Blackberry & Thyme Champagne with Chelsea Miller

Chelsea Miller is a Michigan photographer, avid thrifter, and a lover of all things art, fashion, and coffee. When she's not shooting or editing photos, she's usually napping with her cat Kiki, crying over proposal videos, or baking sweet, occasionally delicious goods. She is soon moving to Seattle where she can't wait to be amongst the mountains, rain, and the creative people of Washington.
