Connie Shuffett, behind the camera at
January June Photography,
is a natural light portrait photographer.
About my photography:
"Clean + natural" is what my clients love about their finished portraits. And I love and embrace that compliment because my goal is to provide natural, clean, and beautiful portraits. Period. My use of natural-light, very few props, and minimally-processed edits ensures clients have timeless portraits that will become treasured family heirlooms for generations.
Kentucky has some of the prettiest light and landscapes around but I am always ready for a little *travel*! If a destination session is in your future, I can have my gear, passport, and travel-on ready to go in no time flat!
About the photographer:
Many professional photographers say they've always had a passion for photography and while that's basically true for me, I'm one of those photographers who found her BIG love of photography later in life. After years of taking very mediocre pictures of my children (sorry, kids!) I took learning how to really use our family's camera. I invested in beginners' photography instruction (best.decision.ever) and I practiced. And practiced, and practiced, and...you get the idea. I went all-in with my business in 2015 and "January June Photography" was born. (What did I do before my photography-life? I taught K-2 for 30 years.)
Born and raised in Kentucky, I make my home in Greensburg. I am married to my ultra-supportive husband Stan, and we are parents to a son and daughter: Landon, a senior in college, and Kiley, a UK-grad and small business-owner living in Illinois with our wonderful son-in-law Daniel. Our family is rounded out by our cats Miguel and Sophie and their mama, Belle.
MORE about me:
The town where I live has only 3 traffic lights.
I would love to have sunshine E V E R Y day. Spring and summer are my favorite seasons.
I never miss an episode of "Chopped".
I earned my Bachelor's Degree at the University of North Dakota and while living there was blessed to often see the northern lights. They are simply stunning! (On my bucket list is to see those pretty lights again from Scandinavia.)
