Hey there! I’m Kel!
Kansas City living, Oregon grown.
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist, constantly seeking and striving for everyday magic.
Remember when you were a kid and magic was so easy to believe in? There was no questioning its existence. It just WAS. I feel like I’m always teetering on that line between fantasy and reality.
I started photography in high school as a way to express my 16-year-old girl emotions. Mainly self-portraits. It was my way of “journaling”. It wasn’t until many years, a walk down the aisle and two kids later that I realized I wanted so much more than just quick snapshots. Although, I still love capturing candid moments and I dabble in family, wedding and senior photography, my true love for fine art portraits and composites is something fierce.
I find much of my inspiration from books, illustrations and old movies, but my kids are my biggest muses and are the root of all my ideas. I’m almost always looking to them for inspiration and concepts. Plus they’re free models…
I am a firm believer that you should fiercely chase after whatever sets your soul on fire.
And tacos, I’m also a firm believer in those as well.
Words to describe me: Awkward. Kooky. Smart-ass.
Favorite books: Gone With the Wind. LOTR. Harry Potter.
