Snow Adventure!

I just updated our Fox & Owl blog with some of the MOST amazing photos I’ve ever taken. Today my dad and I went up on the Parkway and found the most breathtaking scenes of nature. Holy smokes. I was blown away.

The snow came up to my knees in some places and I was bunny hopping around in it, making giant foot prints. We went about 5,000 feet up and it was probably 10 degrees and the wind was blowing. Can I tell you a secret?

I’m never more happy than when I’m out like that, freezing cold, camera in hand, with the reckless abandon of a child and the whole world in front of me!

Here is a peek from today!

Don’t forget to check out our F & O blog. The rest will go on Fox & Owl Studio!

My darling brother, Nathan, whom I love and adore might be one of THE best writers I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.

That being said, he uses his blog for… let us say, musings. Rather aggressive musings.

He hasn’t updated it very much but he’s determined to update it at least once a week (as a new year resolution). I’m pretty stoked on it.

My FAVORITE thing from his blog is this quote:

Yes, I am Shannon’s brother. No, my blog is nothing like hers. If you have come here to read about sunshine and bunnies, you are barking up the wrong blog. Go away.

I laughed until I cried and immediately called him and quoted it to him. Loved it.

Fox & Owl Studio

I wanted to take a second to do a quick feature of Fox & Owl Studio! We’ve been gearing up for January and the excitement of the new year. We just threw up a few photos on our blog to document what we’ve been up to recently! Lots of fun and lots of white! Check it out :]

I’ve got to stop staying up so late

I’ve been working on our website and our blog! It’s been so much fun but it’s also taken a lot of my attention. When I’m not playing with the 2’s and 3’s or cleaning, I’m dedicated to the business. I think that we’re at a point where the site is pretty well established and blogging is just fun so that is no big :] It makes me so happy in my heart to be able to see this dream realized.

Especially with my beloved.


Goodness, I’m sleepy and coming off of the break is really messing with my sleeping schedule. I’m a night owl by nature and am better suited to staying up till 1 or 2 and getting up around 9. Alas, a day job does not allow for a schedule such as that. Going on about 6 hours of sleep is okay for a couple of days but by tomorrow I’ll probably start to crash.I’m an 8 hours a night kind of girl. It keeps me pretty.

Goodnight friends, happy dreams!

Our official site is live!

Oh, my goodness! I’ve been harboring this secret for far too long! It’s finally time to tell you guys, fox and owl is finally live!

Our official .com site is! Yes, I know I’m posting this at 3:45 in the morning and it’s totally Black Friday… but am I going shopping?


Am I up right now because I want to go shopping?


I’m merely still up because Andrew and I decided to bite the bullet and hit it tonight after dinner and here I am! Announcing that we’re live! So, do me a favor


Give us feedback! Let us know, do you dig the site? Do you like the layout? Is it too text heavy? Hook us up with your thoughts!

No name

Andrew and I went out today and took a few shots with the new canon. It still has no name… so that’s what we’re calling it.

No name.

I just hope it doesn’t stick. I mean it does take fantastic photos, so it must be name worthy. I’m excited for what we do name it, because I want to recover it’s strap. Ira still needs his strap recovered. It’s a project I’m going to try and get to tomorrow. Seeing the canon strap is okay for a while but it gets old.

Here are a few goodies from today’s mini shoot:

I’m in love with no name and this barn! We’re using it for a family shoot tomorrow, it’s pretty perfect for their style too. One thing that gives me a lot of joy is to be able to provide our clients with locations that suit them. It’s so great to see their faces light up when they see the location and then the finished product! *Sigh* happy heart!

I’ll leave you with this song tonight.

A little addition…

Andrew and I have to announce a new addition to our family.

Can you guess what it is?

Can you?

No, we’re not pregnant. We got a new wee Canon! Best Buy has been running a special and we snapped up a new Canon EOS! So, now we have Ira and we need to name this new beauty. The battery is charging, the strap is waiting to be put on (which I will recover as soon as we name it), a fresh 8 gig memory card is in it’s slot, and light just waiting to be captured.


It’s like the new car smell that everyone loves. Or the new gun that my dad gets. Or the new pipe that Andrew gets. Or that perfect pair of shoes, girls you know what I’m saying. That’s what my love for cameras is like.

Right? Say what? Cameras?


But it’s true. The geek in me just totally loves them! And, I’m so very okay with that!

I’m also super jazzed about the new private practice tonight. I was afraid we wouldn’t be able to be friends after the episode that was done in bad taste. Can’t even handle it. But, I think we might be okay. I’m working on forgivingness.

I have sewing to do. I’m so stoked on our final decision with packaging for Fox & Owl it’s just so flipping cute, personal, green, and re-usable!

Happy Thursday Eve!

The Animal Print Shop

In all of my blog reading I’ve stumbled upon this lovely little shop. As I was browsing through the prints I found an owl photo!!!! Check it out…

Isn’t it wonderful?! When I was first looking around I thought they were drawn. Perhaps by colored pencil… but upon closer inspection, they’re photographs! I just love this one, it’s so magical. Look at those soulful eyes! Here are a few of my other favorites

Aren’t these the most precious animal photos ever? I love love love the sweet innocence captured of the lamb and porcupine! The photos are taken by a woman named Sharon Montrose. She has a great page on her website that goes into detail about how she came to photograph animals and where she gets her subjects. You should check it out! It’s pretty magical. I think A and I would have so much fun taking photos of wild and domestic animals! Maybe we can find some foxes and owls? Eh eh?

Happy Friday!

Halloween Hippies

Happy Halloween! Andrew and I decided to go as hippies this year. We had a wee party last night at my friend Katie’s! We won best costume and a bottle of wine, so exciting, and we also carved a fox and owl pumpkin! It turned out great.

I took this with my phone, it stood up to the photo test pretty well this time. Andrew and I were impressed! We haven’t tried the wine yet but I’m hoping it will be wonderful.

We also had a mini photo shoot today with our costumes on. I got really tickled at work on Friday… we had our Halloween party at school right? So I come in dressed like this (see photos) and everyone looks at me and says, “So, Shannon… what are you?” It was too funny. I have feathers in my hair and a daisy chain on my head and a flower painted on my face. Apparently I can pull this off at any given time.


So, here are a few from the shoot today. Freaking love how Andrew looks!

Life is good. I hope you’re dress up weekend has been as great as ours! We’re looking forward to candy and movies tomorrow! Not scary ones though, simply because I don’t do scary movies.

Weekend Recap

Hiya! We had such a grand weekend! We spent Friday on the parkway photographing EVERYTHING and ended up having a very late dinner of McDonald’s with my brother at work. We spent Saturday with each other, relaxing on the porch and reading. Our friend Jeff came over and played with us for a little bit too! Sunday was filled with The Vine, family and photographs. We had our first mini shoot (which was mostly play – SO fun!!!) at one of our favorite spots with some of our favorite people. Here is a peak of the shoot…

We had a blast! Nathan and Taylor were a lot of fun to work with. I can’t wait to really sink our teeth into the market here and get busy with some super fun people and amazing photos!

We have blue tick and plott hounds right next door to us. Can we talk about how great their wee barks and howls are? I’ve wanted some kind of coon hound for as long as I can remember. I’m pretty sure she’ll be a blue tick and I’ll name her Daisy (since daisies are my favorite). Ah, it’s a pink sunset tonight. Pink sunsets are my favorite, they’re like a gift just for me. Andrew feels the same way about orange sunsets. We’re working on a new project which is exciting and scary all at once. I think we’ll have something to show for it before Christmas!

I’m inspired and in the mood to create! I think some proper time with my sewing machine is in order!

As always, if you’d like to see more of our photo shoot head on over to our website and check it out!

Happy Monday Eve!
