Your portrait sessions are an important investment-- it's completely understandable that you you want to make the most out of it! Between coordinating outfits with your partner or family, deciding on the perfect time and location, and maybe even scheduling hair + makeup, it can be very overwhelming!
Allow me to take one more thing off of your plate! I offer complimentary rentals from my client closet stocked with beautiful dresses that are both comfortable and photograph beautifully. No need to worry about what colors or prints will look best, if the cut will be flattering, or if your online order will arrive on time for your scheduled session. All of that research has already been done for you as I curated this closet specifically with YOU in mind!
I come to your session equipped with a variety of wraps/swaddles so we can get your little one looking like the sweetest little baby burrito for photos. This helps baby to stay nice and cozy and content for the duration of your session. Don't worry -- you can sit back and relax while I do it for you!
Your portrait sessions mean so much more than simply posting a few digital photos on social media. You're investing in lifelong memories and the ability to revisit this sweet season with your family again and again.
It's easy for the intention of printing your own images to get away from you once you are fully enthralled in parenthood. And that is completely understandable! But you still deserve to have your images in tangible form beyond a digital hard drive.
Once your Milestone Collection is complete, I'll curate the design of your heirloom album to best tell your family's story. Imagine your little one being able to flip through its pages to see mom + dad finding out about the pregnancy, how beautiful mama looked while pregnant, all the way through newborn and family photos. This is a hand-crafted timeless piece that will be passed on for generations to come. The Ultimate Baby Book!
+ 10 x 10 legacy album (10 spreads)
+ your choice of linen cover and debossing cover text (option to upgrade to leather or suede)
+ shipping to your doorstep

When we met Chelsea to photograph our first session, I knew I'd made the right choice. She was amazing behind the camera and so personable. The final piece of the Milestone Collection is the Heirloom Album and ohhh my heart. I'm so in love with it. I cannot wait to show my son when he's older and to have this beautiful album forever."
"I'm already excited for our next baby so that we can go through this process again!

We were so incredibly pleased with Chelsea's professionalism, yet friendly and nurturing nature. She's so great at guiding us on what poses are best and even helping us with picking out our outfits. The best was receiving our photo album, which we look at ALL THE TIME! Looking forward to becoming a Milestone Mama again!"
"We absolutely LOVED our entire Milestone experience.

We booked a Milestone Collection so we could easily relive the sweet moments of expecting our first baby. Chelsea made me & my husband feel so comfortable during every photo shoot, and was even someone I could lean on to discuss my difficult delivery during the newborn session."
"The cherry on top was the beautiful heirloom album at the end!

become a milestone mama
Becoming a mama to Sylas has been the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced and it's been such a pivotal season in my life. I've never felt such conflicting emotions at the same time -- already nostalgic for how little my son was yesterday, yet anxiously awaiting the milestones he has yet to reach as he grows.
I wish I could relive his birth (well, maybe not the 30 hrs of labor part) to feel that incredible, spiritual, overwhelming rush of love over and over again. I want to bottle up all of these sweet moments during these ever so fleeting days so that they never feel far away. To me, the closest thing to doing that is through photographs! Which is why I am so very grateful we invested in documenting our whole journey to parenthood with professional images.
Now that I have experienced these things myself it gives me a whole new perspective and gets me even more excited to provide both imagery + support for my clients!
The best part about this package is we will get to work together for the next TEN months or more! We will work together for each of your photo sessions, potentially even talk through the birth experience, and you will receive the most beautiful album to cherish each of those moments for the years to come. I don't take it lightly that you would be letting me in on such a special, intimate, and vulnerable part of your life. So yes, I might tear up a little when I get that booking email from you. I can't wait to see your sweet belly grow, witness you fall even more deeply in love with your partner, and watch you step into this new role as a mama as you receive God's greatest gift!
I know you are probably nervous to take this next step because it might mean you are spilling the beans to someone about your big news. But please know that your secret is safe with me and I won't tell a soul until your announcement photos are officially out in the world!
I am incredibly honored that you are interested in having me along this crazy, beautiful ride with you. I cannot wait to document the most joy and greatest love you've ever felt.
collections begin at $2,100 and include a minimum of two sessions and an heirloom album
