Midwest Models

Many great models get started at smaller agencies that often wind up placing them with larger agencies in the major markets. So don’t let the fact that you’re starting out in the Midwest scare you away from your dream career.

Get started today by booking a modeling portfolio session with us in 2018. Call 260-307-2876 or email info@ShadowlandsPhotography.com.




Multi-Season Session

In Indiana, it’s really tough to decide what season to do your senior pictures.  So, if you just cannot pick one, you will LOVE our new Multi-Season Sessions! Pick your two most favorite seasons (summer & winter, fall & spring, summer & fall…whatever floats your boat) and you get to do two different 45 minute sessions in both of those seasons. 🙂  It’s double the fun and you’ll get double the looks! ❤  Book now!



We need 2 lucky volunteers to model for our next photography workshop (Tools Behind the Click‬©) downtown Fort Wayne on Thursday, March 23 from 6-7:30pm. No experience necessary. Must be 16-36 years of age. All genders and ethnicities welcome. MUST CONTACT US BY MONDAY AT 5:00pm to be considered!


DM us for details or email info@ShadowlandsPhotography.com.

P.S. Final decisions will be made and announced on Monday night at 9:00pm!

April 11, 2015 is Celebration of Smiles Day

Your new headshot can help me change a child’s life! THIS SATURDAY.  Make a donation = get a new headshot! Join me this Saturday for a 10 minute mini-session at Lakeside Rose Garden (it’s going to be 61 degrees and sunny!).  Appointments are available 9-11am.  Spots are filling up! Claim your exact appointment time at https://shadowlandsphotography.wufoo.com/forms/celebration-of-smiles-day/ 

During this special one day event, when you give a minimum donation of $24 for Operation Smile, you will receive a gift of a 10 minute mini-session and a professional quality headshot as a 5″x7″ print.

100% of each donation will go to support the work of the Operation Smile (which provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children around the world). Because the medical and support staff of Operation Smile volunteer their services, it costs as little as $240 to perform a simple cleft lip surgery.  To learn more about Operation Smile, visit https://www.youtube.com/user/CreateSmiles  

For every 10 sessions that done on Celebration of Smiles Day, one precious child will receive the life-changing gift of surgery. The more you donate, the more children’s lives we will be able to change together!


Class of 2015 High School Senior: Shealee

Shealee (or Shea to those who know her well) is a senior at Homestead High School.  She is fun, laid back and genuine (AND genuinely BEAUTIFUL – her blue eyes are like a gentle sea – SO much fun to capture).

Here are some sneak peeks of a few of my favorite images from her high school senior portrait session:
