Denver Family Photography

Rachael Grace photography

For all the moments that make your heart burst

This is laid back portrait photography for busy young families.

I'm a Denver based family portrait photographer. I'm a closet hippy that dreams of owning a mountain cabin to get away from the hustle of the city. My phone is full of photos I rarely print (I'm trying to be better!) and my kids eat peanut butter and jelly almost every day. Whether you crave a way to hold onto that newborn snuggle with newborn photos or the wild personality of your three year old with a family session, then you're in the right place.

Last Saturday you shuttled one kid to soccer practice, driving through Starbucks on the way.  Your mind shifted through your to do list, Target, laundry, RSVP to Ollie’s birthday party…  In the midst of your daily ‘must do’s’ your mind wonders to the day a few months ago that you threw caution to the wind and ran off with the family to the mountains for the day.  Hours of adventure and the sun warming every inch of your body.  The kids smiled ear to ear the entire day and you couldn’t help but wish you had pictures of the day.  Pictures of a day that felt so close to pure bliss.

Family portrait sessions are in your home or doing what you love so you’re most comfortable and free to be yourself for the camera.  I don’t pose you, instead I invite you to do what your family normally does and we capture the love and connection already in your family.

Newborn sessions also take place in your home.  There’s no need to stress, just bond and snuggle with your newborn while we capture all the memories you want to hold onto

Family Life Session

Who this is for:
Mama’s who cherish the small in between moments.  The moments that make your heart burst with a joy you never knew was possible till you had children.
You will always remember your baby’s ‘first’ but before you know it, that adorable thing they always did, won’t happen anymore.  The way he always crossed his feet when he was sitting.  Or the way she would run to your room first thing in the morning begging you to read to her.
Those are the moments you want to hold onto.

Book a session to keep those memories as vivid as the day they happened.

Stress Free Sessions

Imagine your favorite laid back day with your family. What are the memories you'll miss most about right now? Let's design a session centered on that. We'll capture all the memories you never want to forget in a documentary way.

Why photograph your life?

What are your favorite memories from childhood? Do you have photos of them? Can you remember what it felt like to ride your bike on a sunny summer afternoon? Or a hug from mom as you ran through the kitchen after school? Life is more than just a pretty picture. It's memories and stories. Don't just photograph life's milestones, photograph the daily life moments because they are just as important to who you are as a family.

Gorgeous Heirloom Albums

We all have 1000's of photos sitting on our hard drives, me included. Let's design an album together that will be enjoyed for decades to come by everyone in the family.

About Me

I photograph busy young families who are totally ready for family photos that are not only fun but tell the story of where they’re at right now.
You want to remember the blissful moments among the chaos that fills your days.
I help slow the moments down and connect among the crazy.

I’ve been featured on the Huffington Post, Martha Stewart Weddings, Grey Likes, Couture Colorado, and many others.

When I’m not photographing amazing families or helping other moms in the Facebook Group, Mothering From the Heart, I’m being a mom to our two small people.  D made me a mom and has been teaching me what it means to love unconditional every since.  C is the boy I never knew I wanted.  He’s the bubbly happy soul that makes every day feel like a gift.  My husband and I live in downtown Denver where we love to get outdoors and in the mountains as much as possible.
