Hi, I’m Shelly
A Photographer in Grey & Bruce Counties
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.
“Shelly did an amazing job with our newborn session! She was so calm and collected during the whole shoot. Shelly also did a great job helping our toddler feel special and a part of things. We found Shelly to be so helpful at giving directions well at the same time honouring our wishes for shots we had in mind. Helpful, professional, encouraging and very talented we would totally recommend Shelly Lynn Photography!!”
“This past fall we hired Michelle as our birth photographer. For weeks before our due date she would follow up with us to check on baby’s progress, right up until our special boy arrived! Michelle was understanding and professional, she made sure to stay out of the nurses way, and captured beautiful photos that we will treasure for a lifetime! We couldn’t be more happy, 5 stars is an understatement!”
"We had such a wonderful experience working with Shelly!! As she knows what life is like with a newborn, she was sure to be very flexible and easy going during the session. We really enjoyed spending a relaxing afternoon with her, as she captured our life as a new family of three! Afterwards, Shelly was great to provide us with sneak peeks and let us know the progress of the photos. We were so happy with the quality, quantity, and all around time and care that Shelly put into our photos!!”
“Amazing talent and easy to work with. I am in love with all of our session photos!”
