  • The V Family Reunion - Rockaway Beach, OR

    When Mrs. V contacted me for a family reuion beach session up in Rockaway Beach, I was so excited. I love an excuse to travel, and an excuse to travel the good ol' 101 on the Oregon Coast, YES PLEASE! It was quite an adventure that included a detour into Washington State to meet Baby Cooper, and then a ferry ride back into Oregon. I didn't even know you could take a ferry across the Columbia River to get between the two states, but thanks to my trusty map app WAZE - we found out we could! 

    The V family stretches all the way from up in Alaska to down here in the southern Oregon Coast. What a blessing it was for them to be together. They rented a beautiful townhome right on the beach! 

    Family reunions are a great time to have a photographer come and capture some forever memories for you!

    Check out these beautiful images of the V Family's early morning beach session! Didn't they chose the most fabulous bright colors for the beach? 

    Something about the older grandkids playing with the younger grandkids together in the sand that makes these images just marvelous!

  • Newborn Cooper

    I met Momma M a few years back as a friend of a friend. I've had the absolute privlege of photographing her engagement session, her wedding and now her newborn's images! Swoon! Oh the joy of this job. Now meet baby Cooper. He is just magic. Absolute wonder. Filled with personality. And oh my, those dimples. Daddy J is a dirt bike rider super man, so we just had to do a sweet little image in Daddy's helmet!

    I absolutley love newborns. I adore newborn sessions. But please know a newborn session with Rachel Diane Photography is relaxed and in your home. I come to you and we spend an hour or so together (depending on baby) hanging out and taking some pictures. I love to hear all about how baby is doing and how you as a momma are adjusting to baby and everything that goes with it! It's casual and professional, fun and enjoyable, and not at all stressful! Contact us today to find out more about a maternity/newborn session with Rachel Diane Photography! 

    Please note: this sweet sweet baby was never alone or unsupported in any of the below images. These are the power of the composites and some serious photoshop magic. Momma was sitting right next to him at all of times with his head fully supported.
