I was super excited for my session but still a little nervous. After we started my hair and makeup my nerves went away and I knew it was going to be a super fun experience!! Shonda did my hair and makeup exactly how I had wanted, and she made me feel comfortable and confident.
All the photo locations matched my personality and outfits perfectly! The whole session was so much more fun than I expected, and Shonda made me feel confident in myself.
Shonda made the entire experience so much fun, and she is super amazing to work with.
~Annika Class of 2020
The entire experience from start to finish was amazing! I was super excited for Annika because I knew how much fun she’d have being pampered during this process. Well Shonda did not disappoint!! She thinks of everything...from music playlists to make-up and hair that fit Annika’s personality perfectly!
As the Mom, I was thankful to be included in the senior portrait experience! Thank you so much, Shonda, for a fun afternoon highlighting Annika!! We both had an amazing day with you!!
~Karyn, Annika's Mom
I loved everything about my session: the hair the make up the locations the outfits!
Shonda made me feel super comfortable and confident.
I can’t imagine having done my senior pictures with anyone else!
~Kilynn Class of 2020
Kilynns session was so much fun! From the hair, makeup, fashion consult, all of it made it so easy and fun! And stress free!! The locations fit Kilynns looks perfectly! Kilynn had two different "styles" for her looks and both fit her perfectly, add the great locations and it was just an awesome experience. She loved the whole process. I loved watching her start out her session a bit more shy and end it feeling so much more confident and comfortable in front of the camera. Thank you Shonda!
What a fabulous start to senior year!
~Kimberly, Kilynn's Mom

Makenna's senior session was a very fun experience! Shonda made this important mark in her life memorable, fun and very customized to everything Makenna wanted. Thank you Shonda for the beautiful photos and the fun day in the city!
~Myles, Makenna's Dad
The session with Shonda was so memorable. Everything from the clothing to the locations matched me. I felt comfortable and confident throughout the session. Shonda also made it fun along the way. It's something I will never forget.
~Makenna Class of 2020
Shonda took the time to figure out what Makenna was passionate about and places she felt comfortable and at home which took them from tall grasses to libraries. I also like the way Shonda helped Makenna work through the self consciousness that everybody experiences in front of a camera.
~Donna, Makenna's Mom

~Krista, Samantha's Mom
Shonda was great to work with. She is very nice and funny which made me feel at ease and made the whole experience fun and worth while. I don't think I would have wanted anyone else to take my senior photos.
~Alex Class of 2020
From the start Shonda has been great to work with. Scheduling our son's senior photos was easy and she provided us a great reference for styling for our photo session. She was very receptive to ideas we had about locations and really understood what our vision was. We really appreciated her interaction with our son, her direction and sense of humor really made him feel comfortable and you can see that in his pictures.
Shonda has been an absolute dream to work with and we are so very thankful for the amazing experience.
~Courtney, Alex's Mom
“I love fashion, I love trends and I love living in the moment. Shonda went above and beyond finding about what I like, and what I am about.
When I came in for my session, I was confident but still nervous. As soon as I walked into her gorgeous studio and brought back to start make up, all my stress faded away. I had such an amazing time and before I left, I knew something magical had happened!
Thank you Shonda for lifetime memories!”
"My daughter wanted to do something special to commemorate her 16th Birthday. We spoke with Shonda and decided that a photoshoot sounded like an extremely fun and memorable experience.
Boy! Was it ever! Shonda is so thorough with every detail. Such an added bonus to have someone who can apply expertise makeup and is current on hair styling. Magge just had to show up and Shonda worked her magic.
Her passion for her craft is off the charts. Such an empowering experience. Thank you Shonda!"

"Working with this amazing woman in the past, was always an experience being her makeup artist, coming into her trendy welcoming studio made you feel posh and special.
For my first experience in front of the camera, Shonda brought me into her little world of beauty and fun! Her makeup and fashion area is clean and tidy, everything organized to guide you through a plethora of fun outfits for your experience.
I enjoyed having my makeup done by someone else for a change, and Shonda consulted with me through everything she was doing.
Then the magic happened, I was not the most experienced model, but Shonda had amazing ideas on posing that allowed her to really capture my fun and sexy side! Her excitement made me more and more confident. And I knew whatever I was doing was working. She guided me through the whole shoot. And not to mention, she is hilarious and I couldn't stop laughing! Super fun! I had a blast!
And I'm absolutely thrilled to see the finished product!"

"My time with Shonda was by far one of the most relaxing, yet fun atmospheres I've ever encountered being photographed. She did my hair and makeup, which were fabulous, along with getting to know me and making me feel more comfortable around her. During the session, I felt so confident and relaxed which never happens when I'm in front of the camera. She had this calming effect and made me feel beautiful! I couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere, session or photographer. Thank you Shonda for dolling me up and making me feel beautiful again! You are incredible."
"Nobody has ever given me that much attention. She treated me
like I was the most important person in the world. I can't thank her enough for these pictures of me!"
As a true tomboy, I have no idea how to do hair and makeup.
Working with Shonda was stress free and easy. She took care of
everything. And we had fun the entire time.
A true thank you!
