Thank you for visiting my website! My name is Rachael and my love for photography started when I had my children, documenting their lives. My passion then grew as I wanted to help others document their lives, as well.

A little bit of me- I love the sun either beaming down on me or watching sunsets, I love watching light and what is does for a person in pictures and in health. A late night photoshop junkie, A little OCD, tender-hearted, determined, caring, confident, creative, and family oriented. I hate putting socks together after they come out of the dryer. I have to have a clean sink… absolutely no dishes in there! I love cuddling and playing make believe with my children. I love having family dance parties daily. I twirl my hair and have since I was a baby. I love English food like crumpets, Cornish pasties, ribina, etc. I love watching soccer too, must be the English in me.

About my style of photography, I am an on location photographer. I love trying to capture “real life” and your true personality.  I like to think of myself as a story teller and by taking your pictures, I am documenting your life and its story. I love to capture you being YOU. Being you means the curiosity of a toddler, kids making silly faces, a new mother snuggling her newborn, a family snuggled in bed with their feet hanging out, a teen doing what they do best, a newly married or engaged couple with excitement in their eyes, wondering what is new in store for them and the incredible journey. A mother expecting and the tender heart and calmness about them. Whatever you is, that is what I’d like to capture. So, when you share these photos, they will get a little glimpse of who YOU are. Although, I do take a few posed shots, most are candid and spontaneous. Before the session, I will ask you a few questions to understand who you really are which will help me to bring out your true personality. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the shoot so we can get to know each other a little better and loosen up a bit.

Newborns and Babies– I am very patient and know these tender souls have a time of there own. We will work around their schedule. I am fine for a little feeding time.

Children– I like to acquaint myself and play with the kids a bit so it is  relaxed and playful. It helps me to be in charge with out having the pressures of a parent. Please ensure that your child has a good night’s rest and normal routine (before or after nap). We can work around their schedules so they are at their happiest.

Teens– Please bring something that signifies you! I love bright colors and layers. I try to be more creative because teens are willing to try new things. Sometimes I’ll even turn on music to spice up the shoot.

Families– Relax! No stressing, moms and dads! We will be organized so it is less stress on you. I can help with what to wear, location that fits your personality, and help with deciding what you are looking for to decorate your home. Couples shoots, kids together, individuals shoots.

Engagements– BE YOU, if your first date was at a restaurant or your favorite hang out together, we will be creative and put together amazing pictures at your favorite location (if there is a meaningful one). There is something about couples in love the excitement in their eyes and pure love beaming from them.

Maternity– Don’t worry, I take great care of you! You get a little extra care… lots of breaks if needed ,water, anything you need! I like to have you wear something tight on your belly to show how beautiful you are with that precious child inside you. I try to capture the excitement of meeting that new personality.

Weddings– I love weddings because everyone is so full of joy! There are so many emotions to capture and you will treasure these photographs for years to come!

Photographs are the best investment you can make because they last forever.
