I love a beautiful picture as much as the next girl but if it doesn’t have the spark of honesty, of someone being themselves, if it feels forced at all, then it just kills it. Being yourself sounds like an easy thing but it really takes a lot of bravery to be that vulnerable.

Chelsea was willing to be so open and trust me, and you can really feel that here. That’s my one of favorite parts of being a photographer, helping people feel so comfortable and cared for that they’ll give me the chance to photograph the real them.
