story sessions

What do you want to remember about life right now? Story Sessions take the place of the sterile family photos, awkwardly posed senior pictures, and unrealistic newborn portraits. Story Sessions are a genuine take on who you are and what you are passionate about. Choose a location that speaks to you, a park you frequent, on the river in your kayak, or your own home: and I'll be there to tell your story. Scroll to learn more about what I offer!

"High-quality photos and beyond that, Rachel is a phenomenal person. So intentional and made my family and I so incredibly comfortable. I would highly recommend her for any adventure you want captured and her work with weddings is phenomenal! Thanks Rachel, you're the best!"

-Daniegeo Productions

“Rachel is incredibly personable and a joy to have around! She can capture the heart of any event and really immerses herself into the life of the moment, giving her photos a genuine, heartfelt, and authentic feel that cannot be beat!”

-Molly T.

“We booked a senior photo session with Rachel for our daughter Ashley. Rachel worked with us to decide on the perfect location and provided color suggestions for the outfits. We received our photos within a week and I am so pleased! Each and every shot captures Ashley's beauty and personality along with the charm of the location we chose. I wholeheartedly recommend Rachel and Rachel DesJardins Photography and look forward to using her again.”
