It's Time To Get Your Photos Off OF Your Phone
& Into Your Hands!

There's just nothing that can replace being able to touch, see, and enjoy your printed images in your home. In fact, what's even the point of paying for family photos if you're just going to let your digital files pile up on your hard drive? With my custom photography sessions, you won't just get breathtaking photos. You'll also get curated artwork and printed photographs to enjoy every day. Without any of the hassle.

Hey There, I'm Chelsea

When my first son came along - I planned maternity, newborn, 6-month, and one-year photography sessions. By the time my second son came - I still hadn't done anything with my firstborn's photos.

And I’m a photographer!

Finally, I decided enough was enough. I searched online and found beautiful heirloom albums, frames, and prints to display in our home. Now our family's story decorates our walls and fills albums we constantly flip through together. 

If you're ready to experience the joy of having perfectly preserved memories line your walls and enchant albums, I'm here to help!

There is no better time than the present to fill your space with tangible photographs that make your heart sing.

I know from experience how hectic life can be. One minute you've got all the time in the world - the next minute, you're a mom or business owner with multiple responsibilities trying not to forget to eat lunch. 


With years of experience, I know how to make you look and feel confident in front of the camera. Through gentle direction, I'll capture pictures that reflect your family's story with ease and intention. 

Using analogue film, I'll capture the beauty of your family with an artful eye, showcasing true-to-life colors and radiant light. 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.

It's time to simplify photography sessions! With transparent pricing, a client wardrobe, professional hair & makeup, and custom-designed albums & prints, I'll make it easy for you to get beautiful, tangible images in your hands that'll be cherished for generations.

Why I love film Photography 
and you will, too.

Film cameras capture images on light-sensitive paper, resulting in a nostalgic, dreamy aesthetic.

The images are warm, with softness and grain that add emotional character. Even mundane moments feel special on film.

Each shot is a surprise, a blend of light and chemistry - reminiscent of classic fine artistry. This is why it’s known as a luxury medium for capturing portraits on. 

I photograph my clients with medium format film. Yes, like the old rolls of film your Grandparents used.


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.
