about kellie

Hi, I’m Kellie. I am a teacher by trade with a background in Spanish and ESL. I currently spend my days momming  two wild, crazy and seriously cute kids, teaching Spanish online, and taking photos in and around Raleigh, NC. I married my high school sweetheart, and if our years together has taught us anything, it’s that nothing is a coincidence.

My photography is about revealing that purposeful nature that gets hidden in the ordinary. From capturing the magic of birth, to documenting the everyday family, a season of life “just because”, or you doing what you were handpicked to do. It’s all worth documenting!

Blogging was my first love and is pretty much the only thing I’ve done somewhat consistently since college. Come back often and follow along to see highlights from photo sessions and random shenanigans we get into. Currently our life is: Budgeting our way through Financial Peace (on baby step three!), battling severe eczema with GOOD food, raising a threenager and his firecracker little sister (note: firecrackers do not sleep), celebrating stories of God’s radical love on display at Elevation Church– all with a light dusting of Cheerios and dog hair. It’s a mess for sure, but it’s a beautiful one and it is ours.

We believe that our life and everything in it was handpicked for us by our Creator.

We are handpicked.
