Jena’s Review: “UMMM Hellllooooo! Do you see these photos? We’re professional stock photo models of course and do this all the time—-NOT! I am the most photo awkward person and was really worried that all of our photos would just be ruined by my awkwardness, but man… Chelsea just makes you so comfortable. She’s also […]

Playful, romantic, GLAMOROUS, cozy, cute AF Kicked off the new year (and braved the winter weather) with a morning engagement session with these two newly engaged cutie pies!

I’ve known Chris for years. He was actually one of my very first male models for a shoot when I used to live in LA. We still laugh when we think about how long ago that was! Anyway, I’m so grateful I met him because if not, I would have never been able to celebrate […]

“Don’t hesitate, just book her!” “I found Chelsea through social media, my planner never worked with her and I didn’t know much about her besides her Instagram (she’s hilarious). She wasn’t part of a major photography studio and wasn’t selling crazy packages, she worked solo and it was a risk I was willing to take […]
