Celebrating Your Body | West Palm Boudoir Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

This is a woman that I have photographed a couple of times. I have photographed her wedding and a few other sessions.

This past weekend was spent driving 10 hours to photograph a wedding, oh, and stopping along the way to photograph a 2 hour family session. Before that, it was weekends spent second shooting weddings, answering countless emails, calling potential couples (it’s engagement season), editing for other photographers (alongside my own work), booking family sessions, boudoir sessions…BREATHE.
