KELLY BROYLES PHOTOGRAPHY

There’s a belief amongst photographers that glitter is the best prop to make kids smile.  It’s a lie. Colorful pom pom balls are the best way to make kids smile! And I have proof: Lexi + Payton had so much fun throwing fluff at one another and into the air for their annual birthday session in the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

High School Seniors

Children + Families

Disney obsessed, binge TV watching children, high school senior + family portrait photographer in West Virginia.

MEET Kelly B.

I’m so blessed to have clients that have been with me since the beginning of their children’s lives.  I started to capture this sweet family when B’s big sister turned a year old.  For B’s birthday his momma knew we wanted to recreate big sister’s bathtub and cake smash photos. Sadly for her B was […]

Much of the country believes that West Virginia gets snow most of the winter.  This is not true – we rarely get a good snow day. Outside of Charleston we rarely get snow that lasts more than 12 hours. When we do have enough snow to enjoy then we’re snowed in on the mountain tops […]

When my childhood friend Terra told me about her new shop located in South Charleston, WV I knew we had to celebrate. She opened Seventh Boutique & Beauty Bar, which is a one stop shop for beauty services and unique clothing/items! The shop had been a dream of hers for many years and seeing it […]

It seems like yesterday I was traveling over 12 hours with a barely one year old to meet this sweet little girl in Alabama on her birthday.  I never imagined I could immediately love a child other than my own children but the moment I held her I knew I would protect her fiercely for […]

Creating magic in children’s lives is one of the best parts of my job.  This summer I had the opportunity to turn some amazing little ladies into mermaid princesses with the help of Fin Fun Mermaid Tails,  Floppy Bunny Boutique, Olive & Eggplant  & Fairy Tail Mermaids.  Seeing the magic on these little girl’s faces as […]

A little less than two years ago you met this gorgeous gal at our Glamping Mini sessions and since she’s gained a new partner-in-crime, her baby brother.  This adorable duo came to me dressed in their best red, white & blue attire for a patriotic mini session.  They were all smiles and oh so adorable. […]

I photograph a lot of children around Charleston WV and I’ve never met one quite like Kennedy.  Most of the time I end up playing games, telling jokes and being silly to keep kids attention but her.  Kennedy was destined to model.  She practiced posing before coming to the session, picked out the perfect Jackie […]

I met this sweet girl during a fundraiser for MOPs.  She was not in the mood to have her photographs taken the day we met which made her momma & I both nervous about her birthday session.  The day of her session she came ready with a smile on her face and full of laughter. […]

When your birthday is in December it can be rather tricky to have the fun outdoor sessions that summer kiddos get to do.  I don’t believe in letting winter stop your dreams!  Breck’s fifth birthday session we combined two of her favorite stores are Target and Ellen’s Ice Cream.  We could have never predicted just how […]

"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."

MORGAN M.

"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. "
