i'm kelsey, but you can call me kels.

—hi friend!
i'm so glad you're here.

I have a passion for real connections and big ole belly laughs, and that's just what I like to capture in my photos.

I'm so glad you've found my little section of this crazy internet world. I'm just a southern Tennessee girl living in northern Virginia and living life to the fullest. You can count on me to be your favorite coffee crazed, sunset chasing, personal hype girl that also probably watches too much TikTok for a twenty-something year old. When I'm not behind the camera, I like to spend my time in the gym or chilling on my porch swing with my housemates. I also love exploring new towns and spaces and spending the evening with a margarita in hand chowing down on some chips and guac.

so here's the tea

nice to meet ya!

When I'm not snapping cute pics of you and your boo, I'm a fitness instructor and absolutely love weight lifting.

I once spent a month in Amsterdam studying Dutch design and culture!

bigggg big fan of picnics on the beach at sunset with friends

Where are my fellow plant mamas?

I probably (definitely) drink way too much coffee.
go-to order: iced coffee with almond milk and sf vanilla

I'm originally from Nashville, TN! born and raised. thankfully all of my family is still there, so I still get to visit often!

fun facts & random bits

Photography is my favorite way of connecting with people. Whether it's on a wedding day with a hundred of your closest friends and family, or just an engagement session with you and your boo (hello, professional third wheel over here 💁🏼‍♀️). Some days it's with my senior gals talking about high school drama or big dreaming about the future, or it's an evening spent with other small business owners creating photos that help bring their brand to life. Whatever day it may be, I'm all in. Here to connect and create and capture a moment otherwise gone. 

So let's do this thing!
