About Me

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)


Important info:


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!
