Meet Chelsey Shaw

Seattle maternity photographer

You’ve made it this far so you are curious to who it is behind the lens. I am a mother of three very active boys. Getting out in the beautiful Pacific Northwest is a big part of our lives exploring all the beauty that nature has to offer. When I am not running after them I get to work on my biggest passion, which is photography.

I have always been inspired by art my entire life. Drawing in my youth was my creative outlet. With that artistic medium I learned about composition, colors and how to use the world around me to inspire my creativity. I also spent 2 years as a fashion design major in college. This is where I draw a lot of my inspiration in my maternity and senior photography portraits. I want each client to have to express their own bold sense of style and personality to make their session unique to them. Photography is another outlet that has become a major aspect of my life. It is how I can turn real life moments into gorgeous works of art.

Some fun facts about me:

  • I was born on the fourth of July so of course I got an interesting middle name- Liberty
  • I’m double jointed and so far at least one of my children is too
  • We didn’t name our middle child until 3 days after he was born
  • I’m a graduate student working on my Master’s in Social Work

I hope you enjoy my work. It has been an amazing adventure that is constantly challenging me to learn new skills and techniques.


Thank you,

Chelsey Shaw
