My motto: "In the book of life, the  answers aren't always in the back!" -Charles Shultz

A Peek Into My Life:
*I make time stand still.
*I'm Shana Pyburn.
*My style is modern, timeless, simple...
*I am photographer, a musician (Piano player), a wife, a sister, and friend.
*I believe in love at first sight. My 4-year marriage is my proof.
*My world revolves around photography, God, my husband, my family, and music. But not necessarily in that order.
*You can get me to do anything with the promise of a cupcake. Throw in some Apple juice and I’ll sing for you! :)
*I’m a jeans & hoodie kind of girl. Add a pair of Chucks & I’m set for life. But I promise not to show up to your wedding like that.
*I’m green. Not the color… the movement! Lol.  Although it would be interesting if a green photographer showed up to your shoot.
*I married a Southerner. When in the South, I’m homesick for my California. And vice-versa.
*Yes, My last name is Pyburn. My name is my husband’s fault. But I still laugh when his Battles call me Mrs. Pybreezy
*I will cry at your wedding.

My motto(s): "Just one more..."
No matter what comes across me in life that seems hard, if I tell myself just one more I know that I will be further then where I was or where I could have been .

Time Tested Beauty Tips:
*I like to tell ladies, if your not big on false lashes, to clean an old mascara brush and apply baby powder to your lashes after your first coat. Always move your mascara wand from left to right so that it opens up your lashes. Then after you apply the mascara and baby powder apply another coat of mascara. Focus on the ends a bit but your lashes will appear longer!
*Please protect that sexy hair with leave in conditioner! 
*Always, always, always use heat spray when using kind of hot tool!!!
