Hello friend, 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 fuelled 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.

She came in, the light spilling perfectly on her face. I am trying not to be distracted by the giddy ball of energy in my gut that comes from this inspiring place exploding with natural light. Sit. Tell me what’s on your mind. She did. The words came pouring out. “I posted about my business. […]

If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ve probably never spent a single second googling best practices for shutting down your company. I know I didn’t. Nor did I ever intend to. It is basically the antithesis for business growth. And, the topics that you don’t go searching for are often the most difficult to face, such as, […]

In 2010, I walked away from the career I’d worked towards for 11 years.
