I'm Kellie and I'm so happy you're here. This blog a journal about my life, travels and favorite images. Stay a while and say hello!
This beauty is my niece, Kenzie. I was traveling to Southern California for work and Kenzie needed her senior photos taken so we thought, what a great opportunity for something fun and unique! Our locations ranged from Laguna Beach, the hills of the Ojai Valley, downtown Los Angeles and El Matador State Beach in Malibu. […]
Ella is a senior! I remember photographing her at her mom’s wedding several years ago and I can’t believe she’s this beautiful woman who is graduating high school. We met up for her senior photos at a couple locations in Michigan around Grand Rapids and Rockford. It was so fun! We started Ella’s session on […]
Hailey is gorgeous…obviously. I mean, look at her beautiful smile! We met at Hoffmaster State Park for her senior session on a cloudy summer night and we had so much fun. My favorite thing about Hailey was how willing she was to try anything for photos. We decided that if we didn’t love a photo….we […]

Jake is graduating this year which is only a few weeks away! How can it be that time already?! Photography around downtown Grand Rapids is always great, especially for a senior. We went to a rooftop, down alleys, found interesting walls and finally took a few shots in his backyard. The headshot below is my […]
Braden’s senior session in downtown Newaygo was so fun. We met up along the Muskegon River for his senior photos because he loves the outdoors and he loves to fly fish. Combining activities that seniors are interested in with their photos makes me happy….and being creative with those activities helps create unique photos! Braden – […]
These senior pics were so fun to take in downtown Grand Rapids. When Cole & Cori’s mom first contacted me, we started brainstorming ideas of where to have their photos taken and we ended on downtown….in the city. I just love shooting here! You can walk a city block and easily have enough good light, […]
This is the third and final senior session for my gorgeous niece, Emma! Her first two sessions were in a beautiful lavender field and downtown Grand Rapids, but this session was taken on the Pere Marquette beach in Muskegon for her senior photos. We had way too much fun splashing in the waves, getting our […]
