Past Reviews:

I’ve always admired Heather’s photos and recently was able to take a class that she offered. She was so knowledgeable and helpful and she taught me how to take better pictures of my own daughter. She has a beautiful home studio and is amazing with children. I would highly recommend Heather Kelly Photography for any of your family photo needs. There is a reason she was named as one of the Top Photographers in CT! – L.C. Brookfield, CT

Several months ago I took Heather Kelly’s photography class for moms. I was so impressed with how quickly my photography began to improve, but even more impressed with the continued support of my classmates and myself. Now I have lots of great pictures of my children that I will cherish forever. We’ve been so pleased with Heather Kelly Photography that we even booked a family session for this fall, so I can actually be in some of the pictures with my family. I am beyond excited, because I know they will be amazing! -K.A. Newtown, CT
