 I am based in Ottawa, ON and specialize in newborns, portrait and wedding photography. If capturing beautiful memories is important to you, then you’re in the right place! 

Let me guess…You’ve been searching for the right photographer for a while now, one that makes you feel comfortable and natural and can capture you in your truest element and can also guide you on what to wear (because let's be serious, outfit inspiration is hard!).

Hello and    welcome!

Whether you are looking to capture lasting memories of your sweet family, your growing baby bump, those precious first few weeks with your newborn or to capture every detail of the wedding you’ve been planning since you were little, I can help you preserve each and every aspect of your most important moments. 

I understand that memories are fleeting and every family and couple is unique. Not just any photographer can photograph you. You want someone who understands what you are all about. 

If you are looking for timeless images that you can cherish for a lifetime, then I’m your girl! I am ready to photograph you!

Hello and welcome!

my name is Rachael!

hey beautiful,

I'm a wife to a loving husband and a thankful mama to three little blonde, blue eyed boys and three fur babies. We live in the outskirts of Ottawa where they can all run free. I’m always up for an adventure and love travel, a good party, great food (eating, though not so much cooking), sunsets and long talks with friends. My babies are my greatest inspiration and I find such beauty in the ins and outs of my happy little life with them. And of course, I try to photograph every delightful moment of it...

If you're reading this, you are either looking for a photographer or just browsing some of my work and the gorgeous clients that I have had the privilege of working with!

My passions are these: creativity, people, and storytelling. And in photography, I happened to find the perfect marriage of those things. I want my photos to feel beautiful, artistic, and genuine, inspired by my clients personalities and love for each other.  My style is clean, bright and classic. I love to keep my sessions relaxed, fun filled, real and authentic! I love soft, beautiful natural light and genuine smiles. I am so glad you stopped by and I hope that our paths cross soon!

After becoming a mama, I found myself feeling so desperate to cling onto those fleeting little moments in time, making them mine forever, but sadly that’s not how it works so I decided to pick up a camera and learn my way around that big, clunky thing and the rest is history.

steph, bride

"Rachael blew my expectations out of the water! She was so professional and very knowledgeable! She managed to round up and handle all the groomsmen (which can be very tricky!) like a pro. Not to mention how AMAZING the photos turned out! Just like 99% of all women/brides, I hate myself in photos... but I was so overjoyed with how I and everyone else looked in the wedding photos. She really captured everyone at their very best."

Leslie, bride

"Rachael photographed our wedding and we could not be happier! Not only is she incredibly talented and professional, but she makes you feel completely comfortable as well. Having her in the bridal suite while getting ready felt just like having another friend or family member there. She captured all of those 'in-between' moments, not just the posed ones. Her eye and the way she captures the light is just amazing, so trust her when she says 'I have an idea..!"
