Our Founder

Chelsea is our founder, the main photographer of Brand Gloss, and is on a mission to help women succeed with business assets that speak for themselves.

Chelsea Schmidt

Chelsea is an uplifting and ambitious serial entrepreneur who loves nothing more than opening businesses and helping other women succeed in their goals. Fueled by her daily espresso shots (and after 5 pm espresso martinis), this fearless spirit never fails to put her marketing skills to the test with her newest ventures, always aiming for success and harmony in business - and life. But don't underestimate her; while Chelsea is always friendly, she's not afraid to speak her mind and challenge the status quo in pursuit of helping others reach their potential.

Brand Gloss HQ and our private studio space in Manchester.

In downtown Richmond, we have a 1622 sq ft studio for you to have your photo session in. No brick and mortar? No problem. No additional rental fees, either.

The studio has white walls, light oak floors, and black accents. We chose these colors because black and white are the most contrasting colors out there.  We carefully picked out furniture that would pair seamlessly with almost any kind of photo session that takes place at our studio.
