I'm a wife, a Christian, and a goldendoodle mama. I'm also a light-chasing, sunset lovin' photographer on the side. I work full-time during the week, and ride the waves at the lake on the weekends. I love sitting on a beach, reading thrilling books, or laughing till I cry.
Wanna be friends!? 

I'm sooo happy you're here!

you can call me shay

....and butterfinger cake, and Dr Pepper, and cupcakes. On weekends you can find me camping or boating with my husband and pup. During the week I wear many hats: I'm an office manager, Mary Kay consultant, and a pageant director outside of photography. I'm a listener, not a talker. I'm 100% an introvert on most days. There is nothing more important to me than my family and friends. and FYI, I'm SO not a morning person. 

I’m obsessed with traveling, sweets, color, and summer heat, I’d rather be at a beach somewhere than at my day job. I frequently sing even though I suck at it and I absolutely hate talking on the phone. My very best friend would tell you that I’m loyal as all get out (no joke, we've been best friends since we were twelve!). When I don’t have a camera in my hand, I'm finishing another task on my mile long list, or sleeping. Did I mention that I love to sleep?!

i love chocolate covered strawberries. 

I'm insanely patient and as kind as kind can be. Kids running around everywhere... it's FINE. I promise they are perfectly fine. Are you quiet? ME TOO. We'll end up fast friends though. Worried about what to wear? I'll do everything I can to help you. I'm laid back and easy to get along with. I'll do everything in my power to make you smile and feel at ease. 

I’m the kind of person who just wants to be your friend. My past clients (aka friends) tell me that I'm always calm, dependable, and flexible. I'm just as awkward and unphotogenic in front of the camera as you are. Let’s just say I got you because I understand you.

Let’s Cut to the Chase, lemme tell you why I'm different
