Welcome to The Camera Cottage photography studio located in South Park, PA. I specialize in photographing High School Seniors, Newborns and Families.
[About Me] Hello! I’m Shannon Bonidie. My love of photography dates back to my own high school years, where I learned to photograph with a film camera and developed my own portraits in the dark room. I loved the challenge of capturing that perfect moment and seeing the image come to life as I envisioned it behind the scenes.
[Why I love photography] It’s all about preserving memories of what once was. Lets face it, although we’d love to freeze the moments of our children forever at times, we can’t stop them from growing up. Photographing your children allows for an everlasting story of their life you can always look back on and can be shared for generations. Your senior year is a stepping stone from being a kid to growing into an adult and making important life decisions. Life can be so fast-paced and those little important things that evolve you into the person you are [such as sports, hobbies/interests] can quickly be forgotten.
[These are a few of my favorite things] My Family, Sweet Tea, The Color Blue, Sunshine, The Voice, Chocolate, Singing anything on the radio, Softball, Pizza, Target/Ikea/Kirklands Shopping Trips, Elephants, Old Cameras
