Baby Alden

Mark and Amy Beth welcomed their first baby, Alden, into the world! Travis and I have been friends with these two for years, even before we were married, so I was absolutely thrilled to capture Alden during the first week of his life. Their nursey has a woodland theme, complete with a custom fishing rod mobile that Mark and Amy Beth made. Everything about this little family is absolutely precious, and their home is so cozy and welcoming. I can’t image Alden coming into a better family or place to live.

Baby Jack in Big New York

Shooting a couple’s wedding is the most special day I’ll ever capture for them…until they have a baby. Amanda and Damien had the most fabulous wedding several years ago in Atlanta. They’ve since moved to the big city and live on the Upper West Side in Manhattan. Last month, I traveled to New York for Jack’s one month session! It was so exciting to meet him and be reunited with this super special couple! Girls-just wait until you see how cute and fabulous their place is! One photo of the nursery has already been re-grammed by The Bump! I hope you enjoy this shoot as much as I did!!

Erin and Stan’s Engagement

Erin and Stan are not your stereotypical Ivy-Leaguers. They’re better. And though they may enjoy a good play or seersucker pant, their easy-going, kind nature and love for one another is what you immediately notice. Erin and I went to high school in the small town of Carmi, Illinois, so I was thrilled to reconnect with her and meet her new fiance  in Central Park (at golden hour!) for their engagement shoot. We even snuck in the Natural History Museum after hours for a photo in front of the dinosaurs. So cool. I hope you love the photos as much as Stan loves for Yale!  I can’t wait wait for their wedding next year! Erin will be the most beautiful bride!rachelonealphotography_family_newyork001rachelonealphotography_family_newyork002rachelonealphotography_family_newyork003rachelonealphotography_family_newyork004rachelonealphotography_family_newyork005rachelonealphotography_family_newyork006rachelonealphotography_family_newyork007arachelonealphotography_family_newyork008rachelonealphotography_family_newyork009rachelonealphotography_family_newyork010rachelonealphotography_family_newyork011

Brooklyn Family Session

I’ve known of Kajal for years, but I just got to meet her for the first time last week in New York City. I’ve done shoots in Atlanta for her sister, Sonal, and friend Nandita, for the last five years, so I was thrilled to finally get to meet Kajal in person. As I hopped off the subway in Park Slope, Brooklyn, I found her gorgeous family in a colorful and stylish home, full of life and vivacity. Right away, the kids wanted to show me their room, and we bonded over stuffed animals and toy trains. From there, we had some fun in the park, just a block from their house. The youngest, Ravi, was very into his mom’s new belly and loved talking to the baby inside! I had such a great time on this shoot, and I can’t wait to go back to the big city to see them again and meet their new addition!

Seniors 2015

I love doing senior photoshoots, and working with this group was an absolutely blast! They are my senior reps for 2015-2016, and as you can see below, we did a jam session in the park for our theme. I wanted to use a real group of friends so that the love, laughter and warmth was authentic, and that’s just what we got with them. They’re all on a rowing team together, so the session flowed so naturally. Some of them have been friends for years, and I love how happy and comfortable they all look toghether. I hope you enjoy these fun shots as much as I do!
