K Mooney Studios | Accolades

Kelly Mooney is a consummate professional...she mixed an amazing amount of technical skill together with a great, casual atmosphere to help me get the best out of our photo session. I was a little nervous, as I haven't had my picture taken professionally since high school, but Kelly made me feel super comfortable, which made a difference in the images (I look happy and relaxed!) Kelly's untouched proofs were confirmation that she is a fantastic photographer...I was profoundly satisfied with the results, and would recommend her all day long! In fact, I'm electing myself president of the Kelly Mooney Fan Club. Thank you, Kelly!

Hi Kelly,

I just wanted to pass this on...

Today I went a PATA Audition Prep Workshop
and when I gave the auditors my picture and resume,
one of them commented on my head shot. 
"BEAUTIFUL picture by the way, who did them,
do you remember?"  I said "oh yes, it was Kelly Mooney!"
He said , (looking out at the other folks), "Kelly Mooney" guys!

Nice plug, eh?

Can't thank you enough.

Will be in touch..



Kelly is amazing! She made me feel very comfortable and brought out my true self on camera for my acting headshot session. I had a great time shooting and definitely got the photos I was seeking. Overall I found Kelly to be professional, efficient, fun, and very talented!!

Kelly is the best! Most recently she took my son's senior photos and to say the least, they turned out fantastic! Kelly is extremely professional yet has a lighthearted approach that puts her clients at ease. In addition, she is very flexible and really listens to what her clients are looking for. In our case, my son had wanted to incorporate his love of football in some of his photos but he didn't want typical poses. Kelly took us to a nearby football field where she took phenomenal photos of my son that not only captured his athleticism, but were also artistic, edgy and just down right cool! We will go to Kelly for all our future photography needs. I highly recommend her. - Jody O. | Southridge HS Parent


Hi Kelly, 

Thank you for a wonderful evening! It was such a treat to meet you  ...  I'm sure the photos will be beautiful, but the real joy was seeing Jax enjoy the experience. You really picked up on her personality and interests, you nailed it!!! So very grateful for your time a thoughtful consideration.

Best, Amy

Kelly was incredibly helpful from the start in helping me prepare for the session - what to wear, what locations to choose - and she even has a fantastic hair/makeup artist to recommend who came to my house!

The shoot itself was a ton of fun! I hadn't realized how helpful it would be to have a photographer with years and years of PR experience, but she knew just what shots to take to give me a range of options.  Kelly was also great at getting me to loosen my face up when my smile started to look stiff, and to get genuine smiles and laughs out of me!

I hadn't liked getting my photo taken that much in the past, but I feel like I have a whole new attitude towards it. Kelly and her makeup expert made me feel and look like a freaking supermodel! My feet were sore from a couple of days in high heels, but I was having so much fun I could have gone on for hours. 

My shots turned out incredible - I've gotten amazing feedback from friends so far and I can't wait to showcase these photos on my professional website. I'm so happy I found Kelly and her awesome work! You will be too! 

Kelly has an amazing ability to see who you really are and capture that through her camera. She's extremely professional, takes amazing photographs, and is a lot of fun to work with. She's hands-down the best photographer in the area.  - Brian D. | Portland Author          

Kelly is an amazing photographer who immediately made me feel comfortable.

I had a wonderful time with her and the pictures were great right away!

Kelly does great work! We used her for senior photographs.

Kelly knows how to get the best photographs and is very creative in her shots. My daughter had a good time working with her and making her feel at ease while taking pictures. 


We loved ALL the picture she took and had a VERY hard time choosing which photos to keep. I would totally recommend her to friends and family.

Kelly makes it fun and so comfortable it doesn't matter if you have been in front of a camera a million times, or you barely ever have ... She will make sure that you look stunning. She is such a sweet lady and it was truly a blessing to work with her! - Samantha Z.  | West Linn High School Student

We recently worked with Kelly on a photo shoot for my son Cade.

Kelly was the ultimate professional while making the experience fun at the same time.

The photos turned out beautifully which was a slight miracle because the weather was overcast and slightly drizzling. 

Thank you Kelly for a phenomenal experience and beautiful thought and expression that you put into your photography.

Thank you Kelly for a wonderful experience. You were delightful to work with and our team appreciated your time and the outcome of the pictures. I would be very happy to refer you to friends and colleagues. I am so happy to have made this connection with you!! - Carrie H. | Financial Investment Team

Kelly made us feel comfortable from the minute we walked in. She took the best pictures and we couldn't be more thrilled. Thank you for such a positive and memorable experience for us!! I would highly recommend Kelly as a photographer. -  Kristen H. | Parent, Portland Model

We highly recommend Kelly. She makes every effort to know her client and plan a photo shoot that matches the character of the subject. Our son's senior photos are fantastic! In fact, it was difficult to narrow down our selections. Plus, Kelly makes the entire process easy starting with scheduling and ending with the unveiling and access of the photos on the internet and on an app. Thank you, Kelly! - Judith L., West Linn HS Parent

Friendly, professional, humorous, polite, unpretentious, enthusiastic, talented, and flat out cool. Very much enjoyed my session and the resulting photographs. Would recommend and use again. - Matthew B., Portland Actor

Kelly is an incredible photographer and just a dream to work with. She has a great eye, but more importantly, she really cares about her clients and sees the beauty in them and captures that on camera. I love my business profile picture that Kelly took, and I would recommend her to anyone!  - Jeany Park, Compass Rose Video 

Kelly is an incredibly personable photographer, willing to meet with you in order to understand your vision for your photos. Her ability to put you at ease will show once you receive your photos back. Kelly is a great photographer who's passion for capturing personality can't help, but be noticed. - Lauren M., Portland Actress

Kelly Mooney Photography is easily rated an A+ rating. Working with Kelly is a breeze. She provided excellent customer service and beautiful pictures. Kelly did a fantastic job photographing my son's senior pictures. She chatted with my son and was able to get him to feel comfortable and relaxed. The venue she chose was fantastic and a perfect match to his style. This was the best experience we've had for a portrait session, and working with Kelly was like working with your best friend. She was always accessible; her email responses were quick - always the same day. I highly recommend Kelly Mooney Photography to anyone wanting beautiful portraits. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. - Rebecca M. | LaSalle HS Parent
