I had the pleasure of working with Rachel while I was nine months pregnant. She was very creative, offering many different photo and lighting options, exploring different settings. guiding me in pose positions, and much more. Rachel was very enthusiastic about the day we spent together and about creating a comfortable and successful experience- she kept things effortless for me and the time flew by. The photographs she took were outstanding. Because of the quality and ease of working with Rachel, I had her take my daughter's birth announcement photographs. Again, I couldn't have been happier! Her creative eye was also evident when she helped in the design of the birth announcement cards. I am very pleased with her professionalism and look forward to working with her soon again.

Rachel has done two photo shoots with us so far, however, based on her work I am sure that there will be more to come! She came to my house for my son's 9 month photos and took pictures of him as he was traveling around our house. The quality of the pictures that I received from Rachel were better and far more natural than the pictures that I had received elsewhere (i.e. Sears) I love that she will take photos wherever you want and that she spends the time needed to get great shots. For my son's 12 month photo shoot we went to 2 different parks and my house to take photos. Everyone that gets one of Devin's photos always asks where I went to get the photos taken. I would recommend Rachel to anyone who likes to have quality photos at an affordable rate with an excellent photographer!

Rachel is an amazing and wonderful photographer! We were fortunate enough to have Rachel come to our home twice, one for a maternity shoot & one for my son's newborn photos. Her natural ability to capture the most precious moments in our lives really shines through in her unique photojournalistic style of work. She is thorough and detailed and just a warm and loving person overall. She is truly a joy to work with.  I would recommend her to anyone wanting to have those special moments captured! We plan to use her again in the future.

We had Rachel come to do a photo shot at our house. She was very timely and was very eager to work with the children. I have a 5 year old, a three year old and a 1 year old!  It was a very busy shoot! The one year old was always running away the three year old would not smile, but Rachel came through and some how changed each situation into a beautiful photo. She had props for the two girls that made them really come to life. On top of that it was a rainy day outside and we wanted to take some shots outside! Rachel thought we should still try some shots outside anyway with some umbrellas, and all I can say it WOW!! She really hit the nail on the head! We just loved the rainy outdoor pictures. Who would have thought that? To top it off it was a surprise for my husband for Father's Day and he was thrilled to see the results of Rachel's work! Her turn around time with the photos made for a wonderful Father's Day for our whole family! Our home and my husband's office are now complete with pictures of our children! Many thanks to a great photographer!

Rachel, thank you so much for the photos you took on my wedding day! I especially loved the candid shots while we were getting ready and during the reception. Your creativity was exactly what I was looking for. I am so happy to have some great photos that are not cookie cutter shots that you see in every wedding album. The photos of our flower girl were better than the ones taken by our official wedding photographer. You have a great knack for capturing those "perfect moments" with kids. Thanks again for everything!

Rachel puts kids and adults alike at total ease and knows how to elicit just the right reaction to make the perfect picture. She’s easy-going while also focused on getting the good shots. She has great instincts and works quickly and efficiently – just what you need for a family photo session. I highly recommend Rachel for all your family photo needs!

Rachel did our maternity pictures and newborn pictures. Our experience with her was great! We were very impressed with the pictures she captured of our son and have received so many compliments on our album. She is very talented and the quality of her work far exceeds the Bella Baby photographers at the hospital! We are looking forward to working with Rachel in the future!

Rachel has taken pictures of my son a number of times. She took pictures of him at the zoo and lagoon when he was 18 months old. This was a wonderful experience for my son and myself. Rachel is great with children, which made my son feel comfortable with her taking pictures of him. She has a very creative eye when taking pictures. The pictures she took were very natural. She captured my sons character perfectly. My son is very active and it is impossible for me to get a good picture of him. Rachel took so many great pictures it was hard to choose which ones to hang in my house. She also took pictures of him at his 2 year old birthday party. She later helped me design his Birthday Thank You cards. I recieved so many complements on the cards from family and friends. I have really enjoyed having Rachel photograph my son and look forward to having her take pictures of him again.

I had the privilege of being one of Rachel's first clients and it was a great experience. As Rachel captured every moment, she did everything to make it fun. It was the perfect photo shoot for a perfect day! I thank her for giving us great memories to last a lifetime.

Rachel was so much fun to work with during our shoot. I have a very busy toddler and she was able to capture his energy with the camera for some fun photos. She was patient and took time to engage him in the shoot.  I really appreciated her enthusiasm for her work!
