the experience

It's important to know that while I do get the typical "holiday card" posed shots, the majority of your gallery will be the shots of you interacting with one another, laughing, playing and enjoying your time together. Kids are expected to be goofy and wild, that's what I love the most. I don't expect them to sit still or to listen, I want them to be their true selves and that is all I need to be able to capture your family how you are naturally.

My sessions are all about connection, the often missed candid moments between poses and capturing the often wild and carefree interactions between loved ones. My goal is to catch the truly real and authentic moments, when you're focusing on each other without any distractions to create memories that last.

My goal is to embrace the beauty in the chaos and capture memories that will last a lifetime

questions

Frequently asked

Is there a retainer fee to book?

Yes, all sessions require a $50 non-refundable retainer and a signed contract in order to hold your date and session time. The remaining balance is due the day of the shoot. Contract and invoices will be signed and paid electronically.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY SHOOT?

Luckily, styling help is part of what I offer and I love it! Once you book a session with me, I will send you an email with a Styling Guide & FAQ. It has a ton of information to help you style for your session, along with recommended places to shop. I also offer a client closet that you can borrow items from for your session, that way you get gorgeous clothing and accessories without needing to stress about coordinating outfits or going shopping.

WHAT ARE YOUR TRAVEL FEES?

My travel fee is .65c per mile for anything farther than 15 minutes from Delaware, Ohio. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE TO CANCEL?

Cancellation from the client for any reason forfeits the retainer fee. If cancellation is within 24 hours of the session, the entire payment is forfeited. Rescheduling is a $50 fee. 

WHAT IF THERE'S BAD WEATHER?

If it is raining or there are unsafe weather conditions, then I will reschedule on a case by case basis. I can't control mother nature, so sometimes rescheduling is necessary but for the most part I try not to reschedule unless its absolutely necessary.

What is your turnaround time?

My turnaround time is a maximum of 2 weeks. I always try to deliver galleries sooner, but it is also something that I don't like to rush. During my fall busy season it may take up to three weeks.

How will I receive my images?

Your images will be delivered in an online gallery where you will be able to view and download high-resolution images that are meant for printing along with web-sized images which are perfect for sharing on social media.

HOW DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENTS?

All payments go through by online booking system for tax purposes. You can pay with a debit or credit card. 

What types of sessions do you offer?

I primarily offer family, maternity, milestone and couples/engagement sessions. I also offer lifestyle newborn sessions and will do one or two weddings each year. If you're interested in more info regarding a specific type of session, please reach out to me! 

How do I book a session?

There are several ways you can schedule a session. You can reach out to me on here directly through my website, send me an email at kelsey@kelseyallenphotography.com or you can message me on my facebook page.

Kelsey was so fun to work with. Will definitely do future pictures with her. She did an AMAZING job!! You would never know it was windy and freezing the day the pictures were taken. Her editing, phenomenal! Can’t thank her enough!
-Kellie

"Above and beyond our wildest expectations."

Blake + Allie

We had an uncommon request, hoping that she would photograph our wedding 3 hours away from home, and she went above and beyond capturing the moment for us. We are so thankful for it! We have used her for 3 separate photo shoots and every time she has exceeded our already high expectations
 of her. 10 out of 10 would recommend!

"Above and beyond our wildest expectations."
