i'm kellie

newborn and portrait photographer 

I'm a pretty laid back person. I know what I like and stick to that. I order the same thing every time at restaurants, and it drives my husband crazy. I grew up in sunny (yes, it really is sunny) San Diego, CA. I am the middle daughter of a family of three girls. I laugh when I'm nervous. I love miniatures. I love Elvis and share the same birthday. I cry every time I watch Meet Joe Black. I do love coffee, and can't really understand people who don't. I don't like being outside, or bugs, or getting dirty. I have a husband and two daughters, and they are the loves of my life! 

Kellie has been so kind to us in person, so sweet to our child, and captured our girl so beautifully that we'll think of her as part of our village for years to come. ~Rachel

Kellie is such an artistic photographer and so sweet with my baby. I'm always in awe and in love with the photos I receive from her! I couldn't be more thankful for these precious memories captured of our family! -Veronica

precious memories

Kellie is wonderful! She took photos of my daughter for her 1st birthday, newborn photos of my son, and family photos of all of us. We love working with her and treasure the images she has captured of us.

the why

the heart behind 

what i do

When I was 23, I moved to San Francisco. I started working for a half a dozen wedding photographers. They taught me the business and the technical aspects of photography. Once I got married and had my daughters, I was drawn to the whole experience of bringing a new baby into the world. It is a feeling like no other. I knew at that point that I had found what I was meant to do. There is such a calm and captivating presence to a newborn baby. Every tiny detail amazes me. 

I have spent the past few years perfecting my skills. Working with tiny babies requires a lot of patience and care. I love that I get to be a part of the whole process of bringing a new baby home. Working with my clients, and seeing their love for their baby is such a joy to me! Being a mom, I understand that love. My girls inspire me every day, and are such a reminder of God's love. Life is precious. Babies are miracles. This "job" never gets old for me. I am honored to be your baby's first photographer.
