I’m Shannon, owner and photographer of Belle Lola Photography based out of Winchester, VA serving Northern Virginia, DC, Maryland and surrounding areas.  Mother to a beautiful little girl, wild little man and wife to a hunk of a man! I’m a lover of chocolate, coffee, fashion, romance and all things boho.

I’m sure you are asking yourself, “why Belle Lola?” or “who is Belle?”  First of all, Belle (pronounced Bell) Lola is French for beautiful Lola.  The beautiful Lola my business is named for is my grandmother, Lola Dean.  She was a stunningly beautiful woman on the inside and out.  She had this elegance and class about her.  It was in the way she walked, talked and treated the people around her.  Her laugh was contagious.  Her house had pink walls, white carpet and large ornate gold framed mirrors.  She had big Texas blonde hair and wore gaudy jewelry.  She was quite a character and one of the most influential women in my life.  That makes this business so much more than just a business.  My goal is to capture women and the families that they create through all stages of life and provide an experience that goes beyond just having your photo taken.  Belle Lola Photography is my heart and soul and I hope to get to share it with you!
