BEHIND THE LENS

I'm Rachel

A whole-hearted believer in the incredible power of photographs.
Especially of family.

When I was in high school, I wanted to be a journalist. I relished the idea of telling the stories of people and places. As I neared graduation, my love for photography took over and I began my career as a photographer.

When I became a mom, I realized that the picture perfect Instagram families didn't map onto my own life. It seemed boring and inauthentic. I found that I craved authenticity and connection. I needed to know I wasn't the only one with wildness and chaos running around my house.

I picked up my camera and began to photograph it. Maybe someone else could relate.

It was then that I discovered my true passion: telling the stories of every day family experience through beautiful images. Also known as family photojournalism. A perfect blend of my journalism dreams in high school and my life as a professional photographer & mom.

Now I get to live out that passion by serving families like yours in San Jose and the Bay Area by creating artful yet authentic images you'll love forever! 

My Approach to family photojournalism

Create artful images of your family's  authentic moments in an easy-going, no pressure way

Family photojournalism is all about you doing you.

There's no need to coordinate outfits. You don't have to find time around your busy schedules. Those toys on the floor? Leave 'em! The only thing your family has to do is be yourselves. Even if the environment isn't Pinterest perfect.

Why? 

Because your real life is more beautiful than you know.
