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.

I have spent so much of my career shooting interiors. Beginning with my own home reno, and eventually working with renowned interior designers, architects, residential developers, and real estate agents. I am pleased to say that my interior photography has found its way into multiple publications, such as Dwell Magazine and most recently a residential quarterly […]

When I got my first fancy camera, I just wanted to take a pretty picture. That. Is. It. What exactly “pretty” meant, well, I figured I’d know it when I saw it.  Now, 8 years and thousands of shoots later, my camera’s an extension of my arm, my eye. I sure do know pretty when […]

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. […]

My friends, I want to do you a solid, and save you a whole lotta time and pain with your fancy camera.   Seven years ago I took the plunge. I told my corporate healthcare employer to take that job and shove it. (Actually, I had a totally polite conversation with my lovely boss, but […]

Hooo, boy, where to begin?  I could write a book, not just a blog post, on what NOT to do when starting out. But if I have to boil it down, these are the five biggies, the low-lying fruit of what to do. 1. Hire an accountant: Nothing kills your creative buzz quicker than money […]

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.
