When Kelly Sets Down Her Camera

I don't ALWAYS have my camera with me...

Yes, my name rhymes… Kelly Vallicelli (Vall-a-chelly).  I am like the modern Amelia Bedelia or Julia Guglia from Wedding Singer (which coincidentally debuted right around our wedding).  At first I couldn’t even introduce myself without laughing, but at this point, I am barely ever referred to by “Kelly”.  It is all one word… Kellyvallicelli.  Often shouted in a sing-songy tone from across very crowded sporting events.

I can’t write anything about my husband without it sounding like a cheesy Hallmark card, but let it suffice to say that he is my soulmate on a million levels and supports Kelcam like crazy.  We have a couple of (squirrely) teenagers.  Our boy is bright, funny, sporty, and a realist.  He is often with a team of kids, playing some kind of ball, or chilling with the x-Box One (but helps me with the photo editing when I am over-whelmed or stuck).  Our daughter is kind, loves to read, ride her bike, and anything non-competitive.  She is usually surrounded by laughter, a pile of pillows, on stage crew, or watching Netflix, but will come to events with me if I need extra help—and historical data suggests that you will love her and want her to stay long after I leave.

Since my kids were born, I have always worked part-time (both from home and in the office)—at the same company but in a variety of roles.  Lots of accounting and software development and process control… it pays the bills, and I love the people, but Kelcam fulfills a necessary void for connection and creativity that was missing.

I love travel (more about that in the blog & on the road), reading, yoga, walks, and eating at non-chain restaurants.  A wide variety of music is almost always on in our house.  My favorite color is a rainbow.  I love red wine and decaf coffee with 4 creams (no sugar).  I love sunrises and sunsets and manicured gardens and wild forests and clear saltwater and controlled fire.  We have a lot of wonderful parties at our house with family and friends that have become family.

Lastly, I love meeting people!  I look forward to getting to know you!  And your family and friends (even especially the crazy ones)!  And what makes you connect and laugh and light-up!  OH!  And on the topic of love!  The heart in my logo was drawn by my daughter on our old blacktop driveway back when she was in first grade; this is the sincere, kind, simple, bright, and honest lens through which I strive to view people, nature, and the world…

In real life... we love adventures... both near and afar...
