Hi! I'm Kelsey.
I've had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. My dad was a photojournalist who traveled the world on a ship with his camera, taking photos for an incredible nonprofit for years (it's actually where he met my mom - great story, ask me about it sometime), so photography is in my DNA. I've always loved taking photos and documenting my life and the lives of those around me, but my true passion is performing. It wasn't until I graduated from a BFA performing arts program and was feeling creatively stifled, not being able to perform every day, that I rediscovered creative fulfillment through the lens and began to hone this craft that I've always adored.
I'm a gal of many dreams, goals, and ambitions and one of them is helping you achieve yours! If I can somehow do that through a photo, I'd consider it an absolute honor to shoot with you. Hope we get to play soon!
My goal is, first and foremost, to make you feel as comfortable and confident as possible in front of the camera. I believe that when you're comfortable and confident, your personality and essence radiate through you and your story sparkles in your eyes. We plan, talk and work together to achieve everything you're looking for in a photo and more.
I take pride in creating a relaxed, casual and willing environment that welcomes you to explore parts of you that you might not even know are there yet! I'm your personal cheerleader on shoot day. We'll have fun, we'll share stories, we'll explore some unknowns and we may even open a bottle of wine!
There's a moment early on in every shoot where the person in front of my lens catches a glimpse of something we just shot on my screen and it sparks a confidence in them that they didn't have when they walked into my studio. THAT'S what it's about. That moment.
From there, the rest is history.
If you have questions or need more info, send me an email below. I'd love to hear from you!
