ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Shalonda is the face and camera behind Chubby Cheek Photography. She is a nationally published child photographer based out of Houston Texas, where she is drowning in glitter and princess dresses with her two daughters (affectionately referred to as the cheeks girls) and the love of her life (daddy cheeks). Her shooting style focuses on the magic of childhood and finding the unique sparkle within each child. She allows REAL life to inspire her and shape her journey as a photographer, always recognizing that the little moments do mean the most (even when it means stepping on a Barbie shoe before she has had her coffee).
