If I ever had a session that I wished could go on forever, this would be one! These kids were camera ready and so much fun. Definitely looking forward to photographing them again!
My have these girls grown up in one year! It’s most evident in the youngest one, who I think has been taking notes from big sis when it comes to hamming it up for me. Big sis is so into modeling and I love it! This year mom joined in and I captured an image of the three of them that makes my heart smile. 🙂
Meet Shonnese Stanback of Stanback Law Firm!
A little about Shonnese
I was born in Durham, NC, have lived in Poughkeepsie, NY, but was mostly raised in Marietta, GA. So, I’m from the South, but apparently don’t have a Southern accent (thanks to NY)! I’m a life-long musician, a lover of sports and entertainment, and a UNC Tar Heel. I currently live in Durham, NC, and love to travel as much as possible.
Tell us about what you do
I am the owner of Stanback Law Firm, PLLC, located in Cary, NC. I began practicing law in 2000, and have been practicing family law for more than 10 years. My practice serves the Triangle Area, with a high concentration in Wake County. In 2009, I became an Authorized Athlete Representative (an agent) with USA Track & Field. I currently represent 7 young track and field athletes, as well as a popular reality show star.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I’m one of those weird people who enjoys exercising! It helps that I have good friends with whom to workout, and push me not to cheat! I love to go to concerts or anything where live music is playing. During the summer, you’ll mostly find me at professional and youth track and field meets. I fell in love with track and field many years ago, which makes representing professional track athletes so much fun! When I can gather my golf crew together, we will go hit a local golf course, and spend an afternoon re-writing the rules of golf (haha!)
What is your favorite dish to cook?
I prefer to bake. So, just about any kind of cake or cookie is fun for me to bake. I haven’t mastered pies yet.
Shonnese’s words of encouragement
I believe that we only get one chance to live happily, so I try everyday to make sure that I take one more step toward living my best life. “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.” ~Harvey Fierstein
This family is one of the reasons I travel to Durham, NC each year. I’ve had the priviledge of creating memories for them since the lil miss was a baby! Here she is at age three, so full of personality. She arrived ready to show everyone what she could do and she did it VERY WELL! So proud of her!
This session was one of the most entertaining I had all year! I’ve been fortunate to photograph people who love to have FUN! We shared so many laughs – it’s very evident that they are a happy couple. I’m so thrilled that they chose me to document their pregnancy! Beautiful people and it was a blast to be in their company. They are going to be awesome parents!!
