Welcome to my blog. I’m Calli Kennedy; a happy wife and a mother of a beautiful daughter. My photography style is natural light inspired by God, family, and love.

Unlike most high school seniors, the class of 2020 did not get to experience those final months that we all remember due to Covid-19. They did not get to go to prom, share a senior skip day, or attend final […]
