Meet Shannon

Hey there! I’m Shannon. I’m a former middle school teacher, dog mom, photographer, and blogger from Orlando, Florida. I believe that everything that you do in life should be in pursuit of the things that you are most passionate about. For me, adventure is everything. I want to experience it all and capture it with my camera while encouraging others to pursue their dreams as well. My husband Eric and I built the tiny house of our dreams (literally WE built it) in order to open up our budget for travel. By making alternative lifestyle choices, we have been able to open our lives up to travel and adventure. Now, we want to show others how they can make their dreams accessible as well.

Adventuring With Shannon is both my business and passion project. I am a former middle school teacher who decided to pursue adventure full-time. I loved teaching, but I realized that I was putting off my dreams just to live a life that everyone else approved of. One day, I decided to change that. I am passionately pursuing adventure in every way that I can and helping others to do the same!

I created Adventuring With Shannon because I am passionate about making adventure accessible to everyone.

I believe that adventure and travel can bring so much joy and growth to a person’s life, and it makes me so sad when I see people who talk themselves out of pursuing their dreams! I often hear people say things like “Wow that’s really amazing, I wish I could do that” or “I would travel there if I could, but it’s not possible for me.” Usually, people are held back by three things: money, time, or fear. My goal is to use Adventuring With Shannon to help every person find the ability to pursue their dreams and take the leap.

In order to help make travel accessible to everyone and encourage others to passionately pursue their own adventures, I am using Adventuring With Shannon to take on each of those three roadblocks that keep people from achieving their dreams.

Money: For people who struggle to find the money to travel, I am creating guides to help people incorporate travel into their budget slowly over time as well as sharing travel hacks like finding ridiculously cheap flights (Join the FREE Facebook Group here for incredible deals). This blog also covers alternative lifestyle choices like building our own Tiny House and living in a travel trailer full-time that have allowed us to personally prioritize travel in our budget.

Time: For people who struggle to find the time to travel, I specialize in crafting itineraries that make the MOST of your time in a location. My goal is that people see that they CAN travel, even if it means just going somewhere for a weekend. My travel guides are designed to maximize your time in a location without exhausting yourself completely. This will allow you to maximize your vacation time and feel like you can achieve your travel dreams within your scheduled PTO.

Fear: For people who are afraid to take the leap, I’m hoping to inspire confidence in my readers that will enable them to face their fears headfirst. I offer group trips for women who aren’t ready (or don’t want to) travel solo. These trips are designed to create confidence in each traveler while also providing them with the most amazing experience possible. For those who don’t want to join group trips, I have created helpful advice and tips for travel that will help quell your fears and make you feel prepared.

Interested in Travel Planning Services?

It’s time for you to take the leap and passionately pursue YOUR dreams, and I’m here to make it easy for you!

After planning so many of my own amazing trips, I decided to become a travel planner so that I can help others can follow their dreams as well. If you want adventure but don’t know where to start, you can hire me to plan your next amazing adventure. We will work together to plan the ideal trip for you and make your dreams a reality.

So what are you waiting for? You could be on your dream vacation soon, you just have to go for it.

As a professional photographer, I have two goals for my photography. The first is to capture the beauty of the world and share it with others to help inspire them to go see it themselves. The second is to capture rare moments that others may never get the chance to experience in a way that makes them come alive so that I can make that moment accessible to them through my photography.

My true passions are landscape and wildlife photography. For landscape, I specialize in photographing mountains and waterfalls. To purchase my prints, follow this link. For wildlife, I specialize in large animals because I think that they are truly amazing.

I also offer portrait services for those who are interested. I absolutely love taking photos of people on their travels and living their lives. I am a portrait photographer who shoots with a bohemian vibe. If that is something that interests you, you can hire me to come shoot your adventure, lifestyle, and elopement shoots. I will travel to you!
