Praise from clients
"Chelle was a dream to work with for my daughter's senior photos. She was so accommodating with our busy schedule, and was flexible with the weather when it wasn't cooperative. The turnaround time, receipt of the photos and her communication exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend her for a unique heart felt photo story experience! Thanks Chelle!"
"Chelle is fantastic! She really took the time to listen and get to know what I was looking for and provided a very personal and professional service. She photographed my wedding, took maternity photos (with two crazy dogs) and was very patient during a fussy newborn shoot. I love the passion and soul she pulls out of situations and captures in her photographs. I will continue to use Chelle for all our photography needs."
