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 10 year old twin boys.
Photography is a way for me to slow down and look for God’s fingerprints in everyday life. Picking up the camera requires me to be present and in the moment. As any mom will tell you, childhood goes quickly and I can feel it slipping through my fingers as each year passes. I want to remember all of the love + joy in our season of life. Most of all I want my boys to look back and remember that they were loved very much. I want this for my clients too. I want to give them photographs that freeze time and capture family connections. Images that they will cherish for generations to come. I see myself as my client’s memory keeper and strive to capture the honest beauty of their family in whatever season of life they are enjoying.
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.
