About Kelsey—

When I’m not doing that, you can find me cuddling my two little dudes in my flannel pajama pants and flipping through our own family photo albums! I love showing my babies our story because that’s what this is all about, creating a legacy on your own terms with a life you’re proud to live.

My work days are filled with capturing epic dance offs during wedding receptions and scouting out scenic portrait spots in our beautiful Black Hills.

Because I’ve stood in your shoes and know how it feels to dislike a photo or feel plain awkward, I approach each of my clients with empathy and the powerful ability to pose and capture photos that make you look and feel like the very best version of you.

This isn’t a magical transformation story, but it is the magical reason I’m incredibly good at what I do with photography....

For most of my life, I’ve hated the way I look in photos. Yes, really. Starting in elementary school, I began struggling with my weight and man, Regina George has nothing on sixth grade girls commenting on the fact that I was no longer a member of the itty bitty titty committee. Those experiences left such a deep mark on my self esteem, I struggled for so long to see myself as beautiful and worthy of having my memories captured in photos. It took some deep work on myself to really come to view my body through a different lens. So intensely grateful for my husband who loves me and sees me as the beautiful lady of his life.

and here’s a story you might not expect from a photographer...

"Kelsey is such a beautiful human being!

Anyesha + Brian


Her own personality, creative mind and her desire to capture raw emotions is what sets her work apart. She made us very comfortable and relaxed, we laughed like crazy and it was so pure!”

anastasia + andrew

We even got a little teary eyed remembering all of the sweet moments that were captured. Kelsey was so sweet throughout the whole process! She was so good at getting everyone to laugh. I would definitely recommend Kelsey to all of my friends or anyone looking for a sweet, reliable photographer. She made it so easy to work with her and I feel like I gained a friend in the process!"

"Our photos show the raw emotion and realness of the day!


kirby + bjorn

From the first contact with Kelsey, she was beyond professional and personable. She genuinely wanted to get to know us and what we were looking for. We were feeling a little nervous to be in front of the camera, but Kelsey made us feel so comfortable. She was so much fun to work with! We absolutely LOVE the images too! Kelsey did such a wonderful job capturing memorable keepsakes for us!"

"We had the best time working with Kelsey!


teresa + andrew

She made me feel so comfortable and my husband and I had the most wonderful time! It was awesome to see our personalities and quirky traits being shown through pictures. Not only do you get photos that you will cherish for the rest of your life. But you also get to know and spend time with an amazingly kind individual! I would hands down recommend Kelsey to everyone!"

"Kelsey is not only an amazing photographer but she is an amazing human being!
