opportunity is a ‘knockin!

The next month is going to be a whirlwind for me as it will be full of learning opportunities! I have decided to pursue my photography hobby a bit more, as I have fallen head over heels in love with taking pictures. I have a LOT to learn and fortunately the upcoming weeks will be able to give me some more experience, motivation and hopefully a bunch more tools to get moving.

Next weekend I am flying out to New Jersey to be second shoot on a wedding that my sister-in-law (of Just Kim Photo) is doing in Pennsylvania…and to hang with my adorable little niece. What fun!

THEN, she was kind enough to include me as her guest to the giant WPPI convention in Vegas in February, which is a HUGE week of workshops where I get to learn from the best in the biz. I am most looking forward to a seminar by the woman who shoots for Pottery Barn Kids. I cannot thank her enough for this opportunity & am SO excited for a week of learning & enjoying life outside of San Antonio!

That being said, I am beginning to portfolio build & creating a sister business to styleberryHOME, called styleberryFOTO. If you are in San Antonio and have adorable little ones that you’d love some pictures of, please email me at shawna@styleberryhome.com & let’s set up a time to get together & have some fun! My portfolio building sessions will be dirt cheap and will come with at least 5 digital high resolution images [at no extra charge] that you can blow up as large as poster size. I will ask that you sign a release so I can use these images on a new photography blogsite. If you are interested, I will be booking sessions beginning in February!

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. 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 subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? 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! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
