"You will never have this day with your children again. Today is a gift. Breathe and notice. Study their little faces and feet. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today mama, it will be gone before you know it."

"You will never have this day with your children again. Today is a gift. Breathe and notice. Study their little faces and feet. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today mama, it will be gone before you know it."

When thinking about your portraits 50 years from now do you want to remember how you were posed or how you felt?

My approach to family photography is simple, keep it light, fun and unapologetically real. I spend a lot less time posing you and a lot more time prompting you into genuine and authentic interactions. Your kids are going to play, run and have a blast while you take the time to enjoy your session for once. 

All family photography sessions with young kids are 100% child led. Instead of forcing your kids into poses, I work harder to create an interactive and engaging session where they want to see what happens next. Trust me, I got this!

THE DETAILS

I started documenting my own family as a "momtogprapher." Now as a professional photographer, I continue to document your families journey with an "in the moment" feel.

Shelby was absolutely incredible to work with. She has worked with us on many different family sessions and she takes the most heartwarming pictures. She consistently makes us feel comfortable and makes sure that we don’t miss meaningful opportunities to just be together. Her photos looks so authentically happy because she made the session that way. We got a variety of photos despite having a toddler and a dog who didn’t always want to cooperate. Also, as a mother, I feel as if I am constantly attending to everyone’s needs (fixing someone’s hair, etc). Shelby made sure that I never had to do it, and also took care of ME. It’s very apparent that Shelby loves what she does and that she will put in way more effort than you would ever expect. You will not be disappointed!

asked questions

What is required to book a session?

All sessions require a 50% non-refundable retainer fee. This locks in your date and time as well as a signed contract. Final payments are due 24 hours before your session.

What is your turnaround?

January - August has a turnaround time of approximately 2 weeks. 
September - December you can expect 3-4 week turnaround

What do we do if the weather is bad?

If the weather is exceptionally cloudy, rainy or windy, we will reschedule at MY discretion. Please trust me when I suggest rescheduling. As a natural light photographer, light matters so much in your final images. If there is 85%+ cloud coverage or 12+mph winds, you can expect a reschedule which will be discussed thoroughly with you.

What is the best time to shoot?

Golden Hour; which is 1-2 hours before sunset or about an hour before sunrise. I prefer to shoot during golden hour to get the golden glow and warmth in my images. If you choose a time outside of golden hour, your images may not be as dreamy, but nonetheless still beautiful. 

How do i make payments, sign contracts, etc.

I will send you a final proposal once we have settled on your location and time. This file will include your invoice, contract and questionnaire. The software I use allows you to view all files seamlessly as well as make a payment towards your retainer and set up auto-pay for your final payment if you wish. It saves all client files so you can easily look back on past sessions with ease. 

How does the proofing gallery work?

Once I have edited your images, I will send you a gallery full of all the keeper images from your session. From here you will make your selections based on your collection, which will then be sent to you for download.. If you purchased our storyteller package you will skip the step and receive all images to download and keep. You have the option to purchase additional images at $20/each or the full gallery for $150.

Can you Photoshop me?

I offer minor retouching to my images, like smoothing skin, flyaways, retouching blemishes, etc. but will not do any body modifications of any kind. Special requests may be subject to an additional charge based on request. Additional fees will be a case by case basis.
