about shelby


Celebrating legacies by creating reminders of the best things in life: I'm a believer, wife to my college sweetheart, mama to our sweet boy and furry ones, wedding photographer and friend.

My happiest days are spent feeling the wind through my hair and loves hand in mine. I'm an admirer of that first sip of coffee, putting pen to paper and possibilities; snail mail has my heart. When I'm not behind a lens, you'll find me cozied up to my favorite teammate, our pip + a fur baby at home along our winding hill or out exploring the world together.

A proud Washington State University alum, (Go Cougs!) I pursued a career in news broadcasting before building a photography business & have never looked back. Each time I pick up a camera I'm reminded of all the love that surrounds us. Sharing that feeling with others is what I do,

it's what I love.

Full of light, it's in the little things that build a legacy, like coming alongside that someone in a favorite gesture of love and holding onto the sentiment of it all.


Grammy passed down an expression sharing how much you love another through hand movements. And let me tell you, when my husband shows me "how much" through one long squeeze, I feel it big!

Always up for a good adventure, you revere in time spent simply at their side. It’s in that embrace you feel completely at home. You see it in the way they inspire the best version of you through their own acts of love.

It's in that big expression of your own! Because all those reminders add up to something great.
