My name is Chelsie, and I am the owner and photographer here at Nellie Bea Photography. I live in Grand Rapids, MN along with my husband Lee and our two children, Bristol (8) and Drake (5). 

I started on this journey back in 2014 after some convincing from friends and family that my little hobby of taking pictures of my children should be turned into a business, specializing in Maternity, Newborn, and Family portraiture. When I am not photographing your baby bump or family out in the woods and fields around the area, you can find me shooting a newborn session out of my in-home studio.

As we look into the future, 2018 is going to be full of a lot of fun new adventures for us here at NBP. We will be adding limited addition fairytale sessions for the little ones, taking on more weddings this year than ever before, and the prospect of branching out of the home and into a full service studio of my very own!

SO EXCITED for the journey that 2018 has in store for us, and I hope you can join us along the way.

       I shoot what it feels like"
