Last year, a full two years ahead of the time frame planned in my business plan to actually do so, I was fortunate enough to obtain beautiful a studio space to use. As many of you know and experienced, I was in a lovely shared studio atop the Yellow Barn event space in Olathe, KS. The other photographers I shared the space with were (are) awesome. We all got along, we worked well together, we assisted each other, and it was great. We still stay in contact and will certainly work together in the future in other capacities. The only thing I missed was a place all my own, in the town where I live and shop and interact; a place I could use around the clock. As of this past month, I'm pleased to report, I'M HOME!
Kelly Alley Photography, Inc. now has its own studio/office location in Downtown Shawnee KS, right next to City Hall at 5800 Barton Drive, Suite 201. I still photograph sessions in all of the great surrounding cities that make up the Greater Kansas City metro. So why the change? I am able to be closer to the hub of a more centralized location my clients are in, and in my own town. Most importantly, I have a space all my own where I can work from more regularly, which frees me from feeling like those hours have to be made up either on my family's precious time or into the wee hours of the night. Plus, I've always adored Shawnee. Its friendly small-town atmosphere pulls me in, from the quaint downtown shops to the local parks, corner coffee shop, and the local fairs and street events they have throughout the year. I'm so glad to be here. I love it, and I'm sure you will too!
I'm still offering indoor portraits for newborn photography and headshot photography, and as always, all sessions are offered at any one of the amazing on-location Greater Kansas City areas we have around town. So please let me know if you're in the area (near Johnson Drive and Nieman Rd) and stop by to say "hi"! (Text first, in case I'm out on location.) Thank you so much for the support during this change. The time I will get to invest here will be best for my business, best for my family, and best for my clients. As always, call me any time to schedule a consultation as soon as possible for fall. It is coming quickly, and it will fill up fast!
Here are a few photos of the new space...I am on the second floor, directly above Farmers.
