Dear Reader,

My name is Chelo and I was born and raised in 80s/90s Bronx, NYC. I somehow managed to teach myself anything that I was interested in. I was an only child, a latch-key kid, I did't fit in, and all of those things set my imagination on fire.  

I gravitated towards the arts, and studied Vocal at LaG, though I secretly wish I had chosen acting. 

I started tinkering with black & white photography in college.  I sat in Washington Sq Park and waited for the right moments to click the shutter. I developed my own film and printed my own enlargements.  As much as I love to dabble in everything, à la renaissance woman, photography is the one interest that I have never, ever, been able to let go.

It's been 10 years since I started shooting weddings & portraits. 

Don't hesitate to write if you'd be interested in working with me. My boys, my fiancé, and my chiweenie, Sunshine, all send their regards.

Honored you're here,

Chelo Keys
