Behind the camera


I often get asked how I got into photography. I think most people expect to hear that I always knew I wanted to be a photographer. The truth is, I kind of fell into it. I started with an entry level camera, just capturing my kids. I guess you could say I kind of had a "natural eye" for photography.  Some of my close friends saw the photos, and asked me to take pictures of their kids. And soon after, my friends' friends asked me to take pictures of their families. Over time, equipment was upgraded and workshops were attended. And it all just kind of spiraled, into a full-grown business here three years later. 

Although I may not have always known I wanted to be a photographer, I've definitely found my passion. I feel so fortunate to do something I love for a living. And I don't take it lightly, that I'm trusted with capturing all these important moments, in peoples' lives. 

I am a wife and mama to two babies- Alesana and Akaius. I'm a sucker for puppies, Mexican food, red wine and a good book (not necessairly in that order). I love all things astro-photography, and you can find me out on the beach taking photos of the Milky Way at 3am, any time conditions are right. 

While I love taking photographs and the whole creative process that goes along with it, what I love most about this job, is all the relationships it's allowed me to build, with all the amazing people, I wouldn't have gotten to meet, otherwise. 

Please read all information before booking.

All appointments can be booked entirely online, through the website, by clicking the "schedule appointment" button, below. 

All sessions are priced differently, based on the amount of work and time that goes in to each type of session. Sessions are all-inclusive. This means each session will come with 30 edited digital images, in a downloadable online gallery, with print release.

By clicking the “Schedule Appointment” button, you will choose the type of session you are booking. My availability is all put into the calendar. You will be able to find a date and time slot that works for you. Your retainer and contract can also be completed through the online booking process. (I only put my schedule in 1-2 months in advance. If booking further out, please contact me via e-mail.)

In order to book, a non-refundable retainer is required, in the amount of $200. This reserves your date and time. After booking is completed online, you will be e-mailed a customized prep-packet, geared toward the type of session you booked.
You will also be sent an invoice for the remaining balance of your session. 

*Birth sessions: Please contact photographer via e-mail, before booking a birth session online. Photographer takes a limited amount of birth sessions yearly. Payment plans are available for these. 
*Newborns: As we don't know when baby will actually make their debut, if you are expecting, please select due date to book. Once baby is here, you will contact me via e-mail and I will provide a couple available dates, within the first few weeks of baby's life, to get you in. If baby is already here OR you are within 3 weeks of due date, please contact me before booking! Do not select an appointment, before talking to me if your baby was already born or you are close to your due date. As with births, I only take a select number of newborns a month. ALL dates are marked open on my availability for newborns, to account for selecting due dates. That does not mean I am actually available ALL dates for newborns. I have a limited amount of bookings per month, to ensure I can work everyone in. Thank you, for understanding. 
*Families: If you are planning to be photographed outside, your time slot MUST be the sunset hour for optimal lighting. This is the only time I shoot outdoors. This will vary, based on the season.

"Rachael did an amazing job with my little one's newborn photos. She has an incredible talent for working with children and babies, in a warm and comforting way, that allows her to capture really beautiful images. As a new mom (again), I wasn't initially convinced that it was the best time for family photos, but they ended up being some of my favorites. Also, I left some leniency with the theme shots, and her interpretation was so creative. I will happily work with her in the future as my kiddos grow. Thank you, Rachael!"
– Katie B.

"I'm not sure if there are words I can use that would do Rachael justice! She is positively amazing! Her love for photography shows in her work. I came across her by happenstance, but will continue to return for the quality, excellence, and care she puts into every single picture!"    -Nakeia H.

"Working with Rachael was a breeze. She was able to capture my girls beautifully! I am very happy I went with her, as she is the best around here. We will be admiring her work on our walls for years to come. Thank you!"
-Bernie Y.

"So not only was she patient with my wild one year old and my talkative 7 year old, but when I got my photos back, I was speechless! This woman works wonders. These are the best photos of my boys, I have ever seen in my life. We will cherish them forever. I highly recommend her, and will be sending everyone I meet her way."
-Jessica R.

"Rachael is not only amazingly talented, but she is so patient and fun with kids during a shoot! It's not your typical family photo experience- she makes it fun! I absolutely adore her and would recommend her to anyone."
-Jen R.

"Rachael did an amazing job on my family pictures. I have a very uncooperative family, when it comes to getting photos done, and she was able to get some really amazing pictures! I would highly recommend her!"
 -Jamie B.

"Rachael is an awesome and extremely skilled photographer. She did a fantastic job with my 2 pups. The sets were so cute and the photos were better than I ever expected or could have imagined. Thanks, Rach!
-Lauren B.

"Rachael captured one of the most important moments of our lives, with the birth of our son. Her patient demeanor, artistic view, and attention to detail made the experience excellent. We are forever grateful we had her there to capture that for us!"
