Hi, I’m Rachel!
I’ve been shooting professionally for over 15 years. I started out specializing in weddings, but over the last few years I’ve really developed a passion for family portraits. I think it’s because my own family is growing and I don’t want to forget a minute.
My photography style is bright and accurate colors and full of lots of beautiful light. I work hard to capture the love and connection in each family. When you hire me, you’ll get a session with plenty of posing and direction. But don’t worry, I’ll instruct you in a way that will result in plenty of natural, playful images in addition to the posed & smiling ones.
All packages include a “print credit.” Print credit is credit that you can use toward prints through me. They don’t have any cash value (you can’t subtract that amount from the cost of your session), they’re just a bonus! My prints are the absolutely highest quality. To see learn more about print options, scroll down to the section titled “Prints.”
We’ll work together to choose a location. I have lots of great suggestions, and your photos will turn out better if I have a say in the location. I choose locations based on the lighting and time of day that we’ll be shooting, as well as the season. So usually I’ll ask you what kind of look you like (indoor/outdoor, nature/urban, mountains/water, etc.), and then I’ll send you 3 or 4 locations that fit within your style and work well with lighting for the time of year. And then you’ll choose the final location!
Your images will be delivered via a digital link and you’ll be able to download them right to your computer. Then you can print them and share them online. I don’t do CDs any longer, but you’re welcome to burn your own once you receive your link.
Family Portrait Session
Your session is going to include about 50% posed images and 50% playful images. Don’t worry, I’ll direct you all the way along so that your images all look just beautiful! While I have listed a 1 hour time limit, I don’t actually limit the time. If we hit an hour and are still going strong, we’ll keep going!

Extended Family Portraits
Extended Family Portrait sessions are one of my favorite types of sessions to shoot. My number 1 goal is to give you enough beautiful, cohesive photos that you can cover your walls in stunning pieces of art featuring your beautiful family. I have a huge shot list of the shots that I always take, which I’ll send to you after you book! Want to add any special request shots? Absolutely we can!

Mini Sessions are only available on certain dates. Rachel typically offers them once a month (more in the fall), so be sure to check with her if you’d like a mini session!
Mini sessions will give you the same quality of images as a regular session, they’re just shorter and include fewer images. The focus of these sessions are the posed images, although they will include some playful images if there is time. The average is around 75% posed, 25% playful for mini sessions. (Compared to 50%-50% in a regular session.) These are sessions are best for families with really young kids because I shoot very quickly so we’ll be done before everyone starts to get fussy.

Newborn sessions usually take place in my studio. Newborn sessions can be long, because we are completely at the mercy of the baby’s sleep! I schedule sessions for 2.5 hours, but if baby cooperates we might be less than an hour. It just totally depends.
As a mama myself, I always love to include siblings & dad and I in part of our own newborn sessions. So you’re definitely welcome to bring your family to the session if you’d like to! We’ll start with the whole group and end with shots of the baby alone.
Newborn sessions need to be shot when the baby is between 0-16 days old.
Up to 2.5 hours

Can include parents and siblings if desired

If your child is between the ages of 3 months old to 19 years (think senior in high school or leaving on a mission), then a session for them would fall under this category. I love shooting portraits of individual kids. I find that little kids are best behaved for these kinds of sessions, they love the one on one attention.
I even have a lot of clients who have me do a birthday session for each child each year, and it’s just the best to watch their kids grow.
$30 per additional child
