Capturing all the messy, loving, ordinary, but extraordinary moments.

I see the beauty while watching other mamas with their children, I see and recognize the moments that are so tender, so trying, so tiring, so ordinary, but so wonderful.

These moments, to us, sometimes seem small, but they are the moments that make up the childhood of our children. These are the moments that we will someday try to pull back from our memory to relish again. I want to capture them, to hold on to them so tightly. The best way I know how is to be conscious that they are happening, and to preserve them with photographs.

“Wow Shelley! They are beautiful shots. Just so lovely. I love them and you really captured something. I can’t thank you enough. I am tearing up.... I felt so happy seeing them. It’s deeply rewarding to see a picture of love.”

“...I don’t have the words. What a gift you have given me. Thank you, so truly. This is exactly what I needed right now, a mirror into myself mothering. It’s so beautiful, I can’t thank you enough, seriously....
