I’m Shirene, a Lifestyle and Storytelling photographer serving the Quad Cities.
I specialize in photographing families, children, and high school seniors.
I’m also a wife, mother, coffee addict, IT nerd, and CrossFit addict. I love meeting new people as much as I love curling up on the couch in my sweatpants with a nice glass of wine (or ice cream). It’s all about balance, right?
I understand that life is hectic and messy and amazing all at once. Every stage in your life has something unique and memorable that you just want to hold onto and capture. Kids grow fast — too fast. One minute it’s snuggles and up all night, the next they are talking back and doing things their own way. As a mom, I want to remember every. single. detail. Photography gives me the ability to freeze those moments and tell a story, and that is what I love the most.
I want to capture your family as they are right now. Authentic, emotional images that reflect the real you. I will focus on interactions and snuggles. Play some games. Chase your kids around! I won’t focus on lots of awkward poses or expect your littles to sit perfectly still and smile, but I will get a few classic shots of everyone looking and smiling together. At the end of the day, I want your session to tell the story of your family as they are right now. Most importantly, I want to create a fun experience that leaves you feeling comfortable and relaxed!
Now that you know a little more about me, I'd love to get to know more about you. If you have questions or would like more information about a session, please contact me. I can't wait to hear from you!
