Hello! I am Shelly and am a family and newborn photographer serving the north Dallas area. I have lived most of my life here in the metroplex with a few brief stints away in College Station and Austin. My husband and I met our senior year at Texas A&M and we are both die hard Aggies. We got married three years after collage and have 9 year old twin boys.
After graduation from Texas A&M with a degree in Marketing and Finance, I spent 10 years in the airline and travel industry. It was a great job to have as a young professional with no kids. I was able to travel the world and explore five different continents for “work”. My husband and I still love to travel and we take our kids to new places whenever possible. Our current goal is to take them to all 50 states before they graduate from high school. We have 20 states down and 30 more to go! However, we have a lot of the bigger states covered.
What else can I admit? My camera is always with me and I love to capture my boys candidly in their everyday life. I can usually be found with my camera in one hand and a Starbucks in the other. I am a total boy mom and love to watch collage football. I have a love for simplicity and clutter makes me anxious. On weekends our family can be found grilling out in the backyard. I am a total sucker for a good steak and a glass of red. Kenny Chesney and the Zac Brown Band top my music playlist. The Caribbean is my happy place. I long to be at the Soggy Dollar bar drinking a Painkiller. Recently our family has fallen in love with the Pacific Northwest. We have traveled to a small island on the Puget Sound for the past three summers to visit friends. The days are filled with crabbing, digging for clams, hiking Mt. Rainer and devouring all of the amazing food from the local markets. It’s pure heaven.
I love that I can freeze time and capture and image a family that they will keep for generations. I see myself as my client’s memory keeper and strive to capture the honest beauty + details in whatever season of life they are enjoying.
