Meet Rachel

Born and bred Philly girl. Traveled the world, but always knew Philly was my home. In fact, we recently renovated and moved our family into my childhood home in Graduate Hospital, and intend on staying in this house until one of our kids kicks us out to raise their family in it.

One of my favorite things has always been to look through my mom’s old photo albums. They give me such a feeling of connection with my family. It’s also a good reminder that moms (& dads) should be in the picture. As cute as I was as a kid, what I really want to see is my folks when they were new parents!

When I’m not working with a camera in hand, I’m running around with my three amazing, crazy kids, and my awesome hubby if he’s lucky. And when I’m not with them, I’m teaching prenatal yoga at Mama’s Wellness Joint. And when I’m not doing any of those things… I’m maybe sleeping, but you can imagine that doesn’t happen often. No two days look the same for me, and while I’ve never known tired like this I’ve also never been happier.

I found my love for photography studying film in Italy. Found my love for portraiture when a friend admitted that my maternity photos of her finally made her feel good about her changing body. I love what I do so much that I was still running after toddlers, camera in hand, through all of my pregnancies up to the week before I went into labor!

Now that you know a little about me, please be in touch to tell me about you, your family, and how I can help to tell your story!
