My mission is to capture precious moments in time so they become preserved, cherished memories.

Wife, mama, sweet tea lover, and wanna be homesteader here! You can find me wearing workout clothes when i'm not working out, rocking too much dry shampoo, and trying to manage the chaos daily. I love to take on DIY projects,  and Goodwill is my happy place. I reside with the love of my life just south of Charlottesville, VA where we are raising our family on a small farm.
Oh- and I take a lot of photos.

Hi friends,

R

ebecca here!

My hope in working with you is to provide not just beautiful photographs, but a means of lifetime access to precious, preserved memories. I hope when you look at your photos (whether when I deliver the gallery, when you walk past the prints in your hallway, or flip through the album 15 years down the road) your heart is able to go back in time to the very moment photographed and take it in, all over again (and again). 

My hope in working with you

xo,

Rebecca

I am a (mostly) natural light photographer serving Charlottesville, VA and surrounding areas. 
My mission is to capture moments of life so they can become cherished, preserved memories. I like to say my style falls somewhere between posed and lifestyle photography. I love and appreciate a classic beautiful photo, but I never want to miss an opportunity to document the real- the everyday. The older I become and the more I practice the art form, I have fallen more and more in love with the power of photography. 
Photographs preserve memories and emotions that fade. 
My hope in working with you is to provide not just beautiful photographs, but a means of lifetime access to precious, preserved memories. I hope when you look at your photos (whether when I deliver the gallery, when you walk by your prints in the hallway, or flip through your album 15 years down the road) your heart is able to go back in time to the very moment photographed and take it in, all over again (and again). 

Can’t wait to capture your story!

I am married to my better half, Anthony, and we have two little boys named Micah Christian and Ezra James, and beautiful little girl named Eden Grace. We reside on a small farm in Scottsville, VA, which we feel so blessed to call home. I am originally from outside of Atlanta, GA, but could not be happier about planting my family roots in Virginia! 
My husband and I have another business, Caldwell Trading Co., where we sell custom built farmhouse tables and signs. (www.caldwelltradingco.com)
Outside of my love for photography, I love to spend time with my family- nothing is more important to me! I love Jesus, a tall glass of sweet tea, and being outside. I start too many projects (it may be a strength and a weakness). I love to make things- flipping furniture, homemade soap, baking treats just to name a few. 
Although I wear many hats, motherhood is my most treasured and most important job. I am so grateful the Lord is allowing me to raise two (and hopefully more) of His precious children. The days are long, but the years, oh so short, and I never want to forget them. 
Every chapter is a season that will fade and a new one will start before we know it. God is writing me a beautiful story and I cannot wait to see how it unfolds.

We used Rebecca for our maternity and newborn session. We love all of our photographs. I already have so many displayed around the house and we have received so many compliments. Her work is amazing, but she is just as amazing. She was so patient and understanding with our crazy toddler. She also truly cares about her clients. Can't wait to have her capture many more family moments.

"Absolutely Amazing!!! Had such a great time during the shoot! Our pictures were incredible! I couldn't be any happier with them! And got the pictures back super fast! You can tell Rebecca's heart is in every photo she takes! She is simply incredible! Already planning when we can use her again!"

Rebecca provides top-notch, quality, lifestyle photos and has a keen eye that really captures the essence of special moments with family. She is professional, yet warm and relatable during the shoot, which makes everyone feel super comfortable, including temperamental young kids. It's obvious she has a ton of experience with kids and knows how to capture their attention with ease. She is laid back and open to taking a break if a kiddo needs it, which takes the "on the clock" pressure off. You can spend three to four-fold her cost booking Charlottesville's best known and highest rated photographers; but frankly, you won't come home with any better of a final product, nor a better experience. She loves her job, and it shows! I expect that she will be among Cville's up and coming!

Rebecca was amazing to work with. She was quick to respond when scheduling and easy to schedule time with. We did a newborn lifestyle session and the pictures turned out amazing. Already looking forward to booking another session with her.

— K.S.

We had our photos done by Rebecca recently and it was awesome! I typically hate having my picture taken and Rebecca made my family and I feel comfortable. We had a great time, Rebecca was awesome to work with and our pictures were ready super quickly and came out better than I could have ever imagined. Thanks, Rebecca! We will definitely be back!!

— R.L.

Was amazing, especially with cranky two year old twins - magically she was able to catch photos of everyone smiling and happy! Even the candids were adorable and she was SO quick to get the gallery to us. Wonderful to work with!
