Hello! I’m Kelly, a photographer in Bend, Oregon. I’m so glad you stopped by! I wear a lot of hats and am passionate about a lot of things!
I'm a wife and a mom
First, I’m a wife to an amazing man, and a momma to three gorgeous girls. We live in beautiful Bend, OR. If you’ve never been here and you like the outdoors, you seriously need to come and experience this place. It’s amazing. It’s here you will find my family and I living up the summer-time (our favorite time of year) swimming, camping, hiking, biking, hanging out at one of the nearby lakes or rivers for some floating or paddle boarding, etc. During the rest of the year, we just do our thing with school, sports, reading, the usual. We are pretty chill people, not too busy, and preferably rolling at a not-so-stressful pace. It’s a good life.
I'm a photographer
I’m a photographer, and a huge nerd about it too. I seriously love everything about this art-the light, the technicalities, the challenge, the project opportunities, the passionate communities of people who are as nerdy as me, and the endlessness possibilities for growth and learning new things. Photographing my family through the year is my favorite sort of photography project, but for the last 4 years I've also enjoyed photographing other families, newborns, and high school seniors. I also love second shooting at weddings for my wedding photog peeps, but you definitely won’t find me as a primary wedding photographer, not my gig!
I'm a Rodan + Fields Skin Care Consultant
Have you tried R+F yet?? These products are A-MA-ZING. I refused to try them for like 2 years, despite multiple people recommending them. Then finally after finding myself in a desperate need for moisture in our dry, high desert climate, I finally caved and ordered a regimen. Not 3 months later I signed up as a consultant because this company, I mean WOW. It is so good, and it is growing like crazy (it is now the #1 skincare company in North America), and I knew this product is going places. It works like no other, and who doesn’t want great skin? If you happen to read this and need to try it like every one else, contact me so I can give you more details, or click this link for more info. You won’t be disappointed, and if for some reason you are, just send your empty bottles back within 60 for 100% refund, no questions asked. It really is that simple!
I'm a nurse
This is my part-time “day-job”. My 10-years curriculum vitae includes: cardiac/vascular intermediate care, pediatric acute care, home health, and cardiac triage. It’s a good job that pays the bills, and it always feels like what I do matters to someone else. I feel blessed and humbled by this job daily, and it is an honor to serve people in this capacity.
