Cheyenne Mckee / Photos by Chy

Owner of business posing for a headshot

My name is Cheyenne Mckee and I own Photos by Chy. Growing up in San Diego, I always had a camera in my hand taking pictures of the beautiful sunsets, oceans, and architecture. As I grew older I realized that I had a passion for photography, which turned into a hobby. Then, with the push of family, I decided to turn it into a business. After I got my first client and found out I love doing it as a profession, I hit the ground running and never stopped.

I specialize in capturing stunning portraits, special events, and family photos, but I take all kinds of pictures! My creative eye and personal touch allow me to capture memorable moments and turn them into art. I am dedicated to delivering exceptional images that meet the needs of all my clients and communicate throughout our time together.

My Process


Introduction - Forms And Communication

  • I will send you a form to fill out so I have all the info I need

  • I will set up an introductory phone call or an in-person meet-up to clear up any details and answer any questions you may have

  • In the call, we will list out your expectations for the shoot and I explain my process

  • After we set your expectations, I will send you a contract to sign along with an invoice for the deposit to book the date


During The Photoshoot - What To Expect

  • I will always visit a new location beforehand so I can scope out the best areas for the shoot

  • I will send you a couple of tips and tricks for the day of the shoot so you're more comfortable with getting your picture taken

  • I give clear and simple directions for poses and make the shoot fun and easy so you can sit back and look amazing!


After The Shoot - Pyament, Pictures, And Reviews

  • A deposit of half the total quote is due when signing the contract. 

  • Within a week after the photo shoot, I will send you a group of photos to go through and choose which you would like me to edit according to your chosen package

  • After I receive your selected pictures I will edit them and send them back to you for a final sign-off and make any necessary changes

  • Your final product will be sent along with the last invoice with the remaining balance, due 3 days after receipt.

  • Finally, leave a review on Yelp or email me your thoughts!
