Capture your moments

2008 2019

Growth

For over 11 years I've had the privilege to capture a bundle of joy blossom to a tween. Along the way, this girl became a big sister 3 times over: sister, a brother and another brother that never came home. Through this, her mother has become much more than just a client to me, and my goal is always to be able to find the beauty, even if in ashes, because that's what life is about. I am honored to be chronicling this family's history.

Playful Portraits

For Busy Parents

An investment worth your while

Create family portraits that are full of raw emotion. A glimpse at them will make you feel as if you are taken back in time.

My mission is to create custom photography for discerning parents that want to remember the beauty of their growing family. Serving the Greater Philadelphia region, I will not only capture authentic and organic family portraits for you; I will then design the perfect custom art for your walls and heirloom albums for your coffee table.

About The Job

Wall art transforms your house into a home, and there is not a greater masterpiece other than your family.

Your family portrait should be more than just pixels on a screen. First, we capture authentic and organic moments between you and the people you love. Then we work with the best craftsmen available to bring you museum quality wall art and heirloom albums that tell the story of your family for generations.

Jennie - "Thank You!"

We have been working with Rae for over 11 years now. She has a way of finding the joy and laughter in our young kids through her lens that we don't want to forget. Being a mom herself, Rae recognizes the importance of capturing these sweet times. She is a perfectionist in every sense of the word. We have never been disappointed. We are confident that Rae offers the highest quality products that are available. There is nothing in our home more valuable to us than the photographs on our walls. Thank you, Rae!

Christie - "LOVE THESE!"

What an amazing photographer! Rae took pictures of our 6 month old in our home and we absolutely love the results. She was so great with our baby and you could tell she really loves kids. She has a laid back style that makes you feel really comfortable around the camera. All of her products are top notch as well, the only hard part is deciding what you want (which she helps you with anyway so it's not hard, more exciting.. 🙂 ) We can't recommend Rae enough, you won't regret it!

Helen - "Amazing!"

Rae is amazing. I have had several sessions with her and without fail each time, she manages to capture these beautiful photos of my crazy kiddos that are perfectly and authentically them. [My kids] have so much fun that they forget that they are having their photos taken. She's incredibly talented but also really down-to-earth and easy to work with. I also recently purchased an album with her as well and it came out beautifully. Her sessions and photos are well worth the investment.

We meet each client in person to ensure that you are the first to see your images. We work together to decide on the appropriate size for your wall art, and we put the rest of your favorites in your album. Typically, we wait until everything is delivered and wall art is installed on your wall before we blog a session; we do this to show everyone the lovely pieces we created for you and your home. This is why you might see a fall session in the winter... or a winter session in the spring... or a... well, you get the point. Regardless, we hope you enjoy some of our recent work!
