FABULOUS MOM FRIDAY: Brisham Photography

This week's Fabulous Mom is Rachel, mama to the adorable Brighton and the photographer extraordinaire behind Brisham Photography.  She took pictures of Gabrielle and Alaina in Central Park this summer in honor of their first birthday and I was blown away by the results.

I've learned recently how hard it is to photograph toddlers and the day Rachel took these pictures, it was nearly 90 degrees in a busy touristy location.  I'm not kidding - plopping down twins in tutus caused quite a commotion among people walking by.  See for yourself!

But despite all of the challenges, Rachel got so many great shots that I can't pick a favorite. 

She even managed to get a few nice pictures of the three of us.

What I love most about Rachel's photography is her attention to small details.  How cute is this shot?

So you're probably thinking, "Nice photography if you live in NYC but how does this apply to me?"  Here's the deal - Rachel is actually based in the Chicago area so if you live nearby, you're in luck.  But if you don't, she also schedules travel shoots.  She's already got Pittsburgh (next weekend), Park Ridge, IL (November 21st), Indianapolis (November 22nd), Los Angeles (February), Washington DC (March), Boston (April) and Memphis (May) on the schedule and if you can round up of 12-15 people in your area who are interested in having sessions done, she may be willing to head your way too.  Why ask someone to travel to take your photos?  Besides the fact that she's super talented, Rachel's extremely reasonable session fees include a CD with all of the images and a letter giving you the right to do whatever you want to with the photos.  Considering I've paid $200 plus for sessions in the past plus another chunk of change on prints, Rachel's fee is truly a bargain.  For wedding, engagement, family, newborn or maternity photos, you really can't go wrong!

To see more of Rachel's amazing work, learn more about her pricing or to contact her about a session, visit Brisham Photography.

Love Gabrielle and Alaina's adorable Sweet Treat onesies and coordinating tutus?  They're from TuTu Cute Designs.  I don't think the onesies are up in the store right now, but message the seller if you're interested in having some made.
