Hello friends!  Thanks for taking a look around here! I'm Kelly, from Kelly Ann 3 Photography, and I truly love taking pictures!  I have been a professional photographer for 5 years, but I've had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember.  The art of photography is an evolution of so many years of learning, practice and experience.  I have been trained and mentored with some of the best photographers in our industry, and continue to learn new information, and techniques daily.  I anticipate that my portraits and business will grow and improve every year.  If asked if I have a favorite photo that I've taken, I'd probably answer with "the next one that I take will always be my favorite."  Looking to improve each shot that I take keeps me creative and motivated to always do better the next time I pick up my camera.


I truly feel that photos are the way to tell your story.  What was happening in your life at that moment.  I'd love to be a part of capturing those exact moments for you to look back at many years from now.  I'd like to guide you in printing them for exactly what you want to use them for, to keep them available to enjoy every day!


I am currently living in Durham, NC, and moved here from a 7 year stay in Kingman, AZ...A far different environment than where I grew up in Western NY.  The beauty I found in moving to Kingman is just amazing to photograph.  There are so many gorgeous and inspiring places!  I am convinced that the 7 years that we lived in the desert made me a far better photographer, pushing me to see new beauty, lighting, color and creating a far more challenging place to push myself.  Since relocating back east, I am so excited to continue my learning and growth in the much greener surroundings.  When asked I certainly will travel back west for sessions and keep my desert photography skills fine tuned.
