I’m Kelly

HI! Welcome to my studio. I have been a local photographer for over 10 years. During this time, I not only produce imagery but make sure it looks beautiful in your home, complimenting your style and space. I know that displaying imagery of your family in your home can boost the self esteem of children as well as make a house feel like a home. My portraits are made to outlast you and carry on into furture generations. 

Studio Offerings


Newborn, First Year, Cake Smash, High School Seniors, Family, Pets. Portrait Sessions and artwork designed specifically for your space and home. Full service from start to finish to make sure everything ends up exactly like we plan


From youth photo classes and beginner camera classes to striving photographers, I love to teach and share my knowledge to encourage more imagery in the world and to make sure more people have prints to last into future generations .

COMING 2021: Studio Rental time to allow photographers that cannot afford an entire studio space to be able to practice and stretch their creative legs! Sign Up Here for Updates

Commercial & Small Business

Headshots have always been something I offered. Seeing how important imagery is to businesses I have extended my commercial photographing to include branding and product photography as well.

COMING 2021: Open studio time and prop rental to allow entrepreneurs and influencers the opportunity to take their own photos for social media in the studio with professional lighting and backgrounds.
