I was searching for newborn photographers soon after I found out that I was expecting my baby. I looked everywhere and remembered newborn pictures that were taken of my family friends. I clicked on the link to her website & instantly fell in love! I booked with Kelly immediately and we had a very personable conversation a few days later to pick a date. I had my daughters newborn photos taken when she was five days old, still cuddly, still fragile & so new. Kelly handled my baby with so much care. She puts a special authentic touch to her photos & she has very reasonable pricing for the amount of work/time that she puts into all of her portfolios.

I totally recommend Kelly and I look forward to the milestone sessions that we will have for my daughter throughout her 1st year!

Kelly was awesome to work with and did a great job capturing such a monumental event in our life! She photographed us in the first 48 hours of our first baby being born and made us feel very comfortable. She gave us tips on how to hold our baby and how to make her happy for pictures- Kelly had the magic touch to make her content! I am very thankful to have the first moments of her and I breastfeeding captured and her daddy holding her in his big hands for the very first times. Highly recommend!! More...

There are so many good things to say about Kelly! We did a family session in Indianapolis. Although Kelly is from West Lafayette she made the super early trip to do a sunrise session aka Golden Hour session. She found the perfect park in Westfield (north side of Indianapolis, just north of Carmel) that she scoped out before hand. She helped give opinions of outfits and brought props to match. Our daughter at 11 months at the time, had some stranger danger, but Kelly rolled with it! She's great with kids and definitely had a creative plan of what she wanted in posing and locations. We loved our pictures and her special style and her genius idea of early morning sunset added a gorgeous element to our 1st family photos. We definitely plan on using Kelly's talents in future family photos! More...

When it comes to making people feel comfortable in front of the camera, Kelly is a genius! She not only captured the emotion and love our family was feeling, she made the session fun. My husband doesn't enjoy having his photo taken and even he had a great time. We are in love with our images and will definitely be going back to Kelly! More...

Kelly did a wonderful job with our family wildflower session! Getting family photos is not something that I enjoy because it can be very stressful especially with a 2 and 3 year old. Kelly is so encouraging starting before your session even happens with clothing choices. The day of the session she comes prepared with snacks and clever ways to get the perfect shot of your little ones! I highly recommend Kelly, your family photos will be beautiful! More...

Kelly is one of those delightful people who instinctively knows how to put others at ease in their presence. She was delightful to work with and up for the challenge of working within the unique parameters of our family shoot (on our boat at the lake), easily scrambling on and off the boat and getting in the best possible spot to capture our family. I also loved the way she made my son engage with her, and she made it easy for us to feel relaxed and comfortable. I also appreciate her eye for detail and making sure everything was just right for a great shot. And the photography is gorgeous!!! Thank you, Kelly! More...

Working with Kelly was so great. She confidently guided my family (including a very excited toddler!) through an effortless and comfortable session. She knows her way around outdoor light (which is so unpredictable!) And gave us some beautiful and cherished memories of our son at this age. More...

Kelly did such an amazing job with our photo shoot. She was great at getting my children engaged (even when my toddler was throwing a temper tantrum she was able to re-direct his attention and got him to willingly cooperate in the shoot). We did not want all of our pictures to be really posed but much more natural to how our family typically behaves and the prompts and direction she gave us worked beautifully. I could not be happier with our photos and would definitely recommend her. More...

Kelly is AMAZING! Our first time working with her was for our maternity pictures, we have since used her for a fresh 48 session in the hospital and our newborn pictures. She is so attentive to details, very patient and sweet. We have loved every single picture from every session. I highly recommend Kelly for all your photography needs, she’s so fun to work with and makes everything feel so natural. Her work is truly one of a kind and exactly what we were looking for in a photographer. We will be using her for all of our future photography needs! More...

Kelly did a family and three years milestone session for us in February. We absolutely love both her and her photos. She is very patient and energetic to work with the kids. She connected with me many times to help me decide the ideas for the session. With two three years old twin boys, I was worried that they would be difficult to work with and we could not get some good photos. However, as a mother of two toddlers herself, she is perfect and knows how to play with the boys. She made the session be much fun for them. I highly recommend Kelly for family session and baby milestone sessions. More...

Kelly did a newborn photoshoot for us and the pictures turned out great! She was extremely patient with our (often uncooperative) baby and took the time that was needed to get both posed and 'lifestyle' pictures. I can't recommend her enough as a photographer, we really love the pictures that capture what is really such a fleeting time. More...

Kelly’s a fantastic photographer. My wife and I asked her to take photos of our family. We weren’t sure what to expect, since our daughter is only a year old.

Kelly is not only a talented photographer, but she is also gifted with capturing beautiful moments and colors! It was our family's first Christmas photo session, and Kelly was very generous with her advice. She answered my desire to learn more about color and texture combinations, and prepared us with encouragement to have fun! She created a fun environment for the session, and included our kids in everything. She let them have fun, play with the props, that the session seemed like a beautiful family time with beautiful photos as the icing on the cake! Kelly has a lot of international/cultural experiences, can quickly catch what is unique about each family, and portray that in beautiful ways! Thank you Kelly McPhail Photography, for helping my family create memories that we will treasure forever. More...

Our family is extremely grateful for Kelly's skills and expertise with the camera, her patience and understanding when particularly photographing young/rowdy children, and her genuine joy in the work that she is doing simply shows in how enthusiastic she is that I'm certain it hardly feels like work to her. Liza and I our glad that she was the family's first photographer and (if she keeps us) we look forward to future photography from her for our family. The photo's she took are all precious and we cherish them and are thankful Kelly for your work. We want to encourage you to keep going and we thank your family too for giving up time with you to share you and your passion with us! More...
