After almost 7 years since starting Shelley Dee Photography, I have decided to rebrand!  Nothing to drastic…I am still sticking with the same theme, the same color blue and the same quatrefoil pattern.  The changes I did make  was the color,  I decided to not use green as my secondary brand color and I replaced […]

  • Svetlana Kim - Dear Shelley,

    Meeting you was a great pleasure! What a serendipity!

    It has been only a few days since we met but I kept thinking about you! I check your Facebook page daily.

    Your generosity, kindness, integrity, and attention to details reminded me my Grandmother, White Pearl. You’re much, much younger!

    I believe that it was one of the most beautiful moments which I call “serene-destinty.” Thanks to my friend, Sam Horn, who introduced me to the concept. Please visit her website at

    Wishing you all the best that life can offer! I have tremendous respect for you and your creative work, Shelley!
