Kiely, which is originally an Irish last name, is actually my middle name (pronounced like the common name "Kylie").
Since I could hold a crayon, art has always been a huge part of my life. I always looked for the beauty in everything, and if I couldn't find it, I would figure out how to create it. In high school, the camera made it into my hand, and I found my true passion in art. It wouldn't be until years later, that my passion turned into my career.
My career began when my first daughter was born. Naturally, I couldn't put the camera down for a second capturing every little feature and moment of my baby. I also spent a considerable amount of time photographing for an animal rescue group, Houston Cares Animal Rescue. So, you can probably guess I have a high comfort level and lots of experience working with animals and children! Maternity is also a passion of mine, as it is such a privilege to capture that very beautiful and special moment in a couple's life.

"We are so happy to call Shauna our family photographer. She has been there to capture our family’s pictures through the years including holidays, maternity, newborn and baptismal sessions. She has been so patient and engaging with our three girls and always manages to get amazing pictures of them! We couldn’t recommend Shauna enough, she truly is a fantastic photographer."

"Shauna was an absolute delight to have shoot our family, she is beyond patient and so good with kids. Not only is Shauna very talented behind the lens but also afterward with editing, it is so hard to find a photographer who excels at both as Shauna does. Her artistic skill set makes for beautiful photographs that are treasured forever."

"I found Shauna through her volunteer work with a local animal rescue. Since she obviously was comfortable taking photos of dogs I wanted to use her for our family photo so we could include our large dog. Turns out she is not only amazing working with animals, but she handles grumpy husbands and children so well too!! I’ve gone through a few different photographers for our family photos, but Shauna is the real deal. She is patient, creative and quick. She gets a 5 star rating from me."

"With seven of us in our family, capturing decent family pictures is quite the challenge! Between our tiny threenager, preteen, and three goofs in between, it’s so hard to get everyone looking their best. Somehow, Shauna did just that last month and not only am I in love with our pictures, I continue to get compliments across the board. We have already scheduled our next session and look forward to finally getting on track with routine family photos!"

"We have loved working with Shauna to capture our family pictures! She was patient with our energetic son and large dog to help get memorable candid photos. I loved how helpful she was in placing us to get the right shot and had a quick turnaround with edited photos. We always get compliments on our framed photos she captured and I would recommend her to anyone!"
