PHOTOGRAPHY THAT BEGINS WITH YOUR STORY

Slow Saturday mornings. Those early days of carrying your child. That short period of time when your baby fits perfectly on your chest. Kids rolling around in the grass. Little ones dancing like ballerinas and tending flower beds that turn into gardens.

What do you want to look back on and remember years from now?

If your current photographs aren’t capturing authentic family moments and if you don’t want a ton of cookie-cutter photos...

Then documentary-style photography is for you.

When we work together, I love getting to know each member of your family. Moms, don’t stress. Whether you choose your home or your favorite outdoor spot as the location, we’ll slow down the day-to-day pace so you can enjoy goofing off with family and taking photos you’ll keep in frames for decades.

Shooting on both digital and film cameras, I take the time to make you laugh, connect with your loved ones, and relax knowing that up-close and personal moments make the best photos. I’m here to make it happen! 

Each session includes an on-location session and an online gallery of your photos with the option to purchase the images you love in print -- plus, I’ll help you plan out the session by sending you a questionnaire before our session so we both know what you’d like to capture on your special day.

Kelli! You did it again. Every time I start looking at them, I cry. How do you do it??! The lighting is perfect and you capture such perfect moments. When Scott asked me what I wanted for Christmas I told him this. I know it’s something I will cherish for a lifetime. We love working with you, you are truly a gifted person!! I wish I knew how to do what you do!! Amazing!! xoxo, Melissa
