Aloha and E Komo Mi (hello and welcome, come in)!

Aloha! I am Shannon, the head photographer of Aloha Sunshine Photography, LLC. A Chocolate eating, surfer, sunset chasing, learned the old fashion way with a FILM camera and darkroom, printing every photo, essential oils gal and Mom to over 1/2 dozen Keiki (children ages 3--19 years, we had a few in our 40's--hence chocolate eating is #1). Exercise Physiologist by degree, photographer by passion. 

I offer on location family sessions, class of 'awesome Seniors, maternity, children, beach, sunset, in home lifestyle "day in the life", and Silhouettes (my favorite setting to shoot!). I have an indoor studio for those fantastically fun smash cake sessions with a variety of backdrops and props for children of any age. Back to school photos are more fun with milestones written on them! 

I look forward to capturing these memories, the fun in the every day, connections with family, the moments in time that only a photo can freeze. I believe a photograph should be printed and offer the option of adding a professionally printed and designed, 20 page flush mount album to your session.

Message or to book your session soon as I only take 4 sessions per month! 

Plan ahead for your upcoming holiday cards and photos!

Session fee is $575 for up to 5 people (additional people are $25 each) at the location of your choosing. This also includes the session (and outfit changes within the session time) my time and talent, editing of images, an online gallery for you to share on social media and email (relatives can order prints from here as well). Within the gallery you will have the ability to print wall art (canvases, metal, standouts, etc) and regular high quality prints on a variety of papers through a professional lab (not available to consumers). As a bonus, you will receive your digital images to download in high resolution and a boxed set of mounted 4x6 prints.  To include an 8x8 or 6x8, flush mount, custom designed and professionally printed album, the session fee is $675.  To add a 10x10 or 8x11, flush mount, custom designed and professionally printed album, the session fee is $775.  No need for an album, but you would still like to have mounted 4x6 prints from your session, then the option of boxed, mounted keepsake prints is for you.  This would be an addition of $100 (for 10), $175 (for 20) and $250 (for 30).
