Connie Shuffett, behind the camera at January June, is a natural light photographer.


About my photography:  I am a natural-light portrait photographer based in Kentucky. Blessed to live in a small town with access to some of the most beautiful landscapes that country-town living has to offer

"Clean and natural" is what I hear from clients and I love and embrace that compliment because my goal is to provide clean, natural, and beautiful portraits.  Period.  I use few props and keep my style of editing to a minimally-processed look so you will have timeless portraits that become treasured family heirlooms for generations.

About the photographer:  Many photographers will say that they've always had a passion for photography but I have to admit that I don't necessarily belong in that group.  Yes, I love what I do but owning a photography business was not on my radar whatsoever.  But about 5 years ago (after years of taking very mediocre pictures of my children--sorry kids!) I decided to seriously engage my brain with learning our new digital camera as well as investing in instruction for a beginning photographer.  Best.  Decision.  Ever.  I'll always consider myself a student of photography and I'm good with that because there's always something to learn.

About me:  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.  Recently retired from primary education, I had 30 great years of teaching Kindergarten, first and second grade.

More about ME:

I was born and raised in Kentucky.

I never ever miss an episode of THE WALKING DEAD or CHOPPED

I lived in Grand Forks long enough to earn my bachelor's in education from the University of North Dakota.

I wholeheartedly believe that travel is the best educator.

And....I think if people would use better grammar and be polite, the world would be a much better place.
