    Hi everyone!  I live in Greenfield, Minnesota with my husband Brian and our 4 children ages 6-21.

    I have loved photography pretty much my whole life. My father was into photography so I grew up with a darkroom in the basement and he taught me to develop film and prints.  I have so many happy memories spending time with my Dad doing something we both enjoyed so much.

    After many years working in Minneapolis as a Paralegal and homeschooling my older children, I launched a part time portrait photography business about 5 years ago.

    I love photographing High School Seniors and families, and am passionate about making portraits and capturing images that show women and girls in particular how beautiful they are.

    My Senior Sessions are high energy, fast moving and fun!  A session I did a few weeks ago ranks right up at the top of my list.  I had photographed Rachel a few years ago so I knew she was easygoing and would be fun to work with for her Senior Photos.  We live in a rural area and her session reflected that with a beautiful "country" look.  She booked my longest session so we had time to go to several different locations.  We started in a wheat field, went on to a beautiful local property with a pretty driveway and fencing, and ended at her home on the river for some shots by the water.  She came prepared with awesome clothes, beautiful hair and makeup, and a friend who turned out to be a top notch assistant!

    I dropped a speed light in the river during her session but we carried on and got great images anyway.  Note - After I got home I tried putting it in a container with rice.  I hear all the time about how people save their phones that have gotten wet with this trick.  It did not work.  And then after 5 days - SUCCESS!  It turned on and is good as new.

    Rachel's photos are beautiful, and I'm thrilled to share some of them with you here.

    Let me start off by introducing myself. My name is Shelby Schelling and I am from Winchester, Ohio. I have been shooting photography for 3 years in August. My photography business has just been on the side while I am working other jobs but, I would love to grow my business so big that I could do it all the time. I am married to a dairy farmer so that can be fun. The farm life is the life for me! With that being said, I do live in the country and I love when I get to shoot country weddings or engagement photo shoots. Here is a picture of myself and my husband so you can put my name with a face.

    I said that country themed shoots were my favorite. I recently did a country themed engagement shoot this past weekend. The bride and groom (Ashley and Travis) are getting married in September. I went to high school with the bride and attended the same college with her, she is also my Kappa Delta sister. Needless to say, I have known the bride for a little while. I loved this shoot because I got to work with things I know. Ashley also let me get creative; her and the groom were not afraid to try what I asked. It also comes in handy when the bride and groom have an idea of what they want. The only thing that wasn't pleasant about this shoot, is that it was around 93 degrees and humid!!! I would say that I am still working on my photography style. I would love to get more into the natural light photography, I love the look of the photos; they are crisp and clear. Overall, I am a very relaxed photographer. I am not afraid to try difficult poses;  I like to use props if I can. I always want to get the subject(s) ideas of what they want before we begin. I also like to tell clients that there really is not a limit on time or how many photos I take. I love to shoot and take multiple shots to make sure I get the right one. I love to shoot until I run out of ideas. Thanks for reading my post and enjoy some photos from my latest shoot that I mentioned.
