for the senior who wants fresh, fun and personality filled photos!

Are you ready for the ultimate senior portrait experience? Then hold onto your hat (and yes, I truly hope you wear a hat at your senior session because they are the CUTEST!) and let's GO! Yes, I'm Nationally published and an award winning photographer, but that's just the fine print. What I really care about is creating a fun, memory filled, exciting, senior session that will be better than your wildest dreams.

I am located in Wichita, KS, however, seniors travel from all over Kansas (and even from out of state) to work with Valerie Shannon Photography. I'm currently booking 2023 Seniors. What are you waiting on!? Let's do this thing!

I absolutely love working with Val, being apart of Vals Gals! She is one of the most amazing senior photographers. She makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, telling you how to move around and is so so sweet and funny. She picks and finds the spots for your pictures and also is very on top of her work! You can tell that she is a very hard worker and cares about what she does! She’s truly amazing!

Choosing Valerie as my senior photographer is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Valerie made me feel incredibly comfortable and extremely confident. She has a way of connecting with you that makes you feel like you've know each-other forever. Not only is she sweet but, she is amazing at what she does. She knew exactly how to tailor my session for me and made my personality come through a lot. I also loved how Valerie was able to connect me to a stylist, Lauren, and my make-up artist. It's the little touches like that that really show how much thought she puts into every single session. I would highly recommend her for anyones senior session.

Oh my goodness, Valerie thank you for such an amazing session! You exceeded every one of my expectations, I could not have asked for a better afternoon! I felt so confident and so important; there was no doubt in my mind that the pictures would turn out amazing! I felt like I was able to trust every suggestion you gave me. Your artistic vision and attention to every detail made such a huge difference, honestly, there is no one I would trust more to capture this time in my life. I also had a blast being with you! I've heard people rave about you, and say great things about how fun their session was, but I had no idea it would be this fun!
