After eight years as a successful wedding and portrait photographer, Shay felt her passion and creativity beginning to wane. In 2013, a light bulb moment in Homegoods convinced her to make the almost overnight decision: Jump head first into the unknown world of commercial styling and product photography. She’s never looked back. Her commercial clients span the globe (brands like Sugarfina, Pure Fiji, Truffle bags and Simplified Planner to name a few). However, she’s most known for kickstarting the “styled stock” industry with the SC Stockshop, the first styled stock shop of its kind back in 2014. Now creative brands everywhere use her styled stock imagery membership @SocialSquares to build their brand’s visual presence online. She has been married for 13 years to her best friend and fitting counterpart, Graham. Together, they have two little girls and call sunny Tampa, Florida their home.
