Hi there! I’m Kelly McPhail - a family photographer in Lafayette, Indiana. I’m so glad that you’ve found my page! For more than 15 years, I have enjoyed photographing families, babies, children and have realized that we are all the same... our family, loved ones and friends are the most important treasures in our lives. Having favorite photos of these loved ones are some of our most valued possessions!
This past year, I felt led to turn this passion into something more substantial and launched Kelly McPhail Photography in September 2018.
Can I tell you what was the biggest motivator that finally launched me into business? A little girl named Mackenzie. My dear friend LeeAnn called me up in early August and asked me to take family photos before their 6 month-old daughter Mackenzie’s open heart surgery. Teary-eyed she shared that she wanted to have the photos in case Mackenzie didn’t make it through the surgery. After their super fun photoshoot, LeeAnn looked over the pictures and expressed how meaningful it was to have these images. It was then that I decided it was time to go after this dream of mine and bless others through photography.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope to have the opportunity to capture memories and milestones for you and your family in the near future!
I love soft natural light, particularly golden hour sunlight.
My aim is to capture real, tangible emotion and connection. Posed family photos are great, but I believe the best photographs come from "unposing"!
My photography style draws on rich colors and contrast, which best highlight the love and connection in your family.
My goal is not "picture perfect" but rather to capture perfectly the and love and connection felt between family so that it can be savored and remembered for years to come.
