Hi, I am Kelsey Dralle.
The quote you saw on my home page is one of my favorites, and is from one of my idols. It also happens to fit my outlook on photography extremely well. I fall in love in one way or another with all of my clients, and hope to give them the best possible outcome of their session.
I became interested in photography at a very young age. I took my first photography course as a first grader through 4-H. Instantly HOOKED! I've been taking photos ever since. I even took film classes in college to help with my subject material and composition. When a friend got married and thought my photos turned out better than her professional photographer, I decided to go into business! That was in 2015 and it's been the best decision I ever made (well....except maybe marrying my husband, depending on the day HA!).
When I’m not happily snapping photos, I am enjoying time with my husband, Andy, and our two labs - Nala and Jet- who keep us on our toes! I’m a major dork, love musical theater, and am a serious Disney freak. (Seriously, don't even get me started, we'll never stop talking about it!)
But, that's one of the big reasons why I love themed photo shoots! I want to celebrate whatever makes you nerdy, geeky, original, creative, and artsy. From cute newborns and casual family portraits to showing off your cosplay outfit or collection of vintage dresses, you deserve photos that capture what makes you unique!
That brings us to you and your session. Emphasis on YOU. This is your day, your session, your moment. There will be no stiff, formal poses with forced smiles (unless this is an 80s photo remake, because those are wonderfully posed)! Our time together will be completely chill. When you feel relaxed, you look relaxed!
I can't wait to get to know you! Let’s sit down and figure out ways to create a memorable photo keepsake!
“Kelsey is incredible. We had our engagement session on a beautiful winter day and hiked through some serious snow. She had such a positive attitude and made it so much fun! Our pictures turned out beautiful and we cannot wait to spend our wedding day with her!”
