Sheryl Bale, Photographer/Co-host





​I grew up in Washington, in a small town outside Olympia.
I moved to Southern California about three years ago. I love waking up to the beautiful California weather but my heart is with the evergreen state of Washington.

Three things about me:
I have an Old English Sheep Dog named Finnegan
I love art
I love coffee or maybe just caffeine.

Why be a photographer?
​I get to bring happiness and love to people everyday with my art. I am grateful in being able to do what I love.
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”


Heather J. Keys, Social Media | Co-HOST





I am often found using both natural light and professional portable studio lighting to capture the intimate moments my clients have. I take pride in capturing the pure joy, peace, and fulfillment of partnership and parenthood that is often lost in the chaotic daily life through provoking lifestyle portraits.

​​I pride myself in being a passionate wedding photographer and photojournalist. I am also a Social Media Marketing consultant for small business entrepreneurs and large corporations as well as a teacher/speaker in the photography industry.

Over the past few years I have built a steady base of followers on both Facebook and Instagram for not only my personal brand but for corporations as well. It has really helped me branch out as an entrepreneur and it has helped me connect my content with my potential clients.


"Great social media doesn't just happen, but it doesn’t need to be scary or overwhelming,

we will chat about what it takes behind the scenes to make it rock!"
