About

Hello there!  As a wife and mother, my son and daughter are my muses (ages 6 and 9). They are my favorite subjects, my sweetest inspiration and by far, my greatest accomplishment in this life. My husband is an amazing Dad and incredibly supportive husband.  These three humans + our two puppies are my whole world, and they complete me.  Meet my sweet family (rescue puppies included) in this amazing video created by my friend Sean Fresh.  
 
My goal as a photographer is to capture the connection between you and your loved ones.  I value emotion, light, and movement.  Sun-kissed, fun, artistic, and dreamy – these words best describe the style of imagery I create.  I never settle for average.  I seek to capture beautiful and dynamic light, authenticity, and magic moments.  I thrive on documenting the unforgettable stories and the remarkable love of ordinary people in a fresh and relaxed way.  By working with me, clients can rest assured that in addition to a fun and memorable experience during their session, their images will be printed beautifully on archival, high-quality heirloom pieces that are hand-picked by them during their in-home design session.  I am with each client from beginning to end, from choosing the best location to suit your family, choosing what to wear, planning how to document your family (a little bit is planned and posed and the rest is fun and candid), to helping to simplify the process of printing custom artwork for your home.
 
I find beauty in everyone and I believe everyone deserves to be seen.  Time is fleeting and little ones grow too fast.  It is my passion to capture the beauty of your life in a frame by bringing into focus what is really precious in this short yet sweet life.  I urge you to have your family photographed today, because your life and your loved ones matter, in the here and now.  Don’t wait too long to document your family!  
 
I appreciate that you’re here reading about me.  I am based in San Diego, but I love to travel. Please email rachelmanningphotography@gmail.com to get in touch. If you would like exceptional service, are drawn to my imagery, and want authentic images of your family in beautiful light printed for your home, I would love to hear from you.  It would be such an honor to help you freeze time and tell your story.

P.S. A few fun facts about me personally.  I love: dogs, the desert, the outdoors, sunshine, planning vacations and road trips, chocolate, indie folk, and singing karaoke (as a child of the 80’s I love singing 80’s hits).
