Hi there! I'm Chelsea - a lifestyle based photographer and designer serving the Northwest Ohio area & beyond.

My passion is finding & preserving magical moments in ordinary life.

I focus on bringing out your beautiful, true-to-you magic by working to get
real pieces of you to shine through in your photos and designs.


>>> connections over perfection. //
PHOTO sessions with me are
lifestyle-based &
loosely posed...


This means while I am taking photos, we are also walking around chatting, joking, and having fun instead of rushing through and stressing about perfection. Along with the beautiful photos looking at the camera, I strive to catch candid shots of real connections and emotions throughout our time together for you to see the little moments of real life in your photos, too. 

I want you to come to your session as your true self(ves),  because we all look our best when we feel like ourselves. I draw inspiration from my clients and their feelings and interests, and want to capture the real you, so let me get to know & see you!
 
Tell me about yourself, your story, what you like, what you hate, what you like to do and where you like to go - tell me anything you want to tell me so we can not only get you photos that truly show you, but also give you a fun and memorable experience. 

Everyone's story is different. Everyone's story is important.
I'd love to help preserve a bit of your story for you!


All of your life's moments - big & small - matter.
Your moments are worth remembering & looking back at. 


Of course those photos of you all looking at the camera smiling will be special to look back at down the road - I know personally it's amazing seeing years later everyone together caught in time at whatever age they were, a piece of history saved in a single photograph. But those perfectly posed shots are NOT going to be the majority of your gallery from our session together.

Want to know what kind of photos will join those classic style photos and is special though, what else deserves to be captured?  That photo of your little one holding your hand, the one where you can see how tiny their hand still was. That shot of your Grandma with your daughter at your wedding killing time just before the ceremony started. Those first moments with your sweet baby after they made their arrival earth side. The way your toddlers eyes squint up just a little when they smile. Those last snuggles with your dog before your new baby comes and rocks your worlds. The way that your love holds the side of your cheek when they kiss you. These are so many more priceless, tiny, forgotten moments are
so much more important than we realize now, and it's my mission to capture as many of them as I can!

This is me!  //  Sometimes when I am out looking for new cool places for sessions I take a few headshots of myself, that's where this photo came from, EXCEPT my awesome son took this one of me instead of a self portrait. If you're looking for a photographer for something in your life - personal family photos, your work, business headshots, pets, events - I am a laid back, mostly natural light (sometimes there just isn't enough light, guys, so when that happens I'm covered!) photographer living in Toledo, Ohio and would love to hear from you! I do travel by request and am happy to help you plan your dream photo session whether it is near or far - let's make some magic!
