As a child, Kelley Chaplain loved making up her own stories along with reading books. It was a chance to visit a magical place or create a happy moment; all through imagination.
As an adult, the imagination continued. Stories that she created with her nephews and centered around celebrating Birthdays, were a way to stay connected as they live on opposite sides of the United States.
Her company “Dreams Never End LLC”, includes her photography and writing children’s books.
Along with her mission to be able to donate funds to organizations that help children and animals, she hopes to encourage more awareness around the wonders and joys of reading.
“Reading gave me encouragement. It helped build awareness of the world and gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams. Dreams are not easy to achieve; but through hard work and determination, they can come true.” - Kelley
Dreams Never End LLC is so much more than being a photographer and author; it is about being a part of helping one realize their dreams and feel celebrated. She looks to capture this in her photos of children opening a book, seeing the magic of that story in their eyes. Every photo session includes a book for each child as a gift from Kelley. She has also created a Greeting Card line through her photography where all profits benefit charities.
You can see her photos of children reading with curiosity, along with the selection of Greeting Cards on her photography website:
Kelley lives in California with her husband, their dog Guinness, and cat Tigger. She and Guinness are always thinking of the next children’s book they can write together. With Tigger’s approval, of course.
