Your family is your everything! You embrace the beautiful chaos that is parenthood — though some days are long, the years fly by! Whether you're about to become first-time parents, welcoming a new little one into your family, or looking for updated family portraits, you want to preserve this moment in your family's life. You value sharing these memories with your kids as they get older, and years from now, having beautiful heirlooms to look back on.
Once your session is booked, I'll provide you with location recommendations and a style guide with tips on what to wear! We'll hop on a brief call before your session to align on final details.
During your session, your only job is to relax and have fun as a family! We'll capture lots of candid moments that let your kids' personalities shine through.
Once your photos are ready, we'll meet for your viewing & ordering appointment. All collections include both printed pieces and a set amount of digital files.
All portrait sessions include one-on-one design services. If you love your photos on the screen, just wait until you see them in print! I offer a curated selection of archival, heirloom products and will guide you through options so you walk away from your session with the pieces that are the most meaningful to you.
"We had a wonderful experience with Rachel. She was so warm during the session. Our photos were perfect, and I look forward to working with her for our family photos again next year!"
“Not only did we end up with beautiful pictures that will last a lifetime, but Rachel really listened to what I wanted to capture for this shoot. I especially loved the candid pictures that she took ”
“We absolutely loved working with Rachel for our family photos. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and was able to capture perfect moments with our 6 month old smiling and looking at the camera.”
Standard portrait sessions are up to 1 hour long, however if you're including extended family members in your photos additional time is recommended. For sessions at more than 1 location, additional time is also required.
Family portrait sessions will take place on location in the greater Los Angeles area. I'll make recommendations based on what you are looking for. Whether your main goal is something close to home, or an epic backdrop for your family photos, we'll find the perfect spot!
If you'd like the session to take place at your home, we can certainly do that too!
All collections include both print and a set number of digital files. I also offer a la carte options so there's room to customize. All digital files provided are high resolution and include personal print release.
Yes! I offer mini sessions every fall. Mini sessions are perfect if you're primarily looking for a few updated family photos for annual holiday cards. Sign up for my mini session email list to receive mini session updates.
