Hey, I'm Shelby!

I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Maryland. Once I had my son; his father and I bought a house across the bridge in King George, Virginia. Speaking of my son, his name is Jackson and he keeps me on my toes just like a seven-year-old should! Along with Jackson, we have three fur babies, Benny (our Ragdoll), Rocco (our Bloodhound), and Max (our Yellow Lab).

Beyond my role as a photographer, I devoted a decade to public health, a journey that enriched my understanding of well-being and safety. My commitment to community well-being extended to proudly serving on the Fetal Infant Mortality Review Board for Charles County.

This wealth of experience is not just a part of my resume; it's an integral part of who I am. Beyond capturing beautiful images, I'm dedicated to creating an environment where your family feels secure, comfortable, and free to be your authentic selves.

I hope as your photographer I capture the love within your growing family. I want to make memories for you to share with the next generation and so on!

"My family has worked with Shelby on several occasions. On each occasion, Shelby has captured beautiful moments that I will cherish for many years to come. She is extremely easy to work with, professional, and patient... especially when it comes to working with you kids!
