Introduction: Hello! I have been a portrait photographer in Northern Colorado since 2017. My passion is capturing memorable moments for people. Making connections and working with youth is important to me—teaching being my other career. Graphic design has been close to my heart my whole life, leading me to my past position at CSU to redesign their marketing presence. I also wrote my thesis about the benefits of it in a classroom. I would love to make your vision come to life!

Courtney G.

Wedding and Event Photography

Kelly did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding! She was always responsive and professional throughout the entire experience. Kelly captured each and every moment that we wanted so beautifully. She was quick in the editing process and got them back to us within 3 weeks. We are so happy to have these beautiful photos to cherish forever!

Portrait Photography

I hired Kelly for an outdoor headshot session. The session went great and the photos turned out awesome! Kelly was punctual, responsive, and a lot of fun to work with! I would gladly hire her again and recommend her to others.

Portrait Photography

Kelly was great!! We had a last minute idea to surprise my FIL and his wife with a photo shoot with our daughters. Kelly responded quickly, offered ideas for a location and did a great job engaging everyone (even our sometimes sassy 5.5 year old 😊)! She had her sister come along which worked out great :) We were visiting from out of town but would recommend to any local friends/family. We would use her again when we come to town! We can’t wait to see the final pictures!!

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

    I offer great pricing because I believe clients deserve quality work without breaking a budget. People’s precious memories and visions are at the heart of my work.

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

    I start by emailing my clients what their interests are in type of session and location. I will get back with a list of locations they can choose from unless they already have one in mind. After scheduling a time, then we’ll talk on phone to chat briefly so we can get to know each other a little better. That’s a great time for clients to express any other interests like props, editing preference, or overall theme (i.e. rustic, urban, etc.).

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

    I have taken two photography classes, had my work in galleries, attended seminars, participated in a National Geographic photo walk, am a member of a photography club, and am self-educated. Learning is part of my identity and I enjoy finding resources to improve my skills.
