The Studio, Puslinch Ontario
Studio milestone sessions are the perfect way to capture your little sitter. Most often these sessions capture babies at 5-6 months and 1 year. Sets are kept minimal and clean in order to capture sweet expressions, personalities and details.
Cake smashes can be so much fun but they can also be pretty messy! Why not keep the mess outdoors. Beautiful summer evenings lend themselves perfectly to a sweet little outdoor cake smash followed by a little warm water outdoor tub bath.
This sweet little 6 month old just learned how to sit and we simply had to document it! A little serious and a little silly. This girl had such an amazing session!
Cake and Donut Smash Fun
There is something special about a the bond of two sisters. These two, from the very first day they met were destined to be best friends.
Breslau studio session
The most beautiful hand crafted paper backdrop made with love by this little one's Momma was stunning but nothing compared to this sweet little one year old.

An outdoor cake smash? Why of course! The outdoors makes for amazing cake smashes. This little guy just turned one and to celebrate he dug right into his first cake! We completed the session with a nice warm bath in the field.
My Outdoor studio| Puslinch
A warm day in a beautiful field and my outdoor studio was perfect for this little 6 month old sitter and her mom. Photographing not only this special sitting milestone, we were also about the capture the connection her and her mom share.
My Private Outdoor Studio
Your baby only turns one once. Let us celebrate in the most meaningful way you can think of. This might be portraits, a family session, a donut smash, cake smash or even a pizza smash!
Fun- Authentic- memories
We have all heard the saying, "babies don't keep". I have never heard truer words, but I didn't know this truly until I have my own babies. In a blink of feel an eye your children are taller, smarter, and talking a mile a minute. Let me help you remember all your little one's milestones and create beautiful artwork from them.
Sessions are usually held when baby is 4-12 months. Choose between an outdoor session at the studio property or an indoor session at my studio on a simple backdrop which showcases your sweet baby. All sessions include beautiful portraits of your child. for you to display on your walls. You can also choose to include a smash (cake, donut or even pizza!)

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!
