Fernwood Photography developed out of a constant desire to capture the beauty and uniqueness of children and nature. I am not a professional, nor have I had professional training. I JUST LOVE photography! As I look around me I see everything in pictures. I developed my skills through experience and online tutorials. I have a long way to go to learn all I should know, but I am proud of the journey I have taken up to this point! With each passing month I improve my skills.
I tend to shoot on the road I live on. It is a gorgeous country setting with trees, wooden fences, woods and a field. However, I am willing to travel to the site of your choice. I use natural light and prefer to use nature as my backdrop. I do not have a studio but I can do some indoor photography. The space I use is small, so I prefer to only do sessions involving small children and newborns.
My name is Shannon Kirk. I am married to my high school sweetheart and a mother of two very energetic boys. I have been a teacher for 14 years. I prefer to do most of my photography during the summer months. I began working with 5 year olds and now I work with 8 year olds. I have had the opportunity to photograph children of all ages, families and newborns. In addition, I love doing senior portraiture and engagement sessions. I am willing to try a pet session if your pet is well behaved. I am a huge animal lover and have two Labradors of my own.
Generally, I schedule several months in advance. My calendar seems to fill up quickly, so please do not hesitate to get on my calendar for the following summer! If I do not have a spot available at the time you are interested in you can choose to go on a waiting list. I would contact you if there is a cancellation.
I will give you pricing information if you contact me. Most sessions are priced between $50 and $125. This includes my time shooting the session as well as the hours upon hours I put into editing. Prices are always subject to change. I decided to purchase this site in effort to display my photos in an attractive and flattering way, in addition to creating convenience to the client. You will notice you can purchase the prints and products you desire right from this site.
