“I want to see myself in a different way.”

This beautiful woman is a July baby (summer like me!) and currently lives in New Fairfield CT with her husband of 9 years although they are high school sweethearts- so they’ve actually been together for 19! Together Kelly and her husband have a beautiful 6 year old daughter and a 4 year old son.

Kelly is a waxing specialist who is living her dream by owning her own salon which just became a reality this past year!

When she isn’t engulfed in the hustle and bustle of entrepreneurship, Kelly enjoys having lunch with friends, shopping or going to the park with the kids (primarily family time). To her, relaxing is snuggled up with the kids watching tv. (She really loves the Chicago series!) Kelly is a tea drinker and her all time favorite meal is spaghetti.

What brought Kelly into the studio was my 30-Women-Over-30 portrait series. She’s never been comfortable in a 2 piece and is very self conscious of her stomach and legs- but she is working on looking past that and loving herself - every single part of her. She wants to see herself in a different way and she wants to know that she can be and IS sexy. Sometimes seeing yourself through someone elses eyes (like my lens) is just what you need to realize your beauty.
