This has been such a tough year for everyone, and kids especially deserve a little magic for Christmas. I would like to offer to give every family that I have photographed this year a free photo with Santa. ❤
**my only request is that you tell your kids that me and Santa are close friends, so they are extra good at their next session! 😜
For anyone who would like a photo with Santa, but did not have a session with me this past year, I am offering these for $10 each.
Message me for more details/ to get your photo with Santa!🎄

Having so much fun with these engagement sessions lately!
You never realize how much you appreciate the leaves until they are covered in snow..... Just finishing this gallery and thinking about what a wonderful fall it was! 🍁
First birthdays are especially awesome when your mom gives you a dozen donuts 😋
"Oh yeah, I'll tell you somethin'
I think you'll understand
When I say that somethin'
I want to hold your hand🎵"
Always gotta put the love songs on full blast while editing through engagement photos. 😁
Fall engagement sessions are so much fun!!!! Especially when you get a couple who can't look at each other without smiling😁 You guys are too cute & I can't wait for your wedding! 🍁
In the past 2 weeks, I have shot 30+ sessions, and 2 weddings..... I have been one busy lady this fall season! I have also gotten to spend countless hours outside in the beautiful fall weather with lovely people such as these, and for that, I can't complain one bit! I love my job and am so thankful for all of my amazing clients who have kept me afloat through this crazy year.
Now to play catch up on some editing as things are winding down a bit. Thank you so very much to everyone for your patience during this busy fall season! 🍁
Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Forcier!!! ❤️❤️🎉
This was such a perfect wedding! You guys are such a sweet couple, and I have to do a little shout out to your kids for literally being soooo sweet and well behaved on their mom and dad's big day!
Jimena, you and your family were so much fun to hangout with during this session! I can't wait for you to see the rest! 😍
Had a lot of fun with my recent mini sessions! Here is a sneak peek for the Siegel family❤️
Also wanted to mention, the leaves at my usual spot held on 💪through that recent storm, and are still looking beautiful! I still have a few mini session openings for this coming weekend, message me to reserve your spot!

This was such an amazing wedding!!! Garrett and Kalley are both some of the nicest people I've met, I was honored to capture their wedding day. And that first look😍 made my heart melt a little. SO sweet ❤️
Congratulations again to you both!
Had to share a few more from the Kroll wedding because I can't get over how beautiful it all was. Also, as I am finishing up their gallery, I realized that their pup made her way into 90% of the photos. Their bond is literally cutest thing ever😍
Was such a fun fall session with the Engle family! 🍁
For anyone interested, I still have a few fall sessions available but am getting pretty busy so if you'd like a session before the leaves are gone, definitely let me know soon! :)

My name is Kelsey Bellows! I am a Minnesota based photographer who specializes in weddings, elopements, engagements, as well as family & children photography. To me, photography is not just snapping a posed photo. I truly strive to create a natural and fun environment where laughter, creativity, and happiness can flow. This allows me to capture the love emitting from real moments, meant to be cherished for years and generations to come.
I started my photography journey early on in life, before I really even knew what the actual term “photography” was. When I was a child, I loved playing with any type of camera I could get my hands on. I went through countless rolls of film, mostly chasing around the family and the family pets (driving them crazy, might I add). It sounds silly, but they were the inspiration for my passion as a kid. Eventually I grew into my hobby and became obsessed with developing my own film in the darkroom, which I was so fortunate to have learned from my wonderful High School art teacher, Mr. Noreen. After truly diving into the film photography world, I began to also develop an interest for digital photography, which soon would set my world on fire.
After high school, I became fixated on adventure. I wanted to see the world and capture the essence of new places and different cultures. Along with photography, I also have a huge passion for Anthropology. I love new perspectives, and seeing life outside of my own reality. This has been a huge game changer for my work as a photographer, as I really learned to capture true moments which reflect actual experiences and invoke emotion. I have carried this passion into my creative process, which is why I am so big into capturing real smiles, laughter, and love, opposed to only stiff posed shots. As a photographer, I put myself in a vulnerable position of silliness. I do what it takes to get the smiles, even if it is making funny faces to kids, singing and dancing to silly songs, or even trying to crack a few jokes (usually not all that funny but gets the job done, lol). A fun and upbeat environment is the vibe I try to create as a directer. Love, light, and happiness is what I strive to capture as a photographer.
When I am not looking through my Nikon’s viewfinder, I also am a painter, nature lover, traveler, hiker, book worm, and most importantly, I have a wonderful family and am a mom to an amazing little boy!
