Kelly Klein, Owner
I love getting to know my clients as we prepare for and shoot your session, so it's only fair you know some things about the person behind the camera as well!
-I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Steve, since 2001. I couldn’t ask for a more supportive partner in my life and in my business. He’s a mechanical engineer and can pretty much fix anything I break and build anything I can dream up. It doesn’t get much better than that!
-I’m the proud mom of Annie, Caroline and Theo. Annie graduated from University of Minnesota in December 2017 and is an editor at a book publishing company, Caroline attends Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island and Theo is in high school. They are VERY used to having their photo taken. :) We also have two sweet dogs, JJ and Chloe.
- I was a special education teacher for 11 years and I never imagined how much I’d be applying my teaching skills to my photography business, but all that patience, creativity and quick thinking has served me well in my photo sessions.
-My parents have both passed away and my sister, Wendy, who is deaf and cognitively delayed, has lived with me and my family since 2013. She is funny and sweet (and sometimes a challenge!) and she makes sure life is never boring!
-My passion for photography goes back many years, but it really snowballed after I got my first digital camera and didn’t have to worry about “wasting” film. When several friends started asking me to take photos for them and telling me I should consider a photography business, I finally decided to take the plunge in early 2010. I’m so thankful to every one of those people who encouraged me.
-When I’m not taking photos, I’m active in a book club and a gourmet dinner group and I love reading, biking, traveling, spending time with my family and friends and enjoying all of the wonderful seasons Wisconsin has to offer.
I would be delighted to meet you and capture YOUR precious moments! Call me today at 262-389-0601 or fill out the contact form and I'll respond to you promptly.
