When I think about the qualities of a #kelsielynnbride, there are way too many to count. However, if you’re recently engaged…

Although it has been a few months since I last shared a personal post about my eyes, a LOT has happened since then!! I figured that the best way to share this news was to start from the beginning.

Thanks Monica Brown for taking this behind the scenes shot!! Ever since I can remember, I’ve been interested in photography.

I am so incredibly thankful for the creative gifts I’ve been given. But let’s be real, I wouldn’t be able to do any of this if it weren’t for Jesus. Do you know why? I am a creative because He is the ultimate creator. I am a child of God and was created in His […]

As a photographer, I am hired to take pictures. But really, it’s more than that. At the end of the day, I want all of my clients to feel loved.
