FINE ART Portrait and Wedding photography
est 2013

Authentic storytelling is the fuel behind my work - capturing your beautiful, unique life just as it is. 

I'm based  at the mouth of the majestic Columbia river and do most of my sessions along the coastal /inland regions of southwest, Washington  and northern Oregon. I also serve Central/Eastern, Washington clients when I travel there often throughout the year.

I'm so, so glad you're here. There is nothing more important in this life than the time we share together. We were made to love and be loved. It is a gift God has graciously given us to value and cherish. We do not know the number of days we have here - so every day, those small moments, are so important to document.

My desire is to be your source of remembrance through tangible photographs. Photography is not only my art form, I believe it is my calling God has given me. I thrive on knowing I am giving a lasting memory for you and your family to hold onto. A session with me is all about the reminders of love, laughter, and lives shared. 

Welcome friend!

"Not only is Shellie an incredible photographer, she is truly an amazing person. From the first email interaction, to the shoot, to the delivery of your portfolio, Shellie goes above and beyond to make sure you have all of the information you need and that the shoot is comfortable and natural. She captures all of the “little moments” and you can feel the love portrayed in her photos.
Her work is unique and her talent is unbelievable. 
I’m thankful for the everlasting memories she’s given my family!"

"My husband and I cannot recommend Shellie enough! She is such a professional in every sense of the word but more importantly is also a warm and kind person. She is truly an artist when it comes to capturing pure love and emotion and we felt so lucky to have gotten to work with her for our wedding."

"Not only does Shellie take stunning photos, she also captures all the precious moments and unique personalities of each individual she photographs. Her laid back style makes it a unique experience. Even my husband and kids, who would typically dread family photo day, had a blast during our session with Shellie. She’s the best!"
