Weekly Feature | Chelsea Marie Photography

Hey, Mamas!!! Don't you just love the feeling you get when you look at another photographer's work and instantly connect to it? I (Allison) feel that way when I look at our guest judges work. Chelsea, of Chelsea Marie Photography is insanely talented and we are super lucky to have her with us at the Snappy Mama this week. Make sure you take the time and check out her photos and leave her lots of love!  Now, let's get to know Chelsea.

Where do you hail from?
My heart is deeply rooted in my homestate of Colorado, but in 2013 we transplanted our family to Texas, so my husband could pursue his career.

 If you were going to venture into a genre you currently don't photograph, what would it be and why?

Lifestyle photography is where my heart is. I consider myself a lifestyle photographer and love capturing everyday moments of my family, but I feel like I don't do enough of it for my clients. I want someone to hire me to photograph something as simple as baking cookies together, a trip to the aquarium, a picnic at the park, reading stories on the couch, jumping on the bed, etc. My soul just yearns to preserve those simple moments for others.

 Name a photographer who inspires you?

There are so many photographers who inspire me, but I would have to say I'm most inspired by Sarah Cornish, of My Four Hens Photography. She's just awesome, both as a photographer and a person. The way she's able to capture such tangible emotion in her images is just incredible!

 Give us a photography related goal you hope to accomplish?

I'm currently taking a break from client sessions so I can find my artistic center again. I was getting to the point where I wasn't enjoying photography like I used to, so I knew it was time for a self-reflection. I'm using this break to grow artistically and personally. I'm working on discovering where I'd like my photography to go next.

 If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and what is something you'd like to photograph there?

While we lived in Colorado, I feel like we didn't explore enough of our own homestate. So our plan is to one day move back and I would photograph all of our amazing outdoor adventures!

Don't forget to submit your {new beginnings} photos for this weeks theme! Chelsea picked an awesome theme and there have been some pretty wonderful submissions so far!!! Have a fab week, mamas!

XOXO, Allison and the Mamas
