A story-driven photographer for creatives

thank you for being here!

i'm a shameless multi-hyphenate with a master's of science in communication who has a wide range of experience from being voted "best philadelphia lifestyle photographer" by peerspace to completing more than 100+ branding and headshot sessions. i'm also an emboldened traveler, a jeans wearer, an architect's wife, infj, virgo, and #4 on the enneagram (if you're into those kinda things). i'd love to learn about you, too, so pull up a chair...




since 2014, i've been creating branding and lifestyle images for creatives and entrepreneurs who have a strong artistic aesthetic. if you love the creative process of telling a brand story and enjoy having a synergy with other creatives,  well, we should definitely work together.  i'm here to help make your life easier with outstanding visual branding, strategic sessions for your business, and photos that represent who you are and your unique story.

"Celia was an absolute joy to work with! I needed branding photos taken for my new online business and after one look at her work, I new I had to work with her. She made the process so seamless, especially since it was my first time getting photos taken, and I didn't have to think about a thing. She coached me on posing and even gave me a few tips on taking my own photos. The photos turned out amazing and I can't wait to use them on my website and social media! HIGHLY recommend won't be disappointed!"

"If you're in Philly and looking for a photographer, LOOK NO FURTHER! Celia is absolutely wonderful to work with. Celia obviously has an innate talent and eye for photography. But what's even more amazing is her ability to put you at ease during the shoot. I'm not exactly the most photogenic person in the world, but Celia made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Celia also gave me lots of great tips... I've worked with other photographers before, and they didn't give that level of detail. Celia produced the most STUNNING photographs. Somehow, she perfectly captured me in the most authentic way and she presented my brand exactly as I wanted it to appear. I couldn't recommend Celia more no matter what type of business you have."

“Celia is incredible at what she does. She’s not just a photographer, she is a marketer, someone who understands how to tell your story through images. She makes you feel incredibly comfortable - comfortable enough to truly tell your story to her. I remember our branding session fondly as more than just a branding session. It was so easy to feel happy and relaxed with Celia, and we ended the session bonding about our mutual interests and connections. I could not say enough things about Celia. For a personal branding session, hiring her is an absolute must.”

the world is looking for dreamers, rebels, doers, organizers, creatives, leaders, helpers, and good, kind humans. does this sound like you?

story-driven photography thrives with flexibility and organization, and i've created a process for clients who want to remain true to themselves and create images unique to them.

for branding sessions, i've developed a comprehensive workbook to help develop your story boards and visual brand -- we'll chat, have fun, and work through it all together before your photo session.
