Calgary Portrait Photographer receives Awards in International Competition.

I am very excited to share the results from my first International Image Competition with PPA (Professional Photographers of America). They were judged over the past week and the results were sent by text as they were finalized. I received three Merits and one image was accepted into the Prestigious Loan Collection! I am officially an Internationally Awarded Photographer. Here is my first merit image.





I approach every session with the same passion, putting my heart and soul into every image that I create for those who chose me for a commissioned portrait.

Calgary Portrait Photographer, Shelley Vandervelde

Ok, I've been super busy and not on my blog for too long.  When I came to create a new post I see little boxes where my images used to be....  So this is a test post to see what is happening. Images from my nieces first birthday session and her big brother who enjoyed the cake!

Calgary Child Photographer | Shelley Vandervelde

As a Calgary Photographer, I often photograph babies, toddler, children and teens. For some reason girls seem to come for portraits more often than boys.  It is a pity as boys will someday be fathers and their wives will want to show their children what their daddy looked like at their age.....
