Hi! I’m Kelli, a Sacramento photographer who spends her days documenting the authentic stories of families like yours. Capturing meaningful moments through the lens of photography is a lifelong joy. As a mom of five, I know that recording your family moments takes time, especially when you have little ones! I’m here to put you at ease, ask the right questions, and build the trust that lets us have an intimate, warm session that’s full of joy.
Raised on the central coast and a longtime resident of Sacramento, I was hooked to photography by the early age of twelve, but when my parents said art school was too expensive, I headed off to Cal Poly to get my degree in psychology and early child development, which ultimately helped me learn and empathize with the children I photograph -- although having my own kids went a long way!
After I got married at 23 and had my daughter, I would stay up all night studying for my evening photography classes. When fellow moms began asking me to photograph their children, I knew photography was my calling.
From photographing weddings to recording the unforgettable first days of a child’s life, I’ve been doing this dream job for over ten years and proudly operate on word-of-mouth from past clients who enjoyed working together. At your session, you’ll find me with both a digital and a film camera in hand!
When I’m not photographing families in Sacramento, San Francisco, Tahoe, and surrounding areas, I style photoshoots for bloggers and capture female creative entrepreneurs in their workspaces so they can convey their style through effortless, relaxed photos. On the weekends, you’ll find me wanderlusting over new places, downing as much caffeine as possible, and spending time with family and close friends.
