Family & Brand Photographer Santa Barbara

Natural, authentic family photography & lifestyle photography for creative, women-run brands


FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY - Booking Fall 2019 Family Photos

A family photo shoot with me is casual, natural and fun, and focused on capturing the authentic heart and soul of your family. I’ll never pose you awkwardly and have you say cheese. Set against a comfortable, nature backdrop or in your own home, your shoot will produce a collection of beautiful, heirloom photographs you’ll be proud to hang on your walls and pass down to your children some day. Santa Barbara, San Diego (Oct. 18-20), Bay Area (Nov. 15-17) and all places in between.



I offer custom, lifestyle photography packages to women-run brands anywhere along the creative spectrum, and whether you’ve been in business for years, months or are still in the dreaming phase. For retail shops and clothing lines to stylists and bloggers to interior designers and yoga instructors and all other passionate creatives in between, my photos are meant to enhance your visual storytelling and online presence.



Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen the drool-worthy pics I shared about the stunning, historic home I was so thrilled to get to shoot at a couple weeks back. This is what I was prepping for. There’s much about my first family session of the season that hits me every year with the tingles and butterflies that hooked me on photography to begin with, but when it’s set against a backdrop like this?


Hi. I’m Kelly.

I’m drawn to the beauty of authentic, human interaction and connection. I strive to make strong, emotive images that are interesting and rich with natural light. When I’m not behind the camera, you’ll most likely find me at the beach with my best group of girlfriends, a gaggle of kids and Aperol Spritz. I love being outdoors, hiking, traveling, reading, healthy eating, my morning coffee, a clean home and homemade soup. I’m a wife and mother to Isaac (19), Isabella (15) and Francesca (8) and their fur siblings Mila (the cat) and Moustache (the dog).


Client love.

“Kelly is a true artist. She has an amazing eye and talent for bringing out the best in her subjects. Kelly has many talents, but probably highest on the list is creating images that are not only epic, but also honest. She’s delightful to work with and worth every penny. You will love her!” - Melody
