She and her husband Paul met in Lindale at church, married at 18, and started having babies. They have 4 kids (so far), Kidron (7), Kyra (5), Noriah (3), and Shaphirah (the baby) that bring lots of messes, chaos, and laughs to their lives. She grew up in Arlington, TX and then her family moved to a 32 acre farm in East Texas the summer she turned 12 with her 10 younger siblings. Animals, dirt, and lots of kids is normal life to her, with lots of noise! She loves to talk, paint anything with turquoise chalk paint, and inspire moms who are working from home. She has loved taking pictures since she was a little girl, and when she's not chasing her own toddlers, she's photographing brand new babies, toddlers, and their families over at www.shanna-kaye.com.
