Introduction: I been in this industry for 13 years beginning with Film and slowly eased into Digital. My first models were my nieces who loved to pose for me. Capturing my family at special events was one of my favorite things. My father was the one that really got me started as child as he was always taking pictures of videos (when you used those huge camcorders) at every family event. Then slowly handed the reigns over to me when he passed. I started doing my family's Christmas pictures. I went to college to learn the fine art of photography. I was taught in the class on a Vivitar 35mm and instantly fell in love. Because of this I do a lot of my family portraits for the holidays which I find I enjoy. I learned on point and shoots and bridge cameras till I was comfortable with the manual settings. Then I took a step up borrowed a Canon DSLR from a friend. I instantly fell in love with the DSLR because of the manual focus and raw. When someone saw the portraits I did of my family on my sister's wall in frames I got my first paying customer. I scraped up the money and got my first Canon Rebel, lights and more. I opened my business and never looked back . I love taking pictures of High School Seniors, families, children and the families in their Holiday portraits. Its like capturing a bit of time to cherish.

Shawna has been amazing. Her work is outstanding and she is my Christmas go-to person for gorgeous pictures of my 2 year old son who is afraid of Santa. Thank you Shawna for your pure dedication to a beautiful experience.

Shawna Lee was able to create an amazing keepsake for my family during covid times when photos with Santa were nonexistent. Many did not even realize the photos she created were not done in real life. Love them and so happy to have these as our son's first Christmas photos.
