About the Artist

Hello! I’m Kelli, the founder of Hello Life Studios in Austin, Texas. Thanks for visiting my corner of the internet — I’m so glad you’re here!

I founded my photography business with a strong desire to document the beauty in the families I work with. For me, family is the most important thing in my life, and after going through a difficult illness in 2013, I am more aware than ever of how fragile life is. It’s my honor to capture what makes you and your family special and unique.

I approach all of my work with an artist’s eye, observing and creating something unique and meaningful for each client. My favorite part of being a small business owner is the people; I’m a big believer that everyone has a story to tell and it’s a joy for me to help them tell it.

I love creating beautiful photos that connect and remind people of the love, freedom, inspiration, and fun in their life. Through the ups and downs of life, gorgeous art including the people we love most in this world remind us of what truly matters.

Let’s start a conversation and create something beautiful together!


  • Life’s best moments are fleeting.
  • Portraits become more precious over time.
  • There’s never a better time to document your legacy.
  • Family memories remind us of who we are and what’s most important to us.
  • And I believe… that the simplest moments deserve to be preserved and remembered.

Get in touch today – let’s start a conversation!
