Kelly and Her Camera — Family & Event Photography in Elmhurst, Illinois

Specializing in relaxed, fun, and authentic images that help retain important memories & connections from this beautiful life.

There are so many talented people in this world!  Especially photographers!  Such a wide variety of styles and perspectives, all brilliant, unique, and distinctive!  My photography style is comfortable, natural, flexible, and minimalist.  I bring my fancy camera (named Marki V), a step ladder (I’m 5’1″), and sometimes a blanket, but mostly, I wield my skills, experience, and perspective to focus on people, connection, and love. 

I find every single person beautiful (especially the crazy ones) and my goal is to freeze just a few wonderful moments for you and your people to have forever.  Whatever session type you choose, I take a spectrum of posed, candid, and natural photos that showcase the authentic, engaging, and amusing dynamic that shines from you (&  your people)  into the world.  

My 15 minute Quick Shots in Elmhurst are so efficient, convenient, and low-pressure that kids and teens (and dads) are always shocked that they are so painless!  Full Sessions are for people who want a leisurely session pace, more candids, a wider variety poses, or extended families.  My FAVORITES are Casual Events, things like anniversaries, special birthdays, informal weddings, reunions.

Settle in, peruse the site, check out my very random blog, and let me know when we can schedule something together!
