Hey, It's Rae!

I started my photography journey with the sole purpose of taking better photos of my babies. After the birth of my first son, I quickly learned just how fast they grow up. I remember looking through newborn pictures and finding one with his fist held high in the air like he was a champion- a frequent mannerism I loved. I showed it to my husband and said, "He doesn't do this anymore." My husband responded, "There was a time he did that for the last time." It was in that moment I truly understood the value of a photograph. Children change so quickly. Their little quirks are here today and gone tomorrow- and what you have left are the images and videos to remember those fleeting moments.

I want nothing more than to capture those memories for you. When you look back on these images years later, I don't want you to just see them- I want you to feel them. Life offers so many different seasons and it is always an honor when people choose me to tell their story.

I am an Ohio native and enjoy hiking local areas on the weekends with my loving, supportive husband, Nick and our two boys. The three of them, along with my passion for photography, have tricked me into loving the great outdoors. We reside in Mentor, Ohio with our dog, Olive, and cat, Rutabaga (Rue).

“Rae makes you feel comfortable so that you can just be yourself while she captures real and raw moments. Her editing and style are beautiful and she is helpful with suggesting poses that don't make you feel just that- "posed"- but that look natural and candid. She caught the most gorgeous sunset on cameras for our maternity shoot and the results blew us away. My husband and I love how our shoots have turned out and plan on using her in the future to capture our growing family!”
