First of all, welcome! You found my tiny online home base where I get to show you all the fun things we've created and you can come follow along as we tell stories through images. I'm Kelsey, the face behind Dirt Road Photography located just south of Lincoln, Nebraska in a small rural farming based community. I love capturing moments of love and laughter that we often quickly forget without pictures and tangible products to look at from our senior and family photo sessions! I would absolutely love the opportunity to work with you!

"Kelsey with DRP has been the best. Not only does she take fabulous pictures, but also she really cares about her seniors and their parents. She took time to facetime with my daughter and I as we were picking out senior outfits and giving her opinion on how well they meshed together to make a fun and exciting photo shoot. She is so fun and easy to talk to and has been an absolute joy to work with. I’m telling you, you will not regret choosing Kelsey/Dirt Road Photography as your photographer for any of your picture needs especially your senior pictures!!!" - NICOLE P.
“Someone who is incredibly down to earth and has an amazing gift for photography is Kelsey. I honestly don’t see us ever going anywhere else! She made us feel like we were a part of her family. Not to mention she’s pretty much the sweetest person you will ever meet! Oh and my kids LOVE her (that’s hard to find!)” - ALAYNA K.
“Kelsey took the Best Senior pictures of my son!! All of our pictures, photo album and canvas turned out perfect!! So excited to share with family and friends on Graduation day!” - KELLY S.
“Wow reading the reviews below, I feel like a broken record but I 100% agree that Kelsey is simply amazing and I would highly recommend her to everyone!! Our family sessions are surprisingly fun! And the photos are beautiful!! I treasure our yearly family pictures from Dirt Road Photography. Kelsey is blessed with an amazing eye and talent!” - BECKY A.
"Kelsey has been our photographer for both of our youngest boys' Senior pics. I wish she could have done our oldest son's...but she would have been, like...2 years old then. Even so - I'm pretty sure she could have toddled through and been just as amazing at it as she is now! Hahah. She has a gift that must be shared. Kelsey has given everything and then gone the extra mile to give even more. I don't know what we would have done without her!" - SOFIA B.
"Kelsey has done generation, newborn, and family pictures for me. She is laid back, patient and fun. Her pictures always turn out amazing, even when dealing with twin two year olds and a newborn. It takes talent to get 3 kids to look at a camera and somehow it happens with her. Will be returning to her again and again." - MAGGIE B.
"Kelsey was wonderful to work with! She works with an organization called Found Families who takes photos of adoptive families/newborns. While Covid kind of ruined our newborn plans, she was more than happy to take photos of our new "found" family :) She was so nice and great with our daughter. We will use her in the future to take more beautiful photos of our family! Thank you Dirt Road!" - AMBER O.
"We LOVE Kelsey she does a fantastic job! We have been using Dirt Road Photography for 3 years now, ever since my son was a newborn! She has done all of our milestone pictures and family sessions. She is so great with the kids and always captures amazing pictures of them! We wouldn’t use anyone else for our pictures." - CHELSEA B.
“My boys are always comfortable with Kelsey and is shows in the photos she has taken of them! She shows a true interest in the individual during the session.” - ANGIE A.
“Awesome to work with. Always takes the time to get the perfect picture. Even if it’s freezing cold always has a smile on her face and plenty of patients to deal with a senior that wants to get the perfect shot. Great job though love our pictures!” - GINA S.
“Patience doesn't cover what you have Kelsey. You make every session unique and comfortable. So easy to work with, and that's saying something considering the members of my family you've put up with! I love that you take an idea and make it so much more! Already looking forward to our next session!” - HEATHER S.
“Was happy with the pictures taken of our daughter for her senior year. She was willing to drive to Fairbury to capture this special time and then had the joy of getting another last minute session early fall up in Crete! As we planned for ordering products, putting together the book with senior pictures, we visited about making a book from an old CD of images I had, of our old family farm before it was sold and the buildings torn down. She was able to do this and ended up being a breath-taking, speechless response when this book/gift was given to my Dad on Father's day! Kelsey, thank you for capturing so many memories this last year of special times in our family's life, from young to old, you touched it all!” - KRYSTAL S.
“We have used Kelsey for a few years now and have had nothing but great experiences with Dirt Road Photography!! She does a great job getting my kiddos to smile and the quality of her work is amazing!! She definitely cares about her clients. Would highly recommend!” - AMANDA E.
“Our family has used Dirt Road Photography for the last 3 going on 4 years now and I can honestly say we will forever be a client of Kelsey's! Your not just another client to her your family. Our son Maddox loves Kelsey and she is so patient with him. We are so grateful to have found such a kind and talented individual to work with us and she will always be considered part of our family as well. Thank you Kelsey!” - TABETHA C.
