Archive for December, 2010

Wow, I cant believe 2010 has come to an end! I had a WONDERFUL year and I am sad to see it go. I cant thank my clients, family, and friends enough for supporting me, motivating me and helping make this a successful year for Shanna Kreza Photography. I especially thank all my photographer friends I have made over the past few years that have helped me grow and be what I am today! XOXOXO Thank you!

I have zillions of favorite moments personally in 2010 but for now I will stick with my business highlights!

The top 5 highlights of SKP this year were:
1. WPPI Vegas to meet and greet with other photographers I admire
2. My trip to NC to shoot a gorgeous wedding with my fabulous friend Rosemary
3. The boudoir marathon in Cancun, Mexico with some of my dearest friends (ok that was half a personal trip too!…ok maybe 3/4…lol)
4. Watching and photographing the birth of a BFF’s baby
5. and if I could only choose one more it would be all my newborn clients that have chosen me to capture their first year. I love love love watching them grow!

Gosh, there are so many more! I had a great year. Thank you to all who participated in it! I wish I could say I was doing something fun tonight but my family has been hit with 2 different flu viruses so we are under quarantine until further notice! 🙂

I am excited to see what 2011 holds…I already excited for a trip to Indianapolis to shoot a wedding in April, shooting a wedding in San Juan Capistrano in May, and lots of newborns and baby planners scheduled soon! I cant wait! Thank you for choosing me!!!


From our family to yours! Love you all!

I shared a sneak peek of this gorgeous couple a few weeks ago. They got married on a very rainy day so it was only fitting to do a “trash the dress” session on an equally rainy day. I didnt know what to expect but it ended up being a lot of fun and we got some great shots! We were lucky enough to have a location that had lots of archways to shoot under. In some of the pictures you cant even tell it was pouring down rain on us! It was also super dark and hazy out so I did my best to bring the color and clarity back to the pictures. Thank you to the Mr &Mrs for braving the COLD wet weather!!!

I will be posting more images on facebook so be sure to like my page to see them! 🙂 FACEBOOK

We have had a crazy amount of rain this year and being stuck inside for days is really tough! We have also been battling some illnesses so today we decided to get some fresh air and take the girls for a little walk on a nearby nature trail. I captured some really sweet pictures of my girls. Here is just one of my little 3.5 year old beauty! I cant believe she is mine!! She is such a wonderful 3 year old. 🙂

I FINALLY have a 2011 calendar! hehe I am now booking for 2011! If you book a FULL session in January or February you will receive $50 off during my winter sale!

Can you believe we have to start thinking about Valentines Day already??? Last January I held Valentine 15 minute mini sessions that were a big hit so I thought I would offer them again this year! The Valentine mini session will be held in studio or a nearby outdoor location. There are 6 openings and $50 will hold your spot. There will be 2 packages to choose from and each package will contain 50 Valentine cards (wallet size). Your child will have the most unique and adorable valentine cards to hand out at school! They are perfect for attaching to cookies, bags of treats or even a sucker.

Here are some card examples:

This is a special post for my sweet baby that turned TWO this month! She loves animals so much that we planned the perfect farm animal party! It was hard to be a host as well as photographing the event but I did manage to get a few shots of the adorable little birthday girl!
