My goal for your session is to capture the "real". I have zero expectations. I want you to come and love on your babies, kiss your partner, and just be yourself.  I want to capture the true, raw, essence of you and your family.  Life is constantly changing and moments are flying by.  Photographs give us the ability to have time stand still.  There is no greater gift than that. 

Welcome

CAPTURING the "real"

about

01. My MISSION

Hi, I'm Rachel!  I am a wedding, family, and newborn photographer serving the Fox Cities area! Photography has always been a passion of mine.  I love the nostalgia photographs bring, and how they capture moments that could otherwise be forgotten.  Most of my clients become great friends, and I love all the new people this business allows me to meet!

03. styling help

Being a mother myself, I know how some of the most important moments are the quiet ones that go on daily.  These are the moments you want to remember, and those are the moments I hope to capture for you.  From your child's toothless grin, to the way their nose scrunches up when they smile.  Photographs allow us to preserve a memory forever.  Whether it be the birth of your first child, or the day you say I DO, my mission is to document the true essence of what makes you, YOU!

my favorite things

Being a mom is my favorite job in the world.  I have 2 amazing boys. Gavin is 11, and Dylan is 8.  They are so much fun and keep me very busy! Both are avid soccer players, so tournaments take up most of my weekends. My husband Derek is my rock and best friend.  He is so supportive of me and is the best dad in the world.  We love vacationing, and Hawaii is our absolute favorite place!  Without Jesus as my center, I'd be a mess.  Most days I'm drinking a cup of coffee, and watching Netflix while editing.

EARTH TONES & TEXTURE

Clothing is the one thing that stresses people out the most when planning their photo session. Bringing in different colors and textures is so important, and the styling site I work with will help you do just that!  Once you book your session with me, I will send you the link with my access code, and you will go in and fill out a short questionnaire about your overall style preference and the ages and gender of everyone in your family.  From there, you will be given tons of options that will dress your family from head to toe for your session.  It's amazing and STRESS FREE!  I also have a full client closet available to use for any session!

"Rachel was so carefree and fun and really made our photo session relaxed.  Her styling site was SO helpful and gave us the look we wanted. We even were able to bring the newest member of our family - our golden doodle - out at the end for some pictures!  It was perfect! I recommend Rachel to everyone I know!"

"We first met Rachel when I was pregnant with our triplets. Our maternity photos were so amazing, we knew we had to go back for their newborn photos! We have also gone to Rachel several more times for family photos, and we are always so amazed at how beautiful our pictures turn out and how Rachel is able to uniquely capture each of our triplets personalities so perfectly! We can't wait to see all the pictures Rachel continues to capture for us through the years as our kids grow!"

Rachel is one of the best when it comes to photographers in Wisconsin. As our family has grown, she has been there every step of the way. From a breathtaking Maternity shoot, to our Fresh 48 session at the hospital, to a Full Newborn session at 10 days old, she has been a wonder to work with; she truly is a baby whisper. Rachel took time to style all of our shots, which I feel is so important. She worked really hard to shoot in only the best weather conditions, and she made everyone feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. We are so thrilled to share all our most precious moments with her. We can't wait for more Milestone and Family sessions in the future with her!
