The real you is beautiful.

The unposed you. Unmasked. Free from expectations.

That's the you that I want to photograph.

These are the kind of photos that bring up memories. That capture those subtle details of the ones you love. The ones that remind you of the milestones in your life. These photographs aren't static and posed, they are a reflection of your story. Perfectly imperfect. And that is beautiful.

Meet your Photographer

Welcome friend, I’m Shelby

I've been photographing professionally for the last six years however, I started documenting humans long before. I've always been fascinated with documentation as a way of finding beauty in the ordinary. Creating art out of reality as a means of shifting my perspective.

Over the years I have come to understand that photographing people is a collaborative process. Which is why your story matters to me. I am merely an observer, it is you who gives these images life.

These are the most MAGICAL, MEANINGFUL photos I've ever had taken of me and my family. Shelby went above and beyond from the beginning and wow-ed me every step of the way. She makes you feel at ease and right at home the minute you meet her, has an incredibly artistic eye for capturing moments effortlessly, and is so professional and personable. First photo session of many more to come!

Shelby is phenomenal! Our photos are organic and not posed. She did a beautiful job of capturing the essence of our wedding and my guests even commented on how amazing and kind she was at the wedding. She knew exactly what she was doing and I could not have asked for anyone better. She is also just a kind and genuine person. I would (and do) recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer and I’m so thankful I picked her! I will cherish the memories and photos for the rest of my life.

Shelby was so enthusiastic and patient with our 2 year old. The shoot never felt awkward or forced. The images that she sent us were absolutely perfect. She captured us in our true nature and I’ll treasure these images for the rest of my life.

My family and I had a wonderful experience with Shelby. She was incredibly professional and kind the entire process and made my toddlers feel so at ease during the session. We can't wait to work with her again!.“
