About Me

Hey there, I’m Shauna.  I was born, I had a childhood, I have a son, I had a career, I have a life – one that I really, really enjoy with my best friend and partner, Rachel.  I’m guessing you came to the “About” page on my site because you want to know about me. Let’s see, here’s a few words that might possibly describe me…  mother, dreamer, observer, minimalist-in-process, student, vegan, optimist, active, adventurer, cyclist, hiker, walker, animal lover, ocean lover, kayaker, standup paddler, gardener, nature lover, photographer and traveler.

I’ve lived in different cities and worked for various people and companies, and I find that my hometown of Santa Barbara is where I’m most happy.  So, that is where we call home. Technically, we are now living in Carpinteria, but close enough.

Through my photography and this site, I want to share my world with you. My hope is that something here inspires you to go out and enjoy our great outdoors.

Please enjoy the images I have shared on my site and leave comments so we can exchange ideas and get to know each other.
