In the beginning of November, I decided to finally take action and make my step towards becoming a professional photographer. It has been awesome!! What took me so long, I'll never know (well, actually I do know - it's scary taking the first step, but once you do, it's SO worth it). I reached out to some of the customer's from Highwire (day job) and starting taking their family and engagement photos. I am actually really enjoying the family photo shoots. Having younger siblings has definitely helped me in approaching these photo shoots. I instantly feel comfortable around the kids and love the challenge of capturing their busy bodies.
Here is a small collection of my current portfolio, and if you know anyone who needs professional family, engagement or lifestyle photos, I would love to take them! Send them my way chelseadier [at] gmail dot com or find me on Facebook.
