I started doing photography as a hobby when I was about 10 years old, fell in love with film photography in High School and took many classes in photography during my college years. It exploded into my full time business in 2010. I started my business out of my home, then rented a studio for four years but in the summer of 2019, I purchased a beautiful store front property in Trinity Commons Shopping Center on Route 31 in Lake in the Hills, IL.
My priority in life is to live and grow as a Christian. Although I'm far from perfect, I strive to walk in the steps of Jesus. He is the light to everything I do. The name Image 1:27 Photography came from the Bible verse Genesis 1:27 "So God created human beings in His own image. In the image of God He created them; male and female He created them."
My goal as a photographer is to capture God's image (you!!), in a way that shows the beauty that each of us as humans possess and to give you images that you can enjoy for a lifetime! I focus on maternity, newborn photography through first year, but I love to photograph families with small children as well.
Thank you for checking out my page, and I look forward to taking your photographs!

She has captured some wonderful shots of my newborn. Very thankful for her and her beautiful work!" -Samantha Courtney"Image 1:27 Photography did 7 month old photos of my son, she made us comfortable from the moment we walked into her studio. Her studio was very well thought out, she had a changing table so I could easily change my son into one of her many outfits (lots she made herself)!! She even had a baby hairbrush so I could fix his crazy hair! She had an amazing selection of props and great backdrops. The taking of the photos was great too, she made my kinda sick/sleepy little guy so happy, the pictures turned out amazing!! We ❤️ Shanna!!" -Amy Hanne"I happened to stumble across Image 1:27 while online searching for family Christmas picture ideas. After seeing Shanna's portfolio, I knew I wanted her to give my family a shot When I saw the appointments were an hour not the usual 15 minute rushed shoot I have had with other photographers I was relieved, sometimes it takes 15 minutes just to warm up to a stranger telling you to "SAY CHEESE!!!!" That hour went by so fast! My kids were smiling naturally, having fun laughing and enjoying each others company all while capturing priceless memories. We have been returning ever since those Christmas photos and I am proud to display Shanna's work! I feel like a kid on Christmas morning when I get our photos back! Shanna is personable, professional, original and fun! The only thing I would change would be to have found her sooner!" -Stephanie Ann
