  • 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!

These twin boys turned 6 months and I had the opportunity to capture such a fun milestone. They are sitting up, smiley and oh so chubby! The pictures at the end will make you want to just squeeze those “little” thighs! I am so excited their mommy signed up for a baby bundle and that I will have the joy of seeing these two again at 9 months and then a year! Meet Casen and Cooper…

I had such an amazing opportunity on August 8, 2014. A very close friend of mine called me at 7:30 to tell me it was time! I quickly changed, grabbed my camera and loaded up to capture one of the most wonderful experiences I’ve ever had the opportunity to be a part of.  There are no words to describe a life being born and although I’ve personally been through it three times, there is something so magical about watching and capturing the process. Thank you friend for allowing me to be a part of such an important time in your life! Enjoy this video:) (Turn on your sound)

ATTENTION:  I am not endorsed or affiliated with LaneyBug Creations in ANY way, other than I love her product and have used it for my own babies to sleep and newborn photography alike.  I love to share product that work great and could possibly help other mommies out!  We have to stick together:)

This post today is for mommies and newborn photographers alike!  This product is absolutely amazing at getting babies to sleep and to stay asleep.  It’s called the Snuggle Spot!

Say goodbye to swaddles that don’t stay!  This pillow has a shallow space that you place the baby in and once swaddled, the weight of the baby pulls the sides gently around them to snuggle them in, like being in someone’s arms and the swaddle will stay put.  Their head goes at the top of the pillow to elevate them and helps to alleviate acid reflux, runny noses, etc.  The pillow fits in any standard crib, portable crib and even mini-cosleepers.  We used the snuggle spot with our son Ethan in his mini co-sleeper and when we traveled we would just bring the pillow.  Pack and plays are bulky and heavy and you already feel like you bring everything but the kitchen sink when traveling:) The snuggle spot is light, portable and so convenient!  It really is a great all around product!  She has a ton of fabric choices and you can even embroider your babies name on it.  They also make FABULOUS baby shower gifts.   Anyone wanting to co-sleep with their baby doesn’t have to worry about rolling over on them as the pillow acts as a protective barrier while keeping baby close by!  I used this pillow for our son Ethan and it was the ONLY thing that would keep him asleep.  Once Ethan was out of the snuggle spot, I used it for my newborn shoots.  It’s a great cuddler to keep baby asleep while I am switching blankets or props. I don’t even have to swaddle before hand.  I first place a blanket on the snuggle spot (makes for easier clean up), put baby inside and cover with another blanket.  Then when I am ready to go again, I don’t have to remove any swaddles and worry about waking the baby.  I highly recommend this product and hope you will check her out over at LaneyBug Creations.  You can also like her on Facebook and make sure to give her some love from ChelseaLee Photography!  I would love to hear how the snuggle spot works for you and your little one.  Enjoy your day!

If you missed the secret to saying bye bye to your baby belly then you really should check out the product on that post too!  Another great one!  If you have a favorite product for new mommies I would love to write a post and share about it!  Either comment at the bottom or contact me at the top!

 

I’ve been a little behind on blogging and trying to be much better about it.  So playing catch up, meet Baby Brooklyn who came to see me in January.  I’m playing catch up with Brooklyn first because her mommy has some amazing information I will be sharing later about how to get rid of your baby belly, just 6 weeks postpartum!  Seriously you won’t want to miss it!  In the mean time meet this chubby little cutie!

It is seriously a shame that I don’t blog these sessions more.  It’s selfish of me to house all these adorable babies hostage on my computer:) I mean look at those rolls and all that hair!  I am a SUCKER for babies with hair, probably because all my babies are as bald as cue balls!  I hope you enjoying looking at this precious girl and check back later this afternoon for her mommy’s secret on getting rid of your baby belly!

 

 

 

As a newborn photographer, I see and hear many moms complain about that belly they had hoped would disappear as soon as their new baby was born.

Being a mommy of 2, almost 3 (coming April), I understand that frustration and the fact that with a newborn and other children it’s hard to get back to that body you always had/wanted. I know what it’s like to want results and want them now! To see yourself in photos and cringe, or not get in them at all. Don’t miss out on the memories and have your children question, “where was mommy?” I have a solution for you! I have a way to get you on the right track and give you that “magical” solution you’ve been looking for. It’s this crazy wrap thing called, It Works, and guess what…it REALLY does! Miss Brooklyn‘s mommy, Jessica, came to see me for newborn pictures back in January and she recently posted her results from using a set of these wraps and I was hooked! Here is her testimonial and results…

20140302-221543.jpg“I used one full treatment (4 wraps) on my stomach and lost a total of 4.75 inches over a period of 12 days! I have not worked out since before I got pregnant and have not changed my diet at all! My stretch marks are much smoother and less noticeable, and I’m finally fitting back into my pre-pregnancy jeans!!!”

It Works wraps provides a natural way to lose inches fast and keep them off. This is as close to magic as it gets and I’m ready to get people photo fit and ready! If your ready to boost your confidence and get your body back after baby, no matter how many years it’s been,:)then comment at the bottom or contact me at the top for information, or go to Photo Fit and grab you a set of these amazing wraps (the ultimate body applicator)!
