About Rachel

First and foremost, I am a mother of three and a wife to a hard-working, loving, and dedicated man. They are my world. 

I didn't grow up with a camera in my hand, but photography was a hobby I sought after I spent months planning our perfect wedding. I needed something to keep me busy - to call my own. I didn't realize when I bought my first camera in 2010 that photography would become such a part of me. 

It was the birth of my two sons in 2012 and 2014 that have inspired me to turn this passion of mine into something more. It's incredible how fast time flies when your children are born, and before you know it they are saying their first words and taking their first steps. The images of my children take me back to each stage and stir up so many emotions. Those photos are so incredibly special, and I would love nothing more than to provide other families with such timeless keepsakes. 

I am a studio and on-location, natural light photographer specializing in motherhood, newborn, child, and family photography. I am based in Birmingham, AL where my studio is located, but I'm always up for traveling. My medium of choice is old-school, analog film due to the sentimental and dreamy feel and tones it produces. Film is timeless and authentic, which is what I aim to show in your images.
