“Rachel did a maternity/family session for us and I am blown away by her responsiveness, skill, and attention to detail. Truly, she is wonderful. We ended up doing an in-home session based on the weather and time of year, as well as ease for our family. Rachel was so accommodating when it came to scheduling. On the day of our session, she arrived promptly and was so very easy and comfortable to work with. Our six year old daughter loved her and we knew that this was a great idea. Rachel spent a good hour with us and none of it felt rushed or posed. Rachel had a teaser of our photos up on Instagram within hours and it was lovely. I've been waiting to post this review until we got our full gallery back and now that we have, I have no words. Her use of light is absolutely breathtaking and we will treasure these photos for years to come. Truly, this is an investment worth making and I can't say enough good things about Rachel and her work. I can't imagine going to anyone else in future.”
"I was looking for a natural light photographer to capture my son's 6 month photos and some family photos. I am so happy I found Rachel's website and that she was available for our shoot. Rachel was professional, flexible, and a pleasure to work with! We wanted outdoor photos in the middle of winter, so we knew there would be some risk associated with the colder temperatures and an unpredictable infant! Rachel made us comfortable during the photo session, and even went out her way to change the location last minute. She was also able to secure a permit to take photos at a park on short notice. The photos turned out wonderful, and the turn around was very fast. I would highly recommend Rachel for family photos and look forward to working with her in the future!"
”We purchased the maternity and newborn photo package, and we couldn’t be happier with the photos. Rachel was incredibly accommodating, had great tips and advice to prepare for the sessions, and most importantly, brought to life the special moments we envisioned. I would recommend Rachel to anyone thinking of doing either a maternity session, a newborn session, or both!” -Eric
"We love our photos and had a great experience with Rachel! She is super sweet and was so helpful through the entire process. She has location suggestions, which is great when you're indecisive like me. She helps with outfit ideas and even encouraged me to text her examples of what I was thinking of wearing if I needed suggestions. Rachel was great with our almost one year old son, even though he was approaching bedtime and a little cranky. I wish I would have found her prior to my son being born. I would have done maternity session and then newborn, 3, 6 and 9 month pictures with her too."
"My husband purchased a family/newborn photo session with Rachel for my birthday and we could not have been more pleased. Rachel was very friendly, professional and responsive to our needs. She took her time when taking pictures of our 3 week old daughter and allowed us to take breaks as needed (which is a must with a newborn!). She also did an amazing job capturing the spirit of our 2 year old son. We love the photos she took and look forward to having her take more in the future!"
"I cannot say enough great things about Rachel, she is simply fantastic and we would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!! Rachel did a 1 year photo session for our daughter's 1st birthday which included us taking some family pictures, solo shots of our daughter, and a cake smash session (which was so fun!!). Prior to the photo shoot, I sent Rachel several long emails and she always took the time to respond very promptly and thoroughly; she was also so patient with me as I asked her a lot of detailed questions. She was INCREDIBLY helpful to us in figuring out where we should take the pictures and helping us decide what to wear for the photo session. She even took the time to scout out some outdoor locations in advance of our photo shoot (as we told her we specifically wanted to take some outside pictures) to make sure she was well prepared, which we really, really appreciated! We met Rachel the day of the photo shoot. She arrived 5 minutes early and was incredibly warm. We immediately felt very comfortable with her and she did an amazing job of capturing candid moments with everyone in our family, including our dog who was very afraid of the camera! We really had a lot of fun doing the photo shoot and our daughter loved Rachel! She did a great job of being able to capture our daughter despite her constantly moving around and putting her fingers in her mouth!! After the photo shoot, Rachel turned our pictures around SO FAST and we absolutely LOVED all the pictures she took. All in all, Rachel is absolutely fantastic and we will definitely be recommending her to all our family and friends and be using her in the future!" -Nisha
“Rachel is amazingly talented! We highly recommend her and couldn't be happier with how our maternity photos turned out. She even provided us with a video which we absolutely love. We were lucky enough to book her at the last minute, and she was highly professional, easy going, and quickly put us at ease. We would absolutely hire her again in the future!” -Megan
"My husband and I used Rachel to take family photos of us and our 10 month old at a local park. From the day I first contacted her, she promptly responded to my questions about what to expect, etc. On the day of the shoot, she was super accommodating and made us feel comfortable. The best part was what she captured in her pictures - the details and emotion that I didn't see on other photographers' websites. I'm not exaggerating when I say I teared up seeing the photos and will treasure them forever. She definitely has a gift and was such a pleasure to work with - we will definitely be calling her again!
“We did a maternity session with Rachel and absolutely fell in love with our photos! I had been having a hard time with self-confidence and that was getting in the way of making positive memories of pregnancy, so when I came across Rachel's site, her beautiful photographs and the wonderful way she captures the joy and wonder of parenthood told me that she would not only be able to capture some beautiful memories for us, but would help me learn to love myself during these puffy months of third trimester! She absolutely delivered! She was so easy and fun to work with, putting both me and my husband at ease, and she caught so many great moments it's hard to pick out our favorites! I can't recommend her enough!”
"We were looking for a photographer for our maternity session and found Rachel's pictures on Pinterest. We contacted her and she replied right away. Before the session, she sent us a link to her client lounge where we were able to get styling tips for our session and different location options of where to shoot, which was great because we were struggling trying to decide where we wanted our pictures taken. The day of the session she was super nice and made us feel comfortable in front of the lens. She knew very well the place where we shot, which was great because we were able to spend more time shooting than looking for the right spot! After the session, she posted a couple of pictures on her social media pages as a preview, which we really appreciated because we were dying to see the pictures. After a week and a half, we had all our pictures delivered via an online gallery. I couldn't recommend her enough <3" -Ximena
"My wife and I hired Rachel for an anniversary photo session. Rachel was a pleasure to work with. She gracefully directed us through the entire photo shoot. We were very happy with the original and great-looking photos we got at the end. Unlike many other photographers, Rachel is transparent and generous with her work. She took only a week for post-production, and gave us full-resolution copies of 40+ great photos. We are very happy to have hired her for this photo session and will absolutely consider working with her again in the future."
"Rachel took our maternity photos for my second pregnancy-which meant convincing a somewhat skeptical three year old to get on board. Rachel was great to work with for the actual shoot-she had a great eye for locations/ideas, but was very careful to make sure she got any particular pictures we wanted. She was very quick to turn around images, and I really appreciated how straight forward her packages are. The package price gets you the photo shoot, and access to your electronic images, which you can download and use however you like. The end results were beyond our expectations and the whole process was completely stress free." -Ashley
"Super patient with my special needs kiddo who is reluctant to be touched, my 2 yr old who thinks no is always the best response and an awkward preteen. She found the beauty in our chaos and i will forever be grateful!"
