Shelly’s love of photography started early. She used to sneak the family camera in her backpack to elementary school and take pictures of her friends on the playground. She would then put the film in her mom's purse, so she'd find it and develop it. Of course, her mom would smile as she handed Shelly the images. Shelly still carries that excitement, enthusiasm, and a bit of girlhood wonderment with her on every shoot. With her background in professional sports, corporate finance, and business consulting, Shelly brings a unique blend of knowledge to help achieve the creative vision for each of her many clients.

Kevin Arnold is an advertising photographer who specializes in lifestyle and landscape imagery. Authenticity is the hallmark of his work: shooting on location with people who live the lifestyle of the brand and show it in their faces, ease of movement, love of place. Kevin strives to capture the genuine whatever its form, humour, painful self-extension, or serene moments of appreciation. In his landscape work, he prefers to find the intimate and believable in the natural world...a glimpse of a place that entices you to get out and explore the world.
