"Shawna is truly the best, and her work is nothing short of perfection. Every time I hire someone to take our family's photos, I'm never completely satisfied with how they turn out...until I had Shawna take our photos. Her skill level and eye for capturing a beautiful moment is incredible, and the shots she gets are just breathtaking. She is also great with kids and is always able to get amazing photos of them. She has a way of capturing natural beauty and has an easygoing and professional way about her. I treasure the photos she has taken of us and could not recommend her enough!"
"Shawna was beyond a blessing for both our engagement and wedding photos. From the start, she put us at ease, had an amazing and fun attitude and the end results were so beautiful. If you're looking for someone to capture the light and life of a special day, you've found her!"
Kaileen and Ritchie, Bride and Groom

"Shawna is incredible and has a true gift. She took my head shots for my updated website. Being a fashion stylist, I'm always behind the camera and I really struggle to feel confident in front of the camera. With Shawna, she brought out a confidence In me and I felt beautiful. She helped me with my Insecurities and When I got the images back I was amazed at how she captured my personality.

"I have worked with Shawna on several events. She is one of my favorite photographers to work with. Shawna is very talented and puts her subjects and those she coordinates with at ease. Love her work."
Lorena Riach, Wedding Planner www.rusticvintageevents.com
"I cannot say enough about Shawna! I have never had pictures as beautiful as those she takes. What started out as an occasional shoot for my blog has grown to entrusting her to document the most important moments of my life-birthday parties, baby showers and now, my newborn son. She has a magic eye that sees the photo opportunity in everything. I wish she was around when my husband and I got married, but I tease him and tell him we need to renew our vows just so Shawna can be our photographer. To top it off, she is professional and reliable and one of the very best people I know. Shawna will be in my family's life forever!"
Michelle Berger, Fashion Blogger www.golddustandsugarlust.com
"Shawna was very professional and put together . She made my day move with such easy and I am happy with the over 5000 photos she captured of our special day !"
Amanda Ricker, bride
"When my husband and I started looking for a wedding photographer, we contacted hundreds it felt like, but no one impressed us more then Shawna. Not only does she have an incredible eye for photography, but she caters to your schedule, is proactive in following through with deadlines and appointments, and was overall the easiest part of planning for our wedding. It was a HUGE relief on us to be able to work with Shawna. Wedding planning is tough (to say the least), and I don't know if we would have gotten everything done without her!
The photo shoot felt so fun and natural, and our expectations of the quality of our wedding pictures went far beyond anything we could have ever imagined. We could not count the number of compliments and praise we received because of the beauty and professional look of the portraits.
After our first experience with engagement photos, we immediately booked another appointment for bridals.
If those things weren't enough, the price we paid for the shoots was significantly better than the research we did for other photographers.
We now have a 9 month old girl and the pictures that Shawna took of her are breathtaking!
She can literally do it all! She will be our family photographer until we are old and grey. We love her!!"
Lauren Taggart, bride
"Shawna finds the light and has an eye for the perfect picture. I'm an interior decorator and I have her photograph my projects. She does beautiful work, brings out the details, and makes me look good. I have also seen her 'human' photography and its breathtaking. Highly recommended!"
Claudine Barnett, Interior decorator/owner of CBID design
"Shawna is simply amazing and I don't say that lightly. She has a fantastic eye and her amazing artistic expression is captured in her shots. She has the ability to capture a moment like no photographer I've ever seen. My brother being a professional photographer has taught me a lot about the art of photography and composition and Shawna has the knowledge and experience to knock any photo shoot out of the park every single time."
Joshua Mezin, groom
"Shawna is amazing and the only photographer that I use. She has taken many pictures of my family throughout the years- newborn photos of my daughter, Christmas card family pictures, my sister's wedding photos, my sister-in-law's maternity photos, head shots for work and even a grand parent/ grand kids photo shoot. I cherish these pictures! She has a natural ability to capture the right look and is very fun to work with. My husband and kids do not like to take pictures usually but do not mind when Shawna has the camera!"
"Shawna has a way of capturing emotion as well as beautiful natural light in her photos. She did my engagements, wedding, and bridals, and I couldn't be happier to have those shots for the rest of my life. Aside from that, she is so kind and wonderful to work with. She really tries to get the shots you are looking for! :)"
Collette McCusker, bride
"Shawna did our first family photo shoot since the birth of our daughter, and I am so grateful to have found her! My husband and I have had professional pictures taken every year since weve been been married, and we both agree that we have never had so much fun. We left the shoot still smiling and laughing, including the baby! I love all the special moments she was able to capture in the two hours we spent with her. I loved that she took the time to call and chat before the shoot, too, to plan it all out. She even made a flower crown for my daughter to use! She is warm and relaxed and never makes you feel rushed. Her photographs are stunning, and I will cherish them always. Thank you, Shawna, I cant wait for next year!"
"I have been wanting a family beach photo shoot for years. When I saw Shawna's work I knew I had found what I was looking for. We were moving from California to Texas and I wanted some family photos that captured our carefree days at the ocean. Shawna was great with my three girls... and the family dog! Everyone is comfortable with her and you don't feel rushed or posed. It's all so natural and fun. I would recommend her to anyone."
"Shawna Henrie is such an incredible photographer and very special person! When we first met her, we knew she was going to be awesome because she had so many creative ideas about location and style. Her relaxed and kind hearted nature made us all feel comfortable right away. The kids had so much fun too, even the baby! Most importantly, she made my daughters look and feel beautiful both inside and out. She made Alaina feel so very special too, just like a princess and that means so much to me! Shawna has become a great friend in such a short time and truly is one of the most kind hearted people I know. We are blessed to have found her and look forward to working with her again soon! I thank her sincerely for all the beautiful photos she has given us."
"When planning my daughter's wedding we agreed that we wanted more than the typical wedding photos. We are so happy we found Bleudog Fotography. Shawna Henrie is an amazing photographer and artist. The pictures are gorgeous! Each one is a work of art. We could not be more pleased."
Lori Jeppson, mother of the bride
"Shawna has a sharp eye and is a talented photographer dedicated to making the natural beauty of her models shine that much more. She is as professional as she is kind. I highly recommend her."
Talia Fuhrman, Author of Love Your Body www.taliafuhrman.com
"Shawna Henrie, you are absolutely amazing. You bring out the best in people, even those who are uncomfortable taking pictures. Your photos prove it! You made my son's senior and daughter's eighth grade graduation pictures perfect. What happy memories for our whole family. I am glad I met you, so we can continue documenting happy family events. Thank you Bleudog Fotography."
"Shawna has been taking my photos since the birth of my daughter. She is so creative and I love her style of photography, which is so unique. For my newborn photos she had my baby and I wear all white and she took the pictures on my white bed. She came at the perfect time of day and captured such a special moment. It looked like a dream. I was so so happy with them! I am uncomfortable in front of the camera sometimes but she made me feel at ease and the pictures looked very natural.
She also, took our family Christmas photos which were awesome. We wanted to take them at three different locations and Shawna was right on board. She took so many pictures I could barely choose because of all the great options.
I can't wait for our next photo session, which is coming up soon. Shawna is the absolute best out there and I feel so lucky to have such a talented photographer taking our pictures and capturing our special moments which will be treasured forever!"
“I’ve worked with Shawna on multiple fashion shoots, and I have to say that working with her is an absolute pleasure. Shawna is a true photography professional, from start to finish. Besides possessing an artistic eye, she is also keen on unique location scouting and natural light chasing. Her sweet personality puts everyone at ease, even my not-so-photo-loving husband. She is willing to go above and beyond for the perfect shot, and I always know I’m going to be happy with the final product.
Irina Bond, Fashion Blogger www.bondgirlglam.com
"I have been a wedding coordinator for the past six years and have worked with hundreds of photographers. And I can say that without a doubt, Shawna is my absolute favorite to work with! Not only is her work absolutely stunning, but she takes each and every wedding, photo shoot, and single photo to heart and truly pours her heart and soul into capturing beautiful memories. Shawna gets along with everyone (literally everyone) and is able to connect with each of her clients on a personal level, making you feel at ease, comfortable, and allowing her to capture true emotions in her photography. I recommend Shawna to every single one of my clients and she is the only photographer I use for my own photo shoots, personal, family and business. Just take one look at her work, meet her just once, and you will fall in love!"
