The Edrington’s |Mt. Carmel, IL| El Paso, TX | Portrait & Wedding Photographer| Pink Vintage Photography

This is one of my favorite couples! 🙂 I absolutely love photographing my best friends! It’s a blast seeing their lives change and some day I can’t wait to photograph all your little ones. (*Yes, I will fly back to IL for this*) Until then…I’m so glad that I got to spend an awesome day with the two of you! You guys are adorable and you can tell how in love you guys are.  I know it’s a few months early…but Happy 3 year Anniversary!  (I seriously, can’t believe it’s almost been three years.) Enjoy you too!

I hope Jeremy LOVES the Camo and Guns! 🙂 I think they turned out pretty awesome!!


End of Summer: Mini-Sessions |Mt. Carmel, IL| El Paso, TX | Portrait Photographer| Pink Vintage Photography



Aren’t sure? Well, lets talk about it.  Let’s think when the last time was that you had a professional photographer photograph your beautiful family, your children, or you and your husband.  It has probably been quite some time by now. Am I right? I know that everyone is busy and sometimes our Husbands (I’ll agree, I think my Husband would too 🙂 )  are not really the ones for being photographed, but honestly photographs document a point in time and you will cherish those beautiful portraits forever.  When is a better time than now to book that session? Time most certainly gets away from us. So why not? You have nothing to lose only beautiful professional portraits to treasure.  🙂


Exciting News!! |Mt. Carmel, IL| El Paso, TX | Portrait Photographer| Pink Vintage Photography

Welcome Everyone,

Anyone notice besides me that the blog got a new look? Let me know what you think of it. 🙂

If you missed my last post, Pink Vintage has relocated to EL PASO, TX.  My Husband, Nathan, and I are enjoying ourselves and the nice HOT, I do mean HOT, weather.  On the plus side I have seen rain once since I moved here not including the storm we ran into on the drive down. Let’s just say that driving through a sand storm is NOT the same as driving through fog.

Anyways, I’ve realized that I have missed updating facebook and my blog in a long time and there are some awesome sessions I haven’t posted so hold tight they will be coming. I promise.

I will be scheduling sessions and have a day of mini sessions planned for August 1-8 in Mt. Carmel, IL. I will post details and exact dates when those are determined. If you are interested please contact me and let me know. There will be limited availability.

Here’s a little something until I post the full session…This family is WONDERFUL and I was excited to photograph
such a loving family.
      *full session will be posted later* 

All my love,


New |Mt. Carmel, IL| El Paso, TX | Portrait Photographer| Pink Vintage Photography

Hey all,

So what has been new with Pink Vintage? Lots of things. Starting with Pink Vintage has moved to El Paso, Tx.  I will be scheduling sessions in Mt. Carmel, IL when I am home visiting. I will be home in August for a wedding and scheduling a few sessions then.

I recently got married April 14 to the most amazing man! I am thrilled and excited to see all the adventures life has to offer us. I will post a few of our wedding pictures later so be on the look out for that.

I may or may not be slightly obsessed with pinterest. To say the least my wedding had quite a few pinterest inspired projects!  You may be also, so you may want to check it out:

Pink Vintage has upgraded…to a brand new website. I am still in the process of updating and loading more portraits to it, so please be patient and check back for updates. Your session may be featured on it! 🙂

If you would like to access a previous session please email me and I will get you the link to your session.

I decided I would keep this blog post short, but check back for more and upcoming adventures and sessions!

All my love,


Fabulous Save The Dates! |Mt. Carmel, IL Portrait Photographer| Pink Vintage Photography

Save the dates the great debate.

As I’ve been researching save the dates I’ve noticed that some blogs and people will say that they are very important key in wedding planning and the invitation process.  I feel like more than ever though everyones save the dates look the same.  Just a simple picture and the details.  Let’s think, what can we do to make them really stand out.  This has been the question I’ve been asking myself, so designing my save the dates has been an interesting task.  🙂 My feeling is why not step outside the typical save the date box and do something that really expresses you and your Fiance as a couple?!  I do think that Save the Dates can be a great and you can incorporate your engagement session.  While looking up fabulous ideas I came across a blog post that has A LOT and I mean A LOT of ideas.  Keep in mind your photographer would probably LOVE you lots if you wanted something creative, or I would! hehe.


All my love,

Chelsea Miller


P.S. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! And Thanks to my clients for an awesome 2011! 🙂

Evan & Beth: Engaged! |Mt. Carmel, IL Portrait Photographer| Pink Vintage Photography

Hello, Kansas City, Mo!!! Woot woot!! Let’s just say I’ve been itching to see Kansas City for some time now. And thanks to Evan and Beth my dreams finally came true,haha. You see Evan is living out in Kansas City and Beth is in Cincinnati and after their engagement session being rescheduled 2 times I decided I needed to just come to Kansas City to finish up their outdoor pictures. Anyways, the locations were awesome and as always Evan and Beth were a blast to work with. They were up for anything and of course the shoot wouldn’t have been successful if we wouldn’t have gotten to told to stay off and away from the Sculpture as the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum (home of the awesome more than life sized shuttle cocks). Anyways, you can check out their indoor studio session here:

I’m so glad I got to photograph such an AWESOME couple!!! 🙂 Enjoy!!!!

Heineman Family: Cory, Lacey, and Chevy! |Mt. Carmel, IL Portrait Photographer| Pink Vintage Photography

Wow what a family session! To say the least I had an absolutely fabulous time photographing you and your cute little family! 🙂 Chevy did awesome!!! I’m glad that I got to spend such a fun morning with you at the Alton Park. Who knew that was there? Considering I’ve passed the park a million times and never knew it was a park. Amazing what you miss when you don’t “stop to smell the roses”. Haha. Well, please ENJOY this sneak preview!! 🙂
