Hi, I'm Shannon Squires Toews

I enjoy the quiet wisdom children hold, and how their eyes tell a story. They are so simple, yet so complex.

My goal is to provide you with the tools and instruction you need to create captivating fine art portraits. I’ll teach you my award-winning techniques, which I used to win the Professional Photographers of America Grand Imaging Award (GIA) twice in the “Children Portrait” category, and the overall GIA winner (from over 5,000 entries) in 2021. Teaching is my passion, and I've been sharing my techniques all over the United States and abroad for the past few years.

As a full-time photographer since 2010, I’ve earned the Certified Professional Photographer, the Master Photographer, Master Artist, and Photographic Craftsman degrees all through Professional Photographers of America.

Like many of you, I’m more than a photographer. I’m a mom of three beautiful children, and a wife to a wonderful husband who encourages me to continue to become more than I already am. I can relate to what parents go through, and hopefully, the tools and lessons I share through my Creative Academy will help achieve your own photographic and artistic goals.

You are appreciated, and I thank you for being here. Now, let’s get started on creating some amazing fine art children portraits!
