THE STORY OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi, I’m Chelsey! I am an Oldham County native other than living in Louisville during my undergrad. 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 two degrees: my B.S. in Psychology, a Graduate Certificate in Liberal Studies, and currently working on my Master's in Organizational Leadership. I currently work at South Oldham Middle School as an EBD aide, and absolutely adore my job and kids. I like to feel that I am a teacher by day, creator by night. I have learned that my brain cannot stay in one place, therefore I cannot be satisfied with one task. I must keep myself as insane as possible. So far, it seems to be working.
I am a solo act, calling on my fellow mate (Ashley Anne with Beauty Studios by 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 to just 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 philosophy is simply love is love. Seeing the good in humanity is a blessing. Discrimination on any platform is not tolerated in my space. I encourage all of my clients to be their full selves. My job is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. I want your voice to be heard, I want to interact with you and your family, I want your children to be comfortable with me and I want you to know that I take capturing your moments to heart. 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 do anything in my power 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 isn’t enough to be learned about someone before capturing forever moments.
Welcome to your safe space, welcome to Chelsey Gibson Photography.
