Life is messy, unpredictable, and beautiful in its imperfections. I believe that the most meaningful photographs are the ones that tell a story, capturing the essence of your everyday moments. 

If you want photos that are easy, stress-free and authentic (no posing or forced smiles here!) then 

you're in the right place.

hey i'm





Shelby!




I've been photographing friends and family for almost 15 years and started shelby rose photo full time in 2017. Photography has always been my biggest passion in life.

I love finding joy in everyday life, no matter how messy or chaotic your life feels I assure you there is beauty in it all. Whether you're planning a small wedding in the mountains or a picnic at the beach with your family, I want to capture your story in natural, authentic way + fun way.

Based out of New Hampshire near the white mountains, I enjoy camping, road trips, fishing, cozy cabins and exploring new places.

more about me








Xo shelby

"She makes being in front of the camera natural and really makes you feel like your authentic self."

"We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have had such a stellar team of vendors for our wedding, and among them, Shelby truly stood out as a gem. We are forever grateful for the beautiful memories she helped us create and for her unwavering dedication to her craft. Choosing Shelby as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made, and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a talented, thoughtful, and genuinely caring photographer for their special day." ---- Linnie + Sean



"She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable during at shoot at home with our two toddlers. We didn't feel pressured to pose, have matching outfits or smile to get perfect photos. Because of this, our photos came out so natural and beautiful, we will cherish them forever." ---- Lucas Family

"Not only were the photos wonderful, but she made every aspect so easy and comfortable. My husband does not love getting pictures taken and Shelby made it so easy, natural and comfortable. Her vibe is very calming and natural and she makes you feel such at ease while taking your photos. Shelby is so easy and fun to work with. She captures your energy and spirit in such a unique way and her edits just make the photos even that much better. For any photo needs you have, please book Shelby. You will never regret it. I cannot stop looking at our pictures, she truly captured the events so beautifully. We have such a love for Shelby and could not be more thankful to her. We will have these pictures for the rest of our lives and we owe her so much for how wonderfully they came out. I cannot say enough great things about Shelby! She is the best!!" ---- Kara + Tate
