Becoming a parent is one of the most amazing, wonderful, challenging, and exciting milestones I've ever experienced, so I absolutely love capturing this precious, fleeting time for other families. With my newborn sessions, we can use a studio space or shoot in your own home. Sessions are free-flowing and low stress, because I allow plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes, or just breaks when the little one needs it. Let's capture this once-in-a-lifetime milestone for you to remember forever!

"Rachel is an amazing photographer who has captured our family through every stage. We always cherish the photos that she is able to get."
