ABOUT ME.....About My Business
HOW IT ALL GOT STARTED:
People often ask me, “How did you get into photography?” The answer is simple, really… at age eleven I wanted to capture everyday moments with my family, and what I saw coming from my camera was not cutting it. I was unimpressed with my blurry, underexposed, poorly composed photos. So I jumped into the art of photography head first. Reading everything I could get my hands on. I joined forums, read articles, books and magazine, and invested in workshops,Took classes and most of all…I practiced, daily. Now, I not only capture the memories of my family, but of others as well. I love the Lord, my family, and photography. I pretty much can never get enough of any of these things. If you need a photographer, I would be honored to help turn your special moments into unforgettable memories.
WHY I DO WHAT I DO:
I can remember going through the books of family pictures as as a small child and feeling disappointment. I continued to thumb through the book of pictures, hoping to find more of me and my dad, us as a family, or even just pictures of him and my mom but there were very few. My heart sank every time.
See, when I was eleven , my father passed away.But way before that when i was five he became very sick and later Paralysed from the waist down. I am sure my parents thought they had more time to take pictures, they had no idea how short life would be. And neither do we.
That is where I can help you!

HOW KEELAN WALKER PHOTOGRAPHY IS DIFFERENT:There are a lot of Photographers for you to choose from here in the shoals area. What sets me apart from the other Photographers? The entire experience I create for you. From start to finish, I am with you all the way. From helping you coordinate outfits, to picking the location, to determining with pictures and products would suit your needs best.
My goal is to create a FUN & stress-free experience for everyone YOU.
Have you ever looked at a picture of everyone smiling, yet you realize you have negative feelings attached to that picture? It is because in reality, behind the smile everyone was melting down right before and after the camera clicked.
It is my job to create an experience where your kids (and hubby) want to cooperate, (trust me, I have tricks up my sleeve to make it happen) so that when you look at that final picture you will treasure it with fond memories. It is your job to just enjoy the moment.
I also take the stress out of the preparation.
I know how daunting it can be to try to coordinate clothing for everyone, but I will make sure you feel fully prepared. I offer full details on what to expect, how to prepare for the shoot, and a style guide. Many of my clients will even take pictures with their phone of different outfits they are thinking of wearing, and have me help them decide, I love that!
I will make sure to pick the perfect location for your shoot, and throughout the shoot, you are bound to have a good time.
