Choose Your Sessions/Services






I have always enjoyed photographing pregnancy announcements, maternity photos, newborn photos, and family. However, now that I have experienced these things myself it gives me a whole new perspective and therefore gets me even more excited! 

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 e-mail 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!

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.

Why I Created The Milestone Collection

- Payton h.

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 of this great experience was the beautiful heirloom album at the end!

The Milestone Collection Process

the process


"One of the first pieces of advice I received after finding out I was pregnant was: "Make sure you do a maternity session and get photos of you and your husband while you're pregnant, your little one will cherish them one day".

Chelsea did such an amazing job, made us feel so comfortable and natural (I tend to be very awkward in front of the camera) and truly captured some of the most special moments in our lives.

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. :) 

EEEK!! I'm smiling already.
