Welcome to the blog of Shantell Wyatt Photography! This is where you can find sneek peaks, recent session showcases, current specials, and view products.

I'll also be blogging about my life, which is full of fun, rarely a dull moment! I am known as mommy to a charismatic 6 yr old girl, and a rambunctious and bull-headed 3 yr old boy. My husband supports me in all my endeavors and I thank him for that, this dream would not be possible without his positive attitude!

I specialize in a more candid approach to photography, my style can be seen both here and on my website. Please feel free to browse around; bookmark my site, I truly hope my blog becomes a favorite of yours. I hope that you enjoy my work as much as I do, and I welcome you to check back often and watch the kids grow!
Memories all too often fade....remember the best ones.

:: giggles n grins :: {Dallas/Fort Worth Photographer Shantell Wyatt}

I had the pleasure of meeting Miss A, let me tell you what a hoot she is! You can see her fun and charismatic personality in each of these. She was so good for our shoot, although she didn't love the tutu, she did inspire me to start an 'outtakes' gallery on my website!

She wasn't too sure why we just plopped her down here, & decided it wasn't for her, but I did catch this expression which probably sums up exactly what she was thinking at this moment......that me and here mama had lost it!

And here is the tutu shot, we did get quite a few of her not cryiing, but this is just so classic. I hope mom and dad bust this one out to show the prom date!

This baby bum is just too cute! About 30 seconds after this shot, we thought Miss A discovered her girl parts, but she was just playing in the little puddle she had made,

it caught us off guard but was hilarious!!

I had a blast and look forward to watching Miss A grow!

:: labor day special :: {Dallas/Fort Worth Photographer Shantell Wyatt}

While many of us were relaxing with the family, Miss E made sure her mom and dad were in the midst of a labor day they would never forget. She is one of my 'labor on labor day' winners. I had the awesome opportunity to phorograph Miss E when she was just shy of two weeks old, it was such a fun experience! We only had one poopy explosion, and of course it was right on mom (on her birthday no less).
But, in true mom fashion mom barely flinched and the session continued.
There were too many favorites to choose, so there is a large showcase of this beauty.

This image was captured just moment before the mess, really we set ourselves up thought, I think she did great only messing once!

:: true beauty :: {Dallas/Fort Worth Photography Shantell Wyatt}

During a summer trip to an intimate workshop in Illinois, I had the joy of photographing this cutie. She was such a good model & really connected with the camera, and she's only 6!
I'm working on going through and reworking some older images & (hopefully) cleaning off my hard drive and found these and just had to share.

:: it's in the eyes :: {Dallas/Fort Worth Photographer Shantell Wyatt}

I was asked to photogrpaher this adorable little girl by her grandparents. It was so nice to work with them. We had such a relaxed and fun time exploring with Miss E. She is such an inquisitive little one, she has very unique and beautiful eyes that look so wise for such a young girl! Here are some of my favorite from our session.

Here is Miss E on her Great Grandmother's piano. Her Grandmother had a love for music and it seems that Miss E may follow in her footsteps! Here she is taking a little rest : )

Thank you for the chance to meet Miss E, she was such a fun little girl!

:: New studio location for Shantell Wyatt Photography :: {Dallas/Fort Worth Photographer Shantell Wyatt}

There it is, my big news! I have had an amazing opportunity come up and I will now have my own studio location! I have teamed up with Ladybugs Children's Boutique in Mansfield. We're in the process of getting all set up now, but come on down to Ladybugs and check it out!

Here is the wall color before.... not bad, but not great to photograph in.

Here's Josh taking apart the nifty contraption that was already there.

Josh (who despises painting) and I painted it a a neutral beige,

it goes awesome with the floors!

Be on the lookout for more updates and progress pictures as we get it finished up! : )
