Photographing families has a special place in my heart and I love every chance I get to document them.

When I was a kid I loved looking through all the old photos my parents kept in a big box. Photos are so special in this way. We often take them for granted in this photo saturated world we live in. But the truth is, one day, they may be all that your family has left of you and where life took you.

That’s why I love encouraging families to book a lifestyle session with me. It’s low pressure, low stress. All I want to do is capture you being you, with those most special to you. I’m not going to ask your little one(s) to sit still for an hour. But I am going to encourage them to run around, wild and free, just as children should be. Because that is when the joy will SHINE from them, and that’s exactly what I want to document. I want to photograph exactly how you interact together. Whether snuggly, giggly, or even teary-eyed from holding your precious babies. It also is a chance for me to document Mom, who often doesn’t find herself in many photos with her fam (cause she’s always the one taking them)! I always try to get at least a couple photographs of you guys (the parents) together.. because without you two, there would be no kiddos! Your relationship is beautiful and what brought your whole family to life. It deserves at least a few candid shots.

Lifestyle sessions begin at $300.

These are for: family, newborn, & maternity.
Extended family (for multiple families, reunions, etc!) sessions also available.
I do offer birth photography as well, but due to photographing weddings, I am only available at certain times to book births.
If this is something you are interested in, reach out and I will let you know if I would be available around your due date.

”I found Rachel through a google search and loved the look of her photos! I took a chance and booked her for family photos and absolutely loved them! I honestly loved so many of what she gave us, it was hard to choose which ones were favorites!! That's a great problem to have. She was professional, friendly, spunky and just all around wonderful. She even shook a rattle that I brought the whole time to get my 1 year old's attention! lol. She sent our photos to us in two weeks, so that was great! Love the style/mood of her photography. I would definitely love to use her again in the future!“

“Rachel took our family pictures after my daughter was born. It was such a fun and relaxed experience, and Rachel was calm and creative. It is not always easy to get a toddler to enjoy pictures as well as coordinating a newborn, but Rachel embraced the moments and got such sweet pictures and moments I will treasure always, and have beautiful images on my walls to prove it! I definitely recommend Rachel! ❤️”
