The Kelly Ann 3 Experience

The experience you have during family photos means a whole lot. And when booking me as your family photographer, I feel that the time we spend during your session should be as equally amazing as the finished product.

I want you to be smiling, laughing, and feeling at ease throughout the entire process. I'll be there with you every step of the way... making you look great (that isn't difficult at all!).

The experience is so important for personal reasons as well. After all, your family photographer sets the tone for not only how the images look, but how you remember those moments So, hiring someone who has not only the style of photography you love, but also a fun, outgoing attitude, matters - and that's exactly what you get with me.

Simply, we will have a GREAT time together with everything along the way, and you will get beautiful photos out of it. And that's the way it should be.



Everything I do is custom.
Simply build your own collection.

Step 2: Choose your 
digital images


*** Travel fees will apply to locations outside of 30 minute drive. Ask for details.
*** A 7.5% Durham, NC sales tax will be added to all packages.
*** Custom payment plans are available.

approximately 4-6 weeks after your session you will receive  a digital gallery with all of your edited images (this is where you grab the tissues and cry because yes, your family is THAT BEAUTIFUL). From here you decide which digital images you would like to purchase. This will give you the high resolution images so that you may print your own photos to your heart's content! 

Step 3:  Select and customize your Fine Art Prints & Heirloom Albums

Gift Prints from only $50
wall art from only $500
Albums from only $1000

The decision to purchase wall art and/or albums is one that will have a long lasting effect. It's an investment, and one I want you feeling 110% excited about. At the end of the day, these are the things that matter, these are the moments that are fleeting. These will be passed on to your children's children, and providing you with high quality is of the utmost importance to me.

wondering about a deal?

Who doesn't love a discount?  For the first SIX months of 2023 I will be offering a pre-pay discount for your session.  If you choose to prepay for the entire gallery, you will receive $200 off the total price. If you book a session anytime before June 30th, you can take advantage of this deal.  The discount is not guaranteed to stick around past that date. 

Yep, It's That

Common FAQs

Q: How long have you been a photographer?

A: I first picked up a camera seriously when I was a teenager (35mm film days), and I fell in love with documenting moments and life's story as I traveled around with my family, and hung out with my friends. But it wasn't until I had kids that I really started to get serious.  I made it my life's mission to soak in everything, immerse myself in how to capture the moments, and never miss a thing.  I didn't begin to take on clients until I had bee shooting confidently for another several years.  I had a career as a Physical Therapist, and 3 active kids when I first took on a professional stance with my photography.  After the birth of my 4th child, I took it on as a full-time career. So, we're talking many+ years now as a profession. Man, now I feel old. Haha!

Q: How many Families have you photographed?

A: I'm honestly not sure the answer to this one.  I tend to try to take on less sessions than many other photographers each year.  I would guess in the range of 30-40 families a year.  I love to photograph families with their own personal portrait sessions.  I cater to, and customize everything involved in each session, which does not leave me room to take on too many in order to provide my very best.  I try to have 1-2 sessions each week.  And since there's 52 weekends in a year, my weekends have been basically filled with love stories, growing families, babies being born, milestones reached, and seniors taking flight.  Your story becomes my story.

Q: What should we wear?

A: I am here for this part, start to finish.  From my own personal client wardrobe (available to you for your session), to my guidance and recommendations, I have you covered.  Upon booking your session we get started with our planning.  I send you a link with all of my favorite places to shop, a direct link to my Amazon storefront with coordinating outfits pinned for the entire family.  I hold your hand, or sit back and give a little support, whichever way that you prefer, I offer my expertise to the extent that you want it.  This is what I live for.  The fashion that we chose for your session sets the stage.  It brings everything together.  I will make sure that together we make your outfits perfect.

Q: How would you describe your style?

A: Fresh, bright, ethereal, unique, timeless, dreamy, joyful, ... a piece of artwork, just for you ... if I do say so myself! I have created a very specific, consistent, and unique style that I am proud to offer my clients. I adore moments of genuine expression, and we PLAY a lot during our time together! This makes for the happiest images ever, and if that brings a smile to your face too, we'd be a great match.

Q: When and where should we take our photos?

A: As for the where, I will send you a location guide with places to select from depending on your favorite look.  The when really depends somewhat on what type of session that you want.  Many of my favorite sessions are guided by nature.  I photograph a lot of families in the spring and summer blooms, and fall families depending on the change of the leaves on the trees.  I have no control over mother nature, therefore I am at her mercy when it comes to scheduling.  If you book a session that is dependent on the blooms, I will make sure from the start that you know the plan for when (typically within a limited time frame of blooming time).  Time of the day, on the other hand, is an easy call.  90% of my sessions are booked within 1-2 hours of sunrise or sunset.  I do have specific places that work for other times of the day, but for a general rule you can count on a golden hours session.

Q: Can I use my purchased digital images to make my own prints and albums?

A: Yes, absolutely! You have personal printing rights for the images you purchase and can print those files to your heart's desire. That being said, I would urge you to consider purchasing through me if you want the best product quality, and long term value. I use the best photo labs in the industry, and if you were to see the difference between the prints and products, it would be night and day. In fact, I'd be happy to show you! While it is completely optional, I would say if you've taken the time and care to book me (my clients care about their photos), you will be so satisfied with "bringing it all home" and seeing your custom art in high quality albums and prints.

Q: Do you offer payment plans?

A: For the digital packages, yes I do! My session fee of $200 is a non-refundable retainer which gets you a spot in my calendar (once you have that place I either must refuse or reschedule other inquiries, so that must be paid in full for your session to take place). However, I am happy to accept payment plans of any digital packages you order. The purchased images will be delivered once final payment is made

Q: what if we need to reschedule?

If for any reason we need to reschedule (weather, illness, family emergency etc) I will work with you to find a new date for your session as close to the original date as possible.  The rescheduled session must be rescheduled within 3 months of the original session, or an additional retainer fee will be required to re-book your session.

Q: How do I book you?
