"I absolutely loved shooting with you! I have never been in front of a camera before and you made me feel so comfortable! I couldn’t have been happier with the locations you recommended and the pictures you edited. And you did it all in a timely manner and on top of it all offered to get me breakfast! Haha. I can honestly say I had a great time shooting with you and look forward to our next session!"

"Billie Shaye is an amazing photographer, we began using her when we became foster parents. When we became pregnant I knew I would always use Billie Shaye to document our pregnancy and our daughter’s life. Her talent is amazing, she knows exactly what each of her clients love and incorporates those into the photos. Not only is she an amazing photographer but an awesome friend!"
"We met Billie-Shaye in 2014 when we were shopping for a photographer for our son’s newborn pictures. At the time I didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of a stranger in the delivery room so we opted for maternity pictures as part of our MaeB Baby package. They were perfect. Billie-Shaye captured our relationship in a way I couldn’t have imagined. Jake is now two, and has been photographed by Billie-Shaye Style 14 times. Billie-Shaye has captured so many special moments for my family. We have done milestone sessions, holiday and seasonal minis, beach pictures, birthday parties and birth stories. Yes, you read that right, birth stories! When my second son was born, Billie-Shaye stayed by my side for over 12 hours of labor. She even came back the next day to capture Jake meeting his brother for the first time. This woman is more than a photographer, she is family. You can feel the love she has for her clients when you look through the images she captures. I have laughed, cried, and rejoiced with Billie-Shaye. She doesn’t take pictures, she makes memories standstill."

"Not sure where to even start with my experience with Billie Shaye style. First & foremost I was obsessed with her work before I even had her shoot any sessions for me. By the grace of God, she happened to be in Destin the same week I was getting married. [it was God sent for her to be a part of our life] There was no question whether I would hire her or not. She has done many shoots for me in less than two years; engagement, wedding, boudoir, maternity, birth story & a newborn session. I have been more than happy with every single shoot. Over the short amount of time that I have used her as my photographer, I have seen her grow professionally with the business, & artistically with the sessions & editing process. She has continued to learn new techniques that have allowed for a quicker turn around time on sessions. She is always doing something to improve herself & her business which is something I appreciate in my photographer. She is always brining something new to the table. Billie is friendly & professional all at once. Through using her as our photographer, my family has found a friend & we are very appreciative of her hard, dedicated & immaculate work."

"My fiancé and I met with Billie Shaye about photographing our wedding in 2018. She was awesome! I know it will be a stressful day but she reassured us she was there to do everything in her power to make it the least stressful. We are so excited to have her take our engagement pictures as well as capture our big day and couldn’t ask for a more laid back, awesome photographer that goes above and beyond."

"I LOVE LOVE the pictures! When we moved here three years ago I started the search for photographer among other things. I saw a lot of good pictures but I like different. I then started to follow Billie-Shaye on Facebook and realized she had visions outside of the box, I knew I wanted her to take our pictures, but then we found out we were pregnant and I knew she offered a Mae B Baby club. Once I signed up for that (keep in mind it was march and the baby was due in October) I started to send her my ideas. She was very open to working with what I liked and the look I wanted for our pictures. When it finally came time to shoot my maternity session, we did it in the rain! I scheduled them as close to the due date and she was going out of town, so we had no choice. The photos I got from that shoot were beyond breathtaking! She caught the true feelings and raw emotion of my family. Our boys don’t really care to have their picture taken but Miss Billie is fun to them and in turn I got awesome photos every single time. I am so grateful to have a photographer that likes to think outside of the box and be a trend setter, not a follower! Thank you Billie-Shaye for all of the amazing photos that decorate our walls!!! You rock!"
