As a photographer, I feel it is essential for my clients to gain access to select from all  usable photos I take during a session. I believe every desirable photo captured at your session should be yours to choose from. It does me no good to withhold photos from you. I send all your gorgeous images to you in a private password protected online gallery. This allows me to have you, my client, pick the images that appear in your final gallery. 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.  

I truly believe photos are best enjoyed in frames and in books, rather than on phones and on Facebook. This is why I highly encourage my clients to order professional quality prints. The difference between professional prints and prints ordered online (or at the big-box store) is simply astounding. Professional prints are created with quality and will withstand the test of time- creating an heirloom to cherish for generations. I am proud to offer my clients professional prints at reasonable prices.

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 $300 or a mini maternity session for $200.

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!"
