Kerlyn Van Gelder Photography

I’m a wife, momma, and Corpus Christi photographer, serving Texas, Oregon, and beyond! I believe in God’s grace in my life, constantly am wanting to chop my hair, and dig traveling with my tribe. My son has ASD (autism) and I am a passionate supporter of all his needs. I cannot even begin to express how much he has inspired my work! We’ll jam folksy music together, you’ll create new memories with your loved ones, and I’ll get to know your story along the way!

i’m restless. things are calling me away. my hair is being pulled by the stars again.

why it matters

I am a curator of intimate moments and soulful storytelling, whether its on the babbling creeks or even in your own backyard. I want to help foster the goodness that is already there and capture photos that truly encompass everything in your life - vulnerable moments, laughter, each soft touch - through my artistic view. My passion is to tell your authentic story + to create beautiful photos with an experience from beginning to end that leaves you feeling something more as a mother, as a couple, or as a family.

Your Experience

I am an artist and a planner and am there every step of the way - from offering a client wardrobe, choosing magical locations, and CREATING a one-of-a-kind experience from beginning to end! I seek the honesty of feelings that you are unable to put into words and the details that make up your magical life, by getting to know you, your heart and everything that matters most!
