About the Guest
From the time I could hold a crayon, I wanted to be an artist. I dabbled with art in many forms growing up from drawing, painting and sewing to pottery, weaving and scrapbooking. As an adult, family always came first; there was never much time to seriously devote to any art form. Then, at age 55, after all three children were grown and out of the nest, I stumbled upon photography. After studying under Darton Drake (RIP) at Texas School in 2004, I was so inspired that I came home and quit my day job to turn a hobby into a profession. I now specialize in newborns and children with a few high school seniors sprinkled in. I also photograph senior citizens for free and gift them an 8×10 print.
The creative process has always made me happy and the challenge of making something out of nothing gives me great satisfaction. This includes things such as crafting a bird nest out of twigs for a newborn prop, making newborn, basket stuffers and cocoons out of yarn and upcycling newborn pants and hats from sweaters purchased from Goodwill, to name a few. I love this creative process, but more importantly, it helps set my work apart.
I have been a member of the Professional Photographers’ Guild of Houston (PPGH) for a number of years and have learned so much from listening to the speakers and from image competition, my favorite part of the program. I am also a member of TPPA (Texas Professional Photographers Association) and PPA (Professional Photographers of America.) Attending the Texas School of Photography has become an annual event and I have attending Imaging USA five times.

CHELSEA WILLIAMS – I knew I wanted to be a photographer since I was thirteen years old. When I was fourteen I started taking night classes at a community college just to learn. I kept at it and got a BS in Photography from Sam Houston State University in 2007. I have been in business ever since.
I now have two wonderful children of my own and I truly love photographing small children and families. I currently do photo shoots with newborns, families, seniors, maternity, engagement and bridal sessions.
Also, for those who know you only get one shot at a first impression I offer quality head shots and business portraits. I offer photo shoots either outdoors with natural light or I can bring studio equipment to a home or office for indoor shoots. I live in Conroe, TX but work all over Huntsville, Montgomery, Magnolia, The Woodlands and Spring, TX.

Dick became a photographer in High School, purchasing his first Digital DLSR, Canon 10D. Since then, he has been an avid fan of taking photos of anything. His main interest in photography is developing a better understanding of cinematography in film. The technical side of taking photos and shooting film has been and will always be the core of his love for photography and film.
