I'm shalina. Very nice to meet you & thank you for stopping by!


I live in the gorgeous pacific northwest amid a foresty, mossy backdrop that continues to take my breath away every day. I'm married to a pretty rad dude, and am a mother to the cutest little ladies and a rowdy yellow lab.  Family is a pretty big deal to us.  We live for the weekends and adventuring.  Traveling is in my blood, especially to far-away lands.  We brew our own beer and frequent all of the local watering holes.  Growing up in Minnesota, i am partial to anything midwest.  Hiking is fun.  Juicy, ripe mangoes are my weakness.  Meeting new people and creating long lasting relationships are what make me happy.


Tribe by the Trees is a little look into our daily happenings.  as the days speed by, it is a great way for me to document all of the things i love most: family, motherhood, photography, & the small things in everyday life that inspire.

I also offer photography services (family, maternity, newborn, weddings...you name it!)  check out my photog page for more details if you are interested in booking a shoot.

Very excited you have landed here, take a look around, and don't be shy!  Reach out with any questions/comments (but first check out the FAQs below!).
