About Me

I'm Shellie and I'm a former child/family photographer branching out into new areas. I'm interested in promo, fashion and commercial photography--and have several personal projects going on, the biggest of which is to photograph 50 new faces by the end of 2009!

I am very laid-back, relaxed and down-to-earth. I'm a jeans+t-shirt+sandals type of girl. I love being behind the camera and enjoy working with those who are destined to be in front of it!

I love to work with creative and fun people who can relax and have fun in front of the camera. I have a 24x24 dedicated home studio. I usually work with my husband, Tom, who helps me whenever time allows. He's become an amazing photographer in a short amount of time and his works rounds mine out nicely!

I am working mostly TF* for the remainder of the year (except for some child/family mini-sessions that I do on occasiona). I am doing this so I can dedicate most of my time to my {Fifty Faces} project. I looking for additional talent; I want diversity/variety in people and am open to actors, models, musicians, etc. either experienced or aspiring.

I also am giving *you* complete control of your look(s) - wardrobe, hair, make-up, props, etc. Each session includes 3 set-ups and 3 outfit changes (wear one, bring three more). You will get a download with 12fully retouched files in both full-res. and web versions, with permission to display or print them to promote your career.

I artistically edit and retouch each file I give you. In return, I need a model and liability release and appreciate a credit whenever appropriate. Referrals are great too! :D

I can recommend a TF* MUA (there's a small materials fee if you book her). I am shooting this primarily in my studio in San Tan Valley (near Queen Creek) but I also enjoy working in outdoor, urban or park locations.

PLEASE NOTE: I do not shoot full-frontal nudity, erotic, X or XXX.

Some ideas of who I'm looking for:

individual men or women (acting/modeling)
couples (will shoot individually plus shoot some "engagement" style images)
buddies/friends (individual and buddy shots)
musicians (individuals or groups)
