In her humble opinion, “I especially love taking pictures of moments that are totally unscripted or unplanned!” Shaw captures moments like no other; she has a unique perspective that always goes further than just showing people how you see a scene.
For Toni, photography also lets her express herself—her opinions and beliefs. Shaw shows us this by choosing what she photographs, and how she represents it.

One can gather a great sense of what a photographer is like as a person by looking at their body of work. Shaw knows that this is a great part of photography and is absolutely fascinating as a viewer, and fulfilling as a shooter. For Shaw Photography is a fantastic story-telling medium as well. Whether she is telling a story with one image, a sequence, a series, or an entire portfolio, the possibilities are endless she admits.
