meet Kelly
Kelly Sutton is a Southern California native, raising her two young boys, alongside her partner-in-crime and husband, Christopher, in the same neighborhood in which she, herself, grew up. As a former Middle School teacher, Kelly now spends her days as a natural light photographer, and has fallen in love with capturing the beauty and honesty of everyday life. She strives to document the reality of life with children with authenticity and emotion; as well as, the humor, adventures, and non-stop energy that come with being a mom to two young boys. Sometimes she takes photos for other families, too, but most often you can find her following her children around with her camera in one hand, coffee in another.
