Family

Family… it’s the most important thing. It’s what you cherish more than anything else. It’s something you’ve grown, nurtured, and protected. It’s your husband, your wife, your kids, your parents, your pets. Everyone’s family is different and special and crazy… all in the best ways. Perfectly imperfect. I build a relationship with you that spans the course of many years and I love being lucky enough to be on this journey with you and watch your family grow and change.

My fear is that we all pile folders on our tablets, phones, and computers full of images that we aren’t in. Memories that we aren’t captured in along with our loved ones. My fear is that most of us won’t invest in professional photographs with the people closest to us that are REAL and AUTHENTIC. Full of laughter and messy living rooms. This is how I want to capture you. Don’t let the days pass by without freezing these memories and making them tangible. Without hanging real images on your walls, not just on Instagram. These images are time capsules, for you to go back to in 10, 20, 50 years and remember these moments. I want to give you the opportunity to put your camera phones away for a few hours and give yourself the gift of being in the memories yourself. Leave it to me, I got you!

Investment

so how much?

After having an amazing experience with Rachel for our wedding, we knew we would turn to only one photographer after we decided to start a family. She's shot 2 maternity sessions, a post delivery hospital session, 2 newborn sessions, and 4 family sessions. She delivered the most beautiful portraits of our family that we could ever ask for. She works so well with our kids and makes us all feel comfortable so we can be ourselves. She is our family photographer, will always be, and now a close family friend.

Rachel makes magic! From the first few moments of our engagement shoot, to our wedding day, and now with our newborn and family photos. She brought out the best in us and found those little moments that can't be forced or posed and captured them for us to be able to cherish on the walls of our home. The absolute BEST! We look forward to having her capture many more to come!

My most recent family session with my husband's siblings was the fifth time I've hired Rachel! She's taken my family pictures twice, our engagement pictures, my bridal shower pictures, and our wedding pictures. I wouldn't change it for the world and I know she'll be there to capture many more moments for us! Rachel is truly one in a million when it comes photographers. She will continue to be my photographer and friend for a very long time.

FAQ
What is your shoot style for family sessions?

LIFESTYLE! I don’t bring props or make you come to a stiff studio with a waiting room and boring backdrop. I come to your home or maybe your favorite family spot, or even target! (yes, I’ve done it before). I photograph you as you are. Whether you’re in the market for a maternity session, newborn, family session with your kids or parents, or maybe with your fur babies. I want you to be YOU, pretend I’m not there and let me capture your authentic moments.

What if my kids or pets don't cooperate?

That’s okay! Remember, I don’t like to do a lot of stiff posing or make you guys look at the camera too much. So just hang out, relax and be a family, I have lots of tricks to get both humans and pets to have fun and enjoy our session.

What should we wear?

I can help you with that! About a week or so before your session we will do a style consultation, brainstorm with style and color combinations so that you look both natural and comfortable in your photographs. I will even refer you to a personal style consultant if you wish!

What if the weather is gross?!

If you know you want an outdoor session and mother nature doesn’t feel like cooperating that day, don’t sweat it! We will reschedule at no additional charge.

If I want to have a newborn session when should I schedule it?

I try to photograph newborns at less than a week old, as long as mama and baby are happy and healthy and up for it. This is just a ballpark, if you’re unable to get your session done this early please don’t stress, we can schedule it as soon as you’re ready.

I want to do a bump session! When is a good time in my pregnancy to schedule?

Around 36 weeks is what I shoot for!

My kids are all grown up, do you do family sessions at all stages?

ABSOLUTELY! I am a huge advocate for families continuing to get new photographs taken as often as once a year if possible. You can never preserve enough memories.

We are planning a family reunion with a LARGE group of people. Can you photograph this huge crazy family of mine?

Yes! I have traveled overnight for family reunions before. It’s such a fun event and it’s the perfect reason to hire a photographer. Contact me and we will build a custom package for your event!
