Child portraits & cake smashes
est 2018

I aim to capture your kiddos with their genuine expressions whether that be in an hysterical laughter or a stubborn pouty face. After all, every child has such a unique personality and I love them all.  

While I have a strong passion for  cake smashes  because of their party planning nature, I still adore capturing little ones fresh to the world  and watching them as they grow. There is no age limit here. 

As a mom of almost 8 years now, I understand and appreciate all the nuances of parenthood. The beginnings, the milestones, and celebrations.  I can handle the chaos and circles little ones dance around us while simultaneously singing baby shark to get the baby to giggle.  Patience is the key, but the work is so worth it. 

hey! glad you're here!
i'm Rachel.
