Artistically crafted portraits for the darling

My entire business is built around memories and feelings. The memories and feelings are yours, and mine... through the process we become like friends, and every part of your session or event, even the film medium I use, is tailored to how to best suit your needs & feelings; your life's art.
My ideal client is someone that has an immediate connection with me, and so far, I have been lucky enough to work with and create bonds with such like minded people. I want to walk out of our experience, with not just a client for life, but a friend for life. If you think that we are kindred spirits, feel free to contact me! We can get some coffee... or tequila shots, your choice.

The Tiscareno Family

Our family shoot photos are absolutely wonderful and we couldn't be happier with the way they turned out. Shaleena was referred by a friend. She has a way of capturing naturally beautiful moments and instead of forcing cheesy poses. She is also unbelievably easy to work with very friendly and kind. My 8 year old loved her jokes and she capture beautiful natural giggles of him I will treasure them forever. Each picture perfectly captured the emition! Shaleena is super responsive over text or email and provided our photos way ahead scheduled. End-to-end we couldn't have had a better experience nor have we ever seen a better set of family photos.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Shaleena!!

The Williams

I wandered through the Phoenix bridal show, terrified and overwhelmed. I had been chased by eye cream wielding European men to my absolute wits end.
And then, I found Shaleena. Her booth was understated, purposeful and quiet. She was exactly what I was looking for. A few minutes of talking, and I knew we were kindred spirits.
Fast forward to my wedding day and she was there with bells on. Beautifully dressed, professional and joyful to be around. 

The Williams

She’s exactly what you want while you’re dropping you’re brand new makeup palette and breaking your nose ring. She’s also what you want when you’re hugging your maid of honor you haven’t seen in person in 8 years and seeing your groom for the first time. She has an ingrained sense of what’s important and to say my wedding photos are beautiful is almost an injustice. Shaleena, thank you from the bottom of my heart for capturing all the good that existed on that day.

The O'Connors

We met Shaleena at the Bridal show of January 2018. We went hoping to cross one item off of our ever-growing list. It was an overwhelming event, to say the least. We stopped, and I briefly chatted with her, it was reassuring that she wasn't enjoying all the chaos either. I won a free engagement session, so it felt meant-to-be. Vince and I are not exactly camera friendly, but Shaleena made us feel a lot more comfortable as time went on. We literally signed our contract with her in the parking lot that same day! Our engagement photos turned out just as beautiful as I was picturing; she also got them all to us that night!!

The O'Connors

As the wedding got closer, I received regular emails from Shaleena checking in and hoping we hadn't decided to call it off yet. lol We couldn't have made a better choice in choosing her! She was fun, hard-working and completely dedicated from day one to wedding day. She was on the move the entire wedding! She knew exactly how to make us all laugh and turn those moments in beautiful photos. We couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out. And we will forever be grateful to her for going above and beyond for us. p.s She's also a great time, try tempting her with tequila
