Hi, I'm Kelsey!
I believe that to create our best work together, we should know what makes each other tick. I'll start!
My partner, Evan, and I share a <100 square foot 1964 Airstream Globetrotter that we carefully renovated as part of our dynamic home space. We have two dogs (Dougie & Spork), five chickens (Lola, Susie Q, Mrs. Robinson, Billy Jean & Mustang Sally), and plant babies abound (indoor and outdoor).
After growing up in west Sonoma County, I moved away for about ten years to earn my BFA in Photography, travel to every contiguous state in a van with my bestie, nest in Portland, then Truckee, before landing back in Sonoma County in 2019. During that time, I realized my passion for food systems and small scale producers and growers via my work with the Tahoe Food Hub and FEED Cooperative. My heart will always be part of our local food system and my previous work has informed my priorities as a photographer profoundly.
Through it all, I was always taking pictures. It's my true passion and enables me to weave everything I care about together – my love of people watching, for seeing the sweetness in everyone, for lifting them up and making them feel like the beautiful humans they are, for championing small businesses, for cultivating and tending community, and so much more. When I'm taking pictures, everything in my world fits together. I'm so thrilled to join the ranks as a small business owner, to capture love for a living, and to help those around me create their visions.
I can't wait to hear your story.
