Meet Shelly

Hi! I’m Shelly. I’m am both a natural light and artificial light photographer based in Brunswick, Georgia, the heart of the golden isles and St. Simons and Jekyll Island. I have love photography since I was a teenager growing up in Wine Country California, whereas a competitive gymnast I would photograph the beautiful lines of the dancers and gymnasts I was around.

While attending college in in Kentucky, I became a competitive gymnastics coach and judge, spending over 10 years falling in love with teaching young gymnasts to achieve their goals through hard work and dedication to their most passionate pursuit.

I have a mild obsession with sewing and quilting, that started when I was a child, and have spent a decade after having children teaching sewing and quilting online, as well as photographing these beautiful textile art forms . My work has been published in national magazines such as Sommerset Home and Love Patchwork and Quilting.

The sparking smiles of children have always brought me joy, and after my daughters were born in became clear to me that photographing, newborns and children is where my passion is. I’ve spent many years capturing these joyful moments and am ready to take part you in capturing yours.

I would describe my work as simple, natural, and timeless. II wish to create images that you will treasure for many years to come. I would be honored to capture part of your families story.


Capturing these fleeting moments for you to remember for the rest of your life.
