— Learn about me as a photographer and designer.
VISUALIZE. DESIGN. CREATE. INSPIRE.
Hello and welcome to my small-but-mighty corner of the internet! I am Kelly Renée and I am an explorer, a creator, and a dreamer. An image-maker, with a goal to empower, enlighten, and transform.
The creative arts have been a part of my life from the moment I could put crayon to paper; the walls weren't safe either if I remember correctly. As a youth, my passion and imagination materialized through sketching with pencil or charcoal, but those passions over time evolved into the digital realm of print and web media.
As a corporate marketing professional by trade, five years ago I was seeking a new challenge and a way to re-ignite my imagination. It was through this need and desire that I found myself picking out my first DSLR camera. What began as a new creative outlet and hobby ended up imparting a true passion; so much so that I pursued formal training.
My work and continued practice as a photographer – with a predilection and love for capturing people – has been exciting and complementary to my 10+ years of work in marketing communications and design. It is the culmination of this experience and passion that I share with others.
I love to learn about people, listen to their stories, and capture them in a way that is fun, authentic, and beautiful. While headshots and personal branding is something I specialize in - whether a job seeker, professional, or business owner - I am always expanding upon my skills and interests. This means I am always exploring and shooting other styles of photography such as family, pets, food, still life, and beauty, and I am happy to capture these for clients too.
