Capture your legacy.

Entrust a professional.



Why Shirley Chic?

I am named for my grandmother, Shirley. I never got to meet her, but by all accounts she was intelligent, kind, and resourceful. I have a snapshot of her and my grandpa on their wedding day in 1942 that hangs in my studio to remind myself that the photos I create for my clients will be part of their story. 

I believe in making beautiful images, but more than that, I believe those images need to exist in a gallery somewhere other than an Instagram carousel. Printed photos leave a legacy that cannot be captured in a digital-only existence.

I'm Catelin and I'm a photographer. I work with new loves, wonderful families, and passionate entrepreneurs to help them capture and project what is most important to them.

My family enjoyed how fun and carefree the whole experience was. Doing anything with a small child and a dog can be...complicated. Catelin made it such a relaxed and easy going atmosphere that put everyone at ease. She was patient and understanding and the photos turned out amazing!

Catelin is so patient and calm and interacts so well with my kiddos. They know her by name and look forward to our sessions. Initially, I was worried about only having a large handful of photos from each session, but I love that I love every photo, don’t have to keep track of a million photos from each session to pass down through the years Thanks for loving my family through your photography talents, Catelin!
