Capturing The Authentic And Sincere Moments You'll Treasure

If you are looking for stiff, staged, awkward portraits with a cheesy background, then I am probably not your girl! I want to meet you in your home, at the beach, or in your favorite park; a place of your  choosing that is entirely personal and special to your family, for some gorgeous, natural photos.

My goal is to melt into the background and let you and your family live your life. I'll jump in if I have to, with suggestions to keep you looking your best, but overall I want you to be relaxed and acting natural. And don't worry, I won't miss a second of it with my camera! I strongly encourage you to be silly, be in love, be you, and to let me share in that with you.

"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."

Memories That You Can Hold In Your Hands

Images are such a precious commodity; they tell stories, they help you relive moments, they evoke powerful emotions. I want you to love every image that you receive from your photo shoot, which is why I meticulously edit each of your 30+ images with a suite of professional tools. I'll work with you until you are completely satisfied with your photographs.

And if you love the digital images, you're going to go crazy over prints! From sweet miniature coffee books to fully framed canvas prints, you have a wide array of options. I only use the best quality printers and framers, so you will not be disappointed with the results. Overall, you will be amazed with how much of a difference being able to physically hold and touch your photos makes.

"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!!"

The Woman Behind The Camera

Family+Pumpkins.jpg

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. I mostly work in and around the Pacific Northwest, but am always open to travel opportunities.

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. So, let me grab my camera and a coffee, kiss my kid goodbye, and take your picture.
