About Chelsea

I delight in helping busy Mom's preserve their family's precious memories through timeless & tangible photographs that adorn their homes. 

Meet Chelsea

minute is how long it'll take you to feel comfortable in front of my lens.



boys light up my life: my husband Kyle & two my son's Luke and Isaac.


I remember when my firstborn son came along. We scheduled the sessions for maternity, newborn, 6 months and one year. And then my second son came along, and I still hadn't done anything with my firstborn's photos.

And I'm a photographer!

Until one day, I decided enough was enough.

I scoured the internet and found beautiful heirloom albums, frames & prints that I was excited to see in my home. So now, my family's story adorns my walls & is bound in books for us to flip through together.  

Which we do, often.

You can, too. That's where I come in.


cameras come with me to each session; a film camera & a digital camera.

Art, music, architecture, people. you name it. There is such timeless beauty and wisdom in the aging.

All things old

The mountains return to us the gifts of wonder and astonishment which is so easily stolen by our modern world. 

The Mountains

My husband & two sons are my everything. They show me what love is each and every day and allow me to see it and capture it in my client's families with ease.

My Family

My faith is the foundation of my life. God’s grace, mercy, and love sustain my marriage, my creativity and my business.


My Favorite Things

The years of experience I have photographing people gives my clients the sense of calm to be present at their session. With a healthy mix of gentle direction as well as observation, I choose each photograph with intention. Skilled in both analogue film & digital mediums, how to flatter every body, and countless compositional theories, you can be confident that you're in the hands of a professional.

Peace to be present

My photographic style honors the beauty of family by capturing yours with an artful eye for an elevated elegance. I specialize in true-to-life color and that dreamy film quality that will make your images look more like paintings than photographs. My focus is on more than just your smiling faces, but the curls in your toddler's hair, the dimpled knuckles of your newborn and the way your eyes light up when you're looking at them. Each gallery tells the full story, from the tiniest details, to the whole family, smiling together.
