Chelsea's Photography Style

Relaxation · Trust · Play · Adventure

Photography dances with all of my senses & heightened awareness. It’s about tuning in with the subtleties of each millisecond & aligning with the sparks of life. It’s about being present with rhythm & flow... Anticipating while holding space for the organic unfolding. 

My style is dynamic & customized. I am operating on multiple dimensions, constantly scanning the scene & evaluating what is optimal for both the experience & the art. Sometimes my job is to shoot photojournalistic candids & stay out of the way of what is already naturally happening. And sometimes my job is to be your seasoned guide & creatively direct to get “the shot.” I love to add my style & help people feel more natural in front of the camera.

This art is a dialogue & a co-creation. It is alive! Our time together is just as much about the experience as it is about the photos.  It’s about relaxation, trust, play & true adventure. Authentic embodiment happens when we’re simply just being present in the moment, allowing our true selves to shine through. It’s about lightness of being. If you are truly having fun & feeling sincere, I get to capture what is actually really there. Together, we lean into the alchemy.

This work is extremely intimate & personal. It is an honor to be invited into your heartfelt magical moments & life.

Thank you for trusting me to witness your bliss, tears, giggles, quirkiness, beingness & humanity… Your story is uniquely glorious & beautiful. I am taking in the finer details, the sweeping holistic view, the honesty, the emotions… The action & the beingness. I am humbly in service to capturing the essence of it all.  I strive to inspire you & me both with stunning & uniquely personal art you will cherish for the rest of your life.
