Shawnalee Anderton is a photographer based in Portland OR, originally from way up North in Canada...Yes, it gets cold up there.

Indeed, I learned a lot living in Northern B.C. Like, you have to plug in your car when it gets below -30C (-20F). Manners are a good thing (those darn friendly Canadians!). Nature is more important than anything else. But enough about the North. I am now here in Portland and it has a lot to offer! So far no plugging the car in! Also, the food trucks here rock!

My Studio

I love to be outside in the fresh air & natural light. Which is why, when you come to me for a portrait session, it is not a typical portrait studio. My place of choice to shoot is my home based semi-outdoor studio space. It’s brings together the indoors & outdoors…It’s a creative space & allows me seamless flexibility... blending natural light with studio light… the ability to easily create customized sets & backdrops... I also find that my clients relax in the casual setting which is very important. It is not unusual to see a chicken somewhere nearby! How Portland is that?


My client asked to hold one of our chickens.

It turned out to become one of her favourite portraits!

Going on location is also possible

If you have a place you love such as a room in your home or a beautiful open field...I'm good to go!

I want you to experience a shoot that you will never forget...

One of being pampered and laughter while creating the most beautiful portraits you have ever seen of yourself & your loved ones.

And don't forget to plan a night out after! We are not responsible for the awesome time you will have while your are out looking and feeling amazing!
