For me, inspiration comes from seeing a photograph that makes me well up inside. When I can physically feel the love deep in my core. When I feel connected to the people and places in them even though I've never met them. Photography is everything; when the present fades to memories. Photography captures and restores the memory of incredible lives lived. Art in any form is Humanity. Plain and simple. Art saves lives. It is what is good, kind, and generous in all of us. Photographing people who share their stories reveals this to me time and time again. You all teach me everything I need to know about this life, and I am lucky to witness it.
I'm Shelby. My friends call me Shelbs. Here's a bit about me: As you may have gathered, I am a wedding and portrait photographer thats been documenting stories for 3 years. I love many things, but of those my favorites are waking up to puppy snuggles from my golden retriever, Sonoma. Coffee and wine are my go-to drinks of choice. I'm constantly outside in nature finding new paths to gorgeous places. My relationships are everything to me. I'm also a personal trainer thats spends the other half of my time in the gym helping people be the best versions of themself. Connection is everything. I have one motto: put others first and bask in delusional optimism. I'm not perfect, sometimes I falter from this, but it is my everlasting goal in life. To show up for this Earth, the people on it and everything it has to offer.
