Adventures

for the joyful + whimsical ↞

meet my other half

Joyful photographer + former pink hater. Colorado native obsessed with creating more, worrying less, and sharing meals around the table. My most joyful moments are spent drinking coffee with my husband, listening to my baby girl laugh, and, of course, taking photographs.

about ↞

I'm Shelby Gloudemans

hey friend

i'm dying to know more!

Besides being married and raising our daughter, our favorite things in life include playing music together, eating Thai food, and savoring mountain vistas. If Justin could consume ten cups of (good) coffee a day, he probably would. 

We're pumped to get to preserve love through photographs. We hope that generations to come will never see just an image, but will instead discover moments filled with joy and a legacy of love. 

about ↞

College sweethearts

Shelby + Justin

Life is too short not to live passionately.

Magic can be found in the little moments,
if only we have eyes to see it. 

There is always a reason to be filled with joy!

And we suspect...
We will probably be mountain hermits
one day. Check back in thirty years.

Still here?

let's connect!

We believe...
