Hello and thank you for taking a look around my website!  I am Sheila Clapperton.  I specialize in custom portrait photography in the Coronado and San Diego areas of Southern California.  Even though you wouldn’t know it because my accent is mostly gone, I grew up in the Deep South.  Sweet iced tea is my go-to drink even to this day.  After graduating from the University of Alabama, I married a career Navy man and have been living near an ocean and traveling the world ever since.  We’ve lived overseas twice now (in Belgium and Italy) and added two boys to our family along the way.  It is my hope that our boys grow up to love adventure and travel as much as I do.  My favorite things are family dinners out, evening strolls on the beach and seeing the world.

A session with me is completely laid back and fun.  If you reserve a family session with me, come to your session ready to spend time with your family and give your kids lots of hugs and kisses.  I typically start my sessions by getting your family together for a group photo.  From there, I branch out into more relaxed and candid shots, while still pulling you all back in for more family poses as we go through your session.  My goal is to give you a ton of variety in your session images.  When we’re at the end of our time together, I have captured the images that tell your story.  I give my clients photographs that can be held on to and treasured for many years to come.

Please contact me to set up your photography session.  I look forward to meeting you! 

Many thanks, Sheila
