"As a fashion photographer, I work with some of the biggest brands in the world. But what motivates me is using that experience to inspire & encourage women to see themselves differently; to learn to love themselves on (and off) camera, and to give back to those who have forgotten how beautiful they really are." - Shannon Michelle
