Sound about right?

Well hello there! You’re on the hunt for your perfect photographer to capture your dream images - someone you just click with, who will do their part to minimize the stress everyone associates with having their photo taken. 


WELCOME, I'm kelsey Alumbaugh

are you ready to grow your business

For Creatives

you're going to want to remember them like this


Capturing those once in a lifetime moments


You want to have fun and enjoy the experience, and have something great to look back on when all is said and done. Something more than just a folder in your downloads of all those gorgeous images. I SEE YOU!

It’s time to stop worrying about your photos, and to start having fun with the experience - and to get those images in your hands! 

Get to know ME

I love cold brew coffee, golden light, and laughing too loud. And sometimes I cuss a little when I’m excited. I think all the best people do. I’m obsessed with my son’s giggles and I love making my husband proud. I have a passion for helping couples and families create tangible memories they can look back on for years because those photos deserve to be more than a jpeg hidden on some laptop. 

It’s time you enjoyed having your photo taken and document these important memories, instead of dreading it with every fiber of your being. Because let’s be real, you don’t get this time back. 

Sound like a perfect match to have you chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool holding your photo album like your crown jewel?

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!
