Rebecca's personal approach makes the experience much~ much more than just a 'photography session'.

I could not have dreamed up the creativity that came through in the pictures she gave us. 

She is so very sweet! She's like family! We will continue to use her for all of our family photography needs.

Rebecca has a gift of revealing natural beauty in all kinds of environments.

one of her photos was used for the cover of a magazine!

We will be using Rebecca’s services as our family grows for years to come.  

Rebecca has been our family photographer for the last eight years.

She truly captures each individual's spirit in her photographs, by making you so comfortable in front of the camera, that you simply open up.

My walls are full with precious moments of my family's history 

Our family loves Rebecca! She's done portraits of our family, high school seniors, college graduations, LinkedIn head-shots, and our daughter’s wedding.

her poses are creative, fun, and imaginative, often seeing things through her lens an amateur couldn’t think of.   

rebecca has been capturing memories of our family through every major event in our lives.

Her personality makes the experience so special, add that to her incredible skill and you really can’t ask for more.  

She will have you smiling and feeling beautiful in every way.

Rebecca's warm, friendly personality immediately told us that we wanted to work with her.

She has an artistic eye and is very talented at working with any landscape and producing gorgeous images.
