Photography has always been a passion of mine. When I sought out a name for my work, I had to search no further than my nickname. I have always been called kels/kelz from close friends. My maiden name begins with z and helped me to decide on Kelz Photography. 

each and every precious moment

As most things in my life, I strive on creating something from “nothing”.  While it be a coding or designing an html page starting with a blank page, to taking a picture from behind a lens. Each in their own way tells a story.


more this way

My husband and I recently moved with our two dogs to Charlotte, NC - from a suburb in the middle of Chicago & Milwaukee. We are enjoying everything that South has to offer from the crisp mountain air to the sounds of the waves along the shore. Follow our adventures on the blog as I rarely go anywhere without our cameras.

Kelz has always been a way to express my creative desires. I love to capture the little moments you might miss if you stick to posed shots.

Dog mama & wife with a passion for celebrating beautiful moments By Capturing them for all time.

About Kelly

hey beautiful

- Kathy a.

"Kelly made our sessions so relaxed, while being patient (super important for a photo shoot involving a toddler) and giving great direction for different poses or picture locations. And her finished work did not disappoint! She not only got our pictures back to us within a few days but in the exact the "look" and "style" I was looking to get. These are pictures I will cherish forever."

One day, all your children will have is pictures of you. Make sure you’re in them. No matter what your hair looks like, your makeup, or your body, they won’t care about any of that, they’ll just want to see you.
