Client Reviews of Shelly Peterson Photography

Wow!! The pictures are absolutely stunning.  Thank you so much for an amazing (newborn) photo session.  I also wanted to compliment you on your scheduling process. It was so nice to have the handouts and additional information on what to bring and how to prepare.  As a new mom with limited sleep this was so helpful.  We look forward to working with you again in the future.  I'm sure 6 months will be here before we know it!

Wow, thanks for getting back to us so quickly with the images!  I really appreciated all the time and thoughtfulness with he shoot and with our oldest child.  You did such a fantastic job!  I'm so glad you were able to capture these precious and priceless memories of our family and new addition.  The photos are absolutely beautiful.  We look forward to more pictures with you in the future!  Thank you so much!


I highly recommend Shelly Peterson, she is incredibly talented, organized, and has the perfect vision for capturing the most amazing, breath taking photos.  I recently came in to get photos of my 6 month old baby along with my two year old.  We are amazed with how beautiful the pictures turned out.  If you want perfect, heart warming, and precious moments captured of your little ones and family look no further.

Thank you so much for a wonderful maternity shoot.  You made me feel so comfortable, beautiful, and empowered!  We have spent time looking at the gallery and are in love with the images.  You did an amazing job capturing the beauty of pregnancy.  Your talent and attention to detail is one in a million.  You are an artist!  We can't wait to see what the newborn shoot brings!

Shelly is amazing.  We went to her 3.5 years ago with our daughter and as soon as I found out I was pregnant again I knew we had to go with her again with our son.  I was really nervous how my 3.5 year daughter would do and Shelly was amazing - keeping her entertained and engaged during the photo session.  She's amazing with newborns - super gentle, caring and loving.  I highly recommend.  Her prices are reasonable, she replies in a timely manner, and does amazing quality work!

Shelly is absolutely wonderful to work with, she listened to what I wanted and helped make it come to life.  She has so many different props and fabrics it was hard to make a decision on what to use!  I am in LOVE with the images we got back and can't wait to print them and hang them up in our home.  Thank you Shelly for capturing our sweet baby girl so perfectly!

I loved Shelly's work from the get go!  She's quick to respond and very creative.  She's so sweet and gentle with kids.  It's impressive.  I brought my daughter in to Shelly for her newborn session and then skipped for her 1st birthday.  HUGE mistake.  I regret not having her doing them then.  At 2 we booked Shelly again and I was not disappointed.  Her work is impeccable! :D  Best photographer in town for sure.

Shelly was such an amazing photographer.  She worked so well with our 6 month old and captured the most beautiful photos.  She was extremely kind and did an amazing job overall.  I can't wait to book for our baby's 1 year photos!  Highly recommend coming to Shelly for photos.

Shelly did an amazing job capturing pictures of my sweet girl.  Seeing how she prepared and organized everything for the shoot was awesome to see.  I loved how she worked with my baby while posing her for the pictures.  She is great at her job and her pictures show it.

~ Karen Garcia

I found Shelly on Facebook and fell in love with her portfolio.  She's a must for any newborn session.  Shelly is an amazing photographer and really knows how to work with babies.  We went back to get my little ones 6 month session and can't wait to go back for her 1st Birthday Cake Smash session.

Hi Shelly,  The Photos are beautiful....I can't thank you enough!!! I honestly can't decide which ones to use for printed photos because there are so many great shots!!  Plus, you are so wonderful with the kiddos, it makes for a great experience.  You are the best!!

~Talia Sanderson

Shelly did an incredible job with my newborn nephew's pictures!  Our family is so happy with how the pictures turned out.  Her prices are totally reasonable, especially for the quality.  I would absolutely recommend Shelly for newborn photos.  She's very professional and knows what she's doing!

~ Jonathan Macias

Shelly does amazing work! She had done 2 shoots for me - my maternity shoot and a family shoot after baby - and I can't rave enough about her.  She made me feel so beautiful and comfortable.  She even came to our house and shot on location.  Plus she was great with our feisty 3 year old that DID NOT want his picture taken.  Her pictures perfectly captured a moment in time and I will cherish them always.  They are stunning!

~ Becky Williams

Shelly was amazing to work with.  We did a family portrait session and it turned out perfect.  I have a 2 year old and a 6 month old (at the time) and Shelly went above and beyond to make us all feel so welcomed & comfortable.  Not to mention the great lengths she took to get the kids with smiles on their faces.  Will definitely be going back for more family/kid pictures.

~ Christiane Bucrek

Shelly has come to our house on 2 separate occasions to shoot our family photos.  They turned out great both times.  We have a 1 and 2.5 year old and she was able to get their attention and provide us with a great selection of photos.  We plan on using her for all our family pics!

~ Steph Prange

Shelly takes amazing pictures!  She is also very good with babies, kind and patient, made for a wonderful experience at our newborns photo shoot.  We're very happy with the quality of the pictures!

~ Mayra Macias

We picked up our album from the post office and it's absolutely wonderful - we love it!  We're thrilled with the infant photos in the album.  You did a fantastic job and we couldn't be happier that we made the decision to work with you.  Thank you!

~ Kristin M.

We had the great pleasure of working with Shelly Peterson Photography for our son's newborn photos.  It's something I never did with our daughter, and so glad we fit in for our son.  If you are expecting a baby, be sure to schedule this in with Shelly for when the baby is around 8 days old.  She is a wizard!  I'll admit, I was skeptical they would turn out because we did this at 2 weeks when our son was starting to be more alert, and I wasn't feeling pretty, but she worked her magic, and got him to do all of the poses, and she even convinced me to hop in and made me look decent.

Good Morning Shelly - These are amazing!  You made my morning!  I literally had tears when I looked through the photos!  I went out to the kitchen to show my husband and said "Look, those are our babies.  I can't believe it!"  Thank you so so much!

~ Mallory B.

These are absolutely stunning images! I especially love the closer up shots, and started to tear up over the image of her hand, of all things!  Thanks for all the hard work!  I know our daughter was a little challenging as she wouldn't settle very well, and so we really appreciated your ability to calm and comfort as well!  They are gorgeous pictures. You are magic!

~ Emily F.

Shelly took photos of our 11 month old and they are so perfect!  She totally captured her personality.  We are so thrilled with how they turned out.

~ Lauren Oka

All I can say is WOW!!! Thank you so much!  This photo shoot turned out even better than I could've imagined!  I absolutely love how you captured our family.  The photos show our daughter's spunky personality and the joy that she brings to my husband and me.  One thing I noticed about myself is that I look SO HAPPY in these photos! I feel that you capture the authentic moments so well.  Thank you so much.  We love working with you as our photographer.  With gratitude,
