Field + Bone was founded by Brittany Kelly in 2013 as an online journal to document simple, significant beauty in the every day ordinary. Growing up, her first two decades and formative years, were rooted and raised in small town Mountain Brook, Alabama. There, the importance of heritage and gravitation to the details of treasures and tales that were “passed down from Nana,” wrote a significant foundation into her beliefs of God and the narrative He too has passed down for us to join in on. After half a decade spent in the wild west of Colorado with her husband and two kids, they are now planted in Auburn, Alabama. She creates for a handful of client profiles, both for personal pieces + commercial/branding in the medium of heirloom photography and written story.
Her and her family are also relearning the Southern roots of homesteading on a few acres of their own Southern soil. While she is able to document others living out the voice of the South, it is her greatest privilege to be able to work and grow this special plot of land that her and her tiny tribe call home. Tales of the American South very near and dear.
From a simple journal to a working creative, story-telling studio, I thank the Maker of the stars above to be lucky enough to work with a handful of dream client profiles. Thank y’all for sharing your tales of the American South with us - glasses raised that they may they live on and out for generations to come.
“For me there was a natural path that came with roots of decades-deep-life spent in South. Years written out in heritage calling, and story-telling development from the way people in the South naturally ebb and flow in the every day ordinary. I develop like minded visuals and written story - works drawing from raw, strong, color palates. Untold details, pulled from the slow-paced, vibrant Creations of creamy magnolia blooms, wild kudzoo vines, soft coastal palettes, and thick patches of swaying loblollies. A Southern perspective, adapted by an eye alert for the raw and wild - a perspective honed by my years in Rocky Mountain territory. It is one of my greatest life adventures and passions to story-tell the heritage and timelessness that the South whispers on - those great stories of heart in heirloom quality.”
