I’m Chelsea, a fine art boudoir photographer based out of Nashville, Tennessee. My expertise in making women feel beautiful began over a decade ago when I became a licensed cosmetologist. After years of special occasion hair and makeup, I realized self love was lacking. This led me on an artistic endeavor of blending natural beauty with photography.
My job goes far beyond just taking bespoke photographs. I hand paint backdrops to create an ethereal aesthetic, cultivate wardrobe recommendations for sustainable lingerie, plus educate on hair and makeup tips that will help you not just feel beautiful for one day but each day going forward.
READY TO BOOK A LOVE YOURSELF SESSION?
Do you both photograph boudoir?
While we love working together, Chelsea is the only one who photographs and edits boudoir sessions. Your privacy is her main priority and Chelsea takes that very seriously. If you prefer for Chelsea to not highlight images of your boudoir session on social media, let her know upfront before signing the model release.
What’s the Best Time of Year to book?
The great thing about boudoir is that it can be taken any time of year. Chelsea limits boudoir sessions to only two per month ensuring you get your images back in a timely manner. If you are looking for a mini session then these are hosted once a year before Valentin'es Day. Make sure to sign up for our newsletter to recieve more information on these sessions.
Are there steps to help me prepare?
Yes of course! Between the private instagram community of monthly content and educational blogs, you also recieve my list of recommended vendors and places to shop for sustainable lingerie. You phone consultation will include these details and answer all of your questions.
Can I add boudoir into my wedding?
Each wedding is unique and Chelsea always encourage brides to make time for at least a 30 minute boudoir session within their timeline. You will already have your lingerie and hair / makeup finished so why not docuement some beautiful boudoir before slipping into your gown? This also can be used as a belated wedding gift for your partner as well!
Is there weird posing involved?
Not at all! Chelsea takes pride in taking beautiful images of you without weird posing. You will be surprised at just how amazing your gallery will be when you embrace your natural beauty and Chelsea finds most women become more empowered when they realize they didn't have to do a ton to look beautiful in the first place.
What Is A Love Yourself Session?
Unlike most boudoir photographers, Chelsea has custom proposals made for each of you. After your phone consultation, Chelsea will send up to 3 custom proposals that include everything you talked about. Ensuring you get the most out of your boudoir experience. That is why each Love Yourself Session is unique because they cater to your exact needs.
Where do the sessions take place?
Most prefer their boudoir sessions taken in the comfort of their own home. However, if you are wanting a certain aesthetic there are Airbnb's and beautiful boutique hotels to choose from as well. You will have to secure the location beforehand and these are not included in the collection pricing.
Can You Make Me Look Skinny?
While Chelsea uses Lightroom to edit and fine tune your images, she does not use Photoshop to alter the way you look. She removes things such as blemishes and scars but to take away from who you are is not the reason she photographs boudoir. Chelsea finds that her clients appreciate the way their images look even more when they realize their bodies haven't been altered to look a certain way.
