Shantina happily calls Quadra Island home with two little humans, a Great Pyrenees dog, goats, ducks, bunnies, cats, and a flock of chickens—as well as the most wonderful and supportive partner who has been encouraging and pushing her to follow her dreams.

Shantina captures love in all its beautiful forms. She loves how contagious a smile or laugh can be—how every single soul has a different story and something inspirational to offer. She loves connecting with nature, specializing in outdoor empowerment sessions and enjoying the feeling of freedom that comes with it. Photography is more than just something Shantina is passionate about; it is stopping that very small window in time that you can never have back—a moment that you never want to forget. To make others feel something when they look through her photos is what moves her and what keeps her going.
