& north fork

portrait photographer

Whether we’re designing an album or a series of beautifully framed prints that will adorn your walls for years to come, I always have the finished product in mind.

High-end, custom and hand-finished artwork is my specialty. Together we will create the kind of pieces that will be woven into the fabric of your home and stand the test of time. Enjoy catching a glimpse of them as your kids run down the stairs, when you pile on the couch for movie night, or while you sit sipping your favorite beverage at the end of the day.

I believe in creating images that are begging to be printed. 

my philosophy

As the saying goes, the days are long, but the years are short. How many images have you snapped only to scroll past them, eventually losing track of what device they were on in the first place? What we create together are portraits, designed with permanence in mind.

let's get started

Born and raised in Louisiana, love is what brought me to Long Island. My husband Danny is a North Fork native and for the past 20 years we have been building a life we love on the East End. Two houses and three kids later, we’ve settled in the charming hamlet of Speonk and I can’t imagine raising our family anywhere else.

Being a mama and a business owner are immensely important aspects of who I am. No other roles have been as challenging or rewarding.”

“We have been doing family photos for years and have never felt more like ourselves than we did with Kelli.”

fundraiser & Volunteer

Each summer I volunteer at East End Hospice’s Camp Good Grief, a bereavement camp for grieving children and teenagers. In 2021 I hosted my inaugural “Return the Smiles” event which raised $1,000 for the cause which sent four children to Camp for a full day of fun and guidance.
