PHOTOGRAPHER SHEENA GALLEGOS
I am a photographer in Las Vegas, Nevada who specializes in newborn portraiture. I have spent the last 4 to 5 years learning everything I could about photography, lighting, camera settings, post-processing techniques and most importantly, how to safely pose your newborn. Also, I continue to educate myself and stay up-to-date with new photography trends to elevate my own style and composition so that I may always provide my clients with a classic and timeless result.
My personal life consists of chasing my 2 boys around, ages 1 and 4, and trying to keep their toys off the floor (I often fail at a that by the end of the day) and yelling at my teenager to do the dishes and finish her homework. In my spare time, if I have any, I enjoy crafting, doing DIY projects around the house, sewing, antique shopping and watching HGTV. I frequently have several unfinished projected scattered around my home. I’m told that messes equate to the mind of a genius, so I’ll go with that!
Photography is my creative outlet. Newborn photography, specifically, calms and quiets my soul when my daily life is hectic and agitating. Life is all about balance and this is what balances me. During my newborn sessions, you will walk in to find tranquil music in the background and white noise or rain in the foreground. I started playing it for the babies but now, I rather enjoy the meditative state it puts my mind in, so I can clearly focus and transfer calm energy to the baby. Clients have called me the baby whisperer.
Besides newborns, I also do family sessions, maternity and cake smashes. If I had to pick a second favorite type of session, I think I would pick my cake smashes. they are on the opposite end of the spectrum when it comes to look and feel but that pretty much sums up the first year of your baby’s life. When they come into this world, they are the main focus and our parental instincts take over so we try to keep them warm and comfy. I feel like this is shown in my photos. And for their first birthday, we make a big deal because turning 1 is a big deal, so my pictures include bright colors, decorations, cake…the works!
And though the weather in Las Vegas is very erratic, when it’s nice out, I really enjoy doing outdoor shoots. I have some awesome places that I like to go so if you don’t have anywhere in mind, not to worry, I do! I can do any of the remainder of the sessions I offer outdoors but just incase the weather is too hot, too cold, too windy or rainy, then I also have a studio.
I am a member of the International Association of Newborn Photographers and my work has been featured by them.
