THE PROCESS

1

BOOKING

Simply click on the link below to fill out details. You'll then receive a Proposal that shows your package options where you can make your selections, add in your details and share your preferred dates.

From there, you will need to sign the Contract and pay the 50% Retainer fee to confirm your session.

2

PLANNING

I'll follow up with my available dates to confirm and you'll be set! You'll receive guides on what to wear, how to prep your home if needed and what to expect from your session. I'll make sure to send you a heads-up reminder for your session day and open up for any last minute questions.

3

SESSION

It's here! I'll make sure the session runs as smoothly as possible especially if you have new babes or young kiddos present. I also try not to limit our time and let the young ones determine the amount of time we need. We'll plan for any breaks (feedings, water, etc.)

Sessions can be anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

4

Delivery

You'll receive your final images within 3 weeks of our session. I know you'll be anxious to see them and I promise it'll be worth the wait.

You'll receive gallery access through an email link where you create an account and password to access the gallery.

The Gallery can then be shared, downloaded and you can purchase prints from your session.

5

FOllow-up

After a week, I will follow up and make sure you were able to get your final images downloaded. Here you can also ask questions about custom printed products you'd love to display in your home.

I'll also ask if you wouldn't mind sharing any kind words about our session and working with me.

Kind Words

Working with Rachel Lea for our family's fall photos was a dream. I was nervous because I usually ask good friends or family to take our photos, but that's what Rachel felt like instantly - a good friend of the family, doing her best to make us all look great. We got so many images to cherish, share, and frame.

I will absolutely hire her again!

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is a typical session?

I prefer not to have a hard stop on my sessions. I make sure that we have captured a variety of shots and don't miss any candid moments.

Most sessions last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. Newborn sessions usually need to take breaks for feeding or changing so expect those to last a bit longer. Moody teens can be on the shorter time frame.

We are so uncomfortable in front of a camera…help!

Ah, this is a very common feeling. I like spending the first couple of minutes chatting, hearing about your life & stories and getting settled. I typically start with simple shots of you looking at the camera to get your jitters out and then it’s creative time. If we get stuck, I have a handy little app that I customize inspiration for each session. There might be some prompts I ask of you but this will result in authentic, emotional images that you will cherish.

What about wardrobe or location decisions?

I will share guides on what to wear and suggestions for wardrobe. I always want to make sure you are comfortable and we select outfits that coordinate with your session location and the time of year. We'll also make sure to have a great location for you and your family whether it's in your own home or at your favorite park.

What is a Personal Use License and Print License?

A Personal Use License allows you to use the images for personal use only ie. social media sharing, printing images for your home, and sharing with others. No images can be used commercially for websites, blogging or business related end uses.

A Print License is also included with your final downloads which allows you to print your images through your choice of printers. I do highly recommend if you are printing at a large scale (11x14 or larger) that you print through me to ensure archival print quality and colors are produced at a higher quality than consumer print labs.

I am ready to book, what is the next step?
