Hi everyone! I'm Steph. Sorry for my late review. Happy New Year to all! I have purchased two (2) SALE Greeting Card Set of 6. I reordered because Shelly's work is superb! The images are better in person! And they're breathtaking upon viewing her shop too. Her lens is truly inspired. I find myself gently crying when I spend a parcel of time viewing the shop. Don't miss the oppurtunity to bring these art prints home. You will be more than pleased with the image and the quality of Shelly's work. Her love for creation comes shining through every time. Please enjoy today for every day is a gift. Thank you for reading my review. It was my pleasure to post for everyone. with love from Stephanie on Long Island ~

Shelly's photography is GORGEOUS! I ordered a note card from her and loved it so much that I came back and ordered a 16 X 20 print. I couldn't be more pleased with it. Thank you, Shelly!

Hi! I’m a nature, landscape and macro photographer and photoblogger based in the beautiful city of Victoria on the Pacific Coast of Canada. There is so much that inspires my lens here - ocean, mountains, sunrises, tall mossy forests, beautiful gardens, and great homegrown produce. I love all of it, and it never gets old. I opened up the An Inspired Lens Etsy shop to share my images with you as fine art prints, greeting cards, and calendars.

Right now I’m a one woman show in running my home business while my husband cheers me on. I’ve had to learn to do all the admin and marketing work myself. I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to make a business out of doing what I most love - although selling art is not for the faint hearted! Essentially what keeps me going is the desire to let my images speak to you – to say whatever you may need to hear today. I trust that they will bring you life, joy, beauty, hope, wonder, challenge, contemplation, encouragement, and inspiration.

You can keep up with what is currently inspiring me at my photoblog here:

Welcome to An Inspired Lens ~ the photographic art shop for Shelly Wason Photography. You are sure to find something you love here!

All images in my shop are available as a print (any size), canvas (any size), or greeting card.
I want to make unique nature art more accessible for people and so I make a line of greeting cards that are perfect to give on any occasion. My goal is to make each card as beautiful as possible - which includes printing the photos on metallic paper. I also like to add an original handcrafted touch, so I personally emboss each card by hand.

I package each purchase myself to ensure it reaches you in pristine condition, while keeping costs as low as possible.
