A few years ago I captured Kaitlyn from George Washington High School’s older siblings senior session.  It makes my heart so happy when parents trust me to photograph not one but TWO of their children’s senior photographs. Kaitlyn was a natural in front of the camera plus her outfits were swoon worthy.  Congratulations Kaitlyn.  Thank […]

I love when seniors have a vision for their session.  Hannah from Capital High School knew she wanted to incorporate her violin plus have a very outdoorsy backdrop for her mini session. When I suggested we head to a very small spot in Coonskin Park to capture her session she looked doubtful. I knew the […]

The longer I am a photographer the less first I have but Olivia from Winfield High session brought with it a new first. The day of her session was extremely hot with zero chance of rain. It rained so hard that everything was soaked and the humidity was extreme. Typically a photographer is able to […]

I absolutely love to photograph red heads like Grace from Sissonville High School. During the session inevitably I’ll end up telling a story about my own little red head at home and my client’s mom will declare that she did the same thing at my daughter’s age. It’s as though red heads share certain personality […]

Just as the leaves were changing I met up with Hannah from Cross Lanes Christian School.  It’s truly not every day that I find someone that is completely photogenic but Hannah was one of those people.  Her style combined with absolutely stunning beauty made her one of the easiest senior sessions I photographed this year. […]

It was a bumpy year for the students at Roane County High School including my absolutely stunning client, Payton.  The year began  with losing one of their beloved fellow students during a football game, then ended with Coronavirus.  Unfair doesn’t begin to cover the situation. Despite the cloudy days Payton always seems to have a […]

We rushed to take JT from Riverside High School senior photos in November.  The day was perfect but we were well aware that within a week the weather could change and our window for taking his photos would end. Spring was not an option because JT would be spending the spring much like he did […]

We started Nitro High School senior Madison’s senior sessions the end of last summer when it was sunny, happy and the year seemed like it held nothing but possibilities. We excitedly discussed how her prom dress would look and where we’d go for pictures in the spring.  Little did we know the spring would not […]

This year my heart aches as I am sharing some of my favorite images from the past year: my senior sessions.  Usually this time of year I blog about the deep connections we built during the spring of senior year from senior sessions, prom session and finally ending the year with graduation minis.  Often my […]

Remember when I said I was going to stay on top of my blogging schedule and not let the insanity of summer/fall sessions get the best of me last year?  I lied. The worst part is in my free time I help my fabulous friend Rachel from TheLawTog with her marketing and I know how important […]

"My daughter "beats to her own drum," you could say. I have booked numerous sessions with Kelly which have all turned out perfect! She is patient and understands how to grab and hold the attention of a child! My little girl and I love Kelly and always look forward to a new, unique and fun photography adventure with every session!"

"One of the biggest challenges for me was finding a photographer who could work well with a small child and continue on with her."


"Kelly does just that! She has been wrangling and dealing with our family since the oldest was 2 and I wouldn’t change it for the world. We have some fantastic images around our home of memories we will never forget all because of her. 

"Pictures are not an easy task in our family. When you have children many years apart you have to find someone who can capture them both perfectly. "

Katie B.

"Children and family pictures are an investment in which I have found so much value. I treasure all of our sessions as they allow us to remember personalities at each age, exciting events in our lives, and simple moments together as a family."

"Just the other day my husband mentioned his favorite picture of our daughter and not surprisingly it was one that Kelly had captured. "
