Clearly, you don't follow directions now that you've clicked the "do not click" menu item. And that's totally cool.

You'll fit right in here.

Most of my people lean towards the trouble making side of the spectrum.

Which is why I love photographing people, not real estate or stock photography of objects for sale.

I like subjects who talk back!

I enjoy conversations with folks who share what sets their souls on fire. Who they love and why. I love documenting days that go by in the blink of an eye. And I work hard to make it an easy and enjoyable experience for those who detest stepping in front of the camera, but find headshots to be a necessary evil (or family portraits...can we say Dads who don't want to be there or Moms who think a little extra love on the hips make them less worthy of existing in photographs?).

The normal photography categories are families, high school seniors, engagements, weddings, maternity, births + newborns, headshots, or commercial branding. But for me, it's not the categories I specialize in.

It's the people. It's always been the people.

These are my people.

Kelley recently took headshots for me and helped me narrow down to the perfect shot! It was easy, painless, and super efficient. Kelley knows how to make you feel relaxed while positioning yourself for the best photo. The best part for me: adding keywords for digital marketing and formatting for each application (LinkedIn, FB, website). All come saved and labeled in a zip file ready to launch! Kelley even gives you the shot you need with white space for adding copy. All this attention to detail just for headshots- imagine what she does for an event or boudoir shoot!

We had a beach photo session with Kelley. She was so patient and professional with our crazy crew of kids, friends, boyfriend, and doggie! She made it a ton of fun. We were amazed at the beautiful eye she has for capturing everyone's spirit in pictures. I would highly recommend her for any photo needs you have!

Kelley was amazing! Not only was she very personable, she was very professional. She took pictures of our combined families (8 plus a newborn) and they were amazing ... Working with that many people plus a newborn was probably challenging; However, she made this experience very memorable and you can tell by the pictures that she took. I now have a beautiful metal portrait of my family and a photo album with many beautiful pictures. Thanks so much Kelley ... We all really appreciate you!

Kelley!

Perfect - how we connected with you.

Perfect - your vision of the day.

Perfect - how you were simultaneously invisible and part of the fabric of the weekend indelibly.

Perfect - how your art captured it all.

Grateful - we are!

I met Kelley through my best friend for her wedding so when I came time to find a photographer for my wedding I knew i would call Kelley ASAP. I am 7 months pregnant and made me look like a badass mama in all my wedding shots! She captured exactly what I wanted. Her attention to detail is amazing. She listened and she delivered! I HIGHLY recommend her!

My family and I had photos taken by Pear Tree Photography Atlanta two separate times and both experiences were amazing! We had family photos taken at a local park and they turned out beautiful. I cannot say enough good things about Kelley. She really has an eye for great unique shots. She is also fabulous with kids in getting them comfortable with her. We get so many compliments on our family pictures that we have hanging in our home. We also had a lifestyle shoot done at our home just days after we had twin boys. These photos are incredible. She was able to capture our everyday moments with our children in a beautiful way. These are all photos that we will forever cherish. Pear Tree Photography Atlanta truly is top notch!!!

Kelley is an amazingly talented photographer!! She did my senior pictures in high school, my engagement photos 5 years later, and then my wedding photos a year after that! She is fabulous and always makes you feel so comfortable. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would!!

Kelley has photographed our family for the past few years. We feel so lucky to have found her and cherish the memories she has created of our kids as they grow ever larger. Every photograph we display reminds us of a fun time we spent together with her, rather than a stressful afternoon in a portrait studio. I love the personal attention she provides with bringing the slideshow of the images to our home (or once to my work so I could look while on a lunch break!) and helping us select.

I highly recommend Kelley, the owner of Pear Tree Photography Atlanta, as your photographer for all your photography needs. She took my daughter's senior pictures in and around Tampa. Rather than a session, Kelley made it an experience. She asked me to send her some ideas for the shoot (we preferred downtown backdrops). She took that information, added her artistry and eye for lines, color, and space, and made pieces of art. We were thrilled. Thank you Kelley for memorializing my daughter's achievements in such a beautiful way.

Very professional, prompt and patient. The photos are top quality. Thank you so much! My website looks great! I would recommend Pear Tree Photography Atlanta for all your photography needs!

We've had multiple sessions with Kelley. Each time she has gone out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. She went above and beyond asking questions to ensure she was capturing moments that we would treasure forever. Her thoughtfulness, keen eye, artistry, and love is evident in each photo and every minute spent with her. I wish I could give a hundred stars. I cannot sing praises high enough to truly exemplify the happiness I have in my heart for having Kelley at Pear Tree Photography Atlanta document the adventure that is life.

My fiancé and I were extremely pleased with our engagement photos taken by Kelley at Pear Tree Photography! During the shoot, I commented “I hope there’s one we’ll love”, and when we got our photos back, it took us over an hour to narrow it down to our top 20 for a photo album. She is an excellent communicator, is a genuine person, and is a truly passionate photographer. And, she’s phenomenal at what she does - so much so that we’ve booked her for our 2018 wedding! Highly recommend!!

I love the experience that my boyfriend and I shared with Kelley for our anniversary session. She made us feel at ease and we actually had fun, which knowing me and Michael, taking pictures is not something we do for fun and tend to enjoy. Kelley brought out the best in us, we were laughing and smiling naturally, and our love was so evident in every photo. I would highly recommend her for any occasion and you won't be disappointed! Thank you again Kelley for such a wonderful time and memories.

Kelley is an extremely talented and professional photographer who goes above and beyond for her clients! She traveled with us for our destination wedding in the Dominican Republic and perfectly captured our wed-cation! She had our photos back to us within two weeks, and even created a video compilation of our pictures and custom photo box and USB with all the images, which she delivered in person! She is a class act with one of a kind talent!

As a fellow photographer, I am far more comfortable behind the lens, than in front of it. I warned Kelley that she would have her work cut out for her, as I was sure to be awkward. From the start, she put us at ease. Kelley has a gift in getting her subjects to relax and just have fun. The entire session felt like a giant play date. In the process, she captured some truly beautiful moments between my family and I that brought me to tears. My oldest child has declared that no one else is allowed to "picture us" other than Ms. Kelley. I wholeheartedly agree! We have found our forever family photographer. Thank you Kelley for providing me with lifelong treasures!

My husband and I needed professional headshots taken and we found Kelley (Pear Tree Photography Atlanta) online. We were hesitant and neither of us were looking forward to the process based on previous experiences with other photographers. In the past, I was never pleased with the outcome and tended to shy away from getting my picture taken. Our experience with Kelley was so different! She does a great job of communicating in advance and finding out what you are looking for with regard to your picture. She is so patient and kind when it comes to people not feeling comfortable in front of the camera. Our pictures turned out great and the whole process was positive and encouraging. We would highly recommend Kelley for any photography work and plan to keep her as our personal photographer for any and all family occasions that need to be captured on film! Great experience- Kelley truly is a wonderful, professional business owner that cares about her work.

Kelley is amazing! As a fellow photographer I asked Kelley to photograph our wedding knowing I would have nothing to worry about and I was right. Our pictures are breath taking! She is so easy to work with and I was touched by how much she cared and her attention to everything, big and small. She has provided me with cherished images I will adore forever!

I hired Kelley to do a photoshoot with my kids to surprise my wife for Mother's Day. They were completely at ease and had a great time with Kelley. Needless to say, this comfort level came through in the photographs, which simply blew me and my wife away. Only problem is, I am going to have to up the ante next Mother's Day, but am confident that it can be done with Pear Tree Photography Atlanta in my corner. Thanks, Kelley!

Kelley did an amazing job with our engagement pictures. We were nervous about taking pictures and what types of poses we would do. Kelley made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Prior to the session she made sure that she communicated with my fiance and I several times so she could get to know us and get a feel for what types of pictures we like. Kelley also made sure that she took the time to sit down with us after our session to give us an opportunity to look at all of our photographs. She also took the time to make sure that she hand delivered our photographs to us. All of this was down in a timely manner. Kelley is not only a wonderful professional photographer, she is also so warm and friendly. I will use her again and I highly recommend her.

We love Kelley and the wonderful photographs she takes, and I'm so grateful that she captured so many wonderful memories on our outing to Sope Creek! I appreciated that she already had some locations in mind, but that she also took some candid shots of us as we were walking around. Our four-year-old daughter was thrilled to go on an adventure through the woods, and Kelley worked hard to make sure she felt happy and special the entire time. The beautiful photo we have on our mantle is a wonderful reminder of that special day! Thanks, Kelley, for capturing so many beautiful shots of our family 🙂

This is the first time that my husband and I have ever had professional photos taken as a couple, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Kelley had great recommendations for locations, clothing and was such a pleasure to work with - we had so much fun! Her images captured so much love and joy, I know that we will treasure them for a lifetime. Thank you, Kelley!!

I loved working with Kelley on my wedding day. She is so professional and prepared. The photos turned out wonderfully, and my husband and I will cherish them forever. I would definitely recommend her as a top-notch photographer!

 
Kelley is an amazing photographer! She has captured so many incredible moments for our organization (Covenant House Georgia), including the attached picture of our youth performing onstage alongside Broadway stars. We are so grateful for her attention to detail, professionalism, and dedication to getting the best shots imaginable. From headshots to event photography, we highly recommend Pear Tree Photography Atlanta!

 

I LOVED working with Kelley for updated family photos. I wanted outdoor pictures in the Fall and she timed it perfectly so the leaves were at peak color and hiked through the woods to capture our definition of the perfect shots. The experience was fun for my whole family and the moments captured will be treasure forever. Thank you Kelley!
