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 […]

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.

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 […]

Fall is both a blessing and a curse for photographers.  Past clients along with new faces love to get new family photos as the weather starts to turn.  It’s a very busy time.  The downfall is we often run out of time to share these gorgeous photographs with you until later in the winter.  Hello, […]

Fate works in unique ways to bring couples together.  Sydney & Ross grew up oceans apart from one another yet through a series of fortunate events they found one another in West Virginia.  Ross came to America a few years ago to pursue his education and love of soccer.  He landed at the University of […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s been a wild and crazy fall/winter y’all!  My goal in 2017 was to shoot more seniors and this fall I did that.  It was a very blessed season.  Sadly I also dropped the ball on blogging some amazing sessions because I was so busy with shooting sessions. I met Dylan from George Washington High […]

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. "
