All that being said, I am here to make your plan, idea, or vision come to life. Whether it be shooting one of the most memorable days of your life or a simple LinkedIn headshot, I’m here, camera and editing software at the ready! So what are you waiting for? Let’s do this!

Kelli, definitely gets the job done & doesn’t do no playing when it comes to shooting. Her pictures are definitely beyond amazing. She knows her angles and ways around the camera!!! Totally recommend her for ALL / ANY shoots & events. She makes the shoot fun and has a very great creative eye for what would make the picture best for the shoot. The turnaround for pictures and editing was efficient and well done! She is very professional, friendly, responsive and fun throughout the whole process of the shoot.

Kelli is an amazing photographer! She is my go-to person for all my photo needs. I know I can always count on her to deliver high quality photos in a timely manner. She’s super easy to communicate with and always very accommodating. Most recently Kelli took my graduation photos and I was amazed at how great they turned out!

It was really great having Kelly for our graduation photoshoot. She took great photos. Was also very accommodating when we asked for pics from more locations and poses.

She was great to work with, during the sessions she would make us feel confident and through that, draw out some really good moments. Her post processing work was stellar! I would have liked a little more candid moments, although that was probably the virtue of the photo shoot style itself. Overall, very impressed with Kelli’s work!

Kelli's work speaks for itself! She knows how to angle you for headshots and takes the time to make sure that you look good in your photos. She always takes your input into consideration. She's experienced with all skin tones, which is really important for me as a POC.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My standard rate is $300/hr for most shoots. However, since I am new to the platform I am offering discounts based on the project. A 1-hour shoot can take place in up to two locations and comes with 15 edited images. If you are low-income and looking for photography, please specify in your outreach.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I require a $50 deposit in order to book the time and date of the shoot. This is non-refundable but will be used as a credit towards your total invoice. Before the shoot, we will have a 15-30 minute call to chat about your vision. This can be extended as necessary for engagement or wedding shoots.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've been taking photos since I was a teenager and have taken photography courses in both Digital and Film Photography during High School and Middle School.
