You belong here.

this is for the artsy, the awkward, the misunderstood.

I’m going to guess that you’ve probably spent some time trying to figure out where you fit in, or how to “put yourself out there.” The good news is, you don’t actually have to fit in here — you already belong.

If you’re struggling to get your creative business off the ground — or maybe you break out in hives at the thought of going to a networking event — I can help with that. I mean, probably. If you need Benadryl for the hives, I’m actually all out. But I do have lots of ideas that don’t involve small talk or group projects or the word “hustle” (unless we’re talking about the dance and you can teach me how). Scroll down a little more (or click on Work With Me up there at the top) to find out more.

I’m Kelly.

Photographer, mother of daughters & full-time introvert.

I’m an INFP and an Enneagram 4w5 if you’re into that sort of thing. Most days you’ll find me wearing maternity pants longer than I should and creating spreadsheets that I’ll eventually abandon. I love all things Myers-Briggs, and now I’m even an MBTI® (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) Certified Practitioner.

I’ve spent the better part of a decade as the Art Director for Comstock’s magazine in Sacramento, and when I wasn’t doing that, I ran a family photography business.
