Your Family Photography

I never truly understood the struggle of getting ready for family photos until I became a mom. Getting everyone dressed, and yourself feeling picture worthy, all while trying to get there on time. You snapped at your spouse because of the pressure, he hates getting family photos done anyway. A story we all know too well. 

My goal with my family photography is help you leave stress at the door and just enjoy being together. I work hard to capture the moments in-between the probable tantrums. Allow the kids to enjoy the experience and foster the love you have for one another to shine through the camera.

I accomplish this by allowing your kids to run the session. I maintain a nice structure, and make sure we get the photos we need, but allow your littles to have moments of sitting and smiling, and also just interacting with you and the world around them. It makes for some gorgeous and natural images, happy parents who don't have to feel stressed about not getting the perfect smile, and happy kids.



Let's create some works of art - of your gorgeous family. 

Fill out the contact form below to reach out and say HELLO. 

Tell me anything and everything that you want me to know about the moments you'd like to have captured.

I will get back with you within 1 business day to chat about your dream session for you and your family. 

1. Say Hello

2. Planning your session

When I reach out to plan your session with you. We will go through some different options as far as collections go and iron out what you are wanting to capture and who is involved. 

After deciding on a collection, we will figure out the perfect location. I have a plethora of gorgeous options to pick from. 

We generally shoot a few hours before sunset to get that golden glow, so it may mess-up some sleep schedules with your littles, but trust me it is worth it.

Making that pre-session stress melt away is my specialty. 

You can rest in knowing that I know exactly how to pose you and your family, and how to bring out all the fun and love within the heart of your family.  

Your littles will have so much fun - all while getting those beautiful photographs you want.  

We start with a few sitting, posed, and smiling photos. After a few of those we let your littles explore and do some family activities. This is how I get your family's authentic self to shine through the camera. 

3. The session

You can expect a sneak peek to be posted online within 48 hours of your session. 

I love to do this so you can get an idea of the beautiful memories we created, and to hold you over until your full gallery returns. 

Your full gallery will be in your inbox within two weeks. 

4. After our session

You can quit checking your email three times per day - The moment you have been waiting for - your images arrive in your inbox!

You will receive the full gallery in your inbox to favorite and pick which photographs you want to download. I offer collections with 5 images, 15 images, and then the full gallery.

You will receive a download link to download your favorites, and you can either take those to print anywhere - or print any image in your gallery through our print shop.  Taking the hassle out of printing, they arrive at your home and all you have to do is put them in your frames.

Say Hello


I LOVE THEM. They capture US and that's so important that they are REAL. Thank you for capturing how we really are together and making this session so memorable.

ā€œIā€™m not one for having photos taken..ā€ was what I said before Rachel took photos of my partner and I. Her photos came out great and made us both feel awesome about ourselves. Not only were the photos great, but she was even better. Not once did either of us experience any awkward moments. HIGHLY recommend Rogue State Photography!"
