about

webfamilyAs a photographer, my ultimate goal is to capture the feel of your special moments.  I aim to capture the love and playfulness of family, the beauty of a mommy-to-be, and (when I have the honor) the most intimate first hours of a baby’s life.  I encourage all my clients to share their personal vision or expectations ahead of time so we can custom tailor a session to best meet your needs.  The most important thing to me is that you love your photos!

I was born and raised in New Hampshire by the most loving and supportive parents who are continuously there for me through all walks of life.  At age 19 I spent two years traveling alone across 10 European countries where I met many inspiring people, saw incredible things and was challenged far beyond my expectations.  I studied web programming and accounting in college and have lived in 6 different states along the east coast and throughout the Midwest where I have made lifetime friends.  I was lucky enough to marry my best friend and give birth to three beautiful daughters, each of them bursting with personality.  My family is my everything.

I fell in love with photography in high school originally learning on a 35mm and developing in a dark room.  I switched to digital photography several years ago and then in August of 2010 Kelly A Read Photography was born.  I used to say being a photographer would be my dream job and with the support of my friends and family, especially my husband, it has become a reality.  I absolutely LOVE my job!
