Travel & News
Due to being high risk with asthma, I will not be traveling until further notice.
ALL local shoots will be spread out to 1 shoot each week.
Clients need to either be vaccinated or tested negative a few days prior to the shoot. Please try to limit risky interactions before the shoot if possible.
If you happen to feel sick or afraid you might have been exposed, just let me know and I'll happily reschedule you for a later date.
Only one person or one household in the photo space at a time.
I will wear a mask any time i'm in close proximity to you. I appreciate wearing masks if you can but understand they can't be worn at all times during photos and makeup.

I'm Chelsea aka Tragic Glamour and I am a 32 yr old artist from Northern California. I started doing photography when I was 17 after I discovered a love for it while building my makeup portfolio. I have a passion for pop culture, marketing, fashion, drag, traveling, film, and art. I love helping others feel empowered through my art.
I have an AA degree in Graphic Design from FIDM and have spent half my life building up my skills in design, fashion, makeup, photography, styling and more. I have adhd and I like to do a little of everything. My current focuses are fashion/editorial photography, drag, spiritual healing and my Etsy shop of accessories and decor. I'm not sure where I want to go from here other than to share my art with the world so i'm open to whatever life brings me.
What sets me apart from others? I'm an all-in-one package!
