PHILOSOPHY

Taking family photos, for me, is purposeful and personal. I lost my father recently, and the photos that we have together are some of my most cherished possessions. The most joyful memories would normally exist in a memory are soon to be captured beautifully for your family to cherish for generations. Having a masters degree in elementary education with a nannying background allows me to create gorgeous photos while engaging with your children and giving the whole family clear and confident posing direction. I look forward to meeting your family!

Our studio is located in Elk Grove Village, IL. We provide services all over Chicagoland.

Rachel did our family portraits and they were fantastically done and so quick! She was able to get so many smiles from my son that were so natural. There were so many great shots I had trouble deciding which to use!

"Rachel did a fantastic job catching those ranges of emotions from all the little ones.."

Rachel took our family photos for us and with our extended family. She prepared us ahead of time with ideas for things to bring to keep kids entertained and to keep the their attention while shooting. In the end, kids are going to be how they are going to be, and Rachel did a fantastic job catching those ranges of emotions from all the little ones- tears, fear, and pure joy. The shots are truly spot on for our normal day-to-day rollercoaster. Parents cherish these moments, and I am so pleased to now have them captured in awesome photos.

"Rachel got our crying son to briefly part his lips and smile for the photos.."

Thank you for for capturing the happiness of our lives. You’ve made such a special day even better. Both myself and my husband’s family enjoyed working with you so much. I’m also so impressed that you got our crying son to briefly part his lips and smile for the photos! Lol. You are simply amazing. Thank you so much Rachel! Our photos are absolutely beautiful.
