  • About ChelseaLee Photography

    Welcome to my blog, I am so glad you found me! ChelseaLee is my first and middle name. I'm a mom, wife, friend, colorful, patient and loving. I like coffee with my cream and sugar, I love candles but hate to burn them, I'm addicted to kids books and think I like them more than my boys, I'm a huge Baylor fan, I love to jam out and sing really loud and I love a challenge. I live in the BBQ capital of Texas, Lockhart, while serving the actual capital of Texas, Austin, and it's surrounding areas. I love photography because it lets me be creative, I get to work with squishy little babies and energetic children and I get the chance to capture and gift memories and moments that families treasure forever. I've never met a stranger and I treat my clients like friends; it's the only way to truly capture the very essence of you. I look forward to meeting you!

This blog is going to be packed full of pictures! It is a little less than the amount of pictures I usually give in a full gallery. So why am I posting them all on a blog? Scroll through and you will see? Which one is your favorite newborn picture of Miss Harlee, because I for sure couldn’t choose!

This little boy is the smiliest newborn I have ever had! And to capture so many sweet grins was such a joy! His mama had woodland creatures in his room so the little fox hat was only fitting and isn’t he the cutest fox you’ve ever seen? And when I found that little lumberjack plaid set, I had to get it to match his mama from her maternity session. Go see what cute parents Finn has! And oh the name, I’m in Love!

So it’s been a while since I had a Mama Monday and I thought what better way to kick it off then with a maternity session of a new mama to be.:)This mama to be is so incredibly sweet and so are they as a couple. You can just see the love he has for her in every single picture. They are such gentle, kind spirits and I can’t wait to meet their little one soon!

    I am so in love with this maternity session. Mommies in Austin are lucky to have a photographer like you!ReplyCancel

I had the absolute joy of taking pictures for this sweet family who just so happen to be good friends of mine. I am so blessed to know them and be chosen to take their first professional family photos of four. I hope that I delivered something they can treasure forever. I loved how unposed most of this session was. It was pretty easy considering how goofy these two boys are together and amazing the love between them. I usually don’t post this many photos but I took SOOOOO many and it was WAY too hard to choose. Keep scrolling to the end, you won’t regret it! Thank you dear friend for trusting in me and choosing me to capture these for you!
