There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.” — Robert Frank

Whether it is love and laughter or the serious moments of personal crisis, she turns her lens towards her subjects with passion, understanding and commitment to telling their stories.

Kelly’s love of documentary photography carries over into her work and a family and wedding photographer where she is sought after to capture the emotional connection between her clients. Creativity has always played a key part in Kelly’s life.

Her love of art and photography led to Kelly graduating from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Visual Arts. She has a background in a variety of visual arts including painting and illustration. Kelly is currently enjoying combining her love of painting with photography, creating new and exciting pieces of art for her clients.
