I’m Kelsi, the photographer behind the lens of Lovebug.

Photography began as a hobby for me. I graduated with a nursing degree and worked for six years as a neonatal ICU nurse. While I loved, and I mean absolutely treasured my nursing career, I began to find myself itching to fire up the creative side of me. And that’s where my photography journey really began.

I love documentary, storytelling photography. I want you to look back through your photographs and relive those moments as if they were happening all over again. I want you to feel that flood of emotions that came over you as they placed your child into your arms for the first time. How about the overwhelming love you feel as your child jumps into your arms, tightly squeezing your neck as if to never let go? Or the sound of your little one’s laughter as you chase him through the tall Kansas wildflowers at sunset?

It’s about the connections, the emotions, and all of those feelings. Let’s find the light in the everyday moments and create memories together.

Your Story is My Passion

As your photographer, I want to get to know you. It’s extremely important for me to build relationships with the families I photograph. I truly pour my heart and soul into each and every session to capture memories that will be cherished forever.

As I’ve become a mom, we know the days are long but man the years are so short. They get away from us in a jiffy. And unfortunately, babies don’t keep, as much as I’d love to bottle up that newborn phase for just a little bit longer.

I promise you won’t regret photographing your family at this stage of life, because in the blink of an eye, our babies have morphed into grown adults and all we’re left with are memories.

My Family


"Kelsi with Lovebug Photography took our newborn/family photographs at a lifestyle session in our home. I loved them so much I booked a newborn studio session with her the next week. Although I had never met Kelsi, she has such a kind and welcoming personality it seemed like we had known each other for years. Not only that, but she was so good with my baby girl. During our session, I learned Kelsi was a former NICU nurse. I trusted her even more with my baby knowing that. She knew exactly how to comfort my daughter when she was a little fussy-I just sat back while she fed my daughter, rocked her, and got her to pose perfectly. It was clear she has a passion for babies and families. And the best part-our photos are everything I wanted and more!"

"Kelsi far exceeded my expectations! My little girl is usually reserved, and she knew just how to get her comfortable and out of her shell. She captured the true essence of our family perfectly. I can’t recommend her enough!"

Blonde Belle

Kelsi has a way of making you feel so comfortable. She takes the best real life photos, you don’t feel posed in any way. You look at her photos and say yes! This is my real life in a photo!
