Imagine a place where you can go for an experience, filled with fun, laughter, and adventure. A place where people come together to capture the special bond that makes a family. A place where the dreams of childhood can become a moment preserved in time to be treasured even when those precious years have passed. "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.
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 also offer a beautiful array of framing options.
We look forward to opening up our "Hearts" to accommodate your portrait needs.
Hello! Im Shauna
I am the portrait artist at Heart's Desire and have been capturing precious memories for over 20 years. I am a member of The Professional Photographers of America, past President of the Professional Photographers of Mississippi & Alabama, past board member of the Southeastern Professional Photographers Association, and past President of the Cheaha Professional Photographers Society.
To me, photography is more than just taking a picture. It's about capturing a moment in time, showcasing a person's true self. Although my portraits have received many awards throughout the years; my greatest reward is being able to see the smiles and happy tears on the faces of my clients when they view their own images.
