Hey there!! Welcome here!

I’m Raquel!

Wife, friend, sister, and daughter first. Photographer second.

I bought my first “fancy” camera 12 years ago and dreamed of doing just this…writing a bio for my very own photography business. In the meantime I kept shooting, upgraded my gear a couple times, and now I’m running out of family members to take pictures of!

And so here we are! I am so excited to take your photos!

I love capturing the little everyday moments - the meticulous coffee routine or the ice cream date with a friend you haven’t seen in a while. And I think whatever stage you’re in, you have a story and I want to document your real, wild, precious life!

I’ve got a sweet husband, Caleb, and he has been my biggest supporter. We’re almost at 3 years of marriage already and we love afternoons of disc golf, daily lattes, and road tripping back and forth across the country listening to Johnnyswim.

A few fun facts about me:

- I seriously debated starting a sewing company instead. I love any creative hobby and I think “I could make that” in pretty much any store I go to.

- Two summers ago I cycled across Canada with my family. Yep. It was as crazy as it sounds.

- Our wedding party had 22 people! We just love people!

- My husband and I are moving to Northern Thailand as church planters. I’m excited to see how I can use photography on the other side of the world to advocate with story.

Get in touch!


I’m here to document your real life, whether that’s a Tuesday morning around the kitchen table, a Friday evening date night, or a lazy Saturday cuddling your newborn.

I love nostalgic and warm images. I hope they can be momentos of this time in your life that one day your grandkids can flip through and smile at. I want you to be totally free to be yourself and capture you as you really are.

Let’s connect and start making those memories tangible!

All sessions start at $200 and include an hour of shooting and an online gallery of images. If you have an idea for a shoot or are interested in something outside of the options below just send me a message and we can dream something up!
