About

Cheryl Shanahan is a self-taught photographer based in Richmond, Virginia.

“I photograph things that enthuse and amuse me. My garden and travels serve as the greatest inspirations, which I translate onto products that I personally love to use, such as note cards, journals, bag tags and calendars,” says Cheryl, who grew up in Connecticut and New Hampshire.

“Every Lucky Ginger Studio product combines inspiration and an image with a bit of ingenuity. Most flowers you see grows in my garden (I am a confirmed hydrangea junkie); water-inspired images come home with me from the lake. In addition to doing all of the photography and post-production, I also design original graphic elements to complement photographic images on certain products.”

All Lucky Ginger Studio products are made using 100% made-in-America components.

  1. Cheryl,

    I was looking to see if there will be another one smart gallery thing and i came across your website. I especially liked your lost city bus pics. Your photogrpahs are very pretty, vibrant color and technical quality. But your bus series is evocative. They made me look deeper, studying the details, making me wonder what was going on in and behind the photo. I enjoyed your site very much,
    thanks,
    Dennis Papa
