I received an e-mail a couple weeks ago from Shelby’s mother, Renee explaining to me that she had already had Shelby’s

senior photos taken but upon getting her images back was very unhappy with the final product.

She told me she saw my work online and wanted me to do an entire new senior shoot for her daughter.

I can’t tell you how good it made me feel 🙂


I met Shelby in downtown Royal Oak and after getting over a couple little nerves, the shoot went phenomenal!

Probably some of my favorite images of the year and Shelby and I had a blast!

Shelby also brought along her beautiful dog, Maya to be in a few photographs. Although Shelby did warn me that Maya does not like to get her picture taken, she did great and was still so sweet and adorable and I fell in love with the images of the two of them together.

As we burned out the daylight shooting all day, I decided to do a few fun night shots and they turned out to be some of my very favorite images from the shoot.

Shelby, you were awesome to photograph and I had such a good time. Thanks for your fun, adventurous spirit!
