In this series, we highlight amazing women in the SRG community. Meet Chelsea...
You fell in love with photography because it's just another way for you to connect with people, and that's what you've always wanted to do. You capture personal stories and document emotions with your images, authentically beautiful. Just like you.
You are not afraid to challenge yourself, and expose vulnerability and creatively going a step beyond the expected... You are a creative dreamer and a determined doer.
We admire that and we are inspired by your passion and drive.
It was great to meet for coffee and catch up will you were here in NYC! We covered some heavy topics like the creative process and the art of being alone, but we left so much uncovered about you!
