Photographers of the Month

Kelly Davis and Brooke Wright

Here is what Kelly has to say about herself and the work she does with her sister, Brooke:

I have three young boys that keep me busy most of the time! I fell in love with capturing memories of my first son 6 years ago and it just continued on from there.  When I bought my first DSLR the Nikon 3200 it was great feeling to own my first professional camera. I wanted to do more with what I began learning in the first years through group lessons and self taught google searches so I began offering my photography services out to other moms I knew.  In my home I set up a mini photography studio, not knowing much, but pushed forward with one main confidence and that was loving children.  I had a small clientele of family and friends.  A few years later, my sister Brooke, joined my small venture and with that I went on to buy my Nikon D750.  I realized that with families with multiple children the photography session also needed another hand to deal with the chaos and uncertainty of children's demeanor.  I am slowly teaching Brooke the knowledge behind the camera to become a second shooter.  And with that, we as a team have had one on one lessons with Owen.  It has been a fun experience learning from Owen.  We first met at a beautiful garden, then Swathmore college and then delved into exposure and  architecture.  We recently had a an in-home lesson on studio lighting.  The wealth of knowledge Owen has to offer a striving photographer is never ending. Brooke and I are successfully running a photography business that specializes in portrait, family and newborn photography.  www.kellydavisphotos.com
