I’m Kelsi and I am so thrilled that you’ve found my favorite little corner of the internet. Here I blissfully share all of my favorite things which, of course, includes my photography, but don’t be surprised if you find some lifestyle posts, favorite clean beauty finds, and bits of motherhood sprinkled in. If you’re here to chat about a a photography session, I added a nifty little link below that’ll zip you right to the FAQs so that I can get to answering all of your questions. If you’re here to browse, welcome! My blog is a super fun place to hang out and catch up on all things Kelsi Bailey Photography!

Take a peek at what I’ve been up to lately..

let’s make some magic



My home newborn sessions yield classic + timeless images. With gentle baby led posing, we will capture your sweet new bundle in an environment that is authentic and genuine. The days are long but the years are short so I promise to hit ‘pause’ for you to ensure that you’ll always remember how they felt when they were brand new.


Chaos is bliss and lifestyle family sessions are the BEST! Sure, we’ll grab the traditional ‘look and smile’ but then we will tickle, giggle, run + play…because I want you to see all the beauty, love, and warmth that I see when I look at you.


My studio newborn sessions are simple and sweet. I invite you to join me in my cozy studio space in downtown O’Fallon, IL to capture your sweet baby with a natural and organic feel. With gentle baby led posing, you’ll find that you don’t need fancy props or intricate posing to yield beautiful photos. But don’t worry, I’ve got plenty of neutral blankets and minimalist style furniture to make you look and feel right at home.

A little magic can take you a long way.
