Kelly Day was born in Orlando, Florida while her father was attending PGA school.  At the age of two, they moved to Tennessee.  She spent many years in Middle Tennessee as a gymnast and dancer.  Kelly was the kind of girl who always wanted to fix her friends hair and makeup and had a camera around all the time.  

She received a scholarship to Memphis State University to dance on the infamous POM squad and moved to the west side of the state where she has remained.

Kelly spent 17 years in a Corporate America job as an IT consultant regarding content management.  She learned along the way, that she was missing her creative outlet and began doing photography full-time in 2014.

Award winning photographer Kelly day brings beauty to all of those who step before her camera

Her photography journey began with her first wedding in 2005 and continued on to include portrait work, branding, seniors and sports. After 10 years of shooting friends and family she realized she loved helping women and girls feel beautiful.  This took off with a journey that now has become a beauty brand that provides a luxury experience for her clients.  She not only pampers them with a magazine style shoot but also posing and direction that leaves them with a feeling of empowerment.  

Kelly loves working with women and children who may need a self confidence boost or need to see themselves in a different way.  With a full magazine style shoot that includes hair, makeup and styling, her clients leave feeling like a movie star.  

"I invite you to a session with me and I promise I will change the way you see yourself." ~Kelly Day
