Capturing real moments, real magic

Hello! I'm Shauna. The fact that you're here means you’ve most likely connected with my work, and for that I’m grateful. Thank you!

Family documentary photography is my absolute passion. I love the avenue that photography provides to record and preserve a family’s journey through this life. My life’s work is to help others see the magic in their own lives and in the moments they share with their loved ones.

When I worked at Disneyland as a young 18yr old (in the character department), I kept a little notebook in my bag and when I went I on break, I’d sit backstage and write a little entry about a “magical moment” that happened either to me or with me. I knew my time was short as a cast member and so I wanted to embrace and appreciate every minute I had there.

That practice of being quick to observe little magical moments carried over to when I first became a mother, but writing things down didn’t satisfy me enough. I wanted to freeze time in order to cherish those moments more fully. Thus began my journey in photography, where I developed a skill that would enhance my ability to document. Over the years, I have become an avid blogger and lover of family photobooks. Once you see my stack of books with my children pouring all over them, you’ll understand why I love photography and these books so much.

I have been married to my high school crush for almost 9 years now and we have three beautiful children, Lucy (7), Todd (5), and Annie (3).

We currently live in Los Angeles and we love exploring all of the many wonderful things this big city has to offer. Not to mention, we love going to the beach and riding our bikes along the coast! 

I’m excited to meet you and your precious clan and to experience what makes YOUR family magical!
