Hi, I’m Kelly!

I’m a Raleigh-based newborn and family photographer specializing in heirloom albums & handcrafted wall art.

HEIRLOOM ARTWORK OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY

Keepsakes to treasure your family’s love, connection, & joy

You want to document each moment with your little one as they grow, but those precious photos often just sit on your computer and are rarely looked at. What if you could see your little one’s sweet, smiling face each time you glance at a piece of art on your wall instead? How much joy would that bring to your days?

I specialize in heirloom albums, handcrafted wall art, and other pieces of archival quality artwork so that you can actually enjoy your photos - from the weeks after your session to years in the future.

I would have sworn my daughter did not even smile once and we have the absolute best pictures of her and all of us!”

“Kelly was very professional, yet light hearted in the process and was able to beautifully capture the love of our family. When the discussion for our album and stand-alone portrait began, Kelly made the process super simple and was able to guide me through decisions. The final album and large portrait artwork were perfect, just perfect!”
