Kelly Kirksey Photography

Maria asked if I would write on why I love photography, but that's a hard order for someone like me. My first thought was I love people more than photography. Don't get me wrong, I get so excited when I see a finished session or when prints are delivered to my house. But what gets me the most is the experience that I get to have with my clients... Read more

Montana Cows

This week I heard of a story that touched me about the “heart of Montana” and the spirit of generosity. I have grown up being taught that when your neighbors need help that is just what you do.

Kalispell High Heel a Thon

On July 20th, 2013, I strapped on my purple high heels and walked down Main Street in downtown Kalispell.
