About Me

Hello! My name is Shelli. So..a little about me..

My husband and I are parents to 5 wonderful grown children and 2 absolutely fantastic grandchildren. My kids and grand babies are my life. My kids may be grown and moved away, but I still communicate with them everyday. After my husband retired from the military, we made our home in the Florida panhandle. We love it here and have called it home since 2007.

My love for photography started with my children. They grew up way to fast! I'm a completely self taught photographer except for a class back in high school many moons ago. I've taken newborn photography workshops and newborn safety classes as well. In 2014, I opened my studio in Fort Walton Beach and I love my little space. I have lots of props, backgrounds and wraps for newborn photography. And a real wood wall that is a client favorite. I specialize in maternity, newborn and family beach photography...they are my favorite sessions!

Thank you for stumbling into my little world.

Much Love, Shelli
