conclusion that the only way to make this happen was to separate the wedding and portrait sides of my business. Thus PhotoFrolic was born. The name sums up my enthusiastic and fun approach to family portraiture. I think you’ll like the changes from booking, to ordering sessions, consultations, a referral program and varied and fun new final products

I am, of course, still taking wedding commissions, so please help me spread the word about PhotoFrolic and Shannon Cunningham Photography!

You can find galleries and tons of other information over at the new website – go look and let me know what you think!

Where did all the portraits go? Plus: Holiday Portraits-design your perfect session

You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t been posting my family, children, baby and newborn photos on the blog recently.

It’s not because I haven’t been shooting them, but because I have something in the works. There’s going to be a big change (for the better) to Shannon Cunningham Photography in the next few weeks. There’s going to be a NEW place to see my portrait work – I’m not quite ready to show it to you yet though.

If you are one of my fabulous portrait clients, or are just interested, sign up for the newsletter, which you can do by clicking on the ‘Newsletter’ tab at the top. It looks like this:

There is going to be something GOOD in store for referrals and the people that refer them.   So if you know anyone in the market for some fun and fabulous portraiture with the Shannon Cunningham stamp on it – pass this along!

Finally, I have been dragging my feet on setting up holiday mini-session times. These have been a big hit the last few years but I wanted to solicit some input from you all. What would be your perfect mini-session? Include a few high res files? Do you want me to make your Holiday cards? Do you want gorgeous framed wall portrait? Did you like it the year I took a portion of the session fee and donated it? What locations have you loved?  Hit me up in the comments or shoot me an email with your thoughts.

xoxo~Shannon

Sabina: Austin Baby Photographer

Baby Sabina! She is as cute and as smiley as can be. I loved getting to shoot in her and her parents super cool new home. So much color and amazing light – we couldn’t go wrong!

See you soon Sabina.

Dahlia: Austin Newborn Photography

Oh baby Dahlia! A beautiful name for a beautiful girl.

Not only is this little one gorgeous, she is the daughter of a very good friend of mine and fellow photographer Tali Wildman. Many of my past couples will remember her as my dee-lightful second shooter. I can’t wait to have her back, but in the meantime I’m thinking motherhood is suiting her just fine.

Congrats Tali and Cliff! Thank you thank you for allowing me to capture these photos. XOXO

Carter, Josh + Kara: Austin Family Photography

Oh you could not order up a cuter baby than Mr. Carter here. The hat! The cheeks! I’ll take three!

His dad Josh was in the lovely Chalene and Ethan’s wedding and I was so excited when he and his wife Kara called me up for a photo session. I loved getting to spend time with these three. It was a great morning.

Thanks so much you guys! I hope to see you soon.
