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.

You should enjoy the experience of having your family portraits done.  Your session begins with what matters most – spending time with your family.  I want to document this time in your family’s life. Your family’s memories that will never fade, because you will have the images to look back on.  My goal is for you to have them forever… for you and your family to enjoy in your home.

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.

Love What You’ve Seen So Far?

More than I could have expected


Rachael Venema Photography provides more service than I could have expected. Her support, experience, dedication, and attention to detail are far beyond that of any other photographer I have worked with in the past. Above all, she was able to ensure all of my boys enjoyed the photo session (not an easy task!). Rachael provides more than just photography services, she was able to produce a beautiful photo collage on a blank wall that I will love, cherish, and show off for years to come! I am beyond thankful to capture my family in art.
