Amelia Ann

I had the joys of photographing this adorable future nerd named Amelia!  :)  This precious little girl was over 6 weeks premature and spent a long time in the hospital.  She was even still on a heart monitor during our time together for these pictures.  She was born with lots of hair, and now it basically just sticks straight up which just makes her even cuter!  Her mom is super crafty and crocheted all these fun amigurumi buddies!  If you want to order one (or ten!) for yourself, check out: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftyBardGeekGifts!  :)



I was so excited that I was able to incorporate these cute Star Wars felt characters designed by Aimee Ray into this session!  I made them myself from the kit that you can buy at Barnes and Nobles or on Amazon by going to: http://a.co/2d2zJ97!


And of course we used more nerdy amigurumi buddies that you can also get at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftyBardGeekGifts.  :)


Such tiny toes!  :)


I am not entirely sure why I am so obsessed with this picture, but I seriously love it!  Maybe it's because Amelia looks like a baby elf.  So cute!!



I LOVE capturing tiny smirks from babies, and Amelia did not disappoint!  Look at that grin!  And seriously, her hair really stands straight up!


Ugh, my heart can barely contain my joy when I photograph little babies!  I really do try to control my excitement, but I was definitely squealing a LOT during this session with Amelia.  I mean, just look again at how cute she is!  :)


If you are pregnant or just had a baby, I would love to help you capture this special stage of your baby's life that goes by so quickly!  My sessions start at $200 which includes a pre-session consultation, up to 3 hours in my studio, unlimited props, outfits, and poses, and at least 20 photographs in a private online gallery with a $50 print credit for purchasing prints and products.  :)  If that isn't what you are looking for, make sure to check out the other packages that I offer!  If you have questions, you can read through my FAQ page or contact me.

A $25 non-refundable deposit is due to book a New Life Session which is applied towards the session fee. Your due date is used to book the session and the actual date and time for the session are finalized after the baby is born. If you are interested in booking your session, you can email me at: rachelwilhelmphotography@gmail.com or if you want to explore my website more, you can go to: http://www.rachelwilhelmphotography.com/

Lily Eden

This is my beautiful little niece!  Isn't she so precious??!!  She did a great job during her photo sessions!  She was so easy to work with!  She loved being wrapped up, so that is what we did!  She was pretty wide awake during parts of it, but she didn't get upset.  She just wanted to see what was going on.  :)  I was thrilled to get a little smirk out of her.  :)

Ben's Senior Session

This photo session happened on a whim, but I am so glad it happened!  Ben is such a great guy, and I have had the privilege of watching him grow up, so it was an honor for me to get to do his senior photos!  It's hard for me to believe that he is graduating!  Thankfully he won't be that far away, and I know he will be coming home for visits.  :)  Ben is so chill that all you need is a bag of pretzels and a comfy chair to keep him happy.  Oh and maybe a baby duck.  ;)  Anyways, we had a fun time with the pictures!  It was pretty warm and uncomfortably bright at times, but he toughed it out.  :)  These are some of my favorites!










Congratulations Ben!  I am praying that God will guide you and give you the strength to persevere as you start this new chapter of your life!  Have fun at college!  :)

afO's A Wrinkle in Time

I have to admit that I had definitely heard of the book A Wrinkle in Time, but I apparently never read it.  Let's just say I was thoroughly confused when this play started because I didn't realize that it was science fiction.  You see, all for One had never done anything that fell into that category before, so I just wasn't expecting it.  I was surprised and incredibly impressed with the entire play and how afO produced it!  It was SO good!  I hope that if you have never gone to a afO production that you will make it a priority to see what they do!  They are a great company!  And now, enough of this, check out the pictures, and I hope you enjoy!  :)

Tarcil's 3rd Costume Edition eBook!

This is from one of my other blogs which focuses on my little hamster named Tarcil.  I am so excited to announce this that I had to share it on here too! I have been working on this for a few months. This will be the final eBook I make of Tarcil, so you don't want to miss it! 

This eBook is 60 pages of Tarcil in adorable handmade costumes! Read the stories of each character he dressed up as! You can purchase this eBook for $2.99 on Amazon! :) Below you can see a sample of what is inside! I thought the St. Patrick's Day and Easter were perfect for this time of year! I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! Tarcil is really enjoying being spoiled when he is awake, which isn't often. He is normally curled up, sleeping in his nest. He currently has his nest where I can see him, which is super convenient for me to check on him every couple hours. I truly appreciate all the well-wishes for Tarcil! The love and support I have gotten from everyone is such a blessing!




Thank you for your support!

Blankets and Baskets

This is a sample of some of the baskets and blankets that I love to work with!  I often get more when I find things I like, so this will never be a complete showcase of what I have to offer.  As you can tell, I love the fluffy blankets!!  Sometimes I buy fabric I like and hem the sides to make my own blankets.
