Kelly Mooney Photography
It’s not about the camera.
With today’s technology, the snap of any shutter can result in a pretty picture. But creating images that capture a person or brand’s authentic presence isn’t about technical skill as much as it is about human connection.
I am a storyteller first and foremost. Before I became a photographer, I spent 17 years as the owner of a PR & marketing firm, telling my clients’ stories and getting them covered by high-profile media outlets including The Today Show, Oprah, The Wall St Journal, and USA Today, among others. My job then – as it is now – is to identify and focus on what made my clients unique enough to stand out from the crowd.
Today, my trusty Nikon D850 is my tool of choice for telling stories — stories that I’ve studied prior to each session so I can create a library of photos that stand out, grab attention and even inspire action.
When I’m not shooting in my sun-drenched studio on Oregon City’s historic Main Street, I’m on location helping my clients craft contemporary, branded images to help grow their bottom line.
I laugh a lot. I work a little too much. And I love creating a safe, relaxing and FUN experience for people who are not accustomed to being in front of the lens.
