I know what it's like to be on the other side of the lens, so I'll make it fun to have your photos taken.

Hi I'm Chelsea

I live in Southern MN with my husband and adorable dog, Rogi! I’ve been “behind the lens” professionally for about eight years now, and I’m so excited you’re here!

I love to genuinely get to know my clients so I can make them feel extra special and comfortable during our sessions. I have a contagious zest for life and I want you to feel that, too! My goal is to make you excited to have your photos taken, rather than dread being in front of the camera. I strive to document your special moments with a sense of enthusiasm, comfort, and mindfulness.

raves and reviews

Chelsea is an amazing person, very easy going, and listened to all of our wishes for our big day with an open mind and some great feedback. She captured all of our big moments better than we could have asked for. We are so grateful to Chelsea!

Chelsea has done photos for my son over the years and also family photo sessions. She is so bubbly and fun to work with! She takes your ideas and creates them into something fun and memorable. Highly recommend!

I have worked with Sage River Studios multiple times now and have always been over the top pleased with the results! I have two small children and Chelsea is an absolute pro at finding fun ways for them to pose and producing pictures with smiles on their faces. I would highly recommend Sage River Studios and wouldn't go anywhere else!
