Hi, I'm Kelsey!

I am a portrait photographer from Santa Monica, CA and a graduate from the University of California, Davis where I studied Anthropology and Communications. Photography started out as a way of capturing moments so I could look back on them. The more I brought my camera around and practiced, I realized how much I enjoyed it and turned a hobby into art. I love the idea that you can freeze a moment in time in an enhanced way. Let me share my passion with you and let's work together!

I am based in San Diego, CA and I'm available for photos of all kinds! This includes branding head shots, lifestyle, engagements, small weddings, and seasonal graduation, and family portraits. I am also available for travel!

“As a photographer myself, I wouldn't trust just anyone to take my pictures. Kelsey consistently captures beautiful and authentic photos and she makes sure you are having fun while you're doing it! I appreciate not only her talent but her calm demeanor that helps even the most nervous of clients. She was flexible and open to our specific ideas, and even let us bring our dog along for the shoot. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!”
