Moments pass at the blink of an eye and memories fade as time goes on. I exist here to capture what might otherwise be lost to our future selves.  

I specialize in Wedding, Engagement, & Family Photography. I love capturing the details, the cliche in between moments that others, even you, may not realize are special until you see them through my eyes.

Through our session together we will connect, I will make you laugh, I will encourage your connection to grow, & we will provide you with priceless memories that will remain timeless when all else fades.

"If you are looking for a photographer in Northwest Arkansas, look no farther! Chelsey was an absolute dream to work with and her photos are gorgeous! She is well connected with other vendors in the area and was able to suggest a florist and make up artist. We are not from the area, so having her expert advice was such a blessing. The vendors she recommended were amazing! Chelsey was easily available by text/phone and and went above and beyond the day of the wedding to help us solve a crisis. She showed up early to the venue and was ready for us when we got there. She made the picture taking process a breeze and was quick to turn around photos. I cannot say enough good things about her and her photos speak volumes.  We have had so many comments on how amazing our wedding photographs are. The wedding was an elopement with no guests, so it was really important for us to have a quality photogrpaher who could capture that special day. I'm forever graeful to Chelsey for all of her hard work and her beautiful photos."


"Chelsey was amazing. The moments she captures were priceless and she made every vision in my head come to life. I can't thank her enough - the photos turned out better than I ever dreamed"

"Awakening Photography did a phenomenal job and I'm enamored with our engagement and wedding photos! Chelsey and Steven were SO fun to work with, have an amazing eye for making usual portraits into timeless, artful memories, and their passion for what they do clearly comes through in the magic of their photos. They came with lots of ideas for poses and worked really well with us on specific shots we wanted. The quality and detail in our photos are wonderful and our house is already filled with these irreplaceable memories; I can't recommend Awakening Photography highly enough!"
