From Our Editors
Photographer Shannon Youngblood has two specialties. The first is capturing the happiness and tranquility in the faces of children, families, and newlyweds, often using natural lighting and rustic backdrop. Her second specialty is creating alphabet photography. Camera in hand, she ventures into natural and urban environments, finding scenes and objects that resemble letters: the branches of a tree might make a V; a wrought-iron fence might form the curves of a G. Those images then combine to spell words, paying tribute to anything from a family name to a person's favorite condiment.
