Introduction: Please read before messaging! I have over a decade of photography experience including but not limited to; headshots, family portraits, newborns, weddings, food, and product photography. I work closely with clients to ensure that their shoot exceeds their expectations and they are satisfied with the results. Simple Solo Portrait Sessions start @ $175 Family Sessions up to 4 members are $250. Additional family members are $20 each. Commercial rate is $50 per hour. A non-refundable $50 deposit is required to hold the date for your session. I also volunteered at the SPCA for 5 years as a photographer and animal socialization specialist. I am comfortable with any size and breed of dog as well as a variety of other animals for pet portraits.

Kelly was great! She is comfortable with all kinds of animals (including my ball python) and was prompt with photo turn around.

Kelly is incredibly kind and beyond talented! She was so open to capture the style of senior photos I had in mind. Her pricing is super affordable for how insanely professional her work is! She has a great personality & made my first photoshoot such a memorable experience; I will definitely be needing her for future occasions!!

Kelly is amazing! We hired her to do a maternity photo shoot for our daughter. She had such a great personality and made our shoot a lot of fun. We are looking forward to getting back in touch with her once our bundle is here.

I booked Kelly very late. She was extremely responsive and professional. She captured a moment we will cherish forever. We cannot thank her enough!

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

    Pricing here includes up to 1 hour of shoot time and I do not put a cap on how many edited photos you will receive. Most of my customers end up with 40 to 50 photos depending on the type of shoot.

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

    I ask a lot of questions and make sure that I am a good fit for their photoshoot.

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

    I have over 10 years of photography experience as well as some formal education in college.
