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 […]

Last week I shot my first real session in over a year. The only reason I ever stepped behind the camera many years ago was to have a creative outlet and at some point over ten years I lost my passion. I had begun to dread picking up my camera. Then last spring COVID-19 hit. […]

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 have a confession: When things get busy I put blogging on the back burner.  My clients love to see their images featured on the blog but they love a fun session and fast turnaround even more.  While making a blog list, I realized I had missed quite a few sessions.  This absolutely stunning session […]

This fall I saw a influx in George Washington High School seniors and the trend continued throughout the the season.  Gabbie was the sixth or seventh member of her class that I photographed.  It was late November before we photographed her session and getting rather chilly but Gabbie was a trooper.  She never once complained even […]

I cannot believe January is almost over and by now we’re probably all frozen!  Aren’t you glad I still have some amazing fall senior sessions to share with you?  It was beginning to turn chilly when we photographed Haley from Poca High Schools session.   We managed to have tons of fun despite needing coats […]

This fall I have been very blessed with many Patriots from George Washington High School as clients.   Cassie booked her session after seeing her fabulous friend Ashton ‘s senior session  and I’m so blessed to have met both of these lovely ladies.  Cassie was laid back, fun and so very down to earth.  We kicked off […]

Since starting my Model Team a few years ago I have had a fabulous representative from Roane County High School each year.  This year the lovely Gabi represents RCHS on our team and she’s truly an amazing addition to the KBP family.  Gabi is a cheerleader and dancer but her biggest accomplishment was devoting her […]

Fall sessions were a game of chance with the weather.  Temperatures bounced from chilly to extremely warm and the leaves refused to change.  We had to reschedule the lovely Brooke from St Albans High School session a few times due to rain, cold weather and Mother Nature causing general havoc.  We finally had a break […]

One of the most flattering things for a photographer is to have client’s travel from out-of-town to you.  When Jasmine from Tug Valley High School first contacted me to set up her session I remember clarifying with her how far of a distance she’d be traveling.  She was determined… she wanted a session in Charleston […]

Raise your hand if you’re longing for warmer days?  After last week’s bitter cold I’m wishing we were back to Ashton’s senior session.  Funny thing… we thought it was chilly on this day.  Ha!  Hindsight truly is 20/20. Ashton is a senior at George Washington High School and one of the most stylish seniors I […]

Every year I find some of the most amazing seniors to be a part of KBP’s Senior Model Team.  This year’s team includes the lovely Payten from Sissonville High School.  Payten is very involved in her school activities and last summer she won a scholarship to study abroad in Frankfurt, Germany and Paris, France. She was […]

Scheduling senior sessions in the late fall between a Kayla’s school schedule and working proved to be a bit tricky.  We attempted everything within our power to have her session on a warm day but Mother Nature won.  The day of her session the temperature was a lovely 34 degrees.  Thirty four degrees y’all!?!  Thankfully […]

Bridget O.

"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. "
