Hi, Iā€™m Kelley.

I live in Northern California with my husband, two wild boys (3 and 6 years old), some cats and heaps of plants.

I have loved photography since I was a little girl. My parents were kind enough to allow me to take over their laundry room as a dark room with my grandmothers old equipment throughout high school. As a mom now myself, I am extra grateful for this treasured and important space! Man oh man, do I miss those days - and oddly the smell - but at least the digital age allows me to take more images and ultimately be more creative not worrying about the cost and time! 

I went to school out in the desert and love that landscape almost as much as the California grassy hills. At the University of Arizona, I trained in visual communication with an emphasis in free hand illustration and graphic design. Sounds fancy, right? I basically doodle.

Once I had children of my own I turned my lens on them and found I can just never get enough of it. Looking back on the photos, sharing them with family, knowing I will have them to tell my grand kids about the little details of our life one day fills my heart.

Experience is essential

Beyond the final product and need for perfection. These shoots give us permission to watch and enjoy the tiny details in the moment. I'm always thinking : What story can we tell? What do I want to remember?

I secretly wish I had paparazzi

I just want all the snuggles and little moments documented.

I will gladly be yours.

LEts explore and create together

The best compliment I ever got was from a stranger, saying:

"You look like the kind of person that would be wonderful to travel the world with. "

Me: "Great, where should we go first?"
