Your story. Sometimes it’s not perfect. But it’s yours and I would be honored to tell it. Whatever season that you’re in, I’d love to document it. I’ll be there to give you grace, direction, laughs and memorable moments in your history to look back on forever.
I do things a bit differently,
my approach is much more about your connection, your heart— letting your true personality show through.
It’s about a feeling rather than posed, forced photographs. I go beyond that and figure out what you love about one another, the way you have grown as a family, and the bond that you share. It’s a wild ride— I want to slow it down for a little while and allow time to stand still so you can remember what it feels like.
"Having Rachel photograph my husband and I over the years has been such a treasure. She’s more than a photographer who takes photos. She becomes a genuine friend who you adopt into your family and she grows with you capturing the big moments: engaged, married, and babies.We’ve hired other photographers in the past, but I was impressed with how easily Rachel communicated her vision. It made Josh and I feel confident with each pose. She is truly gifted at capturing each of her client’s stories with such authenticity.
These memorable moments are once in a lifetime. Thank you for documenting the joy and anticipation we had on the arrival of our baby girl. This is something I’ll cherish for years to come! We love you!”

"Rachel is more than an incredibly talented photographer - she takes on the role of friend, stylist, DJ, hype woman, and and memory maker. She turns the sometimes intimidating experience of family photos into something even my husband enjoys!! As someone who typically feels awkward in front of the camera, I mean it when I say it’s actually FUN and empowering to work with Rachel, from start to finish! And the end result is the cherry on top: beautiful photos that capture the best version of yourself. It brings so much joy to look back at the chapters Rachel has photographed." - ALI KELLY
Cue the music and do your thing. I'll provide prompts to help you and your family get comfortable (no need to worry about what to do with your hands), but mostly we’ll just hang out as friends and let the magic happen.
my family photography sessions start at $600.00 - together we plan outfits, and the location. I never limit the amount of time spent with a family
My session fee is $600.00 / I take a $75.00 deposit to secure your session in my schedule
I also offer film as an add on to my family sessions, I charge $50.00 a roll of film (36 images delivered digitally)
I don't limit the amount of images delivered, but it typically ranges from 100-150 images.
I charge $65.00/ hr of driving after the first hour there and back (those two are on me) after that, it's $65.00 an hour. I also have my clients snag me a hotel if the drive is over 3 hours. I currently live in Howell, MI.
Yes! After you've booked your family session with me I will forward over my outfit guide and pinterest inspo board.
