The Shelby McKimmie Experience

The experience you have during our time together means a lot to me. Not only do I want you to cherish your finished gallery but I want you to cherish the time your family and myself spend together. After-all, you are now a part of my family!

As a part of my family you will smile, laugh, and feel relaxed and at ease throughout your photography journey with me. Your photographer should be someone you can relate with and trust to capture you and your loved ones in a beautiful way. I take pride in making sure you receive not only my authentic artistry but also an authentic posing experience. Through portrait posing and playful posing I will document the serious, the funny, and the in-between which happens to be my absolute favorite moments of all!

At the end of your photography journey you will have portraits that will be beautiful and stand the test of time.

How would you describe your style?

I like to think of my portraits as timeless and classic. I strive on doing a combination of portrait and playful posing. This allows for you to get the favorite everyone posed looking at the camera photo and candid images.

What do I wear?

Clothing can make one of the biggest differences in your portraits. Chances are, if you like my photos it's because you are drawn to light. I ask for my clients to wear pastels, neutrals, and lighter tones. I do have a session guide that I send upon booking that goes over options, and includes helpful links for shopping. I'm also just a call or text away when you are choosing your clothing and am happy to help!

Can I use my digital images for prints?

Absolutely! At the end of our session I will let you know of a lab that I HIGHLY recommend. But you are more than welcome to print your photos anywhere.

Do you offer payment plans?

I do! You need to pay the $150 retainer but your remaining balance can easily be worked into a payment plan. I know photography is an investment so I am happy to help you do this!

Have additional questions?

This guide has been meant to show you show you my portrait collections, answer frequently asked questions, and to help give you insight to the experience you will receive when working with me.

As always, I am here to answer any questions for you at any time. Just send me an email and I'll get back to you ASAP.
