Let's Chat

Photographing families with young children is my jam! I love the energy and expression in these sessions. During your session, I will use prompts and games to keep children engaged and happy, which will easily allow me to capture their unique personalities! I have extensive nursing experience with children with special needs including autism, trisomy 21, special equipment, ADHD, limb differences, and traumatic brain injuries.

I am able to safely pose your baby and monitor them during your session. 

With 10+ years of pediatric nursing experience (including pediatric ICU experience), your newborn is safe with me.

Client Love Notes

"She's quick to respond via text, brings you up to speed on everything you need to know prior to the shoot, and makes you and your baby feel extremely comfortable in the studio."

- Caitlin T.

"Nothing felt rushed and we had her undivided attention. She focused on all of the details and was excellent at holding and calming our baby so that we could just relax."

"I have referred Rachael to friends in the same situation with children. I have been wanting to find someone that I can use over and over again and I will definitely be using Rachael for the future!!!"

"She is so great with kids and even when you think the kids are not totally cooperating with the family photos she always manages to get the perfect shot! I can’t recommend her enough for family sessions."

A peek at the process

Maternity & newborn sessions should be booked as soon as possible, most commonly in the second trimester. I only schedule a certain number of sessions per month and fully book 2-3 months in advance, therefore the sooner the better!

A signed contract and retainer guarantees your newborn session. Once baby arrives, we will plan a date for your newborn session (usually done on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings). Ideally, newborn sessions are done when baby is 5-14 days young.
