About Chelsea, photographer + owner

Hi! I'm Chelsea and right up there is my best friend, Loki. I like hugs more than she does. We like to dance to music together and she won't let me do a crunch without greeting me with a sloppy kiss. My favorite part of the day is coming home to her wiggling all kinds of crazy around the house. She has a magical ability to see me through anything and cheer me up. I think you know what I mean. You have a best friend just like this.

Fun facts
-I have my own pup's paw print and face tattooed on me. Including 18 other tattoos!
-I am obsessed with the outdoors- find me in the mountains or on a lake and I will have a HUGE smile on my face. It's impossible to be in the woods or around a dog and be in a bad mood.
-I am a total pitbull advocate! Tell me you have a pit/staffy/bully and I will gush.
-I had a really hard time writing an about me because I love animals so much that I began sound like a ten year old who uses a lot of exclamation points! ...oops.

Quicky history
I attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia for photography. While in school, I started with event photography to help pay the bills. Once graduated, I moved into full on wedding photography but felt like something was missing. In 2016 I moved to Scranton to be an e-commerce photographer and started putting more focus onto pet photography. Every time I photographed an animal I drive home with a big smile, reminiscing about the animal I had just met and played with. This is how I know that pet portraits are my niche. Now that I am back in the Lehigh Valley, I am diving head first into bringing you the BEST pet portraits possible.

Important stuff
-While I love anything that is fuzzy and walks on four legs, dogs are my passion!
-I am a true believer in what Gilda Radner said- "I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive."
-Nothing brings me more joy than seeing an animal get excited and smile at you. This is why I do what I do. This beautiful pupper smile is what I work to capture. I want to capture all of the smiles, thousand mile per hour tail wiggles, funny out takes, and unique facial expressions that help make YOUR world a better place.

So...here I am. Here to capture those happy, special moments that are such an important part of your life. I am here to give you the ability to hold on to them forever.

Frequently you will see that I am offering special portrait days to benefit local rescues. These sessions are short and sweet but provide beautiful imagery of your best friend while 50% of proceeds benefit a great cause. Do you work for a rescue? Want to set one up? Shoot me an email! I would love to work with you.
