"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." -Eleanor Roosevelt

Meet Resa & Grant: Both new professionals to the health field. Resa just graduated from Washington State University (GO COUGS!) with her Masters in Health Policy and Administration and that same week Grant received his certification as an EMT! New career opportunities are taking this couple to Tacoma, WA, and I couldn't be more excited for them!

I love being a photographer for many reasons, perhaps the biggest being the relationships I get to create with clients along the way. For me, it's about more than capturing joyous moments; it's creating a book without words, one that pulls at your heartstrings and makes you laugh and even cry happy tears.

  1. You are so talented, Shelby! I know that I have said this many times but I can't stop looking at the images you took of Grant and I. Every single image makes me smile :))) Anyone who needs engagement, baby pictures, wedding, etc. I highly recommend Shelby. You can tell that she took the time to make every single image flawless before you received them. She's reliable and professional. You will feel like you knew her for ages xoxo

    Also, thank you so much for your sweet and encouraging words. It made me teary eyed. Ohhh and let me not forget your wonderful surprise video :))))
