My name is Sheila Skogen and I'm very happy to meet you, even if it is over the internet. I want to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself and why photography is such a passion of mine.
I'll begin by telling you that, in my daily life, I play a lot of roles. I'm a mother, sister, friend, and admittedly, a lover of purses. To this day, though, it must be said that one of my greatest passions is photography.
I have always been a shutterbug, ever since junior high. I didn't realize until later in life that I truly had a hidden talent. I can take a mean photo when the planets and stars are aligned. When I finished my Project 365 four years ago, I realized then that it was my calling. My true passion lies in nature, landscapes, birds, still life or inanimate objects. I could sit for hours watching a Snowy Owl in freezing temps or capturing the beautiful color of fall. I gradually moved into portraiture and specialize in high school seniors. I also love to shoot families, BFF, tweens and almost everything in between.
Today, I'm proud to say that I've had many human beings step in front of my lens. Unlike some photographers, though, I take a more stylized approach to my photography. That means I think things through from start to finish, from head to toe, from foreground to background.
I hope that from this brief introduction of myself, you understand that I am not just a woman who takes random pictures. I am a photographer. And I don't just click the shutter button on my camera -- I capture the inner and outer essence of whomever is standing on the other side of my lens.
Thank you for stopping by and stop back often! I am always adding new content!
