Hi, I'm Kelli...

...a small town girl with an appreciation for all things beautiful. At 41, I’ve figured out that life isn’t as complicated as we make it and shorter than we realize so I’m a get it done, go after it, make it happen kind of girl. In business and in life. I’m a big fan of love and creating photos that tell the story that each of my clients carry.

My love language can be met in the form of fresh flowers, chocolate, Dr. Pepper in a styrofoam cup, and quite early mornings. I don’t love traffic, mean people, laundry and slow drivers; Ain't no body got time for that!! My photography adventure started 8 years ago while running and photographing a successful company who designed, manufactured and retailed photography gear. It was the creative outlet I didn’t know I needed and after 7 years I made photography alone my career. Here I am today raising 4 kids and photographing my way through life.

I joke that I’m the divorced wedding and boudoir photographer. It’s a bit ironic and perfect, I think. I absolutely love to stand up and agree with people in love on their wedding day. I have loved and lost so I know very well the significance of those vows being spoken. I also have so much respect for the wife and the women who gets vulnerable and beautiful in front of a camera in efforts to spice up her marriage or to simply see herself different. Women are incredibly brave, strong, and lovely. Sometimes we forget and need a little help remembering. That’s what boudoir is for me. Showing women that they are lovely, lovable and worth celebrating.
