About Me

detroit mi photographer Chelsie Maurer

Hey, I’m Chelsie.

Thirty-something year old wife and mama to two sweet girls. My family and I live in Sterling Heights, MI although I was born and raised in the cereal city, Battle Creek, MI (yes, when the wind blows you really can smell the cereal being made!). I’ll share a few facts about me…

-I’d describe myself as an extroverted introvert. Is that a thing?

-I can’t turn down a caramel latte. Or a Nicholas Sparks book.

-I love Jesus and I hope my life reflects that kindness and love to others.

-I absolutely love to photograph my clients. Truly.

-My bachelors degree is in marketing and economics, and my masters degree is in business management. My photography business lets me use my creative side and business side.

-I never went to Disney as a child, but have gone several times as an adult.

-I’m a minimalist. I would rather have experiences than things.


The Studio

Located in historic Utica, michigan

My studio space is a natural light boutique studio for newborn, children’s milestone, and small family lifestyle sessions. I have quite the collection of newborn wraps, headbands, bonnets, props, and milestone outfits to be used during sessions.

During your session at the studio, help yourself to refreshments and enjoy your visit.
