Shelby Borer Photography embraces a film look & lifestyle feel. Capturing the nanosecond of time you truly let go and be exactly who you are - capturing romance, experience and self love. Listening to and embracing all the parts of you that make your soul feel alive. 


The journey of my own self love has been long. My classes and experiences in the art education program at Metro State changed my life right before me. While they taught me a deeper love for myself - they also taught me how much I loved seeing other people express and embrace who they are. Being in such a supportive and challenging community like that lit a passion within me as it opened the gates of my empathic heart that had been dying to get out and create art. 


Over time, I became passionate for capturing emotion and love. The type of emotion that speaks through one single photograph. The type of love felt through actions instead of words. 


My favorite time of the day to shoot became the ever famous golden hour - right when the sun simultaneously kisses your skin and the horizon line at the same time. My favorite tones for editing slowly began aligning with my personality as I continued to meet myself through pursuing photography as a career. Soft and gentle, natural and real, mellow and warm. Walnut & cedar browns, deep greens, soft oranges and yellows. Sure enough in due time I grew into a slight obsession with that vintage filmy look. Any textures that make my photos feel timeless and nostalgic. There's just something about it that makes me feel alive in a world that seems to be progressing so fast.

I'd describe myself as a die hard romantic, an old soul, empathetic AF and down to earth. I can also be pretty quirky sometimes. Especially with people who open up to me. I love it when that happens with my clients. When we just click. It comes out in my work with you & really helps me capture those moments of complete untethered joy. Those in between posing moments of cozy love & contagious giggles. Those are the moments that make me feel like I've done my job.


Some things that I take pride in are being open minded, understanding, and honest. As well as, recognizing that I'm human and I too make mistakes sometimes. I am HUGE on communication. I believe communication is key when it comes to creating photos with you to meet your expectations. I'll be 100% with you when you ask me my opinion on outfits, locations or anything else that you have questions and concerns about. 

While my photography journey started just slightly over 10 years ago now I still continue to feel like I'm learning every time I pick up my camera. As photography continues to be a passion of mine I have also recently turned into my passion for learning more about Mental Health and Wellness. Last month I started my graduate program with Grand Canyon University and am excited to see in what ways it will help me in not just my personal life, but my business life too. 


 Shelby Borer Photography is an extension of me. A place where you and I - we get to create art together from your personal experiences. Shelby Borer Photography is where self expression is a safe place. Where any growth you're experiencing in life - is celebrated.
