My name is Shawna. Born and raised in Florida, I moved to Michigan 13 years ago. I have two kiddos (Blake, 9 and Brooklyn, 6. Some of my favorite things are coffee, food, traveling, and all forms of art. 
I am a professional photographer based in Gladwin County, MI. With over 7 years of experience capturing families, commercial products. and real estate.
I strive to provide an incredible experience, sophisticated styling, and a breathtaking finished product that you will cherish for years to come. The time spent taking the portraits is only a small portion of the experience. Planning, preparing clients, and perfecting your images through customized editing turns your photos into works of art.
My style could be considered modern with a clean, bold, and crisp editing preference. I love to focus on the small details and strive to capture natural interactions, candid moments, and emotion throughout all of our sessions. The goal is that you come to your session stress-free and ready to make memories that you and your family will cherish forever.
