Photographer, Self Employed
I'm Kelsey - a romantic, a storyteller, a dreamer. I'm also completely silly, love jamming to T-Swift in the car, and exploring the outdoors.
My love of photography really began as a love for people. I fell in love with portraits at age twelve after working on yearbook staff. Human beings are beautiful, complex, and endlessly fascinating to me. So I dedicated my life to capturing that beauty, to telling our stories through pictures.
