I’m Essie Shaw, and I specialize in creating beautiful images of female identifying persons of all shapes, sizes, colors, and abilities.

Along with shooting photos of clients in a one-on-one setting, I host workshops and retreats called “The exist project”. The project is centered around body positivity, sex education, and healthy nutrition practices with the purpose of teaching women to exist in photographs and to value and embrace their bodies.

I started my career behind the camera in 2012 as I sat in front of a computer studying Film and Media arts at the University of Utah. As I went through my bachelor’s degree program I discovered my passion for creative expression through art, photography, and film. This path has led me to make the amazing connections with some incredible people. I hope you’ll be one of those people. Drop your e-mail below for more information about a boudoir session with me.


Let’s create together soon!
