Over the years, these two passions have found their place in me in various forms.
I graduated with my BA in Visual Arts with an emphasis in painting and drawing. I started doing custom portraits and then opened an Etsy shop selling my original art and prints of my work. I went on to get a Master's degree in Art Therapy Counseling and worked for years with adults, teenagers, and children as an art therapist at a psychiatric hospital. Then I married a filmmaker and, soon after we had our daughter, Chas and I started a videography business called Kelly Arts Films.
When I found photography, I felt like I had discoverd a way for me to not only be a full-time wife and mother but to also continue to fill this life-long desire to merge art together with genuine human connection. And that's what I try to capture with my photography.
I want your photos to be authentic, beautiful, and to honestly portray the spirit and love of you and your family.
