To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

When I started taking photos I thought it was just about a nice camera and pretty scenes, that THAT was what people wanted, what I wanted. I learned quickly that photographers do not just take photos, we are the curators of the human connection, we have the ability to freeze time and preserve history.

Photography is a passion, an art, a singular moment in an sea of infinity. When I see a couple, a family, I don't just see them, I see their legacy, a moment, a whisper, a look, and I know what story I want to tell with the photos. 

I would love to be the curator of your history.

Documenting Your stories, Capturing human connection.

Nothing is a challenge for her, despite how windy it was that day, she made the pictures look absolutely stunning! She is so patient and helpful too, I must have asked a million questions on what to wear, and she a pretty, simple, affordable dress that fit perfectly with the pictures! Thank you so much for the most beautiful pictures we have taken by far. I can not wait what our next session will hold with such a talented photographer.

Not only were my fiancé and I blown away with how gorgeous our pictures turned out, I was blown away by how well we were treated, how comfortable we felt during the session, Our photo shoot was definitely an adventure! And we loved it! I was already impressed with Shaleena, and then we finished the shoot and within and HOUR she already had a sneak peek! And by the end of the night I already had the pictures back! I will be seeing her again soon! Super sweet and talented!

Ready to book?

Absolutely! I have wedding, couples, newborn, maternity, family, and birth sessions that you can view if you ask. 

Do you have complete galleries I can view?

You are allowed to share you photos as much as you want! I only require that you do not edit the photos, no instagram filters, or editing of any kind. Cropping for profile photos is fine. I do own the image copyright, if a publication would like to use the photos, please direct them to me so that we can work up an arrangement, assuming you are ok with being published. 

What are the restrictions for sharing photos online or for publication? Do you own the copyright to the photos?

I will only do two weddings in a weekend. This is over Fri-Sun. I will never schedule two weddings in one day, the last thing I want to do is deny your day my full attention.

How many weddings do you do a weekend?

My packages usually come with digital images in an online gallery that you can buy prints/wall art from. I do not provide print releases. The best way to display your photos is with professional quality prints.
Weddings have a certain amount of coverage, wood USB or the online gallery, engagement sessions, and different prints. These of course vary with the packages you choose.
Each wedding will be documented using both film and digital mediums. 

What exactly is included in your packages?

Depends on the session. Newborns can take a little longer if the baby is fussy, or if you want a lot of props/poses. Birth depends on when your baby decides to arrive. The other sessions can depend on the locations, usually around one hour but I have had some go to two hours.

How long is each session?

I do! I model my digital photos after films like Porta800, Ektar100, TriX400, and Fuji400h. I like contrasty photos, I enjoy bright photos, but I also like to see all the details I can. And black and white photos, may or may not be my absolute favorite.

Do you shoot both digital and film?
