Sandy Toes Studio is a family-owned photography studio, owned and operated by David & Meredith Shackelford.

David & Meredith have constantly been traveling about with cameras trying to preserve those special moments. They've both been enthusiastic about capturing that "special moment" so that it can be forever remembered.

The addition of a child to a family results in most people taking thousands of pictures. David & Meredith were no exception. Over the years, David worked on crafting that “perfect picture” to freeze that "special moment" in time. Meredith soon became involved in photography so she could capture those moments for David when he was traveling for work & could not be at home.

After friends and family saw several of the photographs that we took of our daughter, we were asked if we could do the same for them.

Based upon the reception of these photographs and the comments of those who received them, we looked within ourselves for what we could provide for others.

We took a leap of faith and upgraded our equipment to include backdrops, mobile studio lighting, and processing software. Hence, Sandy Toes Studio was created.

We continue to operate based upon the family and friends model. We
do not believe in a charging a “traditional sitting fee” and we will never charge one.

We don’t feel that you should be charged a fee for “walking in the door” with nothing to take home. Our modest session fee will be applied towards your purchase of any of our products. Currently, our session fee includes a credit to cover the cost (minus shipping) of our Bronze Portrait Package. We firmly believe that you should be able to have photographs of your family / event provided at an economical price.

Our web-site is "home-built" (David is not a web developer; so that further cost-savings can be passed on to you) and first-pass processing is done by our studio at no charge.

That being said, our photo products are of the highest quality. They are processed by a Professional Lab that was selected from many during our time in establishing our studio.

We are confident that you will be pleased with your photographs from our studio.

We look forward to serving you as your photography studio that preserves your memories forever.

Kindest Regards,

David & Meredith Shackelford
