Your baby is growing up and you deserve

to have the memories saved forever!

Hey there I’m Chelsea!

I photograph the magical, loving moments of Your newborn baby and beyond by capturing bright, bold and beautiful images that touch the heart, then turn them into tangible Art to last a lifetime.

How many years I’ve been shooting

I worked in a photography studio all through high school (graduated in ’04) where I first learned to edit. I got my first camera in 2010 and started my business officially in 2011 after having my own newborn baby. I’ve been learning, and growing and loving newborn photography ever since! BUT, I not only capture your newborn baby, I also capture all the moments before and after…as your newborn grows in your belly, when they celebrate their first birthday with a cake smash, family photography each year as your family grows and when that newborn baby is graduating high school as a senior!

A Bit of Wonder was created to encompass the wonder of who this little person will be during your maternity moments. The marvel and wonder of the newborn phase and capturing the little bitty parts that change so quickly. The imagination and fun of their first birthday cake smash. The ages and personalities that change every year for your growing family photos, all the way until that baby graduates High School for senior pictures. Let me capture the wonder at every stage; a photographer you can grow with!

I’m Your DFW Newborn Photographer

This full service experience is for the loving and busy mamas, the memory makers and keep-sakers, and the eternal moments of the heart. While my main focus is capturing moments you can never get back, I believe that those memories need to be captured forever in print. That is the true heart behind my business. Artful and emotional moments for you to love and relive each day.

This girl is all about ease, comfort, unconditional love, loud laughs, stunning heirlooms, and finding beauty in the creation, chaos and fun.

If you crave photos that capture fleeting moments, want pictures beautiful, bold and unfading, and if you’d like to make a new friend in the process, we will be a great fit. I can’t wait to meet you!


You might be feeling like…

You want beautiful images of your newborn baby and family but there are so many choices for a newborn photographer it feels overwhelming and stressful.  The time is flying by and you know you need to invest in these moments that matter but you don’t know where to begin. You want an effortless photography experience that eases your worries and lets you be in the moments of motherhood instead of stressing about them.

You want a photographer that provides everything you need to help make your vision come to life with ease. You want to savor these moments of your new little one and not miss out on capturing their tiny little frame and parts before they grow too fast. You crave images that are bright and bold and to have real and beautiful pictures that capture the true essence of motherhood, your newborn baby and your new family unit that is forever changed.

You’re quickly realizing that social media is not an album and scrolling through the thousands of pictures on your phone to find the ones you love is time consuming. You want to remember these moments beautifully and tangibly. To walk into your home, walls adorned with timeless moments that take you back to those exact stages and ages.

To snuggle up with your husband and kiddos, or grand-babies someday and build moments of love, belonging, and connection as you retell your family story again and again through your printed art.

Does any of this SOUND LIKE YOU?

01. You’re a mom who wants to capture the moments of the little person you’ve created and your new family unit together.

02. Bright, bold, and beautiful photo editing is your thing.

03. You’re worried about how to pose, what to wear or how your other children will act once in front of the camera.

04. You don’t know what to do or have the time to do anything with the beautiful images you’ve paid for.

05. A custom photography experience that truly represents you and takes away your stress and anxiety is important.

Chelsea was incredible to work with for our newborn pics. Her gentleness & patience was commendable especially working with our stubborn baby boy. She is creative & captured the sweetest moments that we will cherish forever. It was a laidback & stress free photo session & that makes it so easy on this Mama. She has tons of props, blankets and the most glamorous dresses that you have ever seen. I can’t recommend her enough! We will be going back for family pics very soon & you should too! Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us!

Chelsea was wonderful! I had my son’s first birthday shoot with her and it was Transportation themed (cars, trucks, planes, trains, etc). She went above and beyond on his custom back drop! I love it so much! She even added his name to a street sign for an additional personal touch. She made sure he was comfortable and we had all the time we needed. Her cake lady was amazing and the cake went right with the theme. The cake smash photos were so fun and cute. Definitely will use her again.

From Bump To Baby



Inquire here and share “all the things!” I want to hear YOUR story!  You’ll automatically get an email full of information on the session you’re interested in. From there I will get back to you within the next 24 hours so we can schedule a time to connect over the phone for a pre-consultation. 

During the pre-consultation, this is a great time to get to know each other and answer your questions. This is where we’ll talk about the custom experience for you in detail! Together we’ll discuss your newborn photography hopes, dreams, and vision, plan out the colors and theme of your session, go over the products, talk about the investment and more!  

If all sounds good to you and you love what I offer and we are a good fit let’s get your spot reserved!


For maternity sessions we will doll you up, hair and makeup included, along with the use of our client closet and couture gowns; we will find your inner goddess and make you GLAM (Glowing Like A Mother). During your newborn session, just kick back and relax – I’ll take it from here! We will also capture that long awaited new family photo with your new little love. For cake smashes, family photography and senior photos we have ALL the fun with fully styled, unique to you photos!

After your session we will plan a viewing and ordering appointment, in person or virtually through zoom.


Together in person or through zoom, I will walk you through a slideshow and then every image one by one to help take the stress and overwhelm away by guiding you and showing you images and poses of your newborn baby to make sure you get the best variety of poses and scenes to choose the ones that tug on your heartstrings. 

After finding the BEST of the best, we decide on a package to encompass all the images you want, with the ART you desire for your home. 

I then edit your chosen images and order ALL your amazing products. I understand that it is so hard to wait for those amazing heirlooms, but I promise it will be worth the wait!


Hang up your canvas or prints, set out your album or boxed photos, decorate your office with your triplex, send out your birth announcements and share your digitals on social media for all your friends and family to see. It’s time to enjoy your newborn baby as art for the rest of your life!
