About

Hello there!
As a wife and mother, my son and daughter are my muses (ages 9 and 12). 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, which encompasses what I hold most dear to my heart. 
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 light, authenticity, and magic moments.  I thrive on documenting the unforgettable stories and the remarkable love of San Diego families in a fresh and relaxed way.
It is my passion to capture the beauty of your life in a frame by bringing into focus what is truly precious in life.  I am committed to preserving memories that can be seen, touched, and felt, every day as you relive them on your walls, in your hands, and in your heart.  As a Mother, this is the season of my life too and why family photography is in my heart.
I am based in San Diego.  Please use my contact form or email rachel@rachelmanningphotography.com to get in touch. If you would like an outstanding custom photography experience 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 work with you and photograph your family.

P.S. A few fun facts about me personally:  I think dogs are the greatest creatures on this earth and I have a huge soft spot for rescue dogs. Coronado Beach is my happy place.  Although I’ve been blessed to call San Diego my home all my life, I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and I adore planning getaways and road trips for my family.
