Hi! I’m Rachael. I’m a thirty-something lifelong East Tennesseean. My husband, Derek and I have been married for fifteen years and we have two amazing boys. As a young girl, all it took was one click of the shutter on my dad’s old SLR camera and that was it. I was hooked. From that first image I created as a child to the professional photographer I am today, my love for documenting my family’s history has only gotten stronger. And becoming a mother has made me fiercely passionate about preserving the precious time of my children’s youth in photo form. It’s this love and passion that I bring to every session. Whether it’s your baby’s first days or your annual family portrait, I’m here to make sure your memories will be preserved for future generations to cherish. I want you to be able to look at your images and feel all the joy and love the same way you did on the day they were taken.
