it’s time. | San Antonio Maternity Photographer

“He likes them all” she said. “It’s the first time he’s ever been happy with pictures!”

[insert giant ::::::sigh:::::: of relief here]

& then she started telling me which ones were getting blown up huge in her house.


mission. accomplished.

You first saw a sneak peek of my BFF Victoria here. Knowing full well that he was very fussy about pictures, I knew this was no easy task. I was nervous. anxious. hopeful. But I am going to stick to what I said the last time: sometimes a best friend is exactly the right person to take your pictures…because she knows YOU. The real you. & enough about the man in your life to know how to make him comfortable too.

Meet my beautiful BFF & her sweet hubby…as I see them. :)


[she said the one below is his favorite]


[she said the one below is her first “REAL” picture of him…ever]


[& below is my favorite. the way they are holding each other is just…so very them.]


[is she stunning, or what?!]


[her only request was to include her push present: a very fancy limited edition turquoise Breitling :) lucky mama!]


& now…it’s time. We are ready for the little miss to make her debut! I have ideas galore…a shoot outdoors…a lensbaby…a little vintagey wagon…!! :)

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog.

From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone.

I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together!
