About Me

Take in the beauty

About me

Hey there! I am Kela the face behind Kela Stout Photography. I am a mother of three beautiful babies and a military spouse. We travel the world and enjoy taking in all the beauty it has to offer. Living in New Mexico, Florida, Germany and now Illinois (near St. Louis, MO), we can’t imagine life being any different. We have been able to see so many beautiful places and meet so many unique people. 

Since starting my photography journey I have continued to pour my heart and soul into each image I take. I pay attention to the tiny details and edit with precision so when you receive your art you are completely blown away.

As a mother, I know first hand that precious moments come and go in the blink of an eye. I want to capture those memories for you and create heirloom art that can be hung on your walls and cherished for many years to come.

“Kela was amazing with our family and braved a chilly wet day with us. Her photos are beautiful and she couldn’t have been more lovely to work with. Highly recommend to anyone looking to capture some great memories!”
