About Chelsea

In this way, I've got a knack for finding beauty in the unconventional. In the places we forget to look. In the imperfect - which all of us are.

So even if you think you're 'un-photogenic', or awkward in front of the camera, I'll bring that beauty right out of you -every time.

Mainly because it's already there.



What inspires me most?

Beauty in all of it's forms.

I don't want you, your life, or your relationships, to be a place you forget to look.

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 and sweet two year old boy 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.

SKILL

Peace to be present

My photographic style honors the beauty of family by capturing your unique one 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 of your toddler, 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.

Why Hire Chelsea Sliwa Photography?

You've got a thousand things on your plate from dinner, doctors appointments to dishes. Rest assured that I am devoted to taking the guesswork out of your family photography. Transparent pricing, outfit guides and shop-able looks, and in-gallery print & album ordering. I believe wholeheartedly in the necessity of tangible photographs for you and your family to enjoy for generations. That's why I make it almost too easy to get beautiful images that live on your walls, not just your camera roll.
