Shannon’s 25th Birthday Shoot| By: Dana Arnold Photography

Meet Shannon. She is a perfect reason why moving in the military isn’t as stressful because Shannon was the first to be my friend and offer to hang out! She welcomed me on facebook with a friendly smile and it was only a short conversation through Facebook messenger that I knew this chick was going to be someone I would be proud to call my friend. Our first date? Her place. Yeah, she moves fast 😉 What were we doing? Baking cutout cookies with her fancy kitchen aid! She was teaching me all about the proper ways to mix the icing her family had perfected, and how long the cutouts should be baked and cool. She served me sweet tea, let me play with her dog, and when I met her husband and found out they were geeks like my husband and I, I was even more in love with this chick!

Shannon is the type of person who will welcome you with open arms and no judgments and will be your friend when you need one most. Her smile is contagious and her beauty is radiating. When I posted on my Facebook that I was looking for someone willing to do an adult cake smash for their birthday, she jumped right on to the idea, mentioning her birthday was in August. I screamed “YES” from the top of my lungs because I knew she was going to go all out, and I was right! From balloons, cake, alcohol, word board, confetti, a tutu, and professional styled hair and makeup. She was stunning when I saw her get out of her car, and I knew this was going to be an EPIC Session!

Shannon, my dear, thank you for being my friend. Thank you for being in my life. You are so kind and wonderful and beautiful and I hope your birthday is filled with happiness, just like you fill my life with happiness <3
