SO HAPPY TO MEET YOU

Hi, I'm Kelly Peterson!

I consider my style to have a simple foundation yet provides a more authentic and aesthetic look through the lens. I take all my clients' wishes and choices seriously while cultivating an easy-going atmosphere that is enjoyable to be in.

 

Capturing the joys of life has been a passion of mine since I was young. I would ask to borrow my parents' cameras, snap pictures on my old iPod, and download free editing apps. It was even my job to set up the tripod to get family pictures. My dad was the ultimate memory catcher who organized all our photos and created priceless photobooks. He was always ahead of his time in technology who extremely valued his time with family and wanted us to know that our lives were full of adventure. I lost him in 2020. I feel so grateful to dedicate a career to capturing memories forever. Funny enough, my high school peers had foreseen my talent and drive by voting me as "Photographer of the Year." Here I am, hundreds of sessions later, living the dream!

Currently, I am a resident in the Firestone and Longmont area, but I have a large radius of opportunity for those interested. I visit Fort Collins and Boulder regularly, strolling through the ol' Firehouse Bookstore and Pearl Street Gelato Boy (ice cream is my go-to). Plus, I get to visit my mom and sister who fill my bucket it up. As a high school teacher, connecting with my community is also a priority of mine. It's an absolute joy to meet new students and kiddos.

 

I love this job because I get to do my favorite things: hang out with people and enjoy our planet. Living it up in sweet mountain locations or putting my shoes to the test in the meadows is my idea of a good time. I see so much beauty in this world, including every client in front of me. I'll help you pose the whole time while using lighting, emotions, and the background to create a stunning gallery of pictures you get to download. Thanks to you, I even get to drag my fiancé into escapades with me. Having a photoshoot in Estes is the best excuse to go visit our wedding venue. Our poor Holly girl doesn't get to come, but she knows a walk awaits her when we get back. 

My other specialty is graphic design which revolves around my past position at Colorado State University. Go Rams! It was happily my role to help redesign the Construction Management Department's look. My mission is to provide balanced and engaging layouts that catch your eyes, draw you in, and clearly communicate. Your collateral deserves to shine and I've got the (creative and tech-savvy) trained eye that delivers just that.

To sum it up, I care about family, Colorado, teaching, learning, social justice, and art! Let me help you make your personality and passions memorable for yourself and others.

Kelly is phenomenal! She is not only the sweetest person and such a gem but extremely talented! Her photos are very professional and excellent quality! She gets the best shots and great candid photos that really help you remember your day! I loved every photo she took. It helped show me how not only how I remember that day but all the emotions of everyone who attended my wedding which is amazing! I couldn’t recommend her more!

Kelly was phenomenal. Not only did she do an amazing job helping us capture beautiful baby photos of our newborn, she also was very honest and easy to work with throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend Kelly to anyone wanting to memorialize any special moments.

Kelly responded right away and answered all of our questions. She worked around our schedule and specific requests. Her pricing is very reasonable compared to other studios and her portfolio is excellent!

Kelly photographed our 50th wedding anniversary, which included a small backyard ceremony with family and a larger “Dancing in the Street” party with friends. I asked her to primarily take candids since It was during COVID and I didn’t want anyone to feel as if they needed to pose with others. Kelly captured the joy of the event and the enjoyment of those who attended. She listened well and responded perfectly. I highly recommend her.

We had such a great experience with Kelly. She had all seven of us relaxed, comfortable and ready to take pictures. They turned out great despite the cold day and we are looking forward to our next shoot with added family members!!
