About Me

Hi there!  I’m Rachel.   Thank you for stopping by and spending a bit of time getting to know me!

The important stuff: I’m a mom to 2 adorable munchkins, a wife to a pretty funny guy, and a social worker specializing in family building by day.  I love to sing and write but I can’t dance to save my life.  I can never manage to stay on top of the laundry and my daughter has been known to wear mismatched socks on more than one occasion.  I get most of my news from the internet but can recite just about any episode of Sophia the First, Super Why or Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.

After starting our life as a family back in MA, we recently relocated to the Raleigh, NC area.  I’m excited to explore and enjoy all that NC has to offer!

Photography is where my creativity gets to shine, where my love for connecting with people and studying and documenting their interactions with one another takes shape.  I believe that photographs allow us to capture a part of our stories that words don’t do justice.  I often look back over photos of my own children and find myself drawn to the ones that evoke a specific memory, whether it be the fact that my son was crying that day because he didn’t want to wear pants, or where my daughter made up words to yet another song while she danced across the living room in her princess dress, the photographs take me right back to that moment in time and allow me to remember it all, from the sounds to the pride to the laughter at the utter chaos that is often our everyday life.

That’s what I hope to do for you.  I want to capture your family, your child, your life, in a way that takes you back and allows you to remember and re-live those moments you never want to forget.

Thank you for considering me to document your todays for all of your tomorrows.

If you’re located in the Raleigh NC area, let’s connect!
