Natural Talent

I have to take a moment and brag on a very special, young, girl who I love dearly. A girl who has an amazing eye for photography. A girl who has such a natural and spectacular talent yet doesn't quite see how much potential she has. 

This 16 year old girl is my little sister, Shayna. Sure, I may be a little biased since she's my sister, but I truly think she has a talent that needs to be known! I really want to see her start a website or blog specifically for her photography and pursue it more. Maybe even create a Blurb book with all of her pictures. It's something that she says she loves to do and I desperately want to see her potential just shine!

She just got a very nice camera a couple of months ago and it seems like she's already mastered it!

I have one of her pictures set as my background and every time I see it I want to show it to everyone! It looks very professional and I can totally see this picture, and all of her pictures, on a postcard or greeting card. Even as a print on canvas or something.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures that she's taken. It's so hard to narrow down my favorites. She has many more! (you can click on the photo for a larger view)

Can you see why I'm so proud of this girl?! She has an amazing talent and I hope to talk her into taking it further =) If you have a chance, leave her a comment below -- I'm sure she'd appreciate it!


  1. Wow, these are amazing! Great job, Shayna!

  2. Go for it!! Love the photos! Such a rewarding career too!

  3. One of the things I like about the invention of digital technology is that people who in the past would not have had much of a chance to discover their talent with photography are now able to without the expensive costs...I do love the look of that first photo you show

  4. Here's my suggestion! Get yourself into a community college photo class PRONTO. You've got raw talent, would be able to take that so many places with a class or two. (I actually suggest photoshop and maybe a lighting class.) Since you've got the base, you can only go up, way, way UP!

  5. Great pictures Shayna!! If you ever want to come this way we have some great places to take pictures and I would love to be your tour guide. Keep on keeping on.
