My portfolio of favorite photos (chosen by me and by fans and visitors to this site). This is specifically the portfolio for landscape or scenic shots that I have taken, or creative, fine art images. Enjoy my work! It is available for gallery shows, office/home artwork, and general art appreciation.
My portfolio of favorite photos (chosen by me and by fans and visitors to this site). This is specifically the portfolio for portraits that I have taken or photographs of people that came out of weddings or events that I particularly love. I try to bring a fine art appreciation to even candid images. Enjoy my work! It is available for gallery shows, office/home artwork, and general art appreciation.
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. It is a way of combining several photos of different exposures taken in quick succession (or sometimes, a single image), that brings out the highlights and shadows of the scene in a way regular images does not. It can be made to look very surreal (see some of my images) and to look like any other photograph (see more of my images here). I am fascinated by it and determined to explore the technique more. If you like HDR, check out Trey Ratcliffe's work. After viewing mine, of course. Trey is one of the originators of this relatively new style.
Infant and child portraits taken by me- the best will be shown in my portrait portfolio as well. I love taking pictures of kids, catching a special moment or look on their faces is amazing. Contact me by phone or email if you want to use any of these images- in general, I don't sell children's photos online. Thanks for understanding!
*To see tasteful maternity nudes, ask me for the password to see them in the private proof section. Although I have permission to show all of these images, I prefer to protect these beautiful women further with a private gallery*
This is where I am collecting and showing the best of my Maternity and Family Portraits. My very favorite ones will go into the Portrait Portfolio at the top of the page. I love, love, love to do maternity photos. They show the amazing capabilities of the female body to change drastically and produce life. When I was pregnant, I wanted a portrait just to be able to remember how different my body was. My portrait was taken by Carol Cardwell Photography. I'm honored to get to take others portraits at this glorious time of their lives! Family portraits... well, they get to show the love shared between the most important people in your life. What could be better than getting to photograph and capture that?
I'm available for weddings in the SW Colorado area, and also for long-distance travel to photograph your special day! My price varies because I customize my plans to your needs for the day. Contact me for a quote, PLEASE!
Here's a mix of wedding/engagement images that I've been honored to take in my career as a wedding and portrait photographer. I will, of course, keep adding to it as time goes by. These are my favorite images, or favorite images from my clients, and they cover many of the precious moments of the wedding ceremony. Enjoy watching them!
Top 10 from my Flickr page- www.flickr.com/photos/kelleybardphotography
Specifically, these are my top photos in terms of views. The photos and order would probably be different if you looked at it in terms of comments, awards, and/or numbers of people who consider the photo a "favorite".
I recently changed this gallery to only show images with 1000 views or more on HDRspotting.com... I had too many images to keep track of! :)
I've gotten lots of views on HDRspotting.com, which is a wonderful place to go and see mind-blowing HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos. The site drives traffic to your photo page and it's incredibly helpful to see the quality work being done out there in this style. Unfortunately I don't have a "page" there, but search and enjoy the artwork available. I'll list a few of my top viewed photos here, anything with over 1000 views (My highest viewed image is over 5700 views now!). HOPEFULLY the list will keep growing :)
If you go to http://www.hdrspotting.com/HDRPhotoSpot/15113, that is the link for my most viewed image. From there you can look at "more photos from this contributor". It's a random list of a few of my images, but if you click on one, you see more come up. Thanks for the views!
Many of you want to know what they will find at the Kelley Bard Photography Studio- BEFORE you get there. So here's a run-down of many of the props and such that you will find available for your photo shoot. Oftentimes, these can be brought to your location or outdoor shoot, as well (another reason it's nice to show them here, so you can request them ahead of time). Usually I choose a few likely props for your session ahead of time... here, you get a chance to see what we have and make some decisions on props, outfits, backdrops... so you get the perfect photo shoot!
Many of these are for babies, or child portraits, but not all. Please browse through, as you may see something that fits perfect with your outfit... or your ideal portrait.
If you have a request for a specific item, even something not found here, please let us know with enough time to see if we can find or create it. It makes our photo sessions even more enjoyable when you take an interest and come up with a specific look you want! Themed photo sessions are always very creative and fun as well, and it's an honor to be able to create the dream image you have always wanted.
For other photographers, these are collected items that I've found worthy of being photo accessories. Some of these are used in almost every photo session, while others are patiently waiting for their turn. They are all great for inspiration, though!
Lastly, look through my portrait work on this site, and you will see many of these props in action. You can also see some of my other favorites- things in the studio currently- like the baby sling and baby hammock (which both make darling newborn shots). We are always looking for new props and such, as well, so keep asking what's new. For example, I will soon be getting both a simple black backdrop and a GREAT dark pro canvas backdrop... they are going to add so much to the studio!
