As the owner of Kelley Stinson Photography, my sweet friend Kelley spends lots of time behind the camera. I often work as a second shooter for the weddings she photographs, helping her capture every moment. Working with Kelley is a great time so I was super excited when she asked me to take some headshots for her business. It’s always fun to put the photographer in front of the camera for a change! It is also the ultimate compliment when a fellow professional trusts you to take her photos. Kelley knew exactly what type of vibe she was going for. I took her headshots at Kellam Estate to capture a quintessential Southern feel.
It has been really wonderful getting to know Kelley over the years. Her sweet spirit really shines through in these photos. It is so cool when you can show off someone’s personality through a picture! Kelley is so much more than just someone I work with, she is a great friend and I am so fortunate to have her in my life. I’ve taken photos of her adorable family as well, and hanging out with the Stinson crew is always a good time.
The only downside to any of this is that Kelley is moving in June! I am so incredibly sad that she won’t be living nearby any longer. Fortunately she is coming back to Virginia Beach to photograph some weddings that I will be assisting her with. I hope she continues to do that… until forever? I may have to convince her somehow. Anyway, Kellam Estate is freaking gorgeous. The huge, historic home offers a beautiful landscape to explore. We had a great time together as always, and now Kelley has some fresh new headshots to use for her business.
