Hi! My name is Shawna. I'm a wife, mom of two (Blake, 5 and Brooklyn, 2), and photographer. I'm based in Gladwin but serve all of Mid-Michigan. I love coffee, shopping, plants, and spending time with my family camping or hanging out outside. I was born and raised in Florida and moved to Michigan about 10 years ago. I met my husband here (now I'm stuck, haha). I picked up my first camera almost 4 years ago with the intentions of documenting my family. Along the way, a friend asked me to take photos for their family and my hobby grew into a business that I've come to love. I mean, what better job than to snuggle on babies and hang out with awesome families all the time?!
I enjoy using natural light and shooting outdoors when I can and also have a studio located in Gladwin for newborn and milestone sessions.
I strive to capture natural interactions, candid moments, and raw emotion. When you show up to your session with me, don't be afraid to dance, twirl, laugh, and play. My goal is for your session to be fun and memorable. I will guide you throughout the session so that I can capture the love that is already between you.
I'd love to get to know you and the ones you love and tell your story through photos. Feel free to browse my portfolio and check my facebook page too.
