                       About Me


My Story

I'm a photographer, a mom, and a travel enthusiast.  I lay on the ground, I tell the jokes and I get the shot, you know the one when you say :  "Holy macaroni.....YESSSSSSS, THAT'S IT"

I am here for you; I'll help you see your life as ART!  These moments of your life will pass you by before you know it.  So let's invest in each other, and make your life stop, for one beautiful moment and capture it all....the missing tooth, the broken arm, the cray hair, the "I picked this outfit out myself" look...ALL OF IT!!!

You won't regret it, I promise!  


My goal to create memories you will not only cherish but photos that will trigger an emotional connection and bring you back to that day, that very moment. I work for you and want nothing more than to share my love of photography and make everlasting friendships that will carry us through time. Whether it's your newborns first days, or your family's special get-togethers, I will be there, in the background capturing life, your life, unscripted.

Your vision for your session will be my guide and I will work to ensure the ideas you have come to life in my pictures. It is my personal creed to make sure you are not only satisfied but thrilled with the results we achieve together.

My husband HATES photos of him and isn’t a fan of any photographers...except Rachael. True story, he will not let anyone photograph our family except her. That speaks volumes if you know my husband
