Hello, I’m your Folly Beach Family Photographer and I call my type of photography “colorful, moody, with a storytelling vibe” . I aim to get not only the posed portraits but also the wonderful in-between moments that pair perfectly with them. It’s my goal that you will not only get artwork for your walls but it will accurately depict your family. 

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
– Paul Caponigro

"Our family was traveling to the area on vacation and wanted extended family photos. Our sessions couldn't have gone smoother and she came with ideas for locations. The final product was just what we had hoped for. These photos will definitely be cherished."


I offer different packages all which include digital files and options to print with me, or print yourself. All families are welcome here.

"Rachel's photos are AMAZING. They truly capture the essence and personality of each person in the photos and make fabulous use of the landscape around us to enhance the photos. Rachel is such a calming presence and you never know what she's captured until you see the final product and are amazed each time!"
