I am Shalista and I am the owner of Shalista Beauty + Boudoir, the premier boudoir studio in Sioux Falls and the southeastern South Dakota region. I live for helping every women feel beautiful, worthy and appreciated through boudoir photography. 

Most days you'll find me at the studio, with people just like you! When I am not there, I am likely running one of my kids to some activity somewhere. People keep telling me I'll miss that when they are grown, but in the meantime I guzzle coffee and make sure to use extra strength concealer on my under-eye bags. Can you relate?

I've been a photographer for 16 years, which both seems like a lifetime and also feels like I am brand new. I am learning every day. Moral of the story, I have been around awhile and have a ton of experience. I know how to take good pictures each and every time, so you are in great hands when you step in front of my camera. A session with me will transform your thinking. It will empower you to feel confident and beautiful and love yourself as you are right now. I know you are nervous, but I take care of all the hard stuff. You get to have all the fun! (Ok, I have fun too!)

I am a distinguished member of the Association for International Boudoir Photographers, a member of the Professional Photographers of Association of America (PPA) and Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI). 

I have been married to the love of my life for 16 years, we have four crazy kids, a dog and a cat. I love all things Disney, collect massive amounts of makeup, and I love to cook.
