Before your session: Booking is easy- clients select from the packages below. From there, I send out a contract, a questionnaire, and a PDF session guide to help you prepare for your session.  From there- we style, we shoot, and we have a great time making memories. I walk you through each step of the way. Any questions that come up, I am there to answer. 

After your session: As a photographer, I feel it is essential for my clients to take part in the selection process of picking their photos from a session. I edit a total of 20 images for mini sessions. This allows me to have you, my client, pick the images that appear in your final gallery. With full sessions I edit all usable images from your session for you to make your selections.  Within two weeks of your session, I will send you an edited proofing gallery. From there- you can select what images you love most and want to download. As my client, you will always be able to digitally download your chosen high resolution images through your private portal. From there, you can print them, share them, and cherish them--- no strings attached.

Please note both newborn and fresh 48 sessions are all inclusive. ALL usable images are delivered to my clients. No selections needed.

Fresh 48

Newborn sessions in the comfort of home. My session focuses on capturing the teeny details of your baby along with the interactions between your newborn and his or her family. This session is untimed and all inclusive so we are not stressed about anything at all! Guidance is given each step of the way from styling to posing. Our overall goal is to create organic and emotive images. Clients can expect 50+ images. *Newborn clients can also add-on a fresh 48 session for $400 or a mini maternity session for $300.

Photos taken in hospital within your little one's first day or two of life. They are truly babies first photos. The goal is to capture as many details about this special time as possible. I capture those little (often missed) details of the joys of parenthood and new life. We get some great shots of baby alone as well as plenty of images of baby with his or her new parents. Clients can expect 30+ images.

"Rachel perfectly captured every small moment from after our son’s birth. We couldn’t have dreamed of an easier or more comfortable photo session after a loooong 2 days in the hospital. She was so kind and patient as we had to stop to accommodate our fussy newborn. The photos are so beautiful and bright. She knew exactly how to utilize the not-so-pretty hospital room to still deliver amazing photos. We can’t thank her enough for helping us save those memories!"
