A Chat with Jen Shannon Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I offer a fabulous experience for women of all ages. In addition to taking the most beautiful photographs you’ve ever seen of yourself, you get to be pampered with professional hair and makeup [services]. Be sure to plan an evening out, because you’re going to look hot!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Women frequently choose to be behind the camera: to hide instead of being photographed themselves. It’s time that women start accepting themselves and celebrate who they are by bringing their inner beauty out. Modern Women’s Portraiture does just that.
What do you love most about your job?
Showing women their true beauty is what I love most. These sessions give an everyday woman the chance to be pampered and then photographed in a way she likely never has. Many times, these sessions reveal to the woman that, although she may not be dressed up every day, she’s beautiful and celebrated.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I had one client tell me that it felt nice to finally put herself first and have photographs that her children would pass down through generations. She had realized the importance of having something beautiful to show generations that she would not be around to see.
