Some Favorites from 2012

Here are a few of my favorite portraits from this last year…shots that made me linger a little longer..

Not going to lie, 2012 has been a transitional year. It has been full of really really great moments and some challenging ones. I guess that is bound to happen when it’s a year you move.

This year some of my photographic goals include shooting WAY MORE personal work. I really slacked in this area in 2012. I am going to put down my phone and pick up my film cameras and shoot my own life. I think it’s deserving.

I also am excited to announce some changes to my pricing which will include some new Southern California only rates for my wedding clients. I will still be available for travel (and y’all know I LOVE to travel) but clients having me shoot close to home are worthy of some perks. So if you have inquired about having me shoot your wedding in 2013 and want to take a look at some of my new options, feel free to email me (

I really really want to thank all of my amazing and loyal clients AND friends and family for supporting me as a photographer and mother. It is a constant evolution of adjusting and changing to meet the needs of my family and my desires as a creative. I am going to be starting some new blog posts dedicated to being a working mother. I have so many thoughts running through my mind and sharing I know would help me and hopefully some of you dealing with similar life challenges.

I just feel blessed. Really really blessed.

Happy New Year everyone!

  2. Happy New Year Rachel! I’ve followed you since Creative Live and was fortunate enough to meet you in 2012. I found you as genuine and awesome in person as you project online. Your success is worthy of your hard work, creative drive and overall “realness.” Continued success in 2013!


  3. Rachel, these images are stunning. You are oh so talented. And seeing the images of Maja and me made me cry. I love it so much. Thank you for capturing our special bond. Also, where did my baby go? *Sigh. xo


  4. Aloha Rachel, I just wanted to let you know that I love your work… It is beautiful and intimate. Ever since you shot my photos last summer, I have continued looking at your work and always am amazed at the images you capture. It was nice connecting with you briefly for my pre-wedding nervous photo shoot. You are a kind and genuine person whom I am happy to have known. love, jess
