My mission as a Melbourne
family photographer


To help mothers see how loved they are—and to keep the feeling going with daily reminders of beautiful art adorning their homes

I’M RACHEL  

it's so lovely to meet you

Photography is in my DNA. My grandfather was an avid amateur film photographer, and—to this day—a small box of his photographs remains one of my most treasured possessions.

To hold in my hands the art he created generations ago—and to steal a peek into the wondrous world of my mother as a child—is such a precious gift. I love that my work as a family and maternity photographer allows me to give that same coveted gift to mothers and their children (and, one day, their children’s children).

While I’ve been shooting on film on and off for a decade, I still feel something within me come alive every time I pick up a film camera. It allows me the ability to slow time. To see modern motherhood through an age-old artform. To capture heart-warming connections in the most mesmerizing tones. To render mums speechless when they hold my photos in their hands and finally see what the world has always known: the fact that they are loved beyond measure.



If you ask me, there is nothing more powerful than the purity of your love, suspended in time via this timeless artform.

my inspiration:

01

ancestry

Enamored with all things French—my Mother's family heritage, including vintage antiques, macarons and renovated chateaus

02

history

Period cottages sitting pretty on rolling hills speak straight to my soul

03

nature

Find me on fresh-air walks with my family and our sweet-natured golden retriever, Hugo

04

meal

Literally anything Mediterranean + a glass of sparkling. 

05

human

My family. My everything, 

06

part of my job

That moment at the end of a session when the light gives the softest sunset hues. The children are playing happily and everyone is relaxed and enjoying the moment -  these seconds of unfolding joy make for the dreamiest of photos.

Babyhood passes in a blink of an eye. Children grow quickly. Smiles slip through your fingers. 

BUT WITH FINE-ART FILM PHOTOGRAPHY, THE EMOTIONS BEHIND EVERY MOMENT CAN STAY WITH YOU FOR A LIFETIME.
