This is me.

First and foremost, I am a mother, to two energetic kiddos.

Brice is our analytical adventurer; he has a passion for numbers and planning and is currently obsessed with turning our living room into “The Floor is Lava” game show.

Sloane is our wild and sassy second child, is fascinated by bugs, and loves all animals, especially our dog Clyde.

I am married to “my person,” Brian, who is always planning our next family adventure and occasional date night. I am enamored by the desert, enjoy a good ice tea, and cuddling up with my family on the sofa watching a movie. 

I’m inspired by little moments we want to remember. 

Bringing my two children into the world exploded my passion for photographs, knowing how impossibly fast they seemed to change and how deeply I wanted to keep my memories bottled up. We may take the moments for granted today, but we’ll want to remember them in the future. The idea that we are creating the memories for future generations to look upon really drives me. Can you imagine having a photograph of how you stroke your child’s hair? Or how your partner playfully teases you when they are nervous? 

Those are the little things I want to capture.

I am always so stressed preparing for and taking family photos. Shelby helped me select all of our family’s clothes and even gave us a guide to help prep the kids for our session. While we were at the session, I could relax and enjoy the precious moments that Shelby captured. I now get to enjoy the artwork Shelby created of my family throughout the walls of our home.

Speechless with our family photos. The way each personality is captured and how you can feel the love right through them. These people are my world, and I couldn’t even dream of a more magical one. Thank you, Shelby!

Shelby is communicative, helpful, and warm. Our session was so easy! I got to snuggle, dance, laugh, and have real moments with my daughter that are memories in themselves. She left space for my daughter to be truly who she is. When I got the gallery, my heart burst open and flooded tears out of my eyes. They are everything I wanted and more. I cannot recommend Shelby highly enough.
