Hi there! I'm very excited to have you here and for the opportunity to photograph you and your family!

If you're here, I'm sure you have plenty of questions about what your experience with Shalay Peterson Photography will be like! I'm here to answer those questions!

Shalay Peterson Photography (that's me!) offers a full-service experience that is unique to probably most of the photographers you've worked with in the past. I know the stress and anxiety that can often come along with trying to get ready for family photos and I'm here to assure you that I will take care of EVERYTHING! I will walk you step-by-step through the entire process. From what to wear, to uncooperative children, and even to trying to decide which pictures will be best on your wall. Don't worry, friend, I've got you covered! 

With 6 years of experience photographing families, and 2 small children of my own, I promise that I will take the time to ensure that everyone will have their chance to shine. You will end up with photos that will have you smiling for years to come, bringing back to all the wonderful memories of what your family was like at this moment in your life! I strive to create a fun and playful environment that will showcase your family's personalities in a stress-free way!


So let's get started! First, go ahead and check out my gallery of some of my awesome North Carolina families! I'm so excited to begin this journey with you!
