As a Mom herself, she works very well with kids….
I have had 2 photo sessions with Rachel now, and I plan to have many more. She worked with me to prepare for the shoot so that I would be ready on the day of the shoot. As a mom herself, Rachel is so sweet with my daughter and works very well with kids. Her artistic vision and attention to detail has led to some amazing photographs of my family. In fact, I have never received as many compliments on our family photos as I have with Rachel Manning Photography! I highly recommend her for your next photography session!
Exceeded my expectations
Rachel is a stunning photographer when capturing natural, intimate moments between couples and families rather than overly posed subjects. Working with multiple subjects including toddlers and babies it can be challenging to capture everyone at the right moment but Rachel did it countless times! It was a joy working with her to celebrate my pregnancy and arrival of our new baby girl into our family. She took time to share her ideas via Pinterest and collaborate with me to make sure I got the photos I wanted and offered various location ideas. She exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be more pleased with the beautiful photos she took for us. I know I will be using her again as our family grows.
I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful boudoir portraits! You made me feel so at ease, had a ton of creative styling ideas and are super easy to work with! The photos are stunning and have your unique and warm photographic style. This investment will be cherished for years to come! You will forever be our family photographer as well.
Fresh 48: Sweet & joyful photos
Hospital rooms can sometimes feel sterile and medical, but Rachel captured pictures of my newborn baby that were joyful and sweet. I'm so glad I have these professional photos of my family at this very important milestone in our lives, the birth of my son. The grandparents are going to be so happy to receive these high quality images as a present from us. Rachel is kind, considerate, talented, and I love her style!
Attracted to her real-life style
Rachel was great! She came into our home and took the most amazing photos. I was attracted to her "real life" style. She helped capture my family's new life in our new home with our new baby. It meant a lot to us. She also made an amazing slide show out of our photos with music and everything! I will be hiring her again for our next set of family photos!
The most natural photographer…..
Rachel is one of the most natural photographers I have ever met. She photographed my 18 month old son earlier this year, and beautifully captured his adventurous spirit. I was so happy with those photos I asked her to take some portraits of my husband and I, and the results were stunning. The light, the location, her intuition...I cannot speak highly enough of her work. In both instances I thoroughly enjoyed spending the afternoon with her. She is never formulaic, and gives just enough direction.
An eye for artful imagery
To truly be a successful photographer, you have to know when the moment is right to take great pictures. When you're trying to photograph babies and children, that moment can take quite a bit more patience, and that's what we really love about Rachel. She not only has the eye for artful imagery, she knows you've got to take the time and energy to hold out (or sometimes coax out!) those great moments. Rachel is a natural around kids and also guides us adults beautifully too! The photos Rachel took of our family capture so much. I relive the feelings I felt that day being with our newborn every time I see them. Thank you, Rachel!
Rachel is an extraordinary photographer. She is very professional and a joy to work with. She is great with kids, she knows tricks to get their attention and make them smile. She knows about beautiful locations in which to shoot photos and creates stunning visual images. She has the ability to capture a moment, a feeling, and to tell a story. Rachel is truly an artist. I highly recommend her. The photos that she has taken of myself and my daughters are some of my favorites. The images are priceless.
