“…we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens once a certain number of times, and a very small number, really.  How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that’s so deeply a part of your being that you can’t even conceive your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems so limitless.”  – Paul Bowles

I’m thinking on those “perfect” evenings… those times where we don’t plan to make such an impactful memory with those we love… but they just happen. Don’t you wish during those times you could remember each detail?  The way the clouds look, the way the grass feels on your toes, the slight breeze, the way your “special someone” feels snuggled in close? I love summer evenings…

We cherish each and every time we are able to visit New York City.  We have had the pleasure of going about once a year and we’ve slowly grown a wonderful, sweet, and loving client base while there.  Well, we are thinking it’s about time for us to visit again and now we only have 3 more spots left for our “In Your City” sessions.  These sessions will take place in the beginning of August in Central Park.  We’d be delighted to hear from you if you are interested.  If so, please contact Emily at:  contact@shannonho.com for further information and details.  Or, if you are in the nearby Hamptons area, see our post below!






I truly enjoy photographing on the beach – even though we don’t get to as often as I’d like.  I keep going back to the photographs I captured below… they are among my favorites.  It was a breathtaking day and I’ve never seen so much fog… it gave a romantic, quiet feel to these images.  Since we hope to visit New York City soon, we wanted to see if there was any interest in the Hamptons area for our “In Your City” or “Day in the Life” sessions. Images like these would make the perfect piece of art for your vacation home.  If interested, please contact Emily at: contact@shannonho.com  Thanks!










i hope everyone has a happy, happy fourth of july!
