Soft fur, bewhiskered kisses that make your nose tickle, or those soulful eyes that understand when you're feeling low and know just how to make you smile.
Remember when your brand new rug was mistaken for a puppy pad? Or when your gentle giant of a horse stepped on your foot by accident? When you look back on these memories - they will make you smile, even laugh at the chaos and adventure animals brought into your life.
Ever wish the photos on your wall captured the beauty you see in the souls of your pets every day?
I'm Kelly, and I create photographs of your heart-horses and canine kindred sprits that will give you all the feels, that warm glow in your chest that reminds you of what life with animals is really like.
A dog nerd my whole life, I've also been a photographer for over 2 decades, specializing in wildlife and natural light photography.
Before opening my own business, I dedicated over 20 years to the wildlife conservation field. Despite working with some of the rarest animals on the planet, I have always found myself returning to my first animal loves — dogs and horses.
When I'm not working or being a mom to my own rescue pups, I actively volunteer with local dog rescues around the Houston area.
Kelly is very professional, has good taste, and has a special talent for bringing out the unique personality of her subjects with great insight and sensitivity. She is easy to work with and kind and loving with the animals. A photo session with Kelly is a real treat and the results are remarkable. We very highly recommend her. So does our dog.
Kelly is such an amazingly talented and creative photographer. Her love and knowledge of animals are evident in getting our dogs to be calm in order to capture the best pictures of them. The hardest part was deciding which picture was our favorite!
As someone who had never done professional animal photography before I was excited. Kelly exceeded my expectations! What a great way to capture the personalities and details of my horses.
Husband - Anthony
Dog wrangler, horse-ear-perker-upper, studio-set-up-expert — this guy does it all. You might not see him at every photo session, but when you do you know things will run smoothly! (Also, the only piece of camera gear we have trouble with is a selfie-stick!)
Chief Barking Manager
Bonnie Belle is the matriarch of our crew and our go-to ambassador for all external client relations and meetings.
Head of Squirrel Relations
Harriet has been with the company for over 10 years. Her duties include keeping the yard safe from squirrel interlopers and comic relief.
Junior Pawject Manager
Toby joined the team as a pandemic pup add-on in 2020. His main duties include alerting the entire household when deliveries arrive.
The newest addition to our team, Winston joined our family in late 2020. Highly curious and with no sense of personal space, he's still learning the daily routine of our business.
A nap on a cold, cloudy afternoon after reading a good book with all my dogs around me. Or a day spent on a long trail hike with Anthony and the dogs.
Camera gear. Always camera gear!
Hands down, it's my husband Anthony. He's been my rock, motivational coach, and my greatest supporter, always.
I've been told I am extremely calm under pressure!
Dahlias are my favorite! No two are alike.
I collect feathers, usually found when I'm out hiking with my dogs. I also tend to collect stray dogs and camera gear.
Chill Out Radio when I'm editing photos. The 80s channel the rest of the time.
I'm not a coffee drinker, so I'll always order a hot chocolate instead. Beyond that, lemonade or Cherry Coke Zero is where it's at.
A successful portrait session is an investment in both time and money, so it's important to make the right choice for yourself. To schedule a time to talk, send me a message using my Contact Form.
