As a fAlexaKindWords-1irst time mom, having a baby in the NICU was very difficult. I was missing vital bonding time with my sweet baby and I didn’t know how to handle those emotions. I felt like each time I left a care time, I was missing all the tiny changes that were already taking place in her little life. Fast forward to when she came home or when she had been home a few weeks and now I really feel like everything about her sweet innocent face is changing. Her cheeks are filling out. Her tiny hands aren’t as tiny anymore and have no problem reaching all the way around my finger. Her features don’t seem as ‘baby-like’ as they used to. But thankfully, there are people with a talent that only be described as God-given… there are people like Chelsie Lee. Her talent is huge and her passion for capturing the newness of life is undeniable. I never had to worry about unsafe positions or that my baby was in danger of being injured. There was a small heater that kept her warm and cozy through the entire session. She had plenty of props, headbands, and outfits for me to choose from and piece together to get ‘the look’ I wanted. She even provided this nursing mama with plenty of good snacks! Chelsie was patient through the entire session and allowed me time to feed my baby when she got hungry or comfort her when she would wake up fussy. My husband and I just brought our baby and she took care of the rest! Choosing her to take our daughter’s newborn pictures is not a decision that we regret! We are excited to see what she does at her six month and one year sessions! Chelsie has already blown our minds and captured every perfect detail of our baby girl that we never want to forget! ~ Alexa

Being a mom with two grown daughters, I know the treasure of capturing those tiny baby bundles MariaKindWords-1very early. Days and nights fly by and they bring subtle changes that all too often we have stored only in our memories. Thanks to Chelsie we will forever be able to see our tiny granddaughter just as she came to us – the wisps of hair, the sweet hands and feet, the honey color of her lashes, the precious way she naturally curled up as if posed – and all of this because of the time and attention Chelsie gave to the comfort of the baby and her parents during the entire shoot. I can’t thank you enough for capturing these once-in-a-lifetime moments for us! These pictures will be treasured forever! ~ Maria (Grandmother)

Newborn pictures for my first baby were always something that I knew I would treasure forever! Working with Chelsie when my daughter was less than two weeks old was absolutely amazing and very stress-free. I was expecting to be anxious about it, but she was so calm and knew exactly what would work best for my baby. Chelsie’s calm and nurturing personality is perfect when working with babies and children, and I was so incredibly happy with how our pictures turned out and the experience over all. ~ Lauren

I highly recommend Chelsie Lee Photography. Chelsie is a fabulous photographer. Not only is she kind and very pleasant, but she handled my little one like he was her own. She has such a gentle touch and so loving throughout the entire session making sure he stayed calm and relaxed for the perfect pictures. She captured so many great pics, which made it very difficult to decide on which pics to choose. The turn-around time to view the pics was super fast, which is a huge “plus”! I also love her ideas and style. I am so glad I took a chance and tried her after being referred by a friend. My only regret is I wish I would have discovered her sooner! Looking forward to our next session with her. ~Amanda

Working with Chelsie was great! We had 4 generations on hand for the pics and she was great with handling all of the different family members. I especially liked how easy going she was.. It wasn’t a stuffy “sit up straight” family photo. 🙂 The proofs came back fast and the hardest part was deciding which ones to print. ~ Kara
