The Portrait Experience

Let’s Begin with the End in Mind, as you start the planning for your portrait session.  Before any images are created, you need a plan for where you want your images to be displayed.  Rachael Venema Photography assists you through every step of the process to make your experience as easy and smooth as possible.   Knowing how you want your portraits displayed helps me create the images needed for the perfect wall gallery or a beautiful heirloom album for you to display in your home.

I place my focus not only on creating beautiful portraits of your family, but I also want you to enjoy the process and have an enjoyable experience throughout the process! I believe that when I create your family portraits, I am creating a piece of your family’s history. Your family’s memories that will never fade, because you have the images to look back on.  My goal is for you to have them forever… for you and your generations to enjoy.  

Planning Your Portraits

We begin with a consultation where every detail is planned out, to bring out the very best in your family.  So you don’t have to stress about a thing.

Fun Family Memories

Your session will be a full of fun memories and time to just enjoy being together.  Just sit back and relax and let me take care of the details.

Your Heirloom Art

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your family’s beautiful images displayed in your home for your family to enjoy each and every day.

All About You

I will work with you and your family each step of the way. With booking the session, to guiding you with what to wear, to picking a location that best suits your family’s look and personality, all the way to the selection/ordering appointment and the delivery of your finished art for your home.

Depending on your type of session, I offer in-studio sessions for maternity, newborns and small children, as well as, outdoor on-location sessions for maternity, children and families.

Taking pictures with Rachael has been enjoyable, exciting, and fun! Truly the best experience! She held our hand through every detail from choosing a location, colors of our outfits, props and poses, choosing a package, and choosing pictures for an album. This has been such a positive and memorable experience and we look forward to our next session!
