The Photographer

So, here’s the scoop… I’m 38 years old and photography has been a huge passion of mine for many years now. As a teen, I started with silly pretend model photoshoots of my friends, creating backdrops from decorative sheets and random props. In my early twenties, I started working at an actual portrait studio, which eventually helped me to advance my skills and move up to high school photography/senior portraits. That's where my creativity really flourished and what made me want to finally take my chances and branch off on my own. I did not succeed immediately, in fact, I failed horribly - A LOT! But in time, I realized that in those failures were life lessons that just helped me learn how to be better. After much self-training, lots of YouTube videos, seminars, and practice shoots with friends and family, I became a true professional photographer with a business to finally call my own. 



Keely is such a wonderful, fun and energetic photographer. I've been using her services for the past 12 years and will continue to do so. Her uplifting personality has a way of making you feel so relaxed and comfortable during the session. Keely is always growing and learning new techniques and poses, so it's never the same experience twice. Highly recommend for all occasions!

Our experience with Keely/SugarCoated Photography could not have been better. We are recent transplants to Florida and I was anxious about finding a photographer who was willing to listen to my vision for a family photo session that would be a once in over a decade event. Keely was so patient with me! She shared my excitement, and Pinterest Board, met with me in person and chatted over many emails in order to prepare for our shoot. She even scoped out some locations on her own when one coveted location fell through due to COVID. During the shoot, Keely was the consummate professional, engaging all the tricks to engage my husband and adult son (aka, the not-so-willing-photo-subjects. hehe). I feel like I hit the google-lottery when I found SugarCoated Photography! Keely’s work is superb, and her professionalism is “old school” in the most complimentary way possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone in Central Florida for any of their photography projects.

I had a great experience with Sugarcoated Photography. The photos captured the special moment after our wedding. Keely, the owner and photographer, makes you feel at ease, guides you while still capturing the most natural expressions and beautiful scenery. She is full of energy, passionate about her work and her attention of detail for the perfect shot makes this process a breeze and enjoyable. I highly recommend Sugarcoated Photography.

Keely is very good at taking photo's and capturing the look that you want. I had the pleasure to work with her on a photo shoot for myself and it was a great experience. The shoot was done at a park where she took many pictures with different poses and locations in the park. The pictures were great quality and the cost was fantastic for the number of photos I purchased. Keely is very professional and she responds quickly. I highly recommend SugarCoated Photography.
