Behind the Lens

Shawn Laksmi Greenberg

photographer, teacher, yogi and mother


Shawn is my first name, and Laksmi is my middle name, but ever since I was born, my family has called me by my middle name, (pronounced Lock-shh-me), which is the Hindu goddess of fortune.


In photography as in life, I try to approach it in a simple, peaceful and natural way; striving to capture those scared and special moments of love and life. My style is photo journalistic, meaningful, inspiring, and beautiful.


I have received the Parent's Choice Award for best Photographer (2014), have been published in National Geographic, Parents Resource Magazine, Whole Life Times, Namarupa and the Yogi Times magazines. Clients include Mandala Publishing, Luluemon Athletica, and Dean Alan Lifestyle. I have also had numerous solo and group art exhibitions throughout the world.


Currently I am living in Northern California, teaching photography and working on various creative projects.
