Shelby Suzanne Photography | My Style


My Style

I look at photography as art in its most prized and cherished form.  There are few things as fulfilling as capturing real people demonstrating real emotion and genuine love for one another.  Aspiring to orchestrate the extraordinary from the ordinary while mixing in creativity are other elements that compel me to make each session unique and memorable.


My preference is to use as much natural light as possible depending on the time of day and venue as I like to capitalize on simplicity and believe that natural light is more flattering.  For each session, I strive to create a very fun, relaxed, and stress-free environment for all involved.  Music has always played a major role in my life and is a great way to help put people at ease.  I enjoy incorporating this element into my sessions by giving the client the option of selecting music from a diverse collection to serve as the background soundtrack during the session which also adds a fun dimension to the photoshoot.

For weddings, engagement sessions, maternity, senior portraits, head shots, modeling portfolios, and social media portraits, my aim is to combine each individual’s interests and preferences, magnify their best assets, and capture their unique attributes while maintaining professionalism.  I enjoy working collaboratively with my clients and offer direction according to client input.  Especially when it comes to weddings, capturing the fine details and incorporating posed positions along with a variety of candid shots all contribute to a well rounded photographic collection of your special day.  

My photos have a feeling of spontaneity especially when it comes to children who naturally like to explore and take in the world around them.  Because of this, I work around them to make the top priority capturing their unique personalities and playful spirits in action. 

I shoot solely on location.  I have a variety of photo location ideas but also am open to shooting any special place that you have in mind.  If you prefer the comforts of your own home, please ensure there is adequate available light.
