I believe in providing a boutique, customized, and unique experience for each family. As a mother myself, I know how quickly time flies and I always find myself wishing I could have time back. With each photo session, you can freeze your memories so you can remember and hold onto your littles a bit longer.

Choose Your Package

Each session is up to 90 minutes of shooting time and includes a full gallery of 30+ high resolution images in a private online gallery. You'll also receive the KV Style Guide to help plan your perfect session.

I know how exciting it is to get your photos back so you can share them with all your friends and family! Come check out The Experience section below to see the timeline.

How long will it take to receive my images?

I start booking mamas after the first trimester. For maternity sessions, the best time for photos is between 28-34 weeks. For newborn photos, we will "reserve" the date closest to your due date. Once your sweet babe comes, we will choose a permanent spot on my calendar while your babe is 10-14 days old. 

When should I book?

Yep, I sure do! Any location within 25 miles of my home studio is included. Anything beyond that may require a travel fee added on for gas and time. 

Do you travel?

I get it, nobody loves being outside in the rain, especially in this grey, cold, chill you to the bones Washington rain. 

If we are scheduled for an outdoor session, you'll have the option to either do a studio or lifestyle session in your home, or we will reschedule! 

What if it rains?

I am so excited and just grateful you are considering me to capture such an exciting time in your life. To officially get on my books and reserve your date, send me an email (hello@kelivaeagi.com), or fill out my contact form below. Please let me know your due date if pregnant, how many is in your family, and any other information you would like me to know. I can't wait to work with you!

Many of my clients love being able to capture memories in their home. The nursery, your master suite, and living room are all perfect places to capture your bond with your newborn.

Outfit inspiration

Picking out clothes for your session doesn't have to be stressful. Here are 3 tips to make your planning simple!

1) Choose a family of colors.
(Neutrals, pastels, jewels, etc.)

2) Find complimentary colors (such as blue and pink) to mix throughout your outfits.

3) Mamas, pick out your outfit first, then plan everything else around it.

 She is flexible and understands that with babies it’s all about sometimes being quick and sometimes being patient. She is so easy to be around so don’t feel awkward or uncomfortable. If you’re looking for newborn pictures, family pictures, any pictures... book her!

"AMAZING! Keli is so creative and fun."

Keli was very fun to work with! I had never done a photoshoot before and she made us feel very comfortable the entire time. I was worried that it might be awkward to take pictures with someone you don’t know but it was the total opposite of that!
— Estrella

"I love how natural everything turned out and the pictures were beautiful."

In a nutshell, I am a light-hearted preemie mama who loves to have fun! I would classify myself as an extroverted-introvert. I love being home, but I absolutely love surrounding myself with family and friends. 

You can catch me playing my favorite card games with my family, taking my toddler on walks to the park, or strolling Ruston Way with an Almond Poppyseed ice cream cone from The Ice Cream Social in my hand. 

My passion is to help women through their journey into motherhood, as I believe we all could use a little more support & love. 

I'm Keli - a wife, preemie mama, a fun-loving photographer.
