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.
