Welcome to


I get it.

Picking a photographer can be hard, the last thing you want is to go through all the effort and come out with boring photos that don’t show your families true personalities and connections.

My vibe is fun but focused (no pun intended). I’m super real, as making a real connection allows you to let loose and be your true selves together. No stress, no worry!!

I believe in capturing authentic, love filled photos and making you look damn good in the process.

I’ve been photographing love, joy and yes; the occasional bout of tears for over 18 years!

Having this much experience allows me to stay calm under pressure and know just what to do in any situation. You can relax knowing I’m focused on creating a stress-free and fun vibe. When the atmosphere is like this, the magic can flow and we can have a super enjoyable experience working together.

I see every session as a chance to share an epic adventure with lots of laughs along the way!!

Newcastle Photographer - Shannon Richmond Photography


I’ve photographed people in just about everywhere in our beautiful Newcastle and Hunter region. I know the best spots for family sessions, maternity and anything else you can think of. I love our hometown and would love a chance to show you around and find a special place for your photos. Some of my favourite locations include Morpeth Park with its gorgeous green grounds and big old fig trees and Paterson Park with a very forest and European feel.
