Hi, I'm Shaela Elise

Photography helps us capture those forever moments- so we never forget.

             abies are only tiny once. Blink and it's gone."  Everyone tells you this when you're pregnant, but these nine months seem like forever!

​It really does fly by so very fast. That is why we have photos. We are all trying to preserve the memories that tell the story of our lives at every milestone. You know how it is, one image can bring you right back to a moment in time, sparking a cascade of memories, bringing joy for hours.

I first dabbled in photography to capture the story of my own family. Our stacks of photos paint the picture of our lives together. Not everything is fit for display, but we didn’t care. These images capture us as we are, in that moment in time. It is our story, and these images that help us remember what is truly important – each other. When my children were little, I wanted to savor every moment too. And then life got busy. I got busy. In the busy, you forget – I forget – but these pictures help me remember and keep our story alive.

That drive to document the story of our lives has pulled me away from my job as a buyer for a local company, leading me to professional photography. Being a bit of a perfectionist, I don’t like to let people down. Learning and developing my skill as a photographer is not something I take lightly. When I’m not in my studio, you can find me searching for new locations for the best light. Whether that is walking through alleys, studying doorways, or exploring the woods, I want to find the best places to tell your story.


From maternity and newborns to senior pictures and weddings, even 50th anniversaries, these are the sacred milestones in your family history and it is my passion to help you capture these special moments. 

I've been asked whether I prefer all-natural photos or studio photography with props, and my answer is this: it's not my story – it's yours. I am here to listen to you and bring your vision to life. If you know what you want – great! If you don't, we can figure that out together.


I don't take capturing your story lightly. I want you to love the images we create together. I can’t wait to work with you!
