A note from Kelsey: There is nothing I value more than the importance of human connection. Photojournalism has allowed me to have a front row seat to some incredible, genuine moments in time and I strive to accurately portray those moments. The laughter between family, the excitement of a three-pointer and the emotions after loss. Honesty is my intention with photography. If someone can look at a photo and feel the reality of the situation, then I know I have made an image.
