Photog Life June Featured Photographer ~ Kelly Pennington

It's time to meet our June Photog Life featured photographer, Kelly Pennington. We are so lucky to have Kelly in our Photog Life Community! Thank you for sharing a little about you!
Tell us a little about you and your personal life. Married, kids, fur babies? We want to know it all! 
Hello! I am a navy spouse with two black labs that I love so much. We are stationed in rainy WA but originally from AZ. No babies yet, but love the little family I have.
What made you decide to get into photography and when did you first start? 
I started in 2017. My husband is my biggest supporter that helped me decide to finally jump into a job I love so much! 
What type of photography do you shoot? What are you most passionate about? 
I am a natural portrait photographer. My passion is maternity and boudoir but I love all my clients that come. 
Not that this really matters, but what do you shoot with?
I shoot with a rebel T6, 35mm sigma art lens!
 What makes your passion shine? What are you most passionate about when you are holding your camera? 
I am passionate about the love I capture and moments I get to snap pictures of. 
During your journey as a photographer, what has been the hardest part? 
The hardest part would have to be the slow season up here in rainy WA because I love just going out and exploring with clients.
 If you were to go back in time, is there anything you would change? 
I would have started this journey sooner!
If you could photograph anyone, alive or not, who would it be and why? 
I would love to photograph for Tyra Banks because she’s a queen and I believe she would be such an inspiration. 
 What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind as a photographer? 
I want to just leave behind amazing memories for my clients to have as well as knowing I did my best for my business.
What advice do you have for a photographer that is just starting out? 
Research!!! If you want to dive in, do it right. Make contracts, don’t just buy any lenses or accessories!
