What are people saying?


"It's the moments you don't even know you are going to miss one day. These are the beautiful moments Shelby is able to capture. Each picture evokes emotions and it stirs a memory. We are so grateful that we have found Shelby to document our journey in life!"

"Our session felt more like hanging out with a friend at the park than posing for family photos, the result was beautiful candid moments that captured who our family is. I have the pictures framed in almost every room in our house and get comments about how much people love them almost every time someone comes over. Thanks for putting your whole heart into what you do!"

"We live in Florida and Shelby photographs our family every time we visit the Quad Cities. We love her work so much that we invited her to come to Florida! She's truly and incredibly talented. She captures so much emotion in her pictures and every picture has a story. We are so glad we met her a few years ago - she's such a joy to work with."

"My experience with Shelby has been the best I have ever had. After I shared our heart break of 4 miscarriages before we had Lucy, she decided to come back and make something extra special for us after our newborn shoot with her. To this day, it brings tears to my eyes and it means so much to me. After our son Jack was born we had her come for newborn photos again and I was so worried about how Lucy would be during them. She was absolutely amazing with her and once again made my heart melt with what she captured. She is very gentle, compassionate and caring."

"I mean...... she brought me Starbucks as a mommy pick me up for our session! Who does that? Only the sweetest person ever. I treasure her as a photographer because she loves what she does and it shows how great she is with children through all her photos."

Why would you need my help?


"As a busy mom of three, the last thing I had time to do was decorate my house! Even though I love decorating, I could never piece everything together, let alone find time to actually shop! Shelby was able to decorate my home within my budget and to my exact taste! It was such a fun process!!! I got to do all of the fun stuff without the stress. Shelby came over and set everything up (she even entertained my kids...double score) and took care of all the details. Now, it finally feels like home.
I can enjoy my space with my family and friends."

"We have gotten so many compliments on our house since Shelby decorated. I think people enjoy the warmth she created. Thank you Shelby, for helping to make our house a home!"

"I knew what I wanted, I just didn't have the time to put it together. She asked all the questions, came to my home for a consultation and back again to decorate everything and it turned out greater than I could have imagined. She's so creative and has such a great vision."

"I mean... we were just blown away. We could have never come up with this vision on our own. We absolutely love the cozy space she has made for us and we can't wait to show it off to more people!"


Here is a peek into our home.
You can look on the blog for a home tour soon, we are always redoing things around here!


Make a statement!


"My pictures from our photo sessions that she has also taken, proudly hang in the gallery wall she created and is such a great reminder of what is important in life.
I see that wall every morning and every night and the kids love to look at it too." 

"I love that we're still getting compliments on our wall!"

"I could have never done that. Her vision and creativity is beyond and she is just such a lovely person to be around. I would do it again in a heartbeat!"
