I drank it all in and am still inspired by that work and the people I met. I watched the top photographers, stylists, and directors up close as they embraced the simplicity of the gesture, the beauty of the imperfect and created images that became classics.

Now I use my experience to expertly tell your story through dynamic images. I’ve done my job well when you have a balanced collection of photographs to complement your home decor, or in a bespoke coffee table photo book. So whether you want to spend an afternoon together taking photos in your gorgeous home, or spend a day of your vacation together in Colorado, I’m ready!

For years, my work in feature films had me traveling the world, on sets along side fashion photographers and spending lots of time in fine art photography galleries.

A single session is great, but what about when your baby goes off to preschool? High school? College?

Every season is special in its own right, and I’m here to capture them all. 



“Those who seek beauty will find it.”

My photography style has been described as natural, warm, sophisticated, and timeless. Every photo shoot is very relaxed, like a conversation with old friends. Your kids are beautiful and joyful all on their own; why mess with a good thing?

My Style

"I always look forward to her visits because I know she will get amazing photographs but also because it’s fun to hang out with her. When I look back at the photos of my family over the years, I am so grateful to have met her and to have these special images. They are very personal and you can remember exactly how your kids were at that age.”

"I admire Rachel’s casual, narrative style. She takes time to make her subjects feel comfortable and makes a genuine effort to get to know them so she can capture their personalities in her photographs. She becomes almost part of the family, like the fun aunt who comes to visit every year.”

— Lori A., Los Angeles
