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.



Portrait Photography Designed WITH YOUR LOVE IN MIND . . .

Your memories will be documented as Beautifully & effortlessly as they are created. 

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."

From the initial meeting, to the final delivery of your images, I promise to be there for it all. Whether it's guidance on outfits, locations, or posing, I am here. All you have to do is show up and be you, and you'll absolutely love the results. .

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 Zoom call to meet you face-to-face. This will make planning your experience going forward even more tailored to your unique needs.

PLANNING

One of my favorite parts of my job as a photographer is bringing your vision to life. Don't have one? That's even better. We can chat over coffee or the phone so I can get to know you and your goals for the session. Are you looking for romantic bridal photos, a professional headshot that shows the world who you are, or a family session that you can treasure in 20 years? I pride myself on listening to you and creating a personalized photo vision. Next, let's bring it life!

This is where the fun begins!

Shoot Day 

Most people feel a little awkward when being photographed at first. Fear not, though. I've photographed countless people and invested in industry-renowned education that have taught me how to make you feel and look your absolute best in photos. You're going to feel like a professional model within minutes.
