My name is Shyla Brown aka Shy. I am a Photographer and Mother of 5 awesome kids! Colton (12) Nathan (10) Asher (7) and my twinsies Declan and Maisie (1)    I have a wonderful husband that I have been with since we were 20 and we are actually celebrating our 12th Wedding anniversary in June 2024!  I have 30 nieces and nephews that I absolutely adore!! I have 2 wonderful parents that are always there for me and rooting for me to succeed and helping out in any way they can. I have 2 sisters and 2 brothers, Sharon, Sammy, Johnny and Tommy (Angel brother) who let me steal their kids to model for me whenever I want! And I can't forget my amazing in laws. Chantal, Benjamin, Melissa, Craig, Kenny, Chadd and Olivia. 


WHat's my specialty?

I live in Brookfield Wisconsin with my husband and kids but I do travel all throughout Wisconsin! Also my studio is located in Downtown Waukesha!

Children! I have so many nieces and nephews and I just love being around them! I love dealing with Children and working to make them trust me and feel comfortable to show me their real selves! Another specialty is my themed Princess Sessions!

I have always loved photography, but the one thing that really pushed me into it was my brother Tommy. Tommy had just turned 22 when he passed away due to a drunk driver on Thanksgiving night in 2009 t-boning his truck. He passed away with our best friend Jeremy who had just turned 19 the month prior. I became obsessed with all photographs of both of them and around that time their really was not much digital photography. We had all printed photos and my first camera was film and we didn't have the greatest cameras on our phones. It made me sad that I did not have as many photographs of him as I would have loved. It became my mission to capture everything, I wanted to make sure all the special moments in our lives were fully documented. I slowly started working with non family members and here I am, documenting hundreds of families. You truly never know when that last moment will be with your special loved ones and I want to make sure that you have moments captured that can last forever. You never know when photos are the only things you have left of a loved one.
