about us

Hi, I'm Shawnelle! Can you tell that I love Puglia? After years of world travel, I decided I wanted to live abroad and I chose Puglia (the heel of the boot in southern Italy) as my first place living abroad. Two years later, I have dual citizenship, and I feel like I have found my true home. 

Puglia is a place of magic for me and I want to share it with you. Imagine a place with centuries worth of stunning architecture, breathtaking countryside alive with orchards, flowers, and dreamy handcrafted rock walls, abound with the glorious, shining food.

Envision farmland stretching over miles of earth spanning to the emerald and teal waters of the Adriatic Sea where swimming feels like a warm salt bath and fresh fish and pink wine are sold from the beach shack nearby. Are you in love yet?

I hope my photos portray the passion I feel for this region of Italy. And, I hope you will consider traveling hear one day. Please check out my blog to learn more!




Our Services


Food Photography

I feel like the luckiest person in the world creating beautiful images of the amazing, farm to table food made from scratch in the Puglia region - and I get to eat it!

My goal is to showcase your food in the most appealing way by telling your personal story through the images I create. I work with you to design a custom photo shoot of your food, covering all the details including getting to know you, finding a location, styling, and finally shooting.
