Meet Chelsea

Hey there, I’m Chelsea!

I am an observer. I like sinking into the background and watching the subtle gestures of people around me; watching the light dance. This is how I see beauty.

I picked up my first camera as a child and it’s been my happy place ever since. I feel like I come alive with a camera in my hands. I am blessed to be the mother of three incredible children. I find my solitude in the kitchen, with their tiny feet dancing around me. So when these precious loves entered my life, my camera and I distanced. But now it’s time for us to come back together as photography will always be my passion.

I enjoy all portrait photography, but I would consider boudoir and newborn sessions my favorites. When the weather is warm you can find me outside photographing families and children. During the cooler months I focus on studio portraits, boudoir, and newborn sessions.

My home is in Middletown, VA, but my heart is in the Outer Banks. The ocean soothes my soul. There’s nothing better to me than a warm cup of coffee and a salty ocean breeze. But as a quick vacation, I love a solo trip walking down every aisle of Target.
