Hi. My name is Chelsea and I would love to take your picture. I am an oversharing, ice cream eating, family loving, smiling mama of one. Hailing from Texas, I now live with my husband, David, my toddler, Rufus, and our dog Wally in the Seattle area.
The photos I take absolutely reflect what I believe to be the most important thing in life; the relationships you have with the people you love. This is what grounds me and helps me with my personal struggles. Laughing, crying, smiling- in motion and in stillness. My goal is to take photos that are whimsical and intimate- filled with light, emotion, and connection. I strongly encourage you to be silly, be in love, be you, and to let me share in that with you. So, let me grab my camera and a coffee, kiss my kid goodbye, and take your picture.
"Chelsea took 4 month photos of my baby girl, Amelia and the gallery I got back from her was nothing short of amazing! The images took my breath away and will forever be something I cherish. Her use of light is beautiful and what I love about Chelsea most is the way she is able to photograph personality. When I look at the photos of my little "Dilly" I can see her quirks, her babbles, and her expressions the way I experience them in real life. How special to look back and be able to relive her young months as I know her phases will change so quickly."
"In addition to her talent, Chelsea came to my home and was not rushed at all during our session which made for a comfortable environment for us and took away all that new mom stress! We chatted about raising little ones and it was just so relaxed and fun. It felt so natural, like chatting with a friend who just so happened to bring her camera! I will definitely be in touch with Chelsea again to document special family moments in the future!"

"Chelsea was incredible to work with. We are a pretty laid back family and my husband does not prefer photos, but Chelsea made him feel so comfortable and confident! Not only did Chelsea always check in on how my daughter was doing and asking if she needed to take a break, she also asked us and made us feel like there was no rush. Words cannot quite describe how cherished our photos are. Thank you Chelsea!!"
- April, Seattle
"Chelsea, these were great photos! You got the essence of our happiness."

"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."
