I'm Kelly and I am so happy you are here! I abandoned my career as an OT to pick up a camera and follow my heart. I love the east coast and am fueled by coffee, pizza and red wine. I am a wife, a mom and a lover of rescue mutts. I go adventuring in the summer and I hibernate in the winter. I blog about photography, business and all things inspirational.

You’ve got the photo you snapped of said product.  And that’s where it falls apart.  Your shot is dark and dull. The background is hazy, maybe shadows are messing with your vision. And your product just looks, well, flat.  In short, there’s no way in hell you’d consider sharing that image online. And you’re feeling […]

1. Use natural light, not flash Using the flash on your camera or phone will create harsh lighting with unflattering shadows. The two images above are some quick photos, the one on the left was taken with the on-camera flash, the one on the right used diffused natural lighting. As you can see on the […]

If you master only one type of product photography, make it the flat lay.  Whether you’re a chef, artisan, entrepreneur or other hustling creative, if you make and sell a physical thing, the flat lay is your new best friend.  (Um, Kelly, what the heck’s a flat lay?) If you’ve been on the interwebs, you […]

It is no secret that photography is probably the most powerful selling tool in today’s internet age. We already know that over 90% of consumers admit to making a purchase decision based on a photo alone (guilty!). And here’s the thing, I hate to be the one to break it to ya, but no one […]

Don’t you love it when the BEST thing is also the FREE thing?  Well, you’re in luck, friend, because that’s the case when it comes to lighting.  There’s nothing like the sun when it comes to making your product photography pop. Sure, lightboxes and studio setups have their place, but if you can master natural […]

Driving sales for your online business is simpler than you think. This technique is proven to improve sales and assist with the quality of your DIY product photos.

It is no secret that product photography is a pivotal component to creating a brand, evoking a feeling and augmenting the perceived value of the products you are promoting or selling. In fact, in today’s internet age, 93% of consumers claim that they will make a purchase decision based on a photo alone, without doing […]

Ten minutes for wedding portraits, no problem! It was the theme for these two who fell quickly in love and wasted no time sharing it. Falling in love (and outdoor Canadian winter portrait sessions!) can happen so quickly when you think about it, and for these two high school mates, they found themselves back at […]

1. PLANOLY I love this app, it helps me feel on top of my Instagram game and allows me to be thoughtful and intentional about my plan for the week or the month. Basically, you can create a little “library” of images, type in captions, make lists of hashtags and have them all live in […]
