about Family Photojournalism

It's your reality: artfully & authentically

I get it. Real life is messy and boring sometimes. But is it really? Or is it only that you need a new lens to view it? It's my mission to create images that prove to you that your life is full of the extraordinary in the midst of the ordinary, then hand over those pictures so you can treasure them for a lifetime.

Family Photojournalism

Normal life, for real

Forget having to coordinate clothes and get everyone on board with having their pictures taken. This session is just me following you through a normal day in your family's life. No pressure allowed.

If you want stunning pictures that connect memories with feelings, look no further. This is it. 

Not a day goes by that we don’t think about those special moments...

—  Chris, Dublin

it's just what it sounds like

Day in the Life

Family photojournalism is about opening your eyes to the amazing and extraordinary that happens in your ordinary every day life. This completely unscripted and stress-free session follows you through a typical day in the life of your family, from morning routine through tuck in time, and creates intensely personal pictures that are completely unique to you.  

Day in the Life sessions typically include photography coverage beginning with your morning routine and last until the day's end and 300-350 final edited hi-res images in an online gallery with unlimited downloads. Every session also includes a gorgeous custom designed 30 page heirloom album. Because these pictures deserve a place in your home, not just on your device.

Day in the Life sessions start at $2875.

It is so hard to pick our favorites because they are all that beautiful.

Where everything comes together. The best part is, all you have to do is be yourself. As your family photojournalist, I'll see the moments and create stunning images you'll love forever.

5. Post-Session

I'll get straight to work on your images and soon you'll receive a happy email with your gallery link, download pin, and a print sale code valid for 7 days.

Sound good?

This is your family's story So

Your images will look and feel like y o u

Think about your family with all its unique quirks, personalities, dynamics, and love. Don't you wish you could have pictures that capture that in an artful and completely authentic way? That's what family photojournalism sessions do for your family. 

Your family is personal. Your pictures should be too.

Let's talk

intrigued but a bit intimidated?

How about just a slice?

Love the idea of a completely unscripted and stress-free family photojournalism session, but the thought of someone following you through your entire day makes you a bit uneasy? Ease yourself in with a Slice of Life. 

While the magic of family photojournalism thrives with the breathing room of full day coverage, there is still lots of beauty and magical images to be created in a shorter session. 

Slice of Life sessions include two consecutive hours of photography coverage and 50-75 final edited hi-res images in an online gallery with unlimited downloads. Every Slice of Life session includes a canvas print up to a 12x18. These pictures deserve a place in your home, not simply on your device.

Slice of Life sessions start at $950.

"Working with Rachel has been so amazing, just as she promised."

I don't know why I waited so long. I'm so glad I finally did it.
