Hi! I’m Chelsea and...

I see you. I know how deeply you love and how you dream of seeing a true reflection of yourself as a mother in pictures.

You struggle, you laugh, you love, you comfort- let’s make some photographs that show you authentically, that will also show your kids how loved they have always been.

In a nutshell:

  • Making moms feel beautiful, loved and seen is my jam.

  • My job is to help you get your photos into your home. I want you to smile at those pics daily.

  • This is about creating a real and artistic legacy for your family.

As for me, I live in Seattle, hail from Texas, and love to travel. The walls of my little 1920s house, where I live with my four year old, husband and terrier, are covered in art and family photos. I can most often be found eating ice cream, reading, watching Bravo, or smothering my child.



Do you know that little thrill and tingle you get in your heart when you print your holiday cards? Take a moment to think about the warm and sweet nostalgia you feel when you go home to visit your parents and you look through old photographs? Happiness from your printed photos is REAL.

I believe that your photos should not live in a gallery, on a USB stick, or in the cloud. Or rather, I think they should be there, safe and sound, while tangible printed albums and framed prints surround you in your home. You will feel happier, I know it.


Kind Words from My Clients


All The Heart Eyes


Jayme, Bothell

“Chelsea is an incredible artist! She captured my family beautifully. She has an eye for the raw, natural beauty that lies within motherhood, families and of course, kids! I’m typically not a fan of having my picture taken, but she made me feel beyond comfortable and beautiful. Not to mention that my son couldn’t love her more. Upon receiving my photos, I cried. I saw myself as a mother for the first time. These pictures are beyond priceless to me now, I can’t imagine how I will cherish these as the years pass. I was so surprised what she did with one hour. She got so many different types of shots and we had so many favorites in our gallery. It was so fun to give photos as gifts to our family and frame them for our home. We will be using Chelsea for all our family photography in the future.”

“Chelsea has been our best experience by far! Her location and timing suggestions provided a stunning backdrop for our photos. She was fantastic with our 4 boys and gave great directions for us all. We are already excited for our next session- the end results were better than I could have ever hoped! She is professional, communicative, extremely talented and made the experience perfect from start to finish. I highly recommend!”

Sarah, Kirkland

“Chelsea is amazing at what she does. She made my baby and toddler feel comfortable and captured the images I was hoping for. She helped me pick out which ones to print and what size to buy for my wall space. I’m already booking her again for another photo shoot when my daughter turns one and possibly head shots for my husband. She will be our go-to photographer from now on.”

Elise, Seattle

“I met Chelsea after observing her shoot a friend's wedding where she made fast friends with my four year old son. Both at the wedding and in my home, she slipped into the background allowing us to just do our thing while not missing a second of it. This style helped all of us to feel relaxed and helped her capture us in action instead of staged shots. She's so great with kids-she took my son's suggestions for shots and embraced him as her assistant as he worked to adjust his camera settings whenever she did.”

“I would highly recommend Chelsea Macor Photography to capture your precious moments! She takes the time to ensure that you and your loved ones are completely comfortable. I have never had a photographer treat my family the way she did. She pays attention to detail, and each of her photographs show this! My 2 year old was completely at ease around her, and I was astonished at how incredible our pictures came out! The pictures she takes will be some of your life’s greatest treasures! Definitely put your trust in her!!”

Becca, Fall City

“Chelsea was a godsend. Working with her, especially with a toddler, to take family photos was completely stress free. She truly knows what she’s doing. I’ve worked with her for family photos, blogger photos, and styles sessions and I just cannot get enough of her work! So many of the walls in my house are filled with her work. If you’re looking for someone who genuinely cares about your story, takes stunning photos, and is just plain fun to be around...look no further! ❤️”

“Chelsea was the first professional photographer I've ever hired and I have no doubt she's the best. When we had to take our outdoor family session indoors last minute due to bad weather, she found a backup studio with amazing natural light. She was able to get my toddler to open up, and captured great photos that are now cherished memories! I would hire Chelsea again in a heart beat and look forward to working with her again in the future. She truly has a great eye and produces wonderful photography.”
