Behind The Lens
Kelli Jackson & The Booking Process.
KType Creative Photography is the love and passion of Kelli Jackson. THAT’S ME! While I do use Second Shooters when they’re requested – I ONLY use those I trust, that I would trust to be my FIRST shooter , whose style, passion, attitude and compassion for brides and making their day wonderful and fun matches mine.
So, when we take on a wedding or other photoshoot, how do I approach it? That depends on the shoot, for private shoots, I believe the best photos come from the unposed moments. We allow the day to unfold naturally and capture the memorable moments as they happen. I endeavour to tell the story of YOU, not just take photos of a wedding or family like any other group or couple. But capture the soul of YOU, you as two individuals that have come together as a partnership, You as a family, what makes you laugh, what makes you happy, what do you find beautiful and romantic, what brought you together, what is unique about your day, the special people in your lives anything and everything we do is focused on you.
I work to tell the story of your day and the story of your love and your relationship(s). I will help you breathe, take a moment, and take it all in. That includes helping coach you through the sometimes stressful parts of your day if you need it, after all I’m there beside you all day. Remember, it is our job to produce beautiful images of your wedding day and your job to give in to the moment and celebrate.
For Marketing Shoots I approach with the thought that businesses need creative images too. Something to set them apart and show their products and services in the absolute best light possible. Don’t get me wrong though, just because we are doing a marketing shoot, doesn’t mean it has to be all serious business, its important that staff relax and have a good time while we get the images, again, the best images come from happy, relaxed people.
So how did I get here? After moving to Boyne Island in 2014 with my husband Tim and my two canine ‘furkids’ Poppy and Missi, I began to work for myself particularly in document development especially in resumes and cover letters while also operating as a local artist.
2016 saw a major change in direction for me, combining my artist, creative self with the scholarly self, amalgamating Kelli Jackson Art with KType Documents to see the birth of KType Creative.
By the end of 2017 what I hoped would become a permanent part time job in 5 years was already looking to be full-time in 2018! I had achieved my 10 year goals in 2 because of YOU! so THANKYOU. I am so unbelievably honoured to be part of your families lives; To capture the moments that mean the most.
I honestly, truly have the best job in the world. I hope to capture moments for you soon!
