Welcome to Hovater Photography! My name is Shannon and I am a true North Carolinian; born and raised in northeastern North Carolina. I love this place and cannot imagine living anywhere else. There is a strong pull to the coast and I understand why we have so many visitors each year.
Things to know about me (important and useless trivia to follow)
I have always loved photography and cannot remember a time when a camera was not by my side.
I am a member of Professional Photographers of America. I have my business license. I am insured. I have an arsenal of "back up" equipment. What does all that mean? It means I take my business seriously. This is my business and my passion.
Now for the useless info!
We will have fun when we do your session. I may sing or dance to entertain you and your children...ok, maybe I do it to entertain myself too. Don't let that scare you! Taking family pictures should be fun...don't you want a happy, non-stressed look in your photos?
I have a lot of animals. A lot. Dogs, cats, and a ferret, all of which are rescued. If you ask me about my critters, I will tell you all about them like the proud pet parent I am.
I am married to an amazing man who loves to carry my camera bag. If you're lucky, you might meet him.
My favorite color is purple.
I love all things zombie. Books, movies, television, if it has a zombie I'm in!
Still with me? Great! Please contact me if you have any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you!
