Let’s talk about being spontaneous. .
I texted Kandace last night at like 11pm and asked if they were down for a snow sesh in the am.  Within minutes we were planning outfits, location & time.. boom.  All smiles when I showed up at 8am this morning.  That’s my kinda peeps. .
I am the definition of spontaneous.  Sometimes I have to tone it down because I am a mama, but let me tell you if there’s a unique opportunity or a new place to visit & I’m able... I AM THERE.  My best work is done when I am spontaneous & relaxed.  Don’t get me wrong, I have a hand written planner that I write in every. single. day. BUT creativity doesn’t always sprout from a notepad. .
Alsooo - If I pull you aside on your wedding day because I see some bomb lighting or a photo opportunity - just trust me!  I know what’s up & you hired me for a reason. A lot of wedding days feel so rushed.  Everyone’s worried abt their guests sitting for 5 more minutes, or feels like they shouldn’t walk away from the reception bc Aunt Peggy said that’s rude.  Nah.  Do you. It’s your day, your way.  Or just make the decision to elope like these two ⇡ and make your life a lot easier.  Hehe jusssaayin. .
Yeah this is a really long caption.  PS- this is my dress & if you’re a client of mine & ever want to borrow something, just let a girl know.  My parents taught me to share.

When I first started my business, I thought the best part would be setting my own hours, being able to be more present for my kids.  But today, it goes much deeper. My favorite thing about being a photographer is being able to freeze time.  I often refer to it as my superpower!  I mean moments like this NEED to be documented.  THIS is why I do what I do.

I don’t have a cool caption today so this is what you get. You’re welcome.

The best way to spend your anniversary: running around in the mountains, potentially freezing your butt off like these two did, but having loads of fun along the way and most importantly? Creating new, beautiful memories together while I capture the whole thing. 💙🏔

Exciting news! My fiancé and I are closing on a HOUSE in less than a month! So, we're moving to Woodland Park/Colorado Springs. To celebrate this positive news, I am rolling out the Boho Bronze edit collection. I have always loved timeless bronze/rose warm tinted photographs but I haven't been able to achieve the look I wanted with the detail I wanted...until now!

To celebrate our move and Silver Lining Boho Bronze, I am offering FREE mini sessions to the first 4 people who comment on this post! Mini sessions will be scheduled within 20 miles of Woodland Park ONLY!

I remember while attending a art class in college the professor telling the class “you have to be born with a good eye”. All I could think of was, “I wasn’t born knowing how to cook yet I do pretty good”. Knowledge, persistence, and application are the key. But heck, any way I have two good eyes.

Success. It looks different for everyone. Everyone defines it differently.  Am I successful because of what I produce, or because of what I accomplish?  Can I be content and happy without success? Will I ever be truly satisfied with my success, or will I always be craving more? 
These are questions I’ve regularly asked myself.  But here’s the thing, I do what I do because I love it, not because of the success it can bring me.  When it stops becoming about success and more about using my talent to bless other people, then I’m winning.  It can be so easy to compare yourself to other people, to their success and accomplishments.  But when you start with simply loving yourself, loving what you do and who you do it with, that is when the real success comes. 
The only person I need to be better than is the one I was yesterday ❄️💙

I was recently asked “what’s been the hardest change/thing for you regarding pregnancy so far?”
•
And I sat & thought for a second...”nausea? Cramps? Random headaches? Random exhaustion...?” But then replied with, “right after we moved, we found out we were pregnant, but then I found out a lot more about myself than ever before. The change in photography clientele & business was the hardest part for me. And it’s not even extremely relative to pregnancy. It’s just happening at the same time as pregnancy.”
•
I want our little girl to know she can create a living for herself that’s supported by her talents & passions & God gives abilities. I want her to see me chasing & accomplishing mine & think “I can too.” So it was humbling & tough for me when after 2.5 years of consistent photography work I suddenly hit a wall of nothing.
•
You don’t realize how much ya love something until it’s gone amirite? But now that I’m in the 2nd trimester, the energy has picked back up & the nausea has subsided, this baby girl has been my biggest motivation. To not only not give up on New Mexico as a state where I CAN create a community & clientele. But to also see myself as capable beyond photography. Whether that’s through freelance design work or Instagram/video/blog work.
•
Baby girl also doesn’t have a clue how much she’s gonna become the star of the show (& my photography portfolio) when she gets here.😏😍

Happy Friday! PRAISE THE MAKER!!! *insert something witty, deep, meaningful, or inspiring* cause my brain is just too tired after one of the longest weeks ever to think of something original.

I should be caught up on editing after this weekend, so if you’re waiting on photos from me, they are coming your way SOON! Thank you for being so patient with me while my girl goes through the clingiest stage she’s ever gone through. We’re doing our best over here. Mom life is HARD y’all. I’m so thankful for my amazing couples and mamas!

Have you ever tried to sum yourself up in a few words?⁣
⁣
No? Well, I’ll tell you - as someone who has to do it often in building a brand and a business - it’s freaking hard!⁣
⁣
It’s not just because we’re complex creatures (which we are) or because we’re biased (we’re that too). I honestly think that we just don’t put a whole lot of thought into it. After all, we think, I’m just me. 🤷🏻‍♀️⁣
⁣
But in the interweb world - Friday’s are the day to introduce yourself (🤔). So I’ll give you yet another shot at summing up me (complexities and biases included). ⁣
⁣
I’m Chelsea. A favored one. A wife to Kyle. A mother to Todd the (crazy) cat. A photographer with an immense appreciation for the gift of communion: the sharing of one’s life with their Creator, with another, and with the world around them. It’s in communion that we find our calling — to love. ⁣
⁣
So, to sum it up, I’m here to capture that truth, communion, with as much joy, creativity and grace as I can muster. Because your calling to love deserves to be remembered. ⁣
⁣
Drop an emoji or two below that sums you up! 👇🏼 why didn’t I do that to begin with 🤔⁣

Parenting a neuro-atypical kid is a wild ride as well as a lonely one.  ADHD is like an iceberg where only 1/8 is visible, the rest is hidden under the surface.  People only see the hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention. They don’t see the learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, neurotransmitter deficits, weak executive functioning, impaired sense of time, sleep disturbances, and low frustration tolerance to name a few. 
Being Grayson is a new body of work exploring world of ADHD & dyslexia.

Aunt Linda, my mother and Aunt Debbie, 1963, Uniontown, Pennsylvania⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This photo reflects my family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Debbie was six when my parents married. She was a flower girl at the wedding. Both Deb and her sister, my aunt Robin, called my mother their personal Jackie Onassis. Easy to see why!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Linda is loud, boisterous, committed to her faith and bawdy, all at once.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Linda is an aunt in the best sense. Her mother and my maternal grandmother met at nursing college during the war. Linda and my mom are months apart and grew up like sister cousins. So she is Aunt Linda and her two daughters are my cousins.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Growing up in this kind of family of choice, I learned family is more than DNA. Family is loyalty and showing up and caring for another like a blood relative. Put forth the effort, at weddings, during vacations, at funerals, at Christmas and birthdays, with phone calls and letters. Friends may well become kin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

New profile picture! I took this on my Nikon D3300, which I have quickly grown to know and love. I figured it was about time for the obligatory “photographer takes picture with their camera” photo, and now I’m sharing it with you guys! 😂
What do you shoot on, fellow photographers? Do you have a “go-to” setup that you couldn’t live without now? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!

For anyone that I have yet to meet in person, let me tell ya I’m a pretty normal guy with an incredible photographer 💩 stance. You’ll see it in the last photograph. I think it’s easy to take ourselves waaaay too seriously on this little platform when in reality many of us are basically living hot-pockets roaming this earth wondering what’s next. That being said, I’m the face behind this business and I’m so blessed to be able to do something I love as my job. I couldn’t do it without all of you amazing people that trust me with your important days. I mean that with my whole heart.

Ever wonder what our shoots like from the other side of the camera? When we bring our portable headshot station, just like this! (Swipe for the final result!)
-
This saves our client the time of traveling to a studio, and allows us to shoot right in their office or wherever is convenient for them! We’re clean, simple, and we’re always respectful of our clients space.

These shots were taken earlier this week with CoreNet Colorado at Cushman & Wakefield in Downtown Denver, and we think they came out pretty amazing!

Check out our stories for more of a behind-the-scenes look!

Cuddles in the last few days being an only child 💙 that time is such a special one. The anticipation of adding another baby while loving your first baby as much as you can is so beautiful.

I got in from Colorado the other day and I gotta say, I think it was showing out a little bit while I was there. They got record breaking snow-fall for the month of February and it was like a scene from a movie every where I looked. Stinkin’ magical. ✨ So don’t mind me, just trying to find a reason to go back asap

😣 I hate that you can see the line that separate the last 2 photos, but it serves its purpose 🙇🏻‍♀️.

I’m not usually one to wish away winter because I absolutely love the snow... buuuuut I’m so ready for green grass and warm days. Mostly because it means less of this 👉🏻🤧 and more of this 👉🏻🥾

Took some time away to take part in this incredible FFA. The entire reason I got into photography in the first place was to just have fun, an outlet to express a bit of creativity and I believe that editing this image really brought that joy back to me. Shout out to @tomdewh and @caitlinchristinee for putting on this incredible FFA. •
