Melissa Kelly Photography | About

I really hate having to write an About Me section. I don’t take myself very seriously. I am a World-Class-Klutz (but fully insured!) and all-around weirdo. Despite my casual nature, I believe in hard work and making a commitment to my clients. Your photographs are heirlooms, and as such I treat them with the utmost care, creativity, and attention to detail.

I am obsessed with light. I love the way that photographs immortalize us, the way they stand as proof that we
were here: we lived and we loved, and we were loved in return.
