is a team effort creating art that tells your story of aloha through the artistic lens of Chelsea Garcia, Fine Art Photographer.
It doesn't look like she's having much fun while on the beach in Hawai'i, with 'wind-swept hair.' However, SHE'S ECSTATIC and looking forward to greeting the ohana that will be meeting her on the beach for their day of le'ale'a. But she's also SUPER FOCUSED on getting the light measured right for the upcoming sunset photo session. You see, she has spent a long time dreaming of this opportunity to understand their story and capture it creatively for them! It's a labor of love AND lots of le'ale'a. Chelseacraft Photography could not be here without immeasurable support from family, friends and most importantly, clients that become ohana, like you.
Chelsea has dabbled in many formal, self-study and fine art educational classes and workshops:
All evidence that she will always like i loko o to continue crafting the highest quality images.

Along with the the not-so-fine arts of
all of which helped inform her eclectic-yet-classical photographic aesthetic and perspective, a kaila she will infuse into the art she creates for you.
Chelsea has lived in the deserts of Southern California, Arizona and Northern Mexico; the evergreen forests of Washington; and a brief 6-week stint in urban Ireland. She has had quite a few inspiring/exasperating adventures along the way, on her own & with her husband(partner-in-crime of 26 years) and their 6'3" son(reason-for-all-her-grey-hairs). They have culminated into transporting her life across 2500 miles of open ocean to Hawai'i nei. Here, you'll often see her with obvious swimsuit strings under her tops as she is perpetually on her way to or from the beach. She continues learning about and exploring the nature, culture, history and minute details of daily aloha life of her island home on O'ahu and hopes to get in a lot more holoholo soon.
