Here it is! The first blog post on my shiny, new, gorgeous website! It’s been a long time coming and I’m so beyond thrilled to share my life and work with you.
So, a little about me… I’m Shauna. I’m a wedding and senior portrait photographer serving all of Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor. I’m a Michigan State alumni (GO SPARTANS!), but all of you UofM fans shouldn’t hold it against me… I’ve slowly fell in love with Ann Arbor and UofM’s campus the past few years and LOVE shooting there. There are few things I love more in this world than traveling. Europe, road trips, Disneyworld; I’m most happy with a camera in hand and my family by my side. Speaking of those few things that I love more than traveling… their names are Joey, Macie, and Charlie. My husband Joey and I will be married 6 years this October and our world revolves around our two most beautiful and wonderful accomplishments; our daughters Macie & Charlie. My life just wouldn’t be the same without ice cream or craft beer, and I’ll argue to no end with anyone that trash talks the Lions, Tigers, or Red Wings (the best hockey team on the planet). I’m a Detroit girl! Born and raised. There’s something about an underdog and the wonderful, hardworking people that live here, that makes me love this awesome city.
The thought of Shauna Wear Photography began as a dream when I was a young child. I’ve always had a camera in my hand. Always. I was my family’s photographer at holidays and events and caught all my school memories on film starting in Elementary. In college, I bought my first big girl camera and had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Europe for a semester. The photographs I took during that time are some of my very favorite and most cherished to date. It wasn’t until 2011, after the birth of our oldest daughter, that I considered making my dream into a career. With the love and support of my husband, I launched Shauna Wear Photography in 2012. This past year, I’ve specialized in shooting what I’m most passionate about – weddings and high school seniors.
I love my clients. I love getting to know my clients. I love talking to brides and grooms about the details of their big day and all of the styling options available to each of my amazing seniors. Their kind words always put tears in my eyes because I am so passionate about what I do, and know how important it is to successfully capture some of the most memorable moments in their lives. I can’t wait to share my work with you and the special stories behind each and every one of my incredible clients. Have a question for me? Want to comment?
