Working with families is what we love to do. It's our passion.
From sharing a snuggle to savoring the moment, slow down and
re-center on what really matters in this chaotic life: family, connection & memories. They grow so fast... ensure you never miss a moment of it.
Meet The Tog
Hey there - I'm Chelsea! A coffee worshiping Hoosier native, who loves to travel and is the proud Momma of one spunky, slightly feral, 6 year old girl. I absolutely love binge watching Bridgeton and oh baby, when it comes to cocktail hour do I recommend a grand marnier margarita, loaded down with olives!
How it all came to be...
Not long ago, in my late 20s I found myself a new mom, working in marketing for a Fortune 500, shooting gigs on the side and TOTALLY burned out. I wasn't the person I wanted to be. I wasn't the mom my kiddo deserved and I my creativity wasn't thriving anymore.
Then after a summer road trip with the hubs and my kiddo, I finally decided I'd had enough. With my 30th birthday looming on the horizon I got my shit together, took a leap of faith and decided for once, to bet on myself. I put in my notice 10 days before my birthday and celebrated 30 - self-employed and happier then ever.
From then to now SO much has changed. I've worked brides brides all over Indiana including Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Evansville and everywhere in between.
I've also met some really incredible families who I've been lucky enough to call friends as we capture the kiddos grow up together, stealing away those most precious moments of life: childhood.
I firmly believe that little in life can compete with the excitement of a newly engaged couple ready to take on the world together - or the incredible (overie-clentching) grasp of a newborn's hand around your fingers.
The older I get, the more I believe it's true that everything in life has it's moment. But that doesn't mean we have to let it's magic slip away as we take our next step forward.
Together we can stow it away. Bottle it forever and capture those hashtag memories that truly make life worth living.

and helpful answers
When do you shoot?
All family sessions are shot within 2 hrs of sunrise or sunset on Wednesdays or Sundays. It's the perfect time of day for those dreamy shots you expect from HTM.
One word: SNACKs (especially for littles.) Besides that you'll need a positive attitude (we play a lot of games) and a little bit of trust for yours truly. Remember, this is supposed to be FUN!
Are digital images included?
Great question! And to put it simply "Yes!" the difference is HOW MANY based on the package you choose.
Where do you shoot?
I have a TON of places that I love to shoot from formal gardens to wild settings and everywhere in between. Most sessions however are shot in Hamilton County.
