As Principal Photographer at Kelly Ewell Photography, I could sound very official and tell you all about how I went to school for photography and the history of my accomplishments.
But when you hire a portrait or wedding photographer you’re not just buying into a skill or a style that you see on a website, you’re also buying that person – skills, style, personality, and all – as someone who will work with you to capture images during an important day or time of your life.
So let’s push stuffy aside and instead highlight who I am a little bit differently.
I know: everything happens for a reason
I like: a good Cosmopolitan, Bulgari perfume, Asiatic lilies
I love: my husband, Saturdays, chocolate, with all my heart
I have: lots of lists, closets organized by color, Richmond Spider pride
I laugh: freely and with abandon
I think: a lot
I splurge: on raspberry merlot wine, Williams Sonoma Fleur de Sel soaps
I value: honesty, hard work, a good mani/pedi
I crave: Cheetos once every few years
I worked: at NFL Films, at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, at a library
as my very first job when I was 14
I want: to visit Paris, to catch up on all the TV shows in my DVR, unlimited spending at J.Crew and Crate & Barrel
I wish: I wasn’t my own worst critic, I liked to cook, I wasn’t so ghostly pale, for more wishes
I dislike: the smell of tuna, horror films, most things old or antique, how bad my penmanship has become
I always: overanalyze, have a Thomas’ Lite Multi-Grain English Muffin for breakfast
I wonder: what goes on in my dog’s head, what life holds for me, why people thought 80s hair was a good idea
I sing: poorly but often
I am not: a morning person, very competitive
I forget: things rarely
I look: before I leap, pretty put together on most days, forward to all the new introductions I still have to make
I am: me
If you can relate to any of this, let’s chat! Whether it’s lunch, coffee, email, Skype, or the old-fashioned phone call, let’s talk about what kind of photography experience we can create together.
