Hi, I’m Chelsey! I am an Oldham County native, only living in a few spots around Louisville. I’ve been all over the place education wise and even career wise. I feel as though I have finally caved into my calling. I have travelled from UofL to IUS to currently, WKU. I have three degrees, none of which I use. I currently work behind a desk in an office, which I love, but said job does not satisfy my creative side. I like to feel that I am a 8-5 by day, creator by night. I have learned that my brain cannot stay in one place, therefore I cannot be satisfied with one task (job). I must keep myself as insane as possible. So far, it seems to be working.
I am a solo act, calling on my fellow photographer friends (Ashley Menard with Faux Finish) when I am not capable of the job alone. I feel my purpose as a photographer is to capture as many memories as possible. I want to be able to have my clients look back on sessions and see the connections, feel the laughter, and embrace the emotions. I take pride in not being your typical catalog photographer, and will rarely pose you and your family just to stand there and smile. I want all the giggles, all the tickles, and all the chemistry a family experiences when a camera is not pointing at them.
My job is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. I want to interact with you and your family, I want your children to be comfortable with me and know that I take my job very seriously. I treat each session as if it were my own, and have only the highest expectations. If you are not completely satisfied with your session, I will reshoot for a selected amount of time to ensure you receive photos that capture you and your family in the way you imagine.
I invite you all to introduce yourselves, to schedule meetings or Skype sessions before our shoots. There is never too much to be learned about someone before capturing forever moments.
I invite you to take a look around and get comfy; welcome to Chelsey Gibson Photography.
