I live in Clinton Missouri with my husband (who also happens to be my wedding photography partner) and 6 amazing children.  Being able to do photography for a living is a dream come true for me.  I love what I do.  It is fun to go to work!  I love the relationships I get to build with you and the opportunity to share in and capture your special milestone moments as well as the beauty of your everyday life.  I do all types of photography but I would say my trademark style is natural lifestyle photography.  I would much rather catch you being real, interacting and expressing emotion than sit you and pose you. I encourage your creative ideas! I want photo sessions to be fun and capture the essence of you and your interests.  I look forward to working with you!

Happy Customers:

“You are a wonderful photographer whom we have taken pictures with for 9 years now.  Each and every time you have new ideas that always turn out to be true inspirations.  You always go the extra mile to take a picture and our daughter loves to pose for you.  You have turned her into a little model that loves dressing up and having you take pictures of her.  We can tell that you love your work and it shows in every picture you take.  We love Kelly Griffey Photography and we make sure everyone knows it. 🙂 ” – Monica
