About Kelly Szott

I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a friend, an equestrian. I am a woman who wants to empower other women. I see beauty in the world and the people around me and I want to capture it. I am a photographer and a storyteller. 

Everyone I meet has a story to tell; a story of love, a story of connection, a story of commitment, a story of self-awareness. I am passionate about using my camera and all I have come to know is to create images that illustrate the story you want to share. Let’s tell your story together.

About Kelly Szott

A Calgary Photographer That Captures The Essence of Who You Are

Along For The Ride

Capturing the story of your life, how you live, and what you love. I promise to bring passion and excitement to your shoot, make it fun, find the beauty in each second and eternalize these moments that you can cherish forever. Share your love for horses, your love for another, your love for yourself with me and we will take a photo journey together.

 

Not Just Great Photos

There are lots of photographers who take great photos. I take great photos too! But I make it my mission to do more than that. I promise to learn your story and retell it with amazing images that celebrate, commemorate, and reflect this moment in time for you. This is what I promise:

 

FANTASY FRIESIAN AND HORSE SESSIONS 2022

Book a session with a magnificent Friesian Horse or your own favourite equine this year, any season, and capture the stunning beauty of your majestic horse. These sessions are 30-60 minutes long and will take place in the Priddis area SW of Calgary (where the Friesian is stabled) or wherever your horse is located. You will leave with 10 digital images that illustrate the love and the beautiful connection you have with your beloved animal, or purchase additional images if you wish.

Do you have a horse lover in your life who doesn’t have a horse of their own, but would love amazing portraits with a horse? Gift them this year with a gift certificate to have photos done with Toby, the magnificent Friesian, or with my own beautiful buckskin mare! I bet they will shower you with love, but not too much love, they have to save some for the horse! ;)

In Their Own Words

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I couldn’t agree more! I want to believe that my work speaks for itself; I hope it does. But what may speak even louder, are the words my clients have to share about their experiences working with me. Here are their words:

How It Works

I promise that your photo experience with me will be completely unique and customized perfectly for you. Your session or event will be an occasion, an adventure, and we will have a ton of fun. Here is what you can expect as we take this journey to tell your story together.

 

Consultation And Quote

Consultation And Quote

Let’s talk! We’ll meet up for a coffee or a drink to chat about your boudoir session, your wedding, or your horse, why you want photos, and how you want your experience to be. This helps me understand what is important to you, alleviate any fears, and answer questions you may have.

Client Setup

Client Setup

I collect the information I need for your session and the information I need to create your unique client profile. At this time I create the event, invoice for the required retainer, and provide the contract that must be signed by all involved parties so that everyone is protected and secure.

 

Plan… Sort of

Plan… Sort of

We can start brainstorming locations and poses, and decide on some pictures we want to ensure we get - but it is also important to just wing it sometimes… to be ready for those special, unexpected smiles, to be inspired at the moment, to find beauty in the way the light hits, or the look in someone’s eye. It is best to be agile and flexible and follow the story where it leads us.

 

How It Works
Shoot

Shoot

The big day has arrived! I promise to be prepared, excited, and observant, I don’t want to miss a thing! I will ensure to capture the moments where you take a breath and focus on the story you have to tell, but I also want to capture the moments when you are just unapologetically you.

 

Processing

Processing

This is the nitty-gritty of photography; the all-important background work that ensures you have images that beautifully reflect your session or event. I will curate a gallery of all of the best shots, the unforgettable moments I have captured, and then apply treatments that enhance the story you told.

Gallery Delivery

Gallery Delivery

I archive your images in an online gallery, with your copyright/print release included. You can share your gallery with friends and family and images are downloadable with the click of a button. My goal is that your gallery will take your breath away, let you relive all of the moments, and make you feel like you have been seen and understood.
