The Experience


"Gorgeous photography! Beautifully done, captures the essence of horses and emotions. Incredible editing. Chelsea not only does beautiful work but is a fun person to work with. You can’t get any better than Captivation Photography!" -Lauren

"Easy to work with, helps you with your vision for your photos, and great communication. It was a fun experience which is what I was looking for along with capturing great shots." -Teresa


"Chelsea photographed my 5 year old OTTB, and my two wild kids. The photos are absolutely dreamy and beyond expectations. I highly recommend her!" -Danielle


"She did this beautiful photo shoot of me and this horse that we sadly had to put down due to a severe injury he came to us with. She made a wreath to go around his neck for his own photo shoot, caught the bittersweet moments of our love for him and his last day with us getting spoiled rotten. Chelsea is just incredible and gets you everything you could ever want in these beautiful photos." -Lauren

What To Expect

When you fill out the contact form, let me know what you're looking for and don't be afraid to include details about your furry friends! I will get back with you within 24 hours to talk bout exactly what your vision is and what you are looking for! 

I will call, email, or zoom (your choice!) with you to pinpoint the things that are most important to you in a session and we will figure out what what is perfect for you. Do you have visions of huge, flowing gowns, trailing behind you while golden light fills the sky? Let's do it! Are you looking for pictures of your daughter with her first pony to document the start of her equestrian journey? I can't wait! Who doesn't love kids and ponies? No matter what your dream session is, we can create your vision. We can select the dates and times that work best for your dream session!

When you decide it sounds like the perfect fit, you will get a couple of emails. I will send you the product guide so that you can start envisioning what products are perfect for your home, lifestyle, and gifts. This guide has my signature pieces with all of the pricing, but if you have something special in mind that you don't see, I am always happy to source and create the perfect piece for you! You will also receive a link to your contract to fill out. This contract will also have a section to fill in for the products you are most interested in (don't worry, this is just a starting point, you aren't locked into buying what you select here!) as well as the fun details for your horses and pets!

Before your session you will receive a prep guide based on your session type. This will include tips on how to prepare, what to get ready, and all sorts of good info to help you! Before your session I am always available to answer questions, provide outfit input (or even rent you something out of this world!) and to help with anything!

Session Day is here! All of the prep work is done and we get to play in front of the camera to make your dreams come true! Don't stress about everything being perfect or your furry friend not behaving perfectly, I promise your images will be everything you wish for! I can get the shot even if you have a nervous pup or high strung stallion! After we wrap up the session, you get the hands on time with my product samples. You will be able to touch and handle the signature pieces so you are able to envision your images as artwork. We will set a date and time for your Reveal and Ordering Session which takes place via Zoom.

Reveal and Ordering Sessions are so exciting! You finally get to see your fully edited images in all of their glory! On our zoom reveal I will set a screen share so that you can view a slideshow of your gallery. Next we will go over exactly what you want to order and get everything in production at my professional labs. 

Order Delivery is our final step! I hand deliver the majority of the artwork orders (shipping is available for my super long distance clients) so that I can ensure your art is perfect. I will notify you as soon as your full order is in my hands and ready for you so that we can set up delivery!
