About

image_6483441-8.JPG
I am a professional photgrapher specializing in Weddings, Music, Events, Headshots and Fine Art and I'm based in Daphne, AL. Growing up in Memphis, I used to play around with my grandmother's Kodak instamatic camera all the time. I got my first "real" camera when I was 14 and I've been shooting ever since. I love to photograph people, places and things, whatever moves me. I was honored to be named South Walton Photographer of the year for 2015 and 2019 as well as 30A.com “Hottest Local Photographer” for 2015 and 2017 for the 30A area of the Florida Panhandle. I still work extensively in that area as well. I've served as the in house photographer for "Music City Roots," Bluegrass Underground and The 30A Songwriters Festival. My music, wedding, editorial and travel photography has appeared in many local, national and international publications including USA Today, The New York Times, Southern Living, Garden and Gun, VIE, Fretboard Journal, Bluegrass Unlimited, Emerald Coast Magazine and American Songwriter. I've also served as tour photographer for various musical acts, I also shoot weddings, portraits events and headshots. My subjects often change but my style remains the same. I love to get close to what I am shooting and really try to give the viewer an intimate feel and a front row seat. I am always striving to capture emotion. No matter my subject, I try to convey an intimate vibrancy. I am happiest when I achieve that goal and am able to lift my shyness and let the world see what I feel. Thank you for taking the time to enjoy my work. Feel free to call me to discuss you specific photographic needs!

I'm Shelly!
I'm a bit of a free spirit when it comes to photography and I'm very interested in the people and places around me! I also want you to feel comfortable when we work together, so before and during your shoot or session I will ask questions and get to know you so that you can feel totally at ease during the session.
While I love natural looks over traditional poses, sometimes a bit of posing is necessary and I will be there to assist and direct you through posing and expression in order to put you at ease and get you looking your best in front of the camera so we can incorporate both posed and natural moments in the shoot. From a fun loving or a fashion forward shoot to a more reserved traditional style, I am here for you every step of the way.
I love trying creative things and am able to adapt to any given situation and to bring the beauty out that is already there. This is your shoot, let's have fun with it and make memories!
