I'm Shauna, or some people call me Shay,
Nice to meet you!
I am so excited you wanted to get to know me! So, let's start I was born, raised, and still live in the same neighborhood in South Jersey with my high school sweetheart and husband, Shane, and our 2 boys, Emmet and Gavin. We are surrounded by all of our closest friends and almost our entire family (almost all of them are even on our same block!) I love our community so much I even serve on the local board as the treasurer.
I have always been a creative. I sang in my school's choir from third grade through high school. I did many solo performances and competitions singing country music and playing guitar. I even won best vocalist in my senior year book! I also loved drama club and performing in plays. Does that sound like too much for a teenager? Because I still wonder how I did all of those things and how I had the energy!
Some of my favorite things are hosting parties, listening to audible, gardening, tending to my chickens, coffee(really just half and half), high noons, worship, planning, creating, and organizing! My play lists are a mess of different genres from Lil' Wayne to Slipknot to Casting Crowns, however if you see me bellowing a song and knowing every work, you can't ask me song/artist names I will have no idea. If I am not photographing or editing you will always catch me cleaning or doing yard work (my favorite hobbies.. weird I know!) I am always on the go and a stickler for routines.

I am a sucker for a good deal! Just ask my husband how many things I bring home that were just, "too good to pass up!" So when I found a camera deal on Black Friday I of course picked it up.
I immediately began to take the camera with me every where. I loved editing the photos and making them my own with free editing softwares I could find.
Then one day a coworker asked me to take formal photos for her family. That is when the spark was lit!
Weeks later I enrolled in the New York Institute of photography's professional course so I could learn as much as I could.
At the time I simply just wanted to do photography as a side gig because I loved it so much. But, I could have guessed that turkey and exhaustion infused purchase would have brought me to where I am today.
I am passionate about my work and my business and I love giving my clients an unforgettable experience and a gallery they will treasure forever! I love getting to know my clients, getting them comfortable, and making portraits and posing fun!
I am committed to an experience outside of just a transaction. I want to help my with all aspects of their day by sharing my knowledge and experiences to ensure not just their photos are amazing, but their day is amazing as well.
I can't wait to meet you and learn about you and make you apart of the Milestone family!
