Rose Gardens- The Guelph Arboretum
the R Family
Sometimes a maternity session and a family session go hand in hand. This fun little family of 5 is soon to be a family of 6 and we needed to make sure to document their joy and excitement. We also wanted to capture the way life is right now before adding another baby into the mix. Your family is part of your pregnancy journey just as much as your unborn baby is. Let us celebrate that connection with a beautiful lifestyle centered playful session!

Congratulations on your pregnancy!! Whether it's your first or your third, it's so important to freeze this moment in time. Let's create images that can line your halls or warm your coffee table while showcasing this amazing experience so you can show your child one day while saying the words, "Yes honey, that was you." You are a gorgeous mom-to-be and you deserve your time to shine!
As a Toronto area maternity photographer, I strive to provide you a fun and stress-free maternity experience that focuses on the importance of being able to look back at your maternity journey with the future generations you are creating.
Let me help you hold on those moments so that you can look back on them every day as you walk down the hall and see their faces looking back at you from a beautiful canva
Let's chat! Send me a little note through my contact form and let me know all about you and your family. I want to know all the details and cool things about your pregnancy journey.
I will respond as quickly as possible (usually within 24 hours) to discuss all the details, make sure we are a great fit for each other. I will get your date secured on my calendar. and we can chat about your vision and details.
I can't wait to hear from you!
1. Say Hello
2. Maternity Session
Let's plan your session. A few weeks before your session I will send you a little style guide so that you can make some choices as to what to wear. I also have access to a small client closet which contains some beautiful dresses for mom and some sweet little clothing items for your children.
At this time we will also discuss the location of your session. I have a few locations I love to use but If there is a special place you would like to go we can to including my own outdoor studio on our property (depending on the lighting available). I always think it makes a session more meaningful if we can use a location with personal significance.
3. ask me Anything
Really truly, ask me anything. I am here to make your dream session a reality! I am here to help! From what to wear, what do we do it my toddler doesn't cooperate to the type of shoes you should wear. Please feel free to email me any time.
4. Let's shoot
We will get together at our chosen location and have so much fun! I will warn you that I can talk a lot and I can get a little carried away. I will probably tell you a million times " just one more shot" but its just so hard to stop when you're having fun.
We will laugh and chat. You will snuggle, giggle, dream and play. I will really try to get to know the real you and have this shine in your images.

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!
