This is Katie. She’s the person I text a zillion times a day with random work things (and non-work things…..like….”Are these jeans too baggy? I know wide jeans are in but are they this in?” 🙈). She’s the person who gently says “Kelly, did you follow up with….?”. She’s the person who 100% gets me when I […]

Yesterday in Instagram Stories I started a conversation about what you do with your photos AFTER your session. Then, I asked what you wish you’d done with your photos. The overwhelming answer? WALL ART. Specifically, canvases. 😍 I don’t offer canvases as part of my regular print product suite, BUT, I also don’t want you sitting on […]

I sometimes feel like a broken record, but let me go ahead and say it one more time. Photo sessions don’t have to be stressful. Photo sessions can be F-U-N. One way to make them not stressful and fun? To have an activity planned. Ok, before you freak out on me and say, “Kelly! I […]

Looking back on a year like 2020, it can be easy to see all frustration and unwanted changes. But, when I went back through my archives last week, I realized quickly that there was so. much. good. There was families laughing together. There were brand new lives. There were puppies who were thankful to have […]

It was December 1st, 2019. I had cooked up the brilliant idea (truth: I totally stole the idea from my friend, Jenny Rusby) to do an activity advent calendar for my kids. The very first activity? A sing along bus. I was JACKED. I knew they’d love it. That afternoon, the very first day of […]

My palms were sweaty and my heart was racing. I legit thought I was going to throw up and had to have a lot of self-talk in the car before I stepped out. It sounds like a high school date, right? 😲​ But, it wasn’t. It was the very first time I photographed another family. […]

I shouldn’t show you this! 🙈

Is there anything better than cracking open the spine of a big, beautiful book? It’s a feeling and sound that I absolutely love. We live in this digital world where so much of what we read and see is pixels on screens, so there’s something to be said for tangible ink on paper. The smell. […]

That was the question I asked myself. I’ve done projects in the past where I try to find a tiny slice of beauty during the pre-dinner hour. But in the morning? Before school? That’s the definition of crazy around our house. I’m still drinking coffee. The kids can take a while waking up. The light […]
