Photography is a way of feeling

What you have caught on film is captured forever

Of touching

It remembers little things

Of loving.

Long after you have forgotten everything.

– Aaron Siskind

About Shelly

Hi and welcome! I’m Michelle (but most people call me Shelly), and I’m the girl behind the camera. Owen Sound is where I call home along with my husband, two boys, a dog (Sadie) and a cat (Ozzie).

Most of my days are spent caught up in the whirlwind of motherhood; morning routines, sticky fingers, snuggles, tears, and hoping the loads of laundry will magically fold itself.

Photography for me is capturing the beauty in the chaos. I am inspired by you, your story, and the way you interact. My goal is to be able to capture the way a moment feels; the raw, the real, the joy and love so that you can remember this time forever. This is what makes my heart sing as a photographer.
