....you got it!

I am the face AND heart behind Shelby Smith Photography, LLC. I’m a red bull drinking, tattoo lover, Target shopping, Michigander now living in Alabama. I am an adventurous soul with a passion for wanderlust who is all about having a good time, driving around for hours just to scout new locations, and chasing the sunset. Through the lens of my camera, I always strive to capturing the raw, edgy and intimate moments that tell the story of each and every one of my clients.


SO YOU MADE IT THIS FAR AND YOU STILL WANT TO KNOW MORE?

Want some more deets?!

I am a 29 year old mom of 3 beautiful babies- 2 girls and a boy!
I also have the most amazing husband ever who has been the love of my life for the last almost 9 years. My babies are my entire life and are actually the reason I became a photographer almost 8 years ago. 

Fast forward to when Aubree was about 6 months old, I got my first DSLR camera as a gift! I had point and shoot cameras growing up but nothing like this. Immediately, it all went from there. It started with taking photos of my first born, which expanded into a full-time photography business. I am beyond thankful that I took the leap of faith and that I had an incredible hype team right behind me!

I'm Shelby

THIS or THAT

"Everything I dreamed and hoped"

Omg the details. The light. The texture. 😭 I’m so so excited for these. As someone who is very insecure I’m always so so grateful the level of comfort you create in a shoot. You’re talented well beyond photography.

"It takes a professional to produce the right images. Shelby has honed in on her craft and is a true professional in every sense of the word!"

My husband and I do an anniversary session every year. This year we decided to have photos done while we were visiting my in-laws before they move back to the lower 48. Shelby was so gracious to work us into her schedule on a short notice. We were only in town for a weekend and Shelby was very accommodating to our tight schedule. Upon meeting Shelby it felt as if we were all already friends - it was so natural! We had a fun mix of 'classic' poses, modern poses, and active 'hair-flowing' poses. She captured different backgrounds within the same location to display 'Alaska!' - just what we were wanting! Many times people mistakenly think that it is more about having a nice camera than knowing how to properly operate the camera itself. But that couldn't be further from the truth.

"10/10 recommend Shelby; if you book with her, you will not regret the experience"

Literally the sweetest lady you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting! A true master of her craft and her dedication shows! I’ve had several photos taken by her, and she’s even edited some for me that I took of my kiddo for his birthday since we were stuck in quarantine! I could cry tears of pure happiness seeing the end products. Being in front of her lens is never awkward and her direction is effortless. Being yourself and having fun is all she wants and she captures it perfectly.
