What they're saying
Sarah B.
Rachel was an absolute pleasure to work with, and we will cherish the pictures she captured of our family! We had a newborn lifestyle shoot with her at our home and I cannot say enough good things about how she interacted with our newborn and toddler. She was able to capture such great photos of our family that are so natural and fun. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to have family or newborn pictures!

Jorie B.
Photographing two three year olds is not easy and Rachel was so patient and creative in trying to get photos that captured their unique personalities. The photos themselves were gorgeous; the best we've ever had (Rachel is our fourth photographer). We loved Rachel and will definitely use her in the future!

Rachel has done an amazing job every time we have used her! She has been able to capture my toddler's sweetness and spunk magically! I've also loved the work she has done for my professional needs as a doula: prenatal visits, birth support, and newborn/postpartum visits. I can't say enough good things about her professionalism and the quality of her work!

Rachel did a newborn shoot for my son in her studio and it exceeded my expectations! I told Rachel that one of my goals was to get some family and sibling pictures however by 3 year old daughter is extremely camera shy (and shy in general). Rachel gave great tips for preparing my daughter for the day. Rachel’s [studio] was calming but entertaining for a toddler. And the photos really reflect our experience as my toddler was beaming with joy, my newborn was peaceful, and my fiancé and I were happy and at ease. It was a great day and I highly recommend Rachel!
