I am so glad you are here! I am a maternity, newborn and family photographer with over 10 years of experience. I love being able to photograph your important life experiences and milestones.
I'm a professional photographer, serving Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo Region, and surrounding areas. I have had the honour of capturing memories for families for over 10 years and watching these families grow and change throughout the years. Some families have even lovingly claimed me as “their photographer” and I wear that title proudly.
I’m a wife to my wonderful partner and a mom of three little ones. Sometimes it still surprises me just how fast kids grow and life changes, but it always reminds me how important it is to capture these moments. Regardless of how messy and chaotic life can be with little ones, the days are short-lived and pass by too quickly. I want to make sure these moments last a life time and line your hallways for generations to come. Your moments will become captured memories that you can re-live each and every day.
hi, i'm chelsey
Always a fun day when we get to do a photo shoot with Chelsey! We have had the pleasure of having Chelsey photograph many of our big life events; our engagement, wedding, the newborn days of both our babies, and our family as our girls grow. Her approach is relaxed and she gives great direction that is playful and natural rather than posed. I love the way the photos reflect the little things my kids were doing in those moments, capturing them in the pure joy of childhood.
I came across Chelsey's website when I was pregnant with my first baby nearly a decade ago and booked her for a newborn session because I liked the look of her photos! 3 babies later, many photo shoots and lots of laughs I can honestly say I wouldn't trust anyone else to capture my family in photos! Chelsey is honestly the best and I without a doubt love every picture she takes of my family! She is amazing and my kids love her too!
Chelsey has taken photos of us for over 8 years beginning when I was pregnant with my first child. We have 2 walls devoted entirely to photos that Chelsey has taken of our family and we receive so many positive comments on them. Chelsey has a knack for getting reluctant little ones to smile and with posing newborns! Very happy with all of our photos!
My husband and I went with Chelsey for our maternity and newborn photo shoots and we had an EXCELLENT experience with her!
Her fun, flexible, relaxed attitude makes her easy to get along with and provides a comfortable environment for photo taking. She has a great eye for candid photo opportunities and more staged shots that will blow you away (see two examples attached). She turned the photo taking experience into a joint effort - gauging what's important to us and what our personal taste would be while also offering great suggestions along the way. As parents of a newborn, we weren't sure if we wanted to have anyone in our - let's be honest, messy and chaotic - home. When Chelsey came for our lifestyle newborn shoot, she was amazing at working around the messes to capture some wonderful shots that felt like us. She was also great at handling our little guy - helping him look his best and making him feel comfortable. Looking forward to working with Chelsey again in the future! :)
Chelsey was fantastic to work with. She photographed my mother’s 60th birthday celebration as well as my son’s 6 month photos. She engaged so well with both the children and adults and made the whole experience so easy. Chelsea was so natural and easy to talk to, and was able to capture everyone’s personality in her photos. The only difficult thing was choosing which photos to purchase because they were all so beautiful ❤️ I would definitely recommend Chelsey Kae Photography. #guelphbabyphotography #torontobabyphotography

Chelsey has been nothing but professional for the several photo shoots we’ve done with our family. She always makes it fun, and never forced or awkward. I’ve often recommended her work to friends, and would do it again!

Chelsey started taking photos for our family just before our first child was born. Since then, we keep coming back for more and more amazing photos. Chelsey is professional, flexible, and a pleasure to work with. She is patient with young children and making sure you love your photos is her top priority. She is extremely talented and dedicated. I have received countless compliments on photos Chelsey has done for us, and I am constantly asked for the name of my photographer. I can not recommend chelseykaephotography strongly enough! You won’t regret it!
Chelsey’s photography lines the halls of our home. Over the past seven years (and four children!) she has captured beautiful images of our family by keeping the atmosphere relaxed and comfortable. Chelsey is wonderful with children of all ages and we have been very fortunate to work with her.
Chelsey did an absolutely fantastic job on capturing mine and baby’s first mama outing together. We used nature as the backdrop and she took the time to make us feel comfortable; giving tips/ideas for endearing positions and placements, which helped to snap the perfect shot! Thanks Chelsey, we will be seeing you again :)
Chelsey has taken photos of us for years and the outcome is always great. The images are beautiful and Chelsey is wonderful to interact with. She makes you feel comfortable.
Chelsey did an amazing job on our maternity, birth and Christmas mini shoot. We couldn't have been happier with the quality of the photos and her professionalism. She made us comfortable behind the camera and was extremely patient with my daughter while trying to capture her at her best! I highly recommend her services.
So happy with the location of the photos, very professional attitude but fun to work with! Overall, great, creative photographer and a great experience!
