Contributor: Kelley Deal

I'm Kelley Deal, a 31 year old freelance photographer and environmental graphic designer in North Carolina, by way of Texas, Ohio, and most recently Chicago, IL. I was a bride, I am an aunt, and will forever be a traveler. Those experiences shape the way I treat my clients and approach my work. I focus on artistic, honest photography of life, love and places. My goal with every shoot is to tell a story - the real moments are my favorite. I love all things creative - I've grown up painting, sculpting, and designing, and believe that no matter the medium, it comes down to the same basics : color, composition, and light. I've learned that photographs give life to the legacy we leave behind, and they deserve as much depth and heart as possible.
