I'm a wife, mother, animal lover, and wildly passionate photographer living in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I have three boys, Carter, Owen and Emmett, and we also just added a darling baby girl to our family via adoption, Veda!
I have been in business since 2009 and I absolutely what I do! While I have explored all types of photography my heart is in family lifestyle photography. My goal as a photographer is to capture the raw, natural, unforced moments-- those faces you see and moments you have with your kiddos every single day-- those are the ones I am after, so that you can have those images to cherish forever.
When you book a session with me, you won't get pictures of everyone looking at the camera- if that "money shot" of everyone perfectly posed and smiling at the camera is what you are looking for, I am 100% not the photographer for you. Connection is huge for me and by that I don't mean the connection between subject and camera.
You won't get pictures of everyone always smiling. You won't get pictures of everyone perfectly posed.
What you will get when you book a session with Stephanie Kelley Photography is so much more than that. You will receive images of raw, pure, natural moments. I'll capture the connection and love between everyone in your family- isn't that what you want?
You will get images of belly laughs and squeals of glee. You will get smiles and smirks and also straight faces. You will get tender moments and you will get playful moments.
You will get images you can feel. I want my images of the people you treasure most, to create an emotional response for you.
I will capture your story- what your life looks like today no matter what stage of life you are in and I simply cannot wait to work with you!
