A big thank you to Chapel Hill Magazine (yay, North Carolina!) for the truly lovely feature on BeautifulTogether.org, photography, and our family, in the current month's issue: https://issuu.com/shannonmedia/docs/chmmarchissuu_f04c6ae76b2294

And more gratitude to +Sara Harris for the fun photo of our family - plus, another photo credit to Sophie Lackey (!!!) for a photo she shot of me in Ethiopia. Seriously, I think this is her 5th published image, and the girl's not even trying ; )

Trying to figure out the best way to describe the beautiful impact behind these moments with +Jaleel King, and I keep coming back to this apt and emotional title: The Power of Photography & Forgiveness.

Jaleel was eight years old when he was shot in the back by a neighbor with a sawed-off shotgun. Listen as he shares where he goes from here, years later, demonstrating a level of forgiveness that many of us may not even consider.
I am proud to call you my friend, Jaleel.

An extraordinarily inspiring new reDefine Show, on +Adorama TV:

Grateful to have been part of another jam-packed, way inspirational +Nikon USA Ambassador Summit in New York this week. So motivating, to get to see the extraordinary work that my fellow Ambassadors do, passionately championing such different causes, all dear to our hearts. And a huge thank you, Nikon, for caring so much about this ambassador program - and to +Mike Corrado for making it all happen. Excited about the many amazing products, endeavors, and collaborations on the horizon.

Show of hands, all those who could use more joy, sunshine and laughter in their lives right about now - this child has got a whole lot to spare.

I LOVE THIS IMAGE - and every single one of these furry faces. This one photograph took about 3 1/2 hours to make. We brought all our pets into the studio and spent the first couple of hours just trying to calm them down while (sometimes literally) wrestling them into a more peaceful state. Then came the lighting of various fur tones, using five separate lights, and the spacing apart for more distinct captures and the calming them back to sleep - and finally getting our Big Dog to fall back asleep in an otherwise awkward position (miracle). I was pretty determined to not do any head swaps or multiple exposure composites, and I was thrilled to finally get to this shot . SO, Happy New Year from all of our "rescue" pets, who all like to "rescue" our socks from the dryer, our food from the counter, and our threads and often stuffing from various furniture items around our home.

Shot with +Nikon USA D5 and 24-70 2.8 lens - and all kinds of blood, sweat and tears. #NikonLove #PetPhotography

The children that have been able to flee #Aleppo are leaving the biggest city in Syria – and endless bombing, drastic food shortages, an increasing lack of medical aid and the heartbreaking destruction of their home and communities. Most horrific of all, they have lost their family; they have lost their parents. Thousands and thousands of children are now suddenly orphans. And, if they are “lucky”, they are refugees, too.

Our new BeautifulTogether.org project is focused on urgently helping the most innocent of us - young children deeply injured, in so very many ways. We want to feed, clothe and shelter 100 Aleppo Orphans immediately. Immediately, immediately.

Please read the detail behind our latest project, including the breakdown costs of what it will take to help these children get through winter in a newly-built refugee camp, a detailed listing of all the things you can do, buy and create to make a real difference - and a simple request: HELP US HELP THEM?

As always 100% of your donations will go directly to these children and what they need right now to survive:
