Kelly Roper is a natural light child photographer (www.kellyroperphotography.com) whose black and white, quiet photographs, are in real contrast with our fast moving and hectic world. Mother of Addison, 13 and Griffin, 11, Kelly says about her son : “Griffin keeps us laughing with his love for comedy and witty personality. He is constantly on the move playing tennis, soccer and cross country during the school year. When he is not at school or doing homework you can find him outside playing football or shooting hoops with friends. Griffin began film acting last year and had the pleasure of working on commercials, two movies and one television show. You can catch him sometime this year on Cartoon Network’s movie named Neverfail”.

What e-consumer are you? I am very visual when it comes to making purchases for my children. I like to see the actual fit of an item before I make a purchase. The only store that I have made regular online clothing purchases for my children is Crew Cuts. I know how the clothing fits so I don’t have to worry about making mistakes in sizing.

Favorite pieces the children’s wardrobe It has been all about the shoes in our house! My children have developed a sense of style this year with shoes. I don’t have one favorite but I will say I have enjoyed watching the parade of shoes that track across our floor every day. I find shoes to be so expressive and middle school is the perfect time to branch out and wear new styles.
The book on your bedside table I admit I prefer to read online via blogs and such. I do keep up with photography books and right now I am enjoying Annie Leibovitz At Work.
Where do you like to go for the summer Holidays When living in Seattle we enjoyed camping along the Oregon Coast and Eastern Washington. Living in Charleston we find so many lovely towns that dot the coast …. from Wilmington, Hilton Head and Savannah we find many quick escapes close to home.
