Luxury women’s portrait photographer | The Woodlands and Conroe, North Houston, Texas
Chelsea’s immense passion for photography is apparent in all the ways she’s involved in the community. She first received her Bachelor’s Degree in Photography from Sam Houston State University, but being the ambitious woman she is, she wanted to continue to work towards expertise and excellence. So she continued on to earn a certification from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), as well as become an active member of the Texas Professional Photographers Association (TPPA).
Chelsea is continuously working on her craft by attending workshops and classes to stay current in the photography field. She also uses her knowledge and experience to teach her own workshops for PPA and TPPA.
Time for a little hard-hitting flashback, from yours truly: I, like so many other women, struggled silently with body image, thinking it was normal to constantly criticize my looks. This ultimately took a toll on how I viewed my worthiness as a woman because the respect I had for myself was dependent on what people said about me.
When I started my career as a professional photographer, I visibly saw through talk and through poses, these exact thoughts I struggled with for so many years echoed in my own clients.
But what I saw in my clients was vastly different from how they viewed themselves in the mirror: I saw the honest, rare beauty in every single woman. It was then that everything clicked.
I immediately shifted my approach to photography and decided to make it my priority to help women discover their true self-worth — through the lens, yes, but beyond it as well.
The entire Luxury Photo Experience — from the pre-photoshoot consultations to photoshoot day to the printing process — is meant to serve as a reminder to every woman at any size, age, shape, or color that beauty doesn’t discriminate.
Because beauty goes beyond physical appearance — it’s a trait that shines outwards from within.
After many years of working in the photography industry, combined with my own personal journey towards self-love, I have learned exactly how to make my clients feel comfortable and make them feel worthy of capturing their legacy.
The diverse personalities and the confidence women have in themselves is awe-inspiring. That’s why my name tag shifted from plain Portrait Photographer to a luxury Women Empowerment Portrait Photographer.
Through photos, I want to remind my clients every day that they are confident, they are strong, and they are beautiful — something I like to call a “visual positive affirmation.”
Clients walk away with confidence, a legacy to display, and a transformation they can be proud of. Thorough preparation steps are conducted around every client’s needs and wants, so that they know what to expect and feel at ease.
My years of experience as a luxury portrait photographer has taught me all the little ways in which any (seemingly intimidating) photo session can feel like second-nature.
The ultimate goal is to showcase printed artwork women can proudly display for generations to come. I am a master craftswoman who aspires to add an air of class to your space with my top-quality artisanal wall art and photo album options. I make sure that every ordering and decorating process is smooth and intuitive.
A common problem with women is that they want to do a photoshoot but feel hesitant to schedule because of the barriers of self-consciousness. But I always say that’s the exact best time to do a photoshoot.
Photoshoots are the perfect opportunity to boost self-esteem and see yourself for the beautiful person you are.
When you schedule a photo shoot with me, I promise you’re doing more than posing in front of a camera — you’re giving yourself a well-deserved gift. From wardrobe guidance to inspiration photos to a luxe pampering session, all women from all walks of life can relish in the serenity of The Luxury Photo Experience.
