My name is Kelsy Hagood (Rogers is my maiden name) & I am the owner here at Kelsy Rogers Photography & Design! I am married to an amazing man, Mark, who supports every little thing I do. I am a mommy to 1 beautiful baby girl, Adaline Violet! She was born in November 2016 & 10 weeks early due to severe pre-eclampsia resulting in a 44 day NICU stay, but she is now a happy, hyper, & *most importantly* healthy little girl! I love all animals, but HATE insects & creepy crawlies. I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, & a potbelly pig! I love getting out in nature & adventuring. I am fun, spunky, & a little bit nerdy. We live in the middle of the woods on a dead end dirt road, we are just down to earth country people. I never meet a stranger, I will talk to anyone that will talk back or that is willing to listen.
ABOUT MY WORK:
I have been into photography pretty much ever since I could pick up a camera. I have always enjoyed creating things too! When I was a kid, I drove my parents insane begging for new craft supplies & software to make cards & design projects pretty much every day! I have been doing photography & design professionally now for 8 Years. I have always had a special place in my heart for photography & design. I love everything about them both. I consider myself blessed to have such a wonderful career where I get to meet AMAZING clients, most of whom have turned into some life long friends. I adore what I do & all the people I meet doing it! As far as becoming an artist with painting, making jewelry, & crafting as more of a business than a hobby, that’s new, so join me on this new venture & take a look at my work! For now all my work is listed here but my new boutique will be opening later this year so keep your eye out for the launch! It will be called: The Southern Mermaid Boutique.
I went to Calhoun Community College & graduated on May 13th, 2011 with an Associates Degree in Computer Graphics & Electronic Imaging, as well as a Minor in Photography. I have taken literally every photography class they offer at Calhoun. HOWEVER, I am a self taught photographer. I taught myself everything I know about my camera before I ever entered College. I spent day after day just playing out in my yard with my camera, until I finally understood exactly what I was doing.
WHAT I OFFER:
I specialize in Custom Logo Designs, however I will design anything you need if its within my power to do so. If there is something I am not comfortable designing, I know several other graphic designers that I can refer you to! As far as photography goes, I do family portraits, newborn photos, events, pet photos, weddings, boudoir, you name it, I do it (with very few exceptions). For my Boutique, I will offer custom jewelry, handmade jewelry, paintings, various crafts, home decor, etc. SO MANY THINGS. I also plan to start a children’s line of jewelry, clothes, & maybe even toys. There is a lot in the works for the boutique so I do not have a ton of info on it just yet, but I will have that soon enough. Seriously, keep your eye out for my launch! You will not be disappointed!
I would seriously love to work with you guys so feel free to check out my work & contact me!
