Kelli did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable in her studio.  We absolutely loved the photos of our newborn baby girl!

Thanks Kelli

“Each time I look at the photos from my session with Kelli I am awestruck by her talent. She guided me gently and thoughtfully throughout the shoot, and had endless great ideas about how best to capture me and my fiddle. On the day of the session, I had received some very upsetting news and was not feeling particularly cheerful: yet Kelli is so warm and compassionate that she was able to bring a smile to my face along with a few good belly laughs. She is eminently professional, and she has a magical way of making each image compelling. The photographs are absolutely perfect!”

When I found out I was pregnant, I e-mailed many, many places to set up something for photos.  Kelli always responded quickly, and with the information I needed/wanted.

When we took my pregnancy photos she was amazing (Well she’s always been amazing).  When I saw the photos in her studio they made me cry. When I look at them now they bring me right back to when I was pregnant.

After my daughter was born, we went back. And it was so much fun. It was so relaxing, enjoyable. There was no rush at all. And lots, and lots of photos to choose from.

When my daughter was upset, she was so great, and kind. She let us go with no worries, and let us rebook another appointment, Wonderful Wonderful.

Kelli Etheridge is now the only person I want to do photos. Her style is great. She is a great relaxed person. I’ve never, ever felt rushed by her. And I feel like I am a part of her family, so SHE wants to get the best photos there are. It is just great.

Thank you Kelli for the amazing photos. I couldn’t be happier with them.  Thank you for taking me back to those moments when I look at these photos.

We are truly fortunate to have found Kelli Etheridge.   When our little girl was 10 days old, 6 months old and 1 year old, Kelli was able  to capture so many of the facial expressions and poses that we saw everyday in our growing little girl.  I’m elated that now we will always be able to remember those images with Kelli’s pictures.  I would recommend, and have recommended, Kelli to anyone. She is creative and professional.  We’ll see you again Kelli at the next milestone!

Kelli Etheridge is an extremely talented photographer. She has taken photos of my wedding, family reunions, pregnancies, birth, and of my children.  Every time one of my friends has a baby I buy them studio time with Kelli and they have all told me that they appreciate that gift more than any other. Her images have such an intimate soft quality that I have never seen before. I will be using Kelli & her talent for photography for every special event in my life, as well as all the stages of my children’s lives. I am truly fortunate to have found Kelli & I would recommend her to anyone.

We enjoyed our experience with Kelli because of her relaxed approach and professionalism. She is extremely open to ideas and experienced in the challenges of working with young children.  We have been to Kelli three times to date to chart  the stages of our children and will continue  into the future.  We would both recommend Kelli’s services highly – her prices are reasonable, her photos are unique and modern,  and her new studio is top of the line.

“We really enjoyed our experience with Kelli because she instantly puts you at ease with her warm and welcoming smile while at the same time you feel reassured that you have indeed made the right choice in photographers.  Kelli is a true professional.  She was able to capture those amazing natural shots that are the essence of what we are all about, images that we will cherish for a lifetime.  We are forever indebted to Kelli for providing us with these unforgettable memories. 
Thank you Kelli!”
