"Shelley is VERY professional and takes time to get to know exactly what you want.  She's great because she gives you tips on what to wear and what type of clothing photographs well.  She also, helps with poses...which is great because my husband and I were clueless about what happens in a photo shoot.  I felt very comfortable with her and LOVE LOVE LOVE the results!!!  We are EXTREMELY pleased and definantly recommend her! She made us look like movie stars without taking away our personalities.  Give Shelley a try and you won't regret it!"

"Shelley did a wonderful job photographing our wedding. She is very professional and has a great technical knowledge of photography which really shows in the quality of her pictures. Shelley worked hard to make sure that everything was planned out before the big day so there were no surprises and we got all the pictures we wanted. She really took the time to understand what we wanted for our photos and did a great job making the photo sessions fun and low stress. I would highly recommend her!"

"Shelley is the best of the best. Not only were our newborn photographs out-of-this-world outstanding, but we had a blast during the whole process. One of the most memorable moments in our son's life captured in the most elegant and professional fashion. We had grandparents and family members in tears of joy over how gorgeous they turned out. I couldn't recommend anyone more, hands down."

"Shelley did an amazing job capturing our precious 2 week old son. She has such a sweet and gentle way with newborns that is truly a gift! I had no idea the amount of patience it takes to get babies in the perfect position for that ideal shot. Her use of natural light along with creative backdrops and even hand-made props makes for a stunning selection of images to choose from. Shelley was a joy to work with and our family was absolutely thrilled with the images she captured during our session!"

Hana N

"I've always felt really uncomfortable or nervous having someone take my pictures. Especially when you have to pose for the photographer and have to just hope it turns out right. But Shelley really made having a photo shoot fun :). She makes you feel totally relaxed and you never have to force a smile with Shelley constantly praising every picture. She's all for exposing the natural beauty and happiness in a person. And although you may not notice it while she's taking the pictures of you, she knows exactly what moments she wants to capture and how to take the shot that will make you shine. Not only is she a very professional photographer but she is also a very sweet, cute, and caring person."

"Shelley was our photographer for my daughters senior portraits. My daughter wanted me to join them in their session and we had so much fun. Shelly was professional and sweet and my daughter felt very comfortable with her.  The photos are great and we are very happy!!! Thank you again Shelley!"

"Shelley has an innate gift for capturing the best version of you in her pictures.  She knows how to capture beautiful moments in the most natural of settings without it looking contrived.  As an individual she is gracious and sweet, making you feel comfortable and at ease.  She has a true talent."

"Oh my! Where do I begin? Shelley is absolutely amazing. She took my portraits at a beautiful park in Portland and make me feel extraordinarily beautiful during the process. She was sweet, silly, and was able to make me laugh and feel comfortable while being in front of the camera. I'm so glad I worked with a professional who made me feel great not only during the experience, but through the end result as well. I was blown away by the quality of her work and how beautiful I felt looking at the images she took of me. I would recommend her without a single hesitation. Thanks for the experience, Shelley!"

And the results are stunning! She has amazing attention to detail and passion for delivering only the best to her clients. I'd definitely recommend her!"
