"When you photograph a face, you photograph the soul behind it."
I have been deeply drawn to the process of storytelling through images. Of capturing stills that give a glimpse of how you live and love. When a comfortable, open space is created, it gives way to honest expression and opens the door of your heart and soul. There is something so raw, real and special about unplanned, authentic moments; moments that showcase the real you, who you are, and who you have been created to be. I want to document all of you; the way your eyes light up when you smile; the laughs, the tears, and everything in-between. Every moment matters. Every moment is a memory, waiting to be captured and cherished forever.
"I reached out to Shantal in the very last minute and asked her to capture our annual family Christmas card photo. What ensued was a lovely home session filled with genuine fun and laughter. Shantal accommodated our tight schedule and was an absolute dream to work with. I truly cannot recommend her enough! Thank you so much for our incredible photos - they are such treasures and we are so blessed to have met you!"
"We felt instantly at ease with Shantal when we met her... which made the ensuing photo shoot with six adults and four littles very enjoyable and successful. Shantal is lovely and easy-going, and great with kids. The photos... I have no words! They are stunning and I am so, so happy with them! Thank you!!!"
"Shantal has blown me away over the years that I've known her! She had taken my informal college grad photos, my maternity photos, my marriage photos, and so much more! As a photographer myself, I truly understand how important it is to pick the right photographer to capture those special and important moments in your life. Shantal has been there for 3 major ones, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon."
"Shantal has completely changed the way I feel about having my photo taken. I don't consider myself as photogenic, but Shantal made me feel so confident and comfortable during my shoot that my photos turned out amazing. I use them for all my social media, including, my professional website. I reccomend Shantal to friends every chance I get, and will definitely use her every time we need family photos and professional photos taken."
"I couldn't be happier with the photos taken by Shantal. She will be the one we will continue to go to for family photos and my camera shy husband wants to be included next time because of how happy we were with the photos."
