I have known Kelsie and her family for a few years now. Her mother, Jenny, is a fellow Ms Wheelchair Kansas alum and a dear friend. When I first met Kelsie, she was much younger and shorter. Her little sister, Karlie, was too. Now they both tower over me and are as beautiful as can be.
I made the trip to Wichita for this shoot, and I always love finding new places to photograph. The Keeper of the Plains was a first for me, and I just love the way that the photos turned out.
After we trekked around the park at the Keeper for a bit, we made our way down to Douglas Street and spent some time finding little gems to use as backdrops also.
This little art alleyway was such a unique place, and I feel like it suited Kelsie’s personality well. Bubbly and bright with a lot of spectacular light.
I can't wait to see where she goes in the next few years!
