A Bit About Chelsea

Hi! Thanks for stopping by Roots and Wings Images. I’m Chelsea Salinas, owner of Roots and Wings Images in the Wake Forest/Raleigh area.

As a Navy brat, my family moved around a bunch…so the one link I always fell back on were pictures.  I was the kid constantly up to her elbows in family photos, rummaging through scrapbooks and piecing together my own make-shift photo videos (before the dawn of cool software to do that for you!) From there I headed off to become a chemical engineer (crazy, huh?), but I never lost that desire to capture and create images to fill my head and heart when there was distance between our family.  And now, after having three girls of my own, I’m more than ever dedicated to freezing time, but more importantly teaching them that they are strong, smart and beautiful.

Classic portraits, timeless montages…these are the things I gravitate toward.  All my sessions focus on YOU, creating a fun atmosphere that exudes your personality, love and beauty.  I’m passionate about working with high school aged girls, seeing how ready they are to spread their wings and take on the world, and inspired by their strong roots…what creates their essence.
