Few things can rival a riveting sunset on a gorgeous beach, the unabashed laughter of a toddler or the warm embrace of a loving family.

While the moments may be all too brief, Hilton Head Photographer Kellie McCann can capture them for life.

With an eye for magical moments, ideal lighting and technical perfection, Kellie is more than a photographer. She's a portrait artist who puts her heart and talent into every photo session.

With over 17 years of experience as a professional portrait artist, Kellie has honed her craft, striving with each new image to create breathtaking heirlooms that will hang on her clients' walls for decades to come. She is the best beach photographer Hilton Head has to offer, and specializes in family, children, and high school senior portrait photography.

Originally from upstate New York, her passion for photography began in high school. She knew even then that it was her calling and followed her heart to Rochester Institute of Technology's esteemed photography program where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photojournalism.

After graduation, she freelanced as a photojournalist for newspapers across the eastern United States. Widely published across the country and the world, her work earned numerous awards, including recognition by the South Carolina Press Association for spot news, feature and lifestyle photography.

Her work brought her to a local newspaper in Hilton Head where she was a staff photographer for five years before taking the next leap and founding Kellie McCann Photography so she could concentrate fully on portrait photography and documentary weddings.

Because of her experience and education in the field of photojournalism, her eye has been trained to capture the decisive moment in her imagery. She constantly pays attention to the fine details as well as capturing the emotions that occur naturally. She has a talent for taking family portraits that are relaxed and not over posed, for making children, babies and adults feel comfortable and using her surroundings to create backdrops that will infuse her portraits with just the right mood.
