Welcome to Chelsea Meadows Photography's main site for family, portrait, and newborn photography! Here you can find most everything you need to know on booking your dream session with CMP, visit my galleries, get answers to FAQ, and get to know the women behind the camera!
We at CMP are known for our unique newborn and toddler setups, our large assortment of handmade dresses, props, and accessories, as well as our dreamlike images bursting with color and creativity! I always hated having my photos taken as a child, so to make the process seem less dreadful, love planning ‘play dates’ and creating sets for children so the normally dreaded photo shoot seems like nothing more then a day at the park!
I'm a 27 year old creative portrait photographer specializing in maternity, newborn, couples, family, & event photography from Nashville, TN. I primarily shoot on location but have a small natural light studio. I used to want to be in Vogue & shoot the newest fashion sensations, but now my goal is to be in the homes of families, capturing their most precious moments. My goal in this career is to show everyone that there is beauty everywhere you look and in every person you meet. I strive to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your session and make sure you look as beautiful as you truly are!
Though I started primarily shooting landscapes in High School I quickly gravitated to portrait photography. Photography became a great social outlet for me during high school & helped me venture outside of my safety bubble & meet tons of wonderful people. Over the last couple of years, as I've grown in experience & age, my work broadened to fit the established clientele I had grown with as they hit the milestones in life such as having children & tying the knot. I fell in love with the unpredictable & have been shooting weddings & little ones for almost four years now. I now spend photo sessions trying to chase after toddlers, making bad jokes with adults to get them to truly laugh, talking over coffee or root beer floats with my wedding clients, & singing Baby Shark with the younglings.

I love telling people that I'm on the Paleo diet, which I am when I remember I am. I like to pretend I’m a bit of a health nut & I primarily live off of Coffee, Kale Chips, & Cauliflower so my house is always super stinky from overcooked vegetables! I have a deep love for Disney movies, as do all people, & I always try to pull some type of inspiration from them, whether it be the vibrance of color in my images, the fairy tale esc locations, or the giddy feeling you get when you look back at your images. I'm also a huge horror movie fan & sometimes I get those things mixed up. I spend most of my time working, but in my little down time I love to bake all types of sweets that I shouldn't be eating so I dispense to others (If I can't get skinny I might as well make everyone around me fat!) & driving to the middle of no where to find the perfect locations! I'm constantly working with my hands & I'm always exploring thrift stores trying to find things to spruce up my life & add to my collection of props! I have four babies & I don't know how it got this bad. One over weight Siamese cat named Isaac, teenager Oliver has now turned into a well rounded young adult, a wise cracking street cat named Hank who was dumped at Nashville West with some serious injuries, & our newest addition is a fluff monster Apollo who was also dumped behind some restaurants in Bellevue.
