Hi! I’m Kelly Shakespeare and I believe that a well-captured photo is about bringing joy into lives and real feelings into your memories. So that’s what I’m here to do – create beautiful photographs of your moments so you can relive them over and over.
I live in Lincoln, Canterbury with my Art Director husband (yes we do have lots of interesting conversations/debates over art, design and photography), our two beautiful little girls, one dog and two guinea pigs. I have been photo obsessed my. entire. life. I really, reeeally love photos.
I vividly remember the moment when photography first blew my mind. I was shooting a couple of frames of my little brother on Mum and Dad’s film camera. He was on his bike riding around our driveway when he rode through a patch of yummy golden afternoon light and threw his head back, grinning at the same time - I flukily pushed the shutter at the right moment and got it on film. I remember the complete exhilaration at the thought that I had GOT that. His happy little moment was forever captured on a little piece of plastic film.
Since then I’ve been hooked...and Mum and Dad have displayed that photo on their mantlepiece! There’s nothing else for me - photography is my thing.
I’m inspired by life as it is. Emotions are my absolute favourite, which is why I’m happiest shooting weddings and families. I get to give people beautiful images of the special moments in their lives and nothing makes me happier. I’d love to give YOU and your family photos to treasure forever... if you’d like that too then just get in touch. I’d love to hear from you!
I am passionate, hardworking and creative. I’ll strive to give you stunning photos, great memories and a fun experience.
