About Us

Imagine a place where everything is seen through the eyes of a child, a place filled with fun and adventure, imagination and pretend..."That's Heart's Desire Photography". Our studio is located in a quaint little community about 8 miles south of Ashland, Alabama. However, in this little place, we do everything BIG! Our studio is about 3500 sq ft filled full of exquisite fine art backdrops plus any prop you could imagine. We have plenty of room to roam where we do environmental portraits including a couple of old barns and even have a caboose on the studio grounds. But our main goal is to capture each subject in a way that brings FOCUS to the individual person capturing not only their looks, but their personality. You may enter our studio as a stranger, but you will leave as our friend. 

Shauna Denney is the portrait artist. She has over 20 years experience as a photographer. She is a member of The Professional Photographers of America, has been President of the Professional Photographers of Mississippi & Alabama, and is also a past President of the Cheaha Professional Photographers Society. She has received many awards through the years from the beautiful portraits she has created, but she says her greatest reward is to see the smiles and happy tears on the faces of her clients when they view their own images.

This journey in our photography career would not have been possible without the amazing staff at Heart's Desire. If you are looking for a place to get pictures on a disk or to go all alone to a website to order some pictures, this is not the place for you. We are a full service Portrait PRINT studio with a helpful staff that can not be surpassed for excellent customer service.

We look forward to opening up our "Hearts" to accommodate your portrait needs.
