Photographs

BY KELLĒ SAUER

Confession:

Your passion is my passion.

Photography is NOT my passion. 

You being you. You being in love. Your love being your love, the way you  would do it.
In a world where it feels like we're all getting away with something if we get to feel like ourselves, I'm passionate about making more room for you

When you DO YOU, it is everything

And everyone around you knows it. You get to celebrate that. 

After almost 20 years in the photography industry, I've learned one lesson:  the most important thing is to keep on doing what you're already doing. You are where you are because you already know you're perfect, because you believe in your passion, because you think your voice matters -- in the way that you express it. There is always room for growth and change and choice, but there has never been anything missing.

I believe that luxury is getting out of bed in the morning to do something you love. Whether I'm hanging out behind my camera with my people, editing away at emails and web copy for businesses, or deep-diving 1:1 into your passion on a Zoom session, I am always working on ideas and strategies to make a big deal about you and your love. If it doesn't work from one angle, I'm all about making up another one. 

What I'm working on 

How to be a Lover

3-hours of on-location photography about you, in love. Be romantic. Enjoy today. Keep it real.

The Love Story

3 tiers of action-oriented mentorship & creative direction to identify your voice, up-level your edit, & help your people find you.

Slow mornings,
strong tea (with cream), rose-gold light,
 you being you,
 and shoes I don't wear.

I live in a Charleston house in San Francisco's Bay Area, making a life with my attorney husband, Pete, three kids, and a few too many cats (who think they're people too). I keep a daily journal, play with brand development for creative entrepreneurs, and aspire to bi-coastal living, because I'll probably always be an East Coast girl at heart.
