Heeeellllloooo Dating Divas!! I am SUPER excited to be a part of this amazing Dating Divas team! I have been following The Dating Divas for years and jumped at the chance to be able to join their team and help out with the photography, and I feel so incredibly blessed that they chose ME! Pinch me because it still doesn’t feel real, yet here I am writing a blog introducing myself!!
(I like to give credit where credit is due so thanks Amanda Sause Photography for the family photos!)
So, about me: My name is Chelsea and I have been blissfully married for 7 years to my husband, Monty. We have three little blessings in our life, Evan who is 4, Ethan who is 3 and Miss Emelyn who is 15 months old! Three kids in 4 years and that is what my husband likes to call DONE! Ha! We shall see 😉 I have another girl name picked out, just in case! So besides my husband and kiddos, I love coffee and red wine, candles but I hate to burn them (I’m getting better), I’m addicted to children’s books and a huge Baylor fan, sic ’em bears!! I love to jam out and sing really loud, I LOVE to be creative and I love a challenge! My best quality is patience, I’m easy going, super colorful and very friendly; I love photography because it lets me be creative and challenges me to create memories and moments that are unique for each individual and family. The best part of my job is that I get to work with squishy little babies and energetic children! And guess what Fort Worth, Texas?!? I’ll be moving back September 1st!!!
I went to school at Baylor University and got my degree in Early Childhood Education. I always knew I wanted to teach. I would skip recess in 6th grade to help out in the Kindergarten classes, it was such a passion. But after teaching for two years and then getting pregnant, I realized I had a bigger passion, MY kids, and I became a stay at home mom. Now I’m not “technically” a mom that picked up a camera and called myself a photographer, even though I’m a mom, I got a camera and I’m now a photographer
I worked at a photography studio for 4 years in high school and summer after college, and learned a TON about photoshop. Since I got my first camera in 2009 I have taken a basics class, 2 newborn workshops on safety and posing, a fashion/wedding workshop and a stylized children’s workshop! I’ve watched a ton of videos, been in critique classes for my work and countless other photography related sessions on the internet. I’m continually learning and growing to spark my creativity and bring my clients new and exciting things! Which brings me to THIS exciting news… a GIVEAWAY!!!
This giveaway will give some of you a DOUBLE chance to earn FREE sessions from me! I am giving away an entire newborn session FREE and an entire family session FREE!
