Shiny Penny Studios is a Midwest portrait studio focused on vibrant, creative captures and fun photo sessions. Body, positive, celebrating diversity and love.
"As a photographer, I have a unique background in that I got my start on the theatre stage and not behind a camera. My theater directing experience allows me to anticipate moments of natural human emotion and expression that show in my work. Helping you to look your best, is what I do best. I also know a thing or two about great lighting, celebrating diversity and all body types, setting the scene, and wrangling groups of people and pets. " - Keli, owner

Reliable, Creative, and Caring
My fiance and I have used Keli for many different occasions and our engagement shoot was no exception to her brilliant level of creativity and service. Keli's vibe is laid back yet professional. She is fun to be around and really makes you feel like you've known her for a long time, which is good for a photographer. Even for people who are a little uncomfortable posing in front of a camera, you can be sure that each of Keli's photos is incredible and well planned out. I cannot recommend her highly enough for her quality of work. Not only is the product amazing, but the experience is worth every Shiny Penny.Sent on 12/14/2020

Perfect photographer for you
Keli is my go to for all photos. She is perfect. She and my fiancé planned out how to photograph him proposing to me and her capturing it all without me having any idea. It was simply perfect. I will treasure these photos forever and I can’t wait to see how our future wedding photos will be because Keli will 100% be thereSent on 12/07/2020

The Perfect Photographer with the best attitude
Keli not only made me and my fiancé feel comfortable as gay men, but celebrated with us. Trying to find a photographer that is accepting is one thing, but finding one who loves her job is another, and she does both. Not only were the pictures phenomenal, she got us a sneak peek in a couple of hours after the proposal. Keli is by far the best photographer I have encountered. We will be using her for our wedding. She made our experience magical.Sent on 12/12/2020

My theater directing experience allows me to anticipate moments of human emotion and expression that show in my work. Helping you to look your best, is what I do best. I also know a thing or two about great lighting, setting the scene, and wrangling groups of people and pets. (Don't underestimate the abilities of anyone who has directed a community theatre production of Annie, and has lived to tell the tale.)
As a photographer, I have a unique background in that I got my start on the theatre stage and not behind a camera. I learned about framing and group composition by watching theatre directors and choreographers work within the confines of a stage. I received an MA in Theatre (specializing in theatre directing) from Case Western Reserve University where I also served as the primary photographer for the College of Arts and Sciences for five years.
