Tutus, Tonka trucks, laughter and love—whatever your family is all about, Carli Felix, owner of Shutterlove Studio and Boutique, wants to capture the reality of your beautifully unique family. Through her photography, Carli hopes to preserve life’s moments by doing away with the stiff clothes and rehearsed poses of traditional photography. “Those just aren’t real,” she says.
“Photos should reflect [a] family’s personality and relationship together,” Felix says of her passion. “We strive to have the photos really show who you are. We like to let newborns sleep, toddlers pick their own outfits for part of the session (even if it doesn’t match). We will guide you into the right starting pose. We really like you to interact as a family, snuggle together, laugh and have fun!”
Supporting local artists
When she’s not making memories, Carli is supporting local artists. With a passion for her community as well as photography, she loves the idea of shopping locally and supports local talent by selling handmade items in her studio such as cloth diapers, nursery artwork, pacifier clips and designer clothes. She is always looking for new and fun items to offer for sale, and she encourages local artists to approach her with their ideas. The Shutterlove Boutique opened with studio in the spring of 2012.
“I really do think I have the best job in the world,” says Felix. “I love that I get to provide my clients with a cherished memory…[and] that people can stop in the boutique and find a unique gift while also helping support someone locally.” The concept behind Shutterlove Studio may be new, but the results—a memory worth a thousand words—will be timeless.
