I believe in light and dance floors and romance, and a little extra magic.


MY goal is to deliver an experience that is FUN - so that I can capture the most authentically YOU there is. And when it's all said and done, you have something breathtaking to look back on. Something more than just a folder in your downloads of all those gorgeous images. Something that will truly stand the test of time.

That's what my clients get - every time. Let's get you your dream photos!

Get to know ME

Lover of cold brew, being a mama and all the Mexican food! I'm a wedding and family photographer, here for all your big moments and passionate about turning those moments into memories you can actually hold in your hands. With a light and airy style, I believe your photos will stand the test of time.

I have a passion for helping couples and families create tangible (literally in your hands) memories they can look back on for years because those photos deserve to be more than a jpeg hidden on some laptop.

She encouraged us to laugh and be ourselves, and that definitely shows in our photos.

I cannot say enough great things about Kelsey. She has been so sweet and so incredibly easy to work with. She flew out to Seattle to shoot our engagement photos and we had such a great time. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. You will absolutely not regret hiring this talented lady for your photos!

Our latest session with Kelsey was just as amazing as always! We love that she always has tricks up her sleeve to get good smiles out of them...I couldn’t ask for anyone with more talent, knowledge & passion to capture special moments for my family throughout this journey called life.

Kelsey has done an amazing job at capturing my family's milestones this past year. From the moment of our first session, to now our fifth session coming up this fall, Kelsey has surpassed my expectations each and every time! She is very quick to respond, detailed oriented, and is very talented.

We absolutely loved our experience with Kelsey. We have a handful 2 year old and at every occasion she just completely embraced him he ended up loving her and her endless amounts of treats! Look forward to working with her again in the future!

She is so bubbly and sweet and made us feel very comfortable the whole session. To put the cherry on top, we got our pictures within days when we were expecting to have to wait a few weeks! The pictures are beyond words and I can’t wait to have her photograph our baby’s newborn photos once he finally gets here!
