I'm chelsea

IT’S so NICE TO MEET YOU,

My favorite things are my home after a long day. The smell of asphalt after a summer storm. My husband’s Saturday morning coffee ritual. I strongly value history and tradition and I honor that where I can in my life. From trying to recreate classic French-Creole recipes from our hometown of New Orleans to collecting vintage toys and books to tuck away for our future kiddos, I find daily ways to dive into the past and pay homage to memory. I think that's what drew me to wedding and family photography. The importance of creating memories and of cementing them in time. 

When I look through photos from throughout my life, the recollection is so strong that I can, if I let myself, be transported back. It’s the details in the snapshots -- the subtle, imperfect moments that flood my heart with the warmth of nostalgia and leave me reminiscing long after I walk away. It’s the in-between moments that tell my life’s story. These are the stories I want to tell - the stories inside your wild, imperfect, beautiful moments. I want to capture the tiny details that make you you. I want you to look at these pictures in twenty years and find yourself right back here.
