"I had the B E S T time today with Shelbi! She was respectful, creative, fun, and made me feel ??? perfect in my own skin (literally!) I've only seen raw images and that's MORE THAN enough to earn this review hands down! ?? seriously obsessed with every aspect of my shoot with her and I can not recommend her enough! ??"
"Where do I even start!!? Shelbi Conde your the best! I have been watching this page since the beginning! I was referred to shelbi for engagement pictures and the deal she gave us hit all the right spots! A session for boudoirs was included! I was so nervous underneath it all and I'm never nervous about stuff like this.. but the thing is.. I've gained weight 50 lbs in 3 years that I've been with my now husband.. I was horrified at how these would turn out.. how much I would hate them.. how big my stomach roll would be.. the list goes on and on.. but I must day when I got my gallery I almost cried.. i showed my husband and he took off with my phone and was like babe I need everyone of these printed out because you're so damn sexy and beautiful at the same time.. so just take it from my experience. SHE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST! MY BRIDALS BOUDIORS AND WEDDING PICS ARE THE ABSOLUTE GREATEST! Not only did I have these memories for ever now; I also gained a new life long friend! She will always be my go to now! Love you boo!! Y'all definitely need to do this at least once because we only live once right!!"
"Shelbi has taken my pictures whenever & wherever I ask. She has grown so much as a person, friend, mother, and photographer in the time that I have known her.
I have always struggled with my body image, especially now after having my daughter. She begged me to come and take pictures but I was hesitant because I knew I wouldn't like what I saw. But she knows her angles and knows exactly what she is doing. She positioned me and told me to fix my face multiple times. She didn't stop until we were both satisfied with my pictures. There is nobody else that I trust to take my pictures, except for her !! She is so talented & down to earth. She makes you feel comfortable, sexy, fierce, and yet so calm, all at once. If you've never met her before your shoot, you definitely leave with a new friend. She has the best personality and that shines through her work. She is passionate , dedicated, and head strong. She is all about getting that "perfect picture". You wont regret choosing her as your photographer! She is literally the best."
"Y 'all this is my favorite image I've seen from my shoot. Words can't express how seeing these made me feel. Like THAT IS ME. I DID THAT. shelbi helped me to feel SO CONFIDENT and comfortable in my own skin!!!! If you've been wondering about doing this, DO IT"
"I had a child about two years ago... Before him I was 115 pounds. Flat stomach, no stretch marks. Now two years later, I am 145. I know that doesn't seem like a lot to some people, but I have struggled with it. UNTIL, these pictures. Every time I try to put myself down when I put on my pants and barely get them buttoned I think about these, or I grab that little black book and I can FINALLY see what my husband see. I have finally stopped tearing myself apart. THANK YOU Shelbi. You are AMAZING. You have finally gave me the confidence I have needed for so long... Girls that are watching these post, we are serious. These are life-changing in ways you would NOT believe. Do it. Be that bad bitch you wanna be!!"
"YALL, BOOKING WITH SHELBI IS LITERALLY THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO!!! ???? SHE IS LITERALLY SO DOWN TO EARTH & COOL, MAKES YOU FEEL SO COMFORTABLE & IT WAS SUCH A CONFIDENCE BOOSTER TO SEE MY PICTURES!!! ??♀️ I'M TELLING YOU IT WAS THE BEST THING I COULD'VE DONE & I HAVE NO REGRETS!!! ?? BOOOOOK HERRRR ?"
"In January I did a mini with Shelbi and was going to surprise my boyfriend, now ex, with an album for Valentine's Day. During my shoot I asked her to do bare minimal editing bc I wanted to see myself the way that he saw me. I wanted to see the cellulite on my legs and butt. I wanted to see the extra weight and stretch marks from carrying my beautiful baby girl. When I saw the pictures I instantly fell in love. This past week the guy I was dating and I broke up. So of course you know how it is after a break up. You start wondering where you went wrong. Why things didn't work out. What changed. Was it my body, bc I've gained weight during this relationship. You know, the normal things that go through our heads when your heart is shattered. As I'm thinking some of those thoughts I came across my pictures. I look at them and instantly I was reminded of the bad ass, smoking hot momma that I am. I NEVER thought that looking at these pictures would make my heart hurt a little less. But as I'm looking at them, I see this beautiful woman who has been through so much in the past several years. Someone who has survived being in an abusive relationship. Becoming a single mother. Raising a beautiful princess alone. Falling in love and having her heart shattered. But somehow manages to stand tall while smiling and pushing through the roughest days. I NEVER in a million years thought that I would look back at these pictures and see just how strong that I have become. So Shelbi, thank you for more than just making me feel confident and comfortable during my session. Thank you for capturing the real me! I will Be eternally thankful for them and you! I love you. ❤️"
"Shelbi thank you for making me feel confident again. I went to my shoot feeling nervous and was really down on myself bc I couldn't find an outfit that I felt that I looked good in. If you cant tell I have large boobs lol. Shelbi handed me this outfit to try on and while it didn't fit exactly like I wanted it to, it looked amazing. As the shoot went on I got more comfortable bc of how shelbi was so uplifting!!!
For those of you ladies that feel the urge to do this but are nervous, just do it bc you wont regret it. Again thank you shelbi for making me feel amazing about myself again."
"I just left from my session with Shelbi...and when I say she had me up in my feelings, that's no lie! She is AMAZING at what she does and brought me to tears!!!! Thanks Shelbi...every woman needs someone like you in their life at least once!"
"Absolutely loved my first boudoir session with shelbi! She is so uplifting and fun to be around! I did not once feel embarrassed or ashamed nor did i feel shy! I would recommend her to anyone who is self conscious about their body, have had babies, or ladies who just want to have fun and feel good about them self!"
"SERIOUSLY STUNNED, SHELBI JUST SENT MY PROOFS AND I'M BEYOND IMPRESSED, AND EXCITED AND SO IS MY HUSBAND! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING SHELBI CONDE ?♥️ AND CRYSTAL PIERCE FOR MY HAIR AND MAKE UP"
"Shelbi is one of those who you don't forget about. Her ability to stand out amongst other photographers is beyond words. She brings a rawness and a creative edge to every picture (especially in boudoir) that is unmatched. Many artists have drive and talent, no doubt. But in my honest opinion.... I've yet to see anyone that offers the Shelbi Conde experience. Without effort, she makes you discover beauty within yourself. Her undying passion for what she does, shines through her pictures. She tells stories with them and somehow captures exactly what you would want to represent yourself as her model. She's real, thoughtful, talented, and just a lovely human being all around...with a gift that can't go unnoticed. I wouldn't recommend anyone else."
"My experience with Shelbi was amazing to say the least!! It was my very first time doing a boudoir session so I was a bit nervous, was very self conscious, and just knew it was going to be so awkward! But, it wasn't at all. Shelbi was so amazing. She made me feel completely comfortable, we laughed and had fun! And my photos were the absolute BEST!! Very talented and unique photographer. I'll never use anyone else."
My experience with Shelbi was just that... a real experience! One of my new year resolutions for 2019 was to work on my confidence. I've struggled with it always, as most of us do, but sometimes it can limit us in life so much on bad days! This is so far out of my comfort zone so it was a perfectly terrifying challenge for myself ? I met Shelbi through a good friend and saw how talented she was... and through finding out she did these insanely beautiful boudoir shoots I booked it immediately without even thinking twice (so I didn't give myself a chance to back out ??♀️). My literal nightmare in thought because I pretty much hate all photos of myself but the actual shoot was a dream. Shelbi is funny, keeps it light hearted and empowers you throughout the entire process. She is literally superwoman. I was nervous about being so exposed not only in front of a camera but also in front of another woman, but she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed I forgot I was so anxious immediately upon walking in the studio. She's also super creative and tells you how to pose if you don't know what you're doing (me!) and knows what looks good. Also, my photos turned out BOMB. Her style of photography is so beautiful. I loved them all which is something I never thought I'd say. This challenge was just for me; to go back and look at on days where I just don't feel my best and think "Dang, that's me?!" And "I did that?!" Book her, you won't regret it ladies!
"My experience with Shelbi Conde was the best I had been watching her page for about 2 3 months and really wanted to do it but knew i never would feel comfortable enough to let someone see me like that well I convinced my bestfriend to also sign up with me shelbi with open arms is down for us to come together so day of I went back and forth on if I should even go that I'm a mom of 4 I need to be home doing mom things not trying to feel sexy...well I went and from the moment I walked in I felt like jenny and not mom jenny and that's what shelbi did for me she made me realize I can still be both she also let me and my bff take a few shots together which means so much to me cause not only was I able to smile and feel pretty I had my bff right by my side and you captured the best moments of that....I will always be in your corner cheering you on shelbi your amazing at what you do and your work speaks for itself."
"GETTING PICTURES WITH SHELBI WAS ONE OF THE BEST EXPERIENCES I'VE EVER HAD. SHE MADE ME FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH MYSELF! SHE HAS SO MANY ADORABLE OUTFITS THAT FIT GREAT AND WERE ALL CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED AND SHE HAD SO MANY AWESOME IDEAS FOR POSES. I HAVE NEVER FELT SO BEAUTIFUL AS I DID TAKING THESE BUT THE LAST TIME I DID WAS ALSO WITH SHELBI WHEN SHE DID MY MATERNITY PHOTOS. SHE IS SO TALENTED AND SUCH A GREAT PERSON. LADIES IT'S WORTH IT, JUST GO FOR IT AND GET THESE PICTURES TAKEN!!!"
"My experience with Shelbi Conde was absolutely incredible! I was a nervous wreck the moment I got to her studio. She kept reassuring me that everything was going to be ok and that we would rock the shoot. I'm a mother of 2 divorced and a life time of insecurities. I hate how my body looked and how I felt about myself. Shelbi was absolutely amazing and helped me open up. I walked in a mess and walked out feeling amazing about myself. I highly recommend doing a shoot with shelbi whether you're insecure or just don't think you can do it. She will help you loosen up and have fun with you."
