The Portrait Experience

We are repeat clients of Chelsea’s and I will use her again and again! I am always amazed at how many beautiful pictures she gets in such a short time.

"Where do I even begin on how excellent Chelsea is?! She is extremely creative and captured our best moments as a family."

You're the family who values all of the moments, big and small. You know that babies don't keep, and believe that family photos should live on your walls and in your hands, not just in your camera roll. You appreciate heirloom quality imagery that honors the legacy of your family and all of the generations to come. 

With gentle direction as well as allowing the organic moments to unfold, I'll be the photographer to transform your family photos from cookie-cutter to authentically and magically you.

Nicole, Bride

"Chelsea is the master at discreetly capturing those magical, hidden moments during a wedding that are reminders of how special and important that day is." 

"magical, hidden moments . . ."

ARiana, Mom to be

"She is so personable and kind, and makes being in front of the camera feel so natural and comfortable. Our photos came out gorgeous. She’s got such an eye! If I were you, I wouldn’t hesitate to book her for your next special occasion."

"Beyond expectations!"

Jennifer, 2019 Bride

"As soon as she took on our wedding, she was by my side with advice, tips, encouragement and laughter right up until the last guest left. Chelsea's talent and work speak for themselves, but just as valuable is her work ethic, her professionalism, and her genuine kindness."

"the best and easiest decision we made during the wedding process."

I'll send over a booking proposal for you to look over. To book your date, all you need to do is electronically sign the proposal and provide a 30% deposit that goes toward the total cost! Once your date is officially reserved, I'll send over a few things to help you prepare for the day. I'm happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, outfit guidance and more!

My favorite part of what I do is getting to know the people who I have the honor of photographing. Before you secure your date with me, I'd love to set up a coffee date or Skype call to meet you face-to-face. This will make planning your experience going forward even more tailored to your unique needs.
