what's brought me here ...

When I was 18 I moved to the heart of Colorado from a small town in Western Nebraska. Moving into the city was truly something else. It brought out a curiosity in me I didn't know was even there. As I slowly became exposed to the art world and what it had to offer me I found a love for everything that is was. In my sophomore year of college I took a film photography class & truly picked up my first camera. Since then I haven't been able to put them down.


In the fall of 2013 Shelby Borer Photography was established. I started with shooting portraits and learning my way around the digital camera. Over the years I discovered a passion for connecting with others and hearing their stories, capturing the essence of what made them who they truly are. I tried everything from boudoir and lifestyle photography to weddings and newborn sessions. After what felt like truly "doing it all" for some time - this past year I've found myself in a season of slowness - focusing solely on the things & the sessions that make me feel the most alive. 

Small business & branding photography.

Don't worry the old romantic soul in me still loves a small wedding and a lovey engagement session - which I don't think I'll never stop shooting. But there's just something about working with fellow small business owners and helping them create consistency in their brand that makes me all sorts of giddy inside. Lately I've been working on some new additions to my photography business that are geared towards small business owners, as well as contracts for brand coaching.
