I’m the not-green one in this photo. →

People seem to like me because I am polite, and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

I picked up photography a little over 12 years ago, and have been in love ever since. I really enjoy learning and practicing as many styles of photography as I can, but my specialties lie in candid portraiture (both humans and dogs), travel and long-exposure photography.

I’m currently living in Southern New Jersey, but exploring as much of the world as possible in my free time. I’ve been lucky enough to take what some would call ‘a buttload’ of trips over the last year and a half (check out my Journal and follow @sheaskis on Instagram to keep up with my adventures) and cannot wait to continue traveling the globe.

I recently bought a DJI Mavic Pro drone, and I’m excited to start adding video and additional forms of creativity to my daily routine.

Aside from photography, I’m a nerd for Social Media and all things creative. I’m a lover of Photoshop and Lightroom, and great with WordPress. If you’d like to see more of my skills, keep scrollin’…

SPECIALTIES

Specialties.

I WAS CREATED TO CREATE.

01. PHOTOGRAPHY.

My weapon of choice is the Canon 5D Mark III coupled with Canon’s 50mm L-Series. I also love shooting with my Fuji Istax Mini 8 – still something really cool about holding a ‘polaroid’ in your hand.

02. DIGITAL MARKETING.

I currently work full-time as a Social Media Manager/Digital Content Designer at the Delaware Valley Floral Group in Sewell, NJ. I handle everything from photography, to social media, to WordPress web design and blogging.

03. DESIGN.

I have my Associates of Art in Graphic Design, and practice these skills on a daily basis. I consistently use programs in the Adobe Creative Suite, and am currently learning both Sketch and InVision.

Skills

Skills.

NEVER HALF-ASS TWO THINGS.
WHOLE-ASS ONE THING.

I have over 12 years of photography experience, coupled with 7+ years of creative content experience. I am constantly bettering myself in both of these areas with online tutorials, webinars, and classes. I currently work full time, and pick up freelance photography/creative jobs on the weekends and in my spare time.

Passions

Passions.

OBSESSED IS A WORD THE LAZY USE TO DESCRIBE THE DEDICATED.

I’m a TV and movie fanatic, not to be confused with the Phanatic – remember, I’m the not-green one in that photo. I played sports my entire life, mainly softball and soccer, and while I’m currently not involved in any leagues, I do get to enjoy baseball by working a freelance gig with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Instagram is my favorite social media outlet, and every day I take time to stumble upon photographers and other artists who are killin’ it.

Finally, I love doing what I can to help children in need, especially charities focused on foster children. Each Christmas I ‘adopt’ wish-lists from a really great organization called Bianca’s Kids. I also love supporting Together We Rise as much as possible. I encourage you to check these places out! If you know of any charities similar to these that are looking for photography/social media help, please e-mail me.

ME, MY CAMERA, AND 8 EXTRA LEGS.

The more I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.

These two are my best friends, and often the subject of my projects. Nola is an AKC Good Citizen, and waiting to take her therapy test to be able to visit hospitals and schools. Goose is still a puppy, so he’s currently in training and hoping to follow in the same paw prints as Nola.

Nola

She’s a mutt: Half adorable. Half amazing.

Goose

He’s not a bird. Or a plane. He’s a dog.

LET’S TALK.

Preferably over pizza and beer, but email works, too.
