Our seniors....

The senior experience

I've been where you are now. You've been anxiously, yet excitedly counting down the days until graduation. You've put in years of hard work and made so many amazing memories along the way. Your photography experience should embody all of the highlights from the past four years!

My number one priority as your Charlottesville senior photographer is to capture your authentic self during such an exciting season of your life. Your photos will be filled with memories of some of the best years of your life for you to look back on for years to come. I promise to be your cheerleader, give you plenty of guidance, and have fun with you along the way! Check out my process below and send me a note below to start the photo process! Talk to you soon!

Congratulations on graduating! This is a huge milestone accomplishment, and deserves to be celebrated! 

Once you inquire I will go over all of your package options with you to see what fits best! I offer three main packages to keep it simple, with the ability for  add-ons to make your session truly yours.

01. let's chat 

WooHoo! We have chatted, are a great fit, and you've selected your senior experience.

Dates are first come, first served, and I take a limited amount of seniors each season. As a result, I highly recommend booking with me as soon as you know the season you are wanting your session to be in. It is not unusual for seniors to reserve their date 3-12 months before their graduation. 


02. Save the date

This is where the fun begins! Before your session I will send you everything you need to know to be totally prepared. You will receive a style guide along with one-on-one help curating the perfect outfit!

If you are a high school senior we will discuss the best location for your senior photos, and if you are a college senior we will make a list of all of the must-hit spots around campus!

03. session prep!

Your session is here! I recommend that you arrive to your session 15 minutes early so you can do any last minute lint rolling and make up checks. 

I will guide you through the entire session, giving you direction on poses and prompts to keep you laughing and having fun. I am a big fan of creating movement in my posing to avoid any stiffness and kick any awkward feelings to the curb! 

04. picture time!

Within 48 hours of your senior session you will receive a few sneak peaks to hold over your excitement! Within 3 weeks of your session you will receive an email with your full gallery. 

Your gallery is directly linked to a professional print shop, where you can directly buy the highest quality prints directly from your gallery to be delivered to your doorstep. (Pro tip: parents and grandparents LOVE this!)

Rachel has a great aesthetic sense and she will make sure you get your best angles!


Rachel is super sweet and she will make your session so easy going! I recently had a grad session with her and she knows all the nice poses and will make you feel super comfortable doing them. I just received my gallery and all of the photos turned out so beautiful. Rachel has a great aesthetic sense and she will make sure you get your best angles!

I love the way my photos came out, and I'll cherish them and the experience forever!


Rachel took my senior grad pictures, and it was such a great experience! Before even booking my session, she was super patient and answered every question I had. I didn't know what to expect when my session came, but Rachel made me feel so comfortable once we started. She guided me with poses and just made everything so easy. She is so sweet, and I loved that we were able to have small conversations in between taking photos. If you're looking for a photographer, definitely choose Rachel!

My daughter looked so natural and at ease


Rachel did a great job with my daughter's senior portraits. Rachel suggested a beautiful location and coached my daughter through the poses so she looked natural and at ease. The photos are beautiful and we have a huge variety of poses and locations to choose from. Thank you Rachel!
