Oh Shelby is literally my favorite person to be around! She’s so genuine and makes every session so much fun! You’ll never meet someone who works her hardest to make you feel beautiful quite like Shelby does. Every single picture she takes captures real moments and she takes her time to make them the very best! Being a rep for Shelby has let me be around people I would have never been around and I absolutely love it. I can’t wait to spend more time with Shelby and other reps, because I can already tell this year is going to be a blast!
Don't even get me started on this family!! These genes? Are to die for!!!
Meg is so beautiful! Her and her hubby are raising the 3 cutest little boys I've EVER seen!
I love this family especially because they are so loyal to me, they have come to me for the last 3 years for all the their family shoots! I could go on and on about this family.. but instead i guess i'll keep it short and sweet!
This downtown shoot has me in awe! It's always so fun to run around town taking pictures. Who would've thought that places you drive around everyday could make for the most perfect retro photo shoot?
Mom & Dad
I’m Felecia & I got the opportunity to be a rep for Simply Shelby Photography this year! Shelby is an amazing person inside and out. She has such a bubbly personality and can put a smile on your face all the time. She’s also super funny and can turn awkward situations into the funniest moments. She’s so talented with her pictures and takes so much time to make sure they come out perfect! There’s no doubt you’ll love every moment she captures. Being a rep has taught me so much. It’s showed me new people and new friends, also how to pose and get the most out of the time spent getting my pictures taken! Shelby has taught me that pictures are memories and every one of them can hold a special meaning for you. I’ve loved every minute of being a rep for Shelby and she’s become a friend as well as a photographer!
Like a match made in heaven! These engagements started of a little differently than most. We started off the session taking these cuties couple photos they brought there puppies, cutest photo shoot ever, right? But there's a twist! Little did Kelsey know Mckay had something more than a photo shoot planned for this night! We went to another location where he had decorated and had a rose petal path on the ground, leading up to a bouquet of flowers. I SWEAR I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING CUTER! I'm so happy I was asked to capture this precious moment between the two love birds!
Now stay tuned for the wedding pictures cause this is only the beginning!
I love being Shelby’s rep! She makes me feel so dang comfortable while taking pictures and she knows exactly what to do to make me laugh! She truly is incredible! Her pictures are the BOMB! And she makes me look so good! I’m so stoked for this year and all the fun times with her and the other senior reps!
As we are nearing this colorful, breezy, sweater weather season. I thought i'd share everything I love about it!
Seriously though is there any better season than Fall? I mean it's cooling off from summer. Time to dig out all of those sweaters, and hoodies you packed away for the summer! Time for the leaves to change their colors. Is there anything better than driving through the canyon and seeing all of that beauty? No, there's not!!
Taking pictures this time of year is one of the reason's I love my job so much. Be sure to schedule a fall session with me. I promise it's not something you will want to miss!
Whether you’re starting a business, applying for a job, team pictures, or in need of some head shots; I do it all!
Trying to get out there? Maybe try getting your pictures done? For businesses this is smart for promoting. If you have an Instagram or a Facebook page, people like to see who they are potentially working with. I suggest some team pictures!
Professional pictures are always a good idea when making a portfolio. Maybe you’re applying for a new job, an organized portfolio will make you stand out to your possibly new employer! Putting a head shot in there will make you seem
Head shots don't have to be in front of a back drop either; sometimes it's just fun to be creative and just take some fun ones!
Taking these pictures was so much fun! I love this couple and their excitement for their upcoming adventures. You can see when they look at each other the love that they share, and the promise of a happy life. Let me help capture your new beginning. Contact simply Shelby today!
Senior reps are so much fun! It’s like having a Simply Shelby army, these are my go to’s! Every year I get to meet 20-30 new friends, these are my seniors. We do fun photo shoots! This summers rep shoot was the color wall! The boys unfortunately couldn't make it, they did their own vintage denim shoot, and it couldn’t have turned out any more perfect! (Well I mean.. it could have if they came to the color wall, but stuff happens)
Through out the year you’ll see more of these fun photo shoots. But for now here’s the pictures from the color wall!

Now a days if you have the latest smart phone you could take a picture, sure. But hiring a professional photographer is WORTH it! There are plenty of benefits towards it.
“A picture is worth a thousand words” right?
Pictures are the only thing we get to keep, to remember moments in our lives! Those special moments should be captured, and captured perfectly! Leave it up to the pro’s to do just that!!
A good photographer should know good lighting! They know how to work with natural and imitation lighting to enhance the quality of your photos, bringing characteristics and detail into your pictures.
Let’s talk Photoshop! Photoshop is almost KEY to editing pictures! You can remove flaws, enhance lighting, and change the color of the photo.
If they’ve been in the business for awhile they know of many locations! They can pick the perfect place for whatever “theme” you are planning. Along with giving you some awesome suggestions on what to wear!
Professionals know how to pose, they know how to position everyone so the picture looks good! It’s so so important to CENTER the photo!! And Staggering with bigger groups in a photo shoot is a MUST! I mean.. think about it. You’re putting your pictures in frames, and uncle mike’s only half way in the picture!? Bummer, am I right?
Why you should hire me!!
You should feel comfortable taking pictures, with me you get just that! Not only do you get AWESOME pictures, you get a friend! That’s my goal!
You should also remember when you hire a professional photographer keep in mind ITS OUR PASSION! With passion comes ideas, quality, enthusiasm, professionalism, and fun! We obviously love to do it, which makes our work mean something! To you and I, I hope.
With all of that being said.. Whether it be a wedding, family pictures, even just a photo shoot for fun! I hope you’ll hire a professional! You get what you pay for, I promise!
Also here is some of my favorite pictures I’ve taken.

You've seen these pictures being tossed around social media + you love them!! But, how could you not!? There is something so real and raw about in-home sessions. These sessions are simply + easy. The men in your life will love these! Because I never request any awkward poses, or rarely even ask him to look at the camera! So they automatically feel 100% more comfortable. And by doing that these images turn out perfect EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Below I am answering all the questions you might have so that you can book one of these sessions.
What are Lifestyle Sessions!? ::
Lifestyle sessions can be done with your new baby, your spouse, boyfriend, just your kids, anything! Whatever your home life consists of... that is what your lifestyle is! We can cuddle in bed or on the couch, soak up the sunlight next to the windows, do the dishes, anything!
What to Wear:::
I suggest wearing loose fitting clothes. Anything that you would wear on a Sunday morning. Thats what I want you in. No patterns. And limited layers. Something like a baggy oversized sweater, leggings and him in a basic T shirt and joggers. Don't over think it! This is supposed to be casual. Don't stress all the make-up, outfits, curling your hair. Come natural. I promise you will love the pictures that much more!
Usually these are taken in your own space. But sometimes you might not love your place. No matter where we take the pictures these tips will help you either determine a location or how to make your place fit for a perfect session.
-Take down all pictures on the walls. We want everything as simple and basic as they can get! So that the focus is on YOU! If you are using someone else's place make sure we don't have their family on the wall ;)
- Play with lighting. I love alllll the windows! So make sure to keep all the curtains + blinds open. If you look in some of the pictures you will notice christmas or globe lights. This adds a fun dimension to the pictures!
-I love white bedding. Something simple that draws the eye right to you!
-Some ideas for locations : a Cabin in the woods, go look on Airbnb.com for a fun place, your home, someones home that you love, renting a studio, etc. Anything can work!
Just remember the point of these sessions is to have fun + capture the realness of your relationship. Be relaxed + enjoy!
Here are some of the recent Lifestyle Session I have done. Get some inspiration + then message me to book your own! Mention this blog post + You'll receive a deal!
Jaelyn is the sweetest little mom that there ever was. I have been so blessed + lucky to photograph not only these sweet lifestyle newborns, but also their engagements + wedding day pictures. And I can't wait to watch their sweet little family grow.
Milo was so good for our session. He just sat and loved the entire time I was there. I loved getting to see the way that Tanner + Jae interacting with each other as well as how much they love baby Milo.
I love the way that lifestyle sessions let you get a glimpse into everyday life.
A few days ago, I had an awesome opportunity that let me work with DressCollective. The owner contacted me, and asked if i'd be willing to photograph a session with these darling dresses, and how could I say no. We went down to one of my favorite locations in downtown Salt Lake, and it'd be an understatement to say we had a blast. Seeing these beautiful girls laugh, and dance around in these MAGICAL dresses; was a dream. I hope you enjoy these pictures just as much as I enjoyed photographing them.
Also, if you have a business, or know of someone who needs their products professionally photographed, send them my way. I'd love to help. XO
This darling couple was my very first wedding I ever photographed. I have always felt so lucky to have them as clients and the fact that they have stuck with me all through the years means so much to me! I have been so blessed with all of my clients that trust me and keep coming back. I value the friendships I have made in this business so much.
Back in the Summer I had the opportunity to shoot an adoption film for them to use for their adoption profile. Soon after that they were placed with a beautiful birth mother and all their dreams were coming true. Just a few months later Miss Haven was born. It was a beautiful moment for this darling couple to welcome this fresh from heaven babe. I am so happy for them and their beautiful new addition.
Fresh 48 sessions are a great option to capture those fresh newborn details and moments at the hospital! If you would like to book your own Fresh 48 get ahold of me and we will set you up a session just for you!
There is nothing like capturing the newness of a tiny babe. When Libbee asked if I would capture sweet Coco's newborns at their home I was so excited. I love lifestyle sessions! We also did some maternity pictures of her here and they turned out so dreamy! So I loved sticking with the lifestyle theme by doing Coco's newborns at home as well.
I love that by doing a lifestyle session you get to truly capture your relationship between you + your sweet new babe. I love all the little details that are focused on the baby. The pictures we get are so perfect + you really get to feel the love these parents have for their new addition.
If you are interested in booking a lifestyle session send me over a quick message! Even if you don't feel like your own house is picture perfect, there are LOADS of darling studios in Logan, Ogden, and Bountiful that are all picture perfect if this is the type of pictures you want.
This darling family of 3 came to me for their family pictures + I am in love with their session! We caught the most perfect golden hour + it made for the most gorgeous family pictures! Romeo has a smile that lights up the entire room and was so good the entire time! With daylight savings here we run out of daylight a lot earlier than in the Summer months. But, I am so glad that the sun cooperated for us and gave us these amazing pictures!
I am obsessed with all of the families that I have gotten to work with this year! I can't believe we are at the close of the year. I have had the chance to work with so many amazing families. If you are wanting to get in before the end of the year let me know and we will get you scheduled!
