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.





oh, hello there!

No one ever told you being a photographer meant spending hours upon hours in sweatpants in front of your computer screen, editing, adjusting and tweaking your images.  Can I keep it real with you guys?  My best editing advice is – drumroll – do as little as possible.

Call me biased, but as a photographer a love a good quality photo. It is the thing that stops my scroll, causes me to pause with delight as I study the elements of a photo that make me happy. A nice composition, a tack sharp subject, all the right depth of field, and add something […]

We all love ourselves a great interiors photo. The kind that you want to just climb into, that you are inspired by, that kind of photo that just recalibrates what you mean when you say “hashtag house goals.” And the best thing is, you don’t even need to be a professional photographer to take stunningly […]
